The following video shows the look of Gowalk 4 – Pursuit on feet. The presenter introduced the Grey(charcoal), Navy and the black colourways. A Skechers expert talked about the shoes features and why they are so comfortable and lightweight. In terms of lightweight and flexibility, she explained that the outsole is made from 5GEN technology – the outsole material was engineered to be lighter and provide bouncy effect in every walking gait. She added that the Goga Pillars also provide additional support in absorbing shock.
Here is the video:
Skecher GoWalk 4 – Pursuit is a walking shoe designed in variety of women sizes. The shoe offers the comfort you could expect from any walking shoe. With the 5GEN midsole and the Goga Max insole, the shoe provides bouncy effect and all day comfortable feel. Goga pillars are additional special features that support the midsole in absorbing shock and providing needed comfort.
The GoWalk 4 – Pursuit features athletic fabric mesh upper which expands naturally and changes with the shape of the foot during walking gait. The upper was designed with proper breathability in mind to keep the foot fresh and cool. Expansion of the engineered mesh upper also provides a comfortable, natural fit. The mesh underneath embraced a contrasting colour to make GoWalk 4 -Pursuit looks more stylish.
Soft fabric overlays at the toe, heel, and instep provide some level of supports to increase the shoe durability. At the back is a quick-Fit Portal which makes it very easy to slip on and off.
On the midsole is a Skechers 5GEN cushioning material. The material was designed to be lightweight, flexible and responsive. The 5GEN midsole provides a bouncy effect and absorbs shock in every step. These kinds of functionalities help prevent injuries, provide proper support and make the foot feels comfortable all day.
Additional support and comfort are also provided by the Goga Max insole. The Goga Max insole features bamboo lined footbed for anti bacterial odour control.
Another noticeable feature about the midsole is its tapering midfoot design for better arch support.
The midsole can also be referred to as the outsole. It was designed to be as lightweight as possible and features 4 Goga pillars or cushion pods: two at the heel and two at the forefoot. These features enable bouncy and responsive effect for every step of walking. They absorb impact shock in every gait, making them supportive features for providing comfort. The outsole was designed to be durable and prevent quick wear.
The Skechers GoWalk 4 – Pursuit is praised for its comfort, lightweight and flexibility. The 5GEN cushioning midsole, Goga Pillars and Goga Max were appreciated by many users for the comfort and support they deliver. Though the upper was designed to be highly breathable and lightweight, there are few users that complained about sweaty feet after wearing it for a long people. One thing most reviewers cannot dispute is its comfort. The price is appreciated by the budget conscious individual.
Overall, the shoe is one of the best options for women looking for a comfortable, lightweight, and supportive walking shoe. It’s worth noting that there are people that feel like the shoe runs narrow and there are some that feel like it runs big.
Advice: for those that need wide fit, it’s better to go half a size up or try it in a store before ordering online and vice versa for those that need narrow fit.
