Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of the Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers is made out of a man-made compound that is designed to be lightweight and durable, as well as provide you with a decent amount of traction while you are on the go. You will be able to rest easy knowing that these shoes are going to help you stay on your feet the best they can while you are out and about, no need to worry about your feet slipping out from underneath you causing you to fall and potentially injure yourself or someone else.

They do feature a heel height of about one and a half inches so these sneakers are going to give you a little bit of extra height while you are wearing them, as well as some extra durability, especially for those of you who are heel strikers. This extra material under your heel will help ensure the lifespan of your shoes lasts just a little bit longer.

The best feature of the outsoles, however, is the Ultra Pillars. They are crystalized rubber pods that are strategically placed under your feet that will react with every step that you take, giving you optimal comfort and a responsive ride that customers can appreciate.
Midsole

Midsole

The Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers have a midsole that is made up of Skechers Ultra Go technology to ensure that you get a great underfoot experience while you are wearing them. This technology is designed to be lightweight and highly responsive, giving you a little spring in your step while you are on the go. On top of the already cushioned midsole sits some extra padding in the form of Skechers Air Cooled Goga Mat insole for a more personalized fit, as it will shape you your foot giving you a fantastic feel. The insole is extremely breathable and will help keep air flowing throughout the shoe, keeping you relatively cool and dry while you are out and about.

Whether you are working in retail and have to be on your feet all day, or you are going out for long leisurely walking your feet will thank you by the end of the day thanks to the amazing amount of cushioning located in the midsole of these sneakers.
Uppers

Uppers

The Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers have uppers that are made out of a soft woven canvas to help ensure they will not rip and tear too easily, as well as provide you with a lightweight and breathable feel to give you a pleasant in-shoe experience.

The woven materials ensure that the shoes are going to be extremely well ventilated, allowing a decent amount of air to flow into the foot chamber. As mentioned above, the Goga Mat insole is also going to help increase the breathability level of these shoes. As long as the air can get into the shoe, that means that they any sweat from your feet will be able to quickly and easily evaporate and escape the shoes, keeping your feet dry. Dry shoes and socks help improve the overall health of your feet which is an added bonus.
Comfort

Comfort

Customers praise the high comfort level of these shoes. They have so much to offer in the way of comfort that it is hard not to fall in love with them. The outsole has the Ultra Pillars which are crystalized rubber pods that react with each step you take, drastically increasing the level of comfort you get with each step you take.

Additionally, the midsole is made out of Skechers Ultra Go technology that gives you a squishy cushioned layer to walk on. Sitting on top of that is the Air Cooled Goga Mat insole to give you a more personalized feeling, conforming to your specific foot shape giving you the support you need where you need.

Finally, the uppers are made out of soft woven canvas material with an even softer fabric lining. The uppers are going to give you a decent amount of flexibility and room to wiggle your toes, while still providing you with the locked in and secure feeling you need for proper support. The soft lining is there to help reduce the risk of your skin rubbing uncomfortably along the inside of the sneakers, helping prevent nasty blisters that could occur.
Style

Style

Overall, customers seem to like the look and design of the Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief walking shoes. They have a couple of color options so there is sure to be something that will best fit your personal wants and needs. They are available in white, red, khaki, and navy. No matter what color you decide to go with, they will feature a white sole. Some customers mentioned that they would have liked to have seen some more color options, but that did not seem to be a deal breaker for most people.

The solid color design of the uppers has brushed finish to help improve the look of them. They have canvas overlays throughout the uppers to help improve durability and support. They have a slip-on design so there are no laces donning the sneakers, but they do have a Quick-Fit loop on the heel panel to help get them on and off. Finishing off the look is Skechers 'S' logo on the side.
Durability

Durability

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you find something that is going to be durable and last you a while. It can be extremely frustrating when you spend your hard earned money on a pair of shoes, only to have them fall apart after you wear them a couple of times. When it comes to the Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers, they have a moderate price tag, not too high but definitely not the cheapest on the market, so you are going to hope they will not suffer from premature wear and tear. That being said, that is not really too much of a problem when it comes to the longevity of these shoes. Yes, there are some reviewers who stated they had problems with the shoes wearing down quickly, but that does not seem to happen with most users. The outsole is made out of rubber, with the Ultra Pillars located on the bottom that is designed to help increase the lifespan of the sneakers, among other things. The canvas uppers have additional canvas overlays in some of the more high wear areas so you can be sure they are not going to rip or tear very easily.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to your shoes, especially ones you will be wearing for walking, you are going to want to make sure you find something that is going to be relatively lightweight. You do not want to feel like you have some extra, unnecessary, weight attached at your ankles that are going to hold you back or slow you down. The good news about the Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers is that you will not have to worry about the weight, as every part of them from the uppers to the outsole were designed to keep the weight low so they could virtually feel weightless on your feet. Weighing in, on average, of only 5.55 ounces for a size 7 puts them at the low end of the spectrum when comparing the weight to other similar products and walking shoes.
Support

Support

Support is an essential feature for your sneakers. You are going to want whatever you put on your feet to offer you the support and security that you need for the task at hand. The Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers are designed as a pair of walking shoes and as such, they are going to give you a moderate amount of support, but quite as much as you might get from a pair of running shoes or work boots. They do not have a lacing system, as they are slip-ons, but that does not mean that they cannot keep you locked in and safe. You are not going to have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside of your shoes while you are on the go.

These shoes are, however, considered to be a neutral walking shoe and as such, they are not going to offer a lot of lateral or medial support that some walkers might require. If you are going to be doing any kind of pivoting or walking up and down a lot of hills these might not be the best choice for you. As for arch support, customers have complained that there is not quite enough there. Yes, there is a decent amount of padding underfoot and the Goga Mat insole helps mold to your feet, but for some walkers, it just does not do a good enough job of supporting their high arches.
Fit

Fit

The way your shoes fit is extremely important to your overall comfort level. You want to make sure that these shoes are going to fit you snuggly enough that your feet won't unintentionally slip out of your shoes, but at the same time, you want to make sure that they are not going to be too tight that they will pinch and squish your feet uncomfortably. The great thing about the Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers is that they are running fairly true to size so that is going to take a lot of the guesswork out of deciding what size you should order. If you are unsure or simply want to double check yourself you can always consult a sizing chart. It is better to make sure before you order them so you can get the correct size the first time. You do not want to have to deal with the hassle of having to return them and reorder them to get the correct fit.
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

The Skechers Go Walk Evolution Ultra-Belief sneakers are incredibly responsive which is something that many reviewers appreciate, especially those who are wearing them while out walking. With each step you take, your feet will sink into the foam cushioning of the sole. The padding will then try to quickly and efficiently bounce back into its original shape, giving you a little push into your next step. This propulsion will help you save just a little bit of energy with each step you take that can help you push a little harder while you are out walking. It is not only the fantastic midsole, however, that provides your responsive ride. The Ultra Pillars located throughout the outsole also helps. It works almost the same. When you step down it will push the pillars down, then when you start to let up when you lead into your next step, the pillars will bounce back pushing your forward. Customers greatly appreciate the little spring in their step that they get when they are walking around in these fantastic sneakers.
