The Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra walking shoes are an all-around great pair of sneakers that customers adore. They have a stylish look to them, even though some customers mentioned they would like to see some better color options. The best part about them, however, is that they feel amazing. The uppers hug your feet, feeling like you’re simply wearing a pair of socks, and the underfoot experience you will get is phenomenal. Whether you are going out for a long walk or you are standing all day for work, your feet will thank you at the end of the day. Yes, there are some flaws to these shoes but that is common with almost anything. There does seem to be some problems with the durability of the outsole, but the cheap price tag helps make replacing them feet a little bit better. There is also a lack of lateral support and almost no arch support which can be a deal breaker for a lot of people. Overall, however, customers seem to really like the feeling of walking around in these shoes.

Editor's Pros & Cons

  • Slip-On convenience
  • Well-ventilated foot chamber
  • Budget-friendly price tag
Cons
  • Sizing is not consistent
Outsole

Outsole

There is not a whole lot to the outsole of these sneakers. In fact, the midsole is what serves as the main platform of the outsole with crystallized rubber pods donning the underside of the sole to help increase your traction and the lifespan of your shoes. These pods, or ULTRA PILLARS, are strategically placed along the bottoms of the shoe to give you extra protection where you need it and to help you keep a decent grip while you are out for a stroll.

These sneakers are going to be able to hold quite the grip on a plethora of surfaces. This is extremely important when you are out and about, you do not want to have to worry about hitting a wet spot on the floor and having your feet slip out from underneath you causing you to fall and hurt yourself. You are even going to have a decent amount of protection if you happen to stumble on some more abrasive surfaces, like gravel roads, which is not something that all walking shoes on the market can boast.
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole of the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra walking shoes is made out using the Ultra Go technology which is basically a cushioning unit that is designed to be both lightweight and responsive while at the same time providing you with superior comfort and some decent protection to your feet. Additionally, these shoes feature an Air Cooled Goga Mat insole to help give you even more responsiveness while still being able to keep its cushioning even after walking on them day after day.

This insole is also going to help the air circulate throughout the sneakers, allowing the air to keep your feet relatively cool and dry while you are out and about. Working with the breathable uppers these shoes are going to do a decent job at helping prevent you from overheating while on the go.
Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra walking shoes are made using a SOCKNIT360 design. They are made to hug your foot like a sock to keep your shoe snug and comfortable around your foot. They are extremely lightweight and have a stretch and seamless design so you will have a phenomenal experience while wearing them. The fact that they are seamless is great because you will not have to worry about those pesky seams rubbing uncomfortably across your skin causing you to get sores or blisters. Additionally, if there are no seams then there is less worry about the shoe durability as you will not have to worry about them giving out and causing the shoes to tear.

One of the better features, however, about the uppers is that they are made of extremely breathable materials to give you a great deal of air flow into the foot chamber. It is important to have a pair of shoes that are well ventilated, as it will help keep your feet from overheating while you are out and about. The breathable uppers mixed with the above mentioned Goga Mat insole ensures that your feet will not feel like they are suffocating inside of your shoes. Since the air can get it and keep you cooled down, that also means that the sweat from your feet will be able to more easily and quickly evaporate, escaping the shoes. This is going to help ensure that your feet stay as dry as possible, which in turn promotes a healthier environment for your feet.
Weight

Weight

When you are in the market for a good pair of walking shoes you are going to want to try to find something that is going to be relatively lightweight. You do not want to be out for a long walk and feel like you have weights attached to your feet that can make it seem like they are slowing you down or holding you back. That is not something that you will have to worry about with the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra sneakers. They are designed to keep the weight off so you can have a more pleasant walking experience. The stretchable SOCKNIT360 materials that make up the uppers are one of the biggest contributors to keeping the weight low on these great sneakers, as they do not add any unnecessary weight to them. These shoes weigh in, on average, at only 7.5 ounces which is on the low end of the spectrum when compared to other similar products.
Style

Style

For the most part, customers like the look and style of these shoes. They have a slip-on design but also feature a lacing structure at the midfoot of the shoe to give you a little extra support. They have a full-coverage upper that is designed to cover the entirety of your foot with a sock-like snugness. They have included a pull tab on the heel of the shoes to help aid you in putting them on.

There are only a couple of color options that you can choose from if you are planning on purchasing these shoes. Some customers did mention that they would have loved to have seen a better color selection but for the most part, people were content with the choices they had. You will be able to choose between black and gray, black and red, charcoal and orange, or a fun black and multi-colored option. No matter what color scheme you decided to go with you will receive the Skechers "S" logo on the side of the shoe as well as the words "Skechers Go Walk" on the tongue.
Comfort

Comfort

When it comes to your shoes you will want to ideally find something that is going to be comfortable while you are wearing them, especially if you are going to be doing a lot of walking or standing on your feet for extended periods of time. That great thing about the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra sneakers is that they offer a fantastic amount of comfort that your feet will thank you for at the end of a long day. There are so many features incorporated into these great shoes that your feet will love.

The sock-like fit of the uppers are incredibly soft and hug your feet, giving your feet a decent amount of wiggle room and comfort while you are on the go. They seamless design helps prevent uncomfortable and irritating chafing which can cause blisters which always greatly appreciated.

Most of the comfort from these shoes, however, comes from your underfoot experience. The midsole is made using Skechers Ultra Go technology which gives you a comfortable and lightweight base to stand on. On to of the midsole sits an Air Cooled Goga Mat insole to help keep your feet cool and dry as well as add an impressive amount of extra comfort. Finally, underneath all of that cushioning are Skechers Ultra Pillars, which are crystalized rubber pods that are strategically placed on the bottoms of the shoes to help give you added cushioning. Customers seem to agree that the amount of underfoot comfort in these sneakers is amazing.
Support

Support

When you are purchasing your walking shoes you want to make sure that you have a decent amount of support to help keep you safe while you are on the go. That being said, these shoes offer a decent amount of support in some aspects but they are severely lacking in others.

You will get a locked-in feel and a secure fit with these sneakers. They have a slip-on design but they also feature a lacing system that is put into place to enhance the fit and make sure that your feet stay where they are supposed to be. The uppers allow you some wiggle room while you are walking, but they will also ensure that you do not have to worry about slipping and sliding inside of your shoes or even falling out of them while you are on the go.

Unfortunately, because of the soft and super flexible materials of the uppers, these shoes do not offer much when it comes to lateral support. If you are going to be doing a lot of side to side movement then these might not be the best option for you. Additionally, customers said that they are not the best option for walking up and down hills either, as the uppers do not give you enough support for such a task.

As for arch support, these shoes do not offer a lot. Customers have complained about the lack of cushioning under their arches so that is something that you might want to keep in mind. If you are going to need that extra support then these might not be the best walking shoes for you.
Durability

Durability

There are mixed reviews when it comes to the durability of these shoes. For the most part, customers are happy with the amount of use they get out of their sneakers but there are some reviewers who were less than pleased. Most of the durability issues stem from the outsole. The fact that there is not much of an actual outsole and most of the platform is actually the exposed midsole which does not have a whole lot of durability. The soles feature crystalized rubber pods known as Ultra Pillars that work to help increase the lifespan of the sneakers, but they do not always do as good of a job as some people might like.

One of the most durable features on the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra walking shoes, however, is the uppers. They have a seamless design and are made out of good quality materials that do not tend to rip or tear very easily.
Fit

Fit

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you get a pair that is going to fit you properly to get the most out of the available support and get an optimal level of comfort. In the case of the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra sneakers, you are going to want to make sure the shoes fit you snuggly, but not too tight that they squish your feet and cause you pain and discomfort.

Unfortunately, many customers have had complaints about the sizing of these shoes and how they fit. It seems to be very inconsistent which is rather frustrating. Customers commented that they would buy a pair of the shoes in a size that fit rather well so bought a second pair in a different color, in the same size, and they fit completely differently. Keep this in mind when trying to determine what size you will need to order.
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

Customers can appreciate the high level of responsiveness that they can receive from these sneakers thanks to the Ultra Go midsole and the additional Air Cooled Goga Mat insole. These two layers of padding combine to give you a nice and responsive ride with a high energy return that people adore.

When you take a step and your foot hits the ground, it will sink into the padding of the midsole. The foam that makes up the soles of these shoes will try to quickly and efficiently bounce back into its original shape, propelling you forward into your next step, saving you a little bit of energy. Since you do not have to use as much energy moving from one step to another you will have a little more to push yourself, maybe extending the length of your walk, or speeding it up a bit.

Regardless of what you are doing or where you are going while wearing these sneakers, you appreciate the little spring in your step you get while you are out and about,

Bottom Line

If you are in the market for a decent pair of walking shoes then you might want to consider the Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra sneakers. They look great and feel even better on your feet. They have an amazing underfoot feeling that your feet will thank you for after a long day. They do, however, lack some support so that is something that you might want to keep in mind. Overall though, these are an all-around great pair of shoes that customers adore.
