Skechers Go Walk Revolution Ultra Review
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.
- Superior all-day comfort
- Slip-On convenience
- Well-ventilated foot chamber
- Budget-friendly price tag
- Sizing is not consistent
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
