Support

When it comes to your walking shoes, you want to make sure that you are getting a decent amount of support. The Skechers Performance Men's Go Walk 4 sneakers offer some arch support. However, some consumers commented that they lacked in that department.

The midsole of the Skechers Performance Men's Go Walk 4 shoes features Goga Pillars that give you a more anatomically correct design as well as 5GEN cushioning for arch support.

The Skechers Performance Men's Go Walk 4 sneakers have mixed reviews when it comes to durability. Most customers believe that the slip-ons have decent durability, although not the best out there.

Fit

In order to get the most out of the comfort level of your sneakers, you want to make sure that you are getting a pair that fit you correctly. You want them to be tight enough that your feet will stay inside of them, but at the same time not too tight that they are rubbing uncomfortably on your feet.
