GO FLEX Walk is a Sketchers sneaker that's specifically designed for athletic walking. What's most unique about the shoe is a soft knitted upper, which is combined with an articulated segmented sole, which flexibly matches proper anatomical alignments. This means that the shoe is able to bend and flex in ways that most shoes with solid soles simply can't.

Inside the shoe itself, there's also plenty of cushioning to absorb the impact of walking motions, with memory foam reinforcement around sensitive areas like the heel and Goga Mat technology for the insole.

The design of the laceless GO FLEX Walk Skechers sneaker is reflective of a growing consumer desire for shoes in particular that are tailored to specific activities that are more agile and able to move in a way that's better aligned to the body.
