Turn what you know about shoes upside down and inside out. Normal shoe construction puts the comfy stuff close to the foot and in the middle of the sole, with the harder, more supportive material, on the outside close to the ground. A stiff, inflexible outsole is inherently more unstable on rough terrain. GoLite® improves on this conventional thinking with a sole that is softer against the ground and a more stable, firmer layer inside, closer to the foot where it belongs. This construction provides a more stable and comfortable ride. GoLite's 'Soft Against the Ground' system takes the beating... not your joints.
Like their name implies, GoLite® Footwear's line of trail running, fast packing, multi-purpose and travel footwear are built to be durable and lightweight. They do that by using technical innovation, the latest materials, design inspired by nature, and a comprehensive understanding of biomechanics. GoLite® strives to break compromises and continues to produce the highest performing, most protective, most durable, AND lightest outdoor products in the industry.
GoLite® Footwear's 'Soft Against the Ground' construction, premium materials inside and out and attention to detail provide the style, fit, support and durability that can be equally at home on the trail or around town. The Paw Pad™ outsole delivers the stability and comfort like no other shoe you have ever worn.
PreciseFit™ Footbed System
Fits a Narrow, Medium or Wide Width Because no two feet are the same, the PreciseFit™ footbed accommodates most foot widths while providing instant width adjustment. This ensures a customizable fit straight out of the box. There's no need to hunt for an extra wide or extra narrow style. The PreciseFit™ footbeds will provide you the perfect fit for any occasion. The PreciseFit™ system is the standard for every pair of GoLite® Footwear.

I use these shoes for walking. They're extremely well made, sturdy and were easy to break in. I chose this offbeat raspberry color which I'm enjoying; it's fun and feminine. I like the inserts in the foot bed which offer a little extra padding for your sole and moderate arch support. You have the choice to remove a portion of the insert if the shoe feels too tight, or you can remove it all together as I've done in order to use a custom orthotic. I have a 2nd pair of these shoes because they're the best all around shoe I've found in a long time. I'm a mature woman and comfort is so important. It's great to find a sports shoe that has good support but is youthful and stylish too.Read more » « Show less June 23, 2012 by Anonymous

These shoes have a cool feature that I have never seen anywhere else. They ship as a medium (B) but can be changed to a narrow (A) or a wide (D) depending on the addition or removal of a portion of the foot bed (instructions inside). They have good cushion & support, are very lightweight, and are a very cute alternative to tennis shoes, especially with jeans or shorts. They also have excellent traction which would make them ideal for hiking and other outdoor activities. They run small, so I would highly recommend ordering up a half size. (I normally wear a 9 but needed a 9 1/2 in these). Alas, as great as they feel at first, after a half hour or so my feet start to hurt, which is always the case with shoes that are too narrow for my crazy-wide (EE) feet. However, because I have faith they will be comfortable with the proper width, I am trying again with the men's version.

I was searching for the perfect, comfortable, cool-looking sneaker-type shoes on the Zappos website, and the GoLite line kept catching my eye. What convinced me to try these shoes was a review by a woman who needed good shoes for dog agility, which I also do, and I am so glad that I bought these shoes. I absolutely love them! I have told all my dog-agility friends about these sneakers. I take a size 8 and that fit perfectly. I want a whole wardrobe full of these shoes! They are so light, and so comfortable. They are highly recommend!

Love these shoes. Have 2 pairs and wear them all the time. Have had 2 foot surgeries in the past year so my feet are very sensitive. I can wear these all day and my legs don't get tired. Like wearing them more than athletic shoes. The size was perfect. I did add my own insoles with more of an arch support.

This is one of the best shoes I have ever owned. I am a bit of a shoe fanatic. Particular. The GoLite Lava exceeded my expectations. It felt great on my foot from the minute I put it on. Natural. Above and beyond, it is as stylish as the day is long. I can assure you...I am now the envy of all my friends. Great shoe. Seriously.
