Shoe Review: Skechers GOmeb Razor

​Okay, before you continue reading this review let’s check those Skechers related reservations at the door. We’ve just finished our second season looking at the Skechers Performance line and as you will see with the GOmeb Razor and the GOrun 5, you need to check them out. People see the brand name and immediately think discount or something their parent or grandparent might wear, but they should instead see names like Meb Keflezighi and Kara Goucher who left other manufacturers and really helped create this Performance lineup. I’m going to get off my soapbox now, so let’s move into our review of the GOmeb Razor.

Shoe Review: Skechers GoRUN 4

Okay, so this is the third pair of Skechers I have looked at now and I’m not quite sure what to think. When I first saw Meb was the spokesperson for Skechers and would be helping them with the performance design aspect of the shoes I was curious, but my expectations were obviously low given their target market at the time.

Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 Review

Shoe Review: Skechers GOmeb Speed 3

The word fast doesn’t spring to mind when someone says the name Skechers and up until a year or so ago, even the word running probably wasn’t the first thing you thought of either. I mean Skechers are designed for kids and teens are all blinged out and you can buy them at your local mall right? Most of the running world thought this way as well and then Meb Keflezighi won Boston in a pair, leading from the gun, and the world did a double take. The new GOmeb Speed 3 is the result of Meb’s relationship with Skechers and we got to take them for a spin.
