Shoe Review: Skechers GORun Maxroad 4 Hyper

Here we go again and boy were we excited about this one, as many others are as well. It is the new Skechers GORun Maxroad 4 Hyper (what a mouthful) and it’s available now. Before we go any further, let’s just say the name is terrible and yes we know it, but we’re moving past it. Around here we just call it the Maxroad 4 to keep it simple so ...

Shoe Review: Skechers GOrun 7 Hyper

We have tested numerous versions of the Skechers GOrun lineup and the introduction of the new GOrun 7 Hyper finally brings us something truly compelling. Skechers has blended together the midsole from their highly successful Razor 3, added a whole new knit upper all to create a more responsive, lighter, and more performance oriented version of their staple road runner. The question remains if it is better than what they ...

Shoe Review: Skechers GOrun Razor 3 Hyper

This will forever be the story of a really solid shoe with an incredibly horrible name, it's the Skechers GOrun Razor 3 Hyper or the shoe with a giant SPEED on the side. This shoe is a straight competitor that can go head to head with Nike's new VaporFly Zoom Fly platform and uses much of the same methodologies in its design. They are meant to be fast, an explosive ...

However, the shoes are still solid and even moreso their Performance lineup is much stronger than people think.

Skechers GoRUN 7 3

Shoe Review: Skechers GOrun Ride 7

Let's start this off with some real honesty, Skechers gets no respect when it comes to performance running, and it's totally unjustified. There, we said it. They have been cranking out shoes that are lighter weight and more responsive than many other brands for the last few years and every year, they just get better and better. There does tend to be little quirks, primarily in the upper design, but ...

Skechers GoRUN Forza 3 2

Shoe Review: Skechers GOrun Forza 3

In the broader Skechers lineup, the Forza platform tends to be forgotten as you look at models like the GOrun. It is a stability shoe with some support elements, but given its weight and level of features under the hood, this feels remiss. The Forza has become a strong platform that has been improving and this is more than clear with the new GOrun Forza 3. Construction: Upper The upper is fully ...

Trail Running Shoe Showdown 2016: Racing

I am consistently asked what my favorite shoes are and my answer is always the same, it depends. What terrain are you on, distances are you covering, what’s your pace, any lower extremity conditions, etc. These are all the questions I ask and even then I can return a list of what might work for you, but from that point it’s up to you. I don’t believe in the perfect ...
