Skechers GOrun 7+ Hyper Review

The GOrun 7 was actually a fantastic shoe, but the upper left a little to be desired for quite a few people both in appearance and somewhat in function. To that end, Skechers did the ultimate and just scrapped it and introduced an entire new radial knit upper that is the GOrun 7+ Hyper. Quick ...

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 ...
