Skechers GOrun

13 Feb

In the new Super Bowl Skechers GOrun commercial, Mr. Quiggley replaces Kim Kardashian. He shows his super-fast speed in the dog race but how effective are the new running shoes?

Skechers Company says that it helps perform better because of “Goimpulse sensors.” The sensors help send impulses to the body which enhances sensory feedback. It’ll get you going a lot faster because of lightweight material. This minimalistic shoe helps

  • Does GOrun actually help?

The idea of a minimalist shoe is not new because Reebok and Nike have come out with similar models but Skechers has a new approach to this type of market. Christian Burke says “This thing takes a completely new approach and this is the only shoe that I know of that gives me a surface on my mid-foot to run on.” He recently ran in these shoes in the Born to Run 100k and placed 2nd. The flexibility of GOrun enables runners to have a different stride as well as the sensors in the mid-foot. The design of the shoe contributes to the shoe’s effectiveness because it doesn’t imitate the “barefoot design” like most sneakers. Whether or not you’re a runner, you’ll definitely enjoy running in this shoe.

  • Does GOrun help with foot problems?

In a review of the shoe, a lady says that, “I have very high arches and plantar fasciitis (PF) in both feet, and the GOrun provides ample support for me. The mid-foot rise gently pushes into my arch and feels like a gentle, rolling massage” Essentially, the shoe will help you if you have problems with your arch. The shoe only reaches 66% of the ground, which gives you a better stride and natural feel when running.

  • Did you forget your socks?

No problem with this shoe! There is no rubbing or irritation with GOrun. Due to the sockliner, it reduces odor and slippage. Inside the shoe, there is more space to move your toes comfortably for a better grip.

  • Provides a great excuse to go for a run

Skechers is not new to having innovating shoes. The “Shape-Ups” guaranteed a more toned body at the expense of an awkward looking design. However the GOrun is somewhat the same design, it is less bulky at the bottom and the more you run, the flatter the shoe gets.

The shoe comes in a variety of colors that you can easily match with your favorite running shorts. Find your favorite pair here.
