Skechers GOrun Ultra run shoes review

Skechers Wave Sayonara 2 tested and rated by our expert reviewer

Skechers has been producing footwear for over 20 years, but it’s only recently that they’ve entered the competitive world of performance runwear.

The GOrun Ultra’s billed as a ‘cushioning marathon design’ and that’s no exaggeration – in use they feel like a Hoka that’s just begun the 5:2 diet.

Resalyte cushioning is purportedly 65% greater than their Ride range and it’s certainly noticeable, unleashing a springy stride.

There’s some pay-off with a slight dilution of feel between foot and ground, but it’s not too bad.

Flexibility’s proficient, ensuring a smooth transition between landing and toe-off, and surprisingly they’re one of the lightest we’ve tested recently (281g).

The podular outsole grips well – on- and off-road – and these will appeal to many, particularly heavier runners.
