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.
