Comments about Mens Skechers GOrun Ride Running Shoe:

Finally - a shoe that is advertised especially for us mid foot runners! Lets face it, these days there are very few shoes that specialize in this style of running, and us poor mid foot strikers have to make due with what is not optimal. Now for the caveat - If you are a dedicated heel striker and cannot ever run mid foot, dont bother with these running shoes. It will be shall we say, a painful experience. There is little padding in the heel, and you will be bruised and defeated in no time short.

However, about 1/4 runners in general, and most fast runners in marathons, and especially trail runners are mid foot strikers or front foot. this is about 30% more efficient as far as endurance goes. I love running in these shoes, they fit very well, have plenty of room in the front for your toes but not to the point of being sloppy at all. Too many shoes these day are pointy on the front - whos feet are shaped like that? The experience when runing in these is one of extreme stability, ultra manueverablity without ankle twisting, and of great traction on many surfaces. For a comparison, my Nike Zoom Trail shoes are fast yes, and sure are bouncy! But holy cow, you have to constantly watch your self so you dont twist your ankles they are very tall for a trail shoe. Not the Go run rides. Surprised you can run a trail in these? I had heard they were excellent off road and was shocked to find they are superb! Low profile and extreme traction on a variety of off road surface. I tested them by running on 1 inch rocks and didnt even feel them.

Now for road running, there are a few things you may want to know here. First, they are pretty dang minimal as far as Im concerned! They pound your quads pretty good, and are almost like a track shoe in that regard. When I ran a slow 9 or 10 minute pace, they were great. But faster than 8 min/mi pace they rattled my brain to the point of giving me a head ache. So the lesson from this is they are a great mid foot running shoe, but I personally cannot race in them, since I am a sub 8 racer.

finally, about that heel offset. Most running shoes are around 10 - 14mm drop from heel to toe. this shoe is 4mm. You will need to alternate them for a while with your regular shoes to get used to the extra stretching your achillies gets here. took me 3 months to slowly work into this type of offset.

How bout bounce, or energy return? Well my Nike Zoom Elites are the only other midfoot striker shoes I own. By comparison they bounce like a spring when you strike the mid foot and it rockets you into the next step. Very fast shoe. these are quite different! Its more like a foam rubber "thump" and no bounce. You have to rely on your own legs to launch you into the next stride. While this is pretty normal for most running shoes, I am a bit spoiled by the Nikes Zoom Tech.

Well thats it for now, I plan on running a race with these this year and will post an update soon. C Schur

    I am really enjoying running in my new GOrun Ride shoes by Skechers because they are so lightweight. With no extra material and no extra weight, there is nothing to hold you back from running your fastest. I could feel the difference as soon as I put them on, they felt natural and flexible allowing a super responsive ride.
