Skechers GoRun Strada Running Shoe Review


I’ve probably put more miles on the Skechers GoRun Strada over the past year+ than any other shoe model. The reason is that I’ve been involved in wear testing the shoe since its earliest prototype iterations. The shoe has come a long way in that time, from a first run where I was ready to […]

Skechers GoMeb Strada Preview


Last week I reviewed Meb Keflezighi’s racing shoe, the Skechers GoMeb Speed 3. In this post I’m going to introduce you to his training shoe, the Skechers GoMeb Strada (I believe Kara Goucher is also training in this shoe now). I’ve been involved with the development of the Strada since late 2013, so the shoe […]

Skechers GoMeb Speed 3 Review


Among the Skechers Performance lineup of shoes, my favorites have been the GoRun and GoBionic models (unfortunately the latter is being discontinued). I ran in the GoRun Speed 1 and 2, but the shoe was not a great match for me. A little too narrow, a little to firm under the heel for long distances, […]

Skechers GoRun 4 Review: A Great Update

Skechers GoRun 4

I first ran in a prototype of the Skechers GoRun 4 on a cold, slushy day earlier this year. I’d heard hints that the shoe was substantially changed from previous versions, but didn’t know much beyond that (I had heard that it was more Kinvara-like than previous versions, no complaints here with that comparison!). Upon […]

New Shoe Previews: Brooks Launch 2, Saucony Zealot, Skechers GoMeb Speed 3


Last week my buddy and fellow New Hampshire runner Sam Winebaum attended the Summer Outdoor Retailer Show in Utah. As he does every year, Sam has put together a series of preview posts of running-related products from OR, and he invited me to share some of the images and product info that he posted. I’m […]

Skechers GoMeb Speed 2 Review: A Solid Distance Racing Flat

Skechers GoMeb Speed Sole

By David Henry Skechers got a big boost when Meb Keflezighi won the Boston marathon earlier this year. For a brand that has been historically known more for casual shoes and kids shoes, having an elite American marathoner win Boston in their footwear was evidence that the Skechers Performance Division is making legitimate running shoes. They’ve since […]

Skechers GoBionic 2 Review and A Run Through the Development Process


I have been working with Skechers as a wear tester/consultant for several years now, with the majority of my time spent in the GoRun and GoBionic shoes. My closet is filled with prototypes of many iterations of these shoes, and right now I have protos of a few other shoes sitting on the floor next […]

Skechers GoRun Ride 3 Guest Review by Tyler Mathews


My first pair of Skechers Performance running shoes was the GoRun 2. I loved those shoes. They gave me a breath of fresh air from the stuffy, typical norms that I found in most running footwear, so I was very excited when the opportunity arose to do some reviews for Skechers. I received the GoRun […]

Dirty Runner: Skechers GoRun Ultra Review


One of the best things about writing this column has been the opportunity I’ve had to build personal relationships with shoe companies.  The one that I work with the most is Skechers.  By now I should not have to convince anybody that they are a “real” performance running shoe manufacturer, so I won’t…  For me, […]

Skechers GoBionic Trail: Photos and Review Link


Over the past few years I’ve had the opportunity to do pre-release product testing and development work with the performance footwear team at Skechers. It’s been an incredibly fun process, and getting to see suggestions that you make find their way into a shoe released on the market is quite a kick! I’ve been given […]
