Default Skechers GOrun 2. Hailed the shoe of the future.



Meet the Skechers GOrun 2. The slight contoured shape and negative heel promotes a midfoot strike. Competitive runners across the country are hailing this the shoe of the future. Just released in late December of 2012, the GOrun 2 already has a cult like following.

I'm hoping to try these out soon, just have to fix my not having any money situation. I was hesitant to buy a pair of Skechers, but these are not the Skechers we are used to seeing. Plus I love the colors.

If anyone out there is still looking for that perfect running shoe, the GOrun 2 may very well be what you're looking for.

When I was a kid you would get laughed at for wearing Skechers.

Why? I have always worn Skechers as my dress shoes for going out. Comfortable and stylish.

Might be worth a shot for $80, but shoes aren't really one style fits all so I'd have to try them out somewhere first.

I'm the biggest skeptic in the world when it comes to fitness fads, but I truly believe in barefoot running/midfoot striking. I can already midfoot strike in my Nike Free Runs, but these look interesting.

I tried on a pair today and they are very similar to Nike Free's. I've had 4-5 pairs of Free's and I've always loved them.

Wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of Sketchers. Would rather go barefoot.

Not trying to burst your bubble, but this individual shoe has gotten no accolades from the world of competitive running. Skechers has made a big push in the last few years to stay relevant in the world of professional running (like sponsoring a few Olympians).

I read a few personal reviews of the shoe from long time runners that had nothing but positive things to say. This shoe just came out a few months ago.
