am i ever glad that i did.
this second generation design from skechers intended to promote a more mid-foot (read biomechanically efficient) stride pattern has garnered just about universally positive reviews. and even though all of the other shoes that are part of my running rotation now are zero-drop (no differential in sole height from heel to toe), i had wanted to test out this 4mm drop shoe for marathon race-day because it could potentially help with the late-stage muscle fatigue that accompanies constant running on the balls of my feet.
i've now logged three runs in the gorun 2 - two easy runs of 10k and one tempo 10k run (which produced a PB for that distance). these shoes make me completely unaware of the work that i'm putting my feet through - which is fantastic. check out the video review below:
they will definitely be my kicks of choice on sept. 15 at the erie marathon, where i (once again) hope to finally attain a boston qualifying time.
given my experience with the skechers performance division so far, i've got to say that these guys know first hand what its like to rewrite (their) history.
remember this lawsuit-worthy footwear?
