Skechers GOrun7 shoes are an option for neutral tread athletes looking for a tread with good flexibility, cushioning and lightness. They are mainly a Good option for medium distance training.

During our workouts we have noticed that your "compression sock" shape in the upper part it allows us an ideal adjustment while flexible foot allowing a good perspiration, so that the highest part of the foot is adjusted, the middle part with a feeling of security and the part of the toe with less pressure .

Another of the points that we highlight is the cushioning of the tread during shooting at medium rates on asphalt, due to the HYPER BURST composition of the midsole, the landing of each step becomes light and light and thanks to the rubber pillars of the sole, the flexibility in each step causes feeling of reactivity and momentum in each stride.

We have also noticed slight instability when we shoot over uneven terrain at a high rate or in tight turns at that rate and a slight sense of lack of reactivity for explosive short series.

Conclusion and recommendations

Based on our experiences, we recommend the Skechers GOrun7 model as a suitable option for your shooting training and medium series performed on flat surfaces (asphalt or running track) and races around 10Km or half marathon.

Therefore, if you are a runner or triathlete of neutral tread, you can opt for this innovative model of Skechers for the training of medium and shooting rhythms and enjoy the flexibility and lightness of each step.
