Skechers GOrun 2, $80
6.4 oz. (men’s); 5.1 oz. (women’s)
4mm heel-toe offset
FIT: Although snug in the heel and midfoot if tied down securely, the GOrun 2 is rather roomy in the forefoot.
FEEL: Like the initial version of this shoe, the GOrun 2 feels low to the ground and very light. The upper is supple and infinitely flexible, allowing feet to move without restriction, but a few testers thought the heel collar sat too low.
RIDE: Soft and plush. The rockered profile of the original model has been greatly reduced, creating a smoother feeling through the gait cycle. The combination of the well cushioned midsole and only sparse amounts of outsole rubber, make for a cushy, flexible and completely uninhibited ride.
