Skechers GObionic Trail, $80

Category: Versatile Cruiser

Weight: 8.0 oz (men’s); 6.8 oz (women’s)

Height off the ground: 19mm (heel); 15mm (forefoot)

FIT: With a roomy fit from heel to toe, wider-footed runners can stride in comfort.

FEEL: The GObionic Trail has a light and airy, unhindered design, with plenty of underfoot cushion, for a maximum minimalist feel. Infinitely flexible like Skechers road running shoes, this shoe feels like a road racing flat that’s been beefed up with a luggy outsole. The 4mm drop can be converted to a zero-drop platform by removing the built-up insole.

RIDE: These ate up the miles on roads, cinder and gravel trails and gentle rollers with an energetic, easy-striding ride. Rock hitchhikers couldn’t hold onto the super-bendable sole and a reinforced toe box provided protection from the occasional scrape and scuff.
