As a runner, I know how important it is to find a shoe that’s comfortable and that I look forward to putting on each time I want to get out and hit the pavement. Now, there’s a new choice for the active adult from Skechers. Always the innovator in shoe design and footwear technology (case in point: Shape Ups!), Skechers has unveiled a dramatic new minimalist running shoe that could be your key to going that extra mile, shaving time off your 10k races or just feeling more energized when you lace up to go for a jog.
The all-new GOrun Ride is as close as you can get to running barefoot, while still wearing a protective sneaker on your foot. The major difference between the Skechers GOrun Ride and it’s competitors, is the mid-foot support offered, dubbed M-Strike Technology. This added cushion is engineered to promote mid-foot strike, which can help transform impact into reusable energy.
The GOrun Ride was worn by California ultra runner and world-record holder Christian Burke when he finished 2nd in the Born to Run 100K earlier this year. Here’s what he has to say about Skechers GOrun Ride:
“This thing takes a completely new approach and this is the only shoe that I know of that gives me a surface on my midfoot to run on. This shoe is so soft and it conforms to my foot so well and any turn, any change in direction, any thing, any type of terrain it really molds to my foot just the way I want it. That's about as close as you're going to get to barefoot running.”

Skechers can be found on the lower level in Zone B, between Macy’s and Macy’s Home Store. One thing I love about Skecher’s designs is they come in a huge array of colors to choose from, so everyone can find a style they like. My personal preference- the Raven’s purple of course!
If you’ve worn the new GOrun Ride already, I would love to know what you think.
