Skechers GOrun 7 Hyper Review

The GOrun 6 was an odd shoe for me.  The midsole/outsole was similar to the very successful GOrun 5 that gave a lightweight responsive feel for both training and uptempo days.  The addition of such a flexible mesh in version 6 made for a great casual shoe, but an unsupportive upper lockdown.  Along comes version 7, my first experience with the new Hyper Burst midsole material.  Which absolutely blew me away.  Boost and ZoomX have both been good midsole material upgrades, but they either had weight or durability issues.  The Hyper Burst midsole combined with a slightly secure but flexible upper has brought this shoe back to life for me.  Let's talk more. 

Specifications (per Skechers Performance)
Weight: 7.7 oz (men's size 9)
Stack Height: Not available
Drop: 4mm
Classification: Lightweight Trainer


I typically wear a size 10 in most shoes and that is exactly how it fits.  The knit mesh is far more secure than the previous version and fits almost like a compression sock…
