In a blog post last week I asked the question “Will Runners Take SKECHERS Seriously?” Well today I finally saw an up-close picture of their upcoming entry into the serious running shoe market, the SKECHERS GOrun:
Per Competitor.com “The yet-to-be-released GOrun by Skechers uses minimalistic engineering and a 4mm heel-toe drop to create a barefoot running experience. The shoe, endorsed and engineered with the help of Meb Keflezighi, will hit stores later this year”
I’ll have to admit that this is a pretty sweet looking shoe, but I still highly doubt they will have much success among serious runners or even minimalist fans. What do you think?
UPDATE: I also found this page which has more information on the GoRun along with a video presentation from YouTube.
