Skeckers recently launched GOrun2, the sequel of the successful GOrun performance shoe. It has gone the extra mile by helping runners transition to more efficient mid-foot strike running rather than heel striking through its GOrun series. If you’re a runner looking to enhance your efficiency, speed and overall performance, consider your running technique and re-think your shoe choice. Skechers GOrun2 helps runners run faster with a mid-foot strike, allowing them to achieve their personal best time.

Inspired by barefoot running, Skechers GOrun running shoes features the M-Strike Technology. Skechers GOrun 2 lived by the principles of minimalism encourages runners to run more naturally by positioning the body for an efficient mid-foot strike in order to run faster, stronger, and longer. Skechers GOrun 2 is considered to be the next generation of serious minimal running shoes, its GOimpulse sensors which are found underneath the soles makes the wearer more responsive in running in any surface type.

Skechers GOrun 2 is made of breathable four-way stretch mesh toe panels and custom fit insole for comfort. The added Resalyte midsole absorbs the impact to prevent injuries. It has a minimal heel lift at 4mm to keep the foot in a nearly neutral position. The best part is its weight. GOrun2 is as lightweight as can be, allowing the wearer to run faster and more efficiently.

America's fastest marathon runner Meb Keflezighi, Skechers GOrun ambassador attributes his success to his trusty performance shoes of choice. “Skechers’ new performance shoes change the way I run for the better, I ’ve been a heel runner my entire life, but I am now wearing Skechers to maximize the efficiency of my foot strike. My shoes are my most essential piece of equipment and right now, 
Skechers has the footwear I need to succeed,” added Keflezighi.

Martin Lorenzo, a Filipino top age grouper tri-athlete believes that it is crucial to look for the right lightweight shoe that promotes a mid-foot strike to avoid or lessen injuries and improve on speed and efficiency. “I bought myself different pairs of shoes and tested each one. What came on top is the Skechers GOrun 2. It is well-designed, lightweight, very comfortable, and well-ventilated for our tropical climate. It exceeded my expectations on every count,” shared Lorenzo, a consistent podium finisher in his age category and a passionate athlete who races in local and international triathlons and marathons.
"Skechers GOrun2 makes a great transitional shoe for runners who are still heel striking. Adopting the mid-foot strike is important for runners who want to improve on their running technique and speed. With Skechers GOrun2, no matter how you force yourself to run heel strike, it forces you to land mid-foot for easier transition.” he added.
