Skechers GoRun Speed

The draw: Responsive mid-foot striker

Designed specifically for 2004 Olympic marathon silver medalist Meb keflezighi as a marathon-racing shoe, the snug-fitting Gorun Speed provides a responsive ride engineered for quick turn-over. The love- it-or-hate-it feel of the mid-foot rocker (that encourages a mid-foot strike) found in the Skechers Gorun is less prominent in this shoe, and the midsole is much more firm, so take heed if you prefer more cushioning and flexibility in your marathon shoes.
