When it comes to sports footwear, Skechers is a brand known for comfort. Apart from casual daily wear, they also have a lineup of performance oriented sports shoes. The latest in their performance series is the GOrun 7 – a lightweight running shoe with what Skechers calls the ‘Hyper Burst’ midsole.

Thanks to the knitted upper, the shoe gives you a snug fit and unhindered breathability. We like that the insole can be removed if you Find it a tad too tight. The unique design includes two pull tabs on the shoe which allows for quick and easy wearing/removal. The webbing-style lacing system stays locked during exercise and ensures the shoe doesn’t become loose. And at just about 220 grams per shoe, GOrun 7 is one of the lightest running shoes available today.

Another highlight is the new midsole that provides excellent energy return (it’s a noticeable boost while walking/running) without sacrificing on comfort. We used the shoes on surfaces like grass, treadmills as well as concrete roads and found them to be well balanced with superb grip.

The outsole has good flexibility which helps in easy foot movement and provides great support. Skechers has added rubber pods on the outsole that are designed for extra traction while running, especially on uneven surfaces.

Overall, we think the GOrun 7 is amongst the best running shoes in this price range. At this price, you’re also spoilt for choice with good options from Reebok, Puma and Adidas.
