When I first tried the Skechers Go Run some time last year, there was one thing about it that I wouldn’t forget, and that was it’s weight. The Skechers Go Run is so light that it felt like I was walking on air! After its success, Skechers wanted to make  another shoe that would be even better, hence the birth of the Skechers Go Run 2.


In an intimate launch with fellow bloggers, Skechers’ marketing team and Skechers brand ambassador Martin Lorenzo, I got to learn not just more about the shoe but the history of running shoes. Martin shared how shoes today are already filled with too much unnecessary  details and how the Skechers Go Run 2 is the best because of its minimalist design. While he was sharing this, I though to myself, “of course you’d say that, you’re the brand ambassador.” But after more stories, I was convinced.

As most of us know, the first pair of running shoes looked more like slippers. Over the years, shoe companies tried to improve it more on more based on what users would say. “It needs more air” “It needs more support” “They break too easily” etc. Though improvement is always good, companies have transformed the original shoe so much that it no longer promotes proper running form.


“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 Mr. Martin Lorenzo, a consistent podium finisher in his age category and a passionate athlete who races in local and international triathlons and marathons.


The Skechers Go Run 2 is a minimalist shoe that is so light is would almost feel like your running barefoot. The Skechers Go Run first used the M strike technology which promotes midfoot strike, the closest form to the natural way of running. The same technology is also used for the Skechers Go Run 2, however, due to users’ request to lessen the bumpy feeling inside, Skechers has decreased it by 25%.



The Skechers Go Run also has these Go Impulse sensors at the bottom to provide traction and stability during run. support your stride. For the Go Run 2, these sensors were scattered to provide even more stability. The Go Run 2 also has a better form because of its 4 way stretched mesh, it’s now slimmer and narrower than the first.



Mr. Martin Lorenzo added that “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.”


Personally I have to admit that the Skechers Go Run 2 is really catching my attention though I don’t feel ready yet for a full transition. I’ll be sure to use it as often as I can and see for myself just how bad ass these shoes really are.
