The suggested retail on the Skechers GoRun 2 is $80 and we always recommend finding your specialty running store to get the best fit. Problem is we've yet to find a specialty store that is carrying the Skecher brand yet. Except for Road Runner Sports. We've tried them, we like them..plus they're worn by Olympian Meb Keflezighi. If they work for Meb they're worth taking a look at. Also we like that they start with a size 6.5. Hopefully they'll get down to a size 4 in the future for our younger runners.
Amazon price is $70.30 if you open an account they give you another $10 gift card = $60.30 + shipping.
RoadRunner Sports is at $79.95 These guys have some very cool and spacious stores around the country. If none in your town hit their website. The benefit is getting the right fit in their store.
The update to the GoRun brings Skechers a bit closer to the mainstream, while retaining its unique story. The entire shoe has been revised, and we think the revision is successful. The upper retains its stretch mesh, keeping the slipper-like feel and low-slung, racer fit.
No-sew, welded overlays support the saddle as before. The midsole geometry has been altered with slightly lowered lugs under the arch, reducing the awkward midfoot feel of the last round. The ride is resilient and cushions the foot well, but it’s very flexible and may require some adaptation prior to regular wear. The outersole is almost nonexistent: about a dozen carbon rubber dots spread over a road-grade EVA sole. As a racer or a shoe reserved for faster-paced running and speedwork, it’s very good. Super-light and efficient runners might get away with daily wear, but all runners can benefit from a shoe like this for some of their faster runs.
Testers: “Snug, racerlike fit. I get a ‘hit the gas’ feeling when I put this on, so I use them for my fastest runs.”
