Skechers GOrun 4™ – 2016 is Awarded Editor’s Choice
Skechers Performance announces that Skechers GOrun 4 – 2016™ was awarded the prestigious “Editors Choice” accolade from Runner’s World magazine, a publication of Rodale, Inc. The Editor’s Choice Award will appear in the highly anticipated summer Shoe Guide in the June 2016 issue of Runner’s World, U.S. magazine.
Editor’s Choice represents an outstanding shoe that successfully combines the highest-quality design and technology. Winners received high marks from the Runner’s World Shoe Lab, the “wear-testers” and the editors. In the issue, Runner’s World noted that the testers “…heaped praise on the new upper, saying it had an ‘amazing fit’ and calling it ‘extremely comfortable’.” The Skechers GOrun 4 – 2016 was evaluated amongst multiple shoe brands and 25 models for the Shoe Guide, and will appear in print and online as part of the Runner’s World shoe finder.
Introduced by Skechers Performance earlier this year, Skechers GOrun 4 – 2016 features a GO KNIT sock-like upper, resulting in reduced weight and increased support. This neutral, lightweight shoe, also features a Resalyte® cushioned midsole, and Skechers Performance’s signature m-strike which promotes mid-foot striking. This technology helps runners go faster by minimizing ground contact time as the middle of the foot impacts the ground and transitions to forefoot for immediate toe off.
“We are extremely proud that the GOrun 4 – 2016 has been recognized in such an important way by Runner’s World,” said Rick Higgins, SVP Merchandising/Marketing for Skechers Performance. “Our focus over the years has been to provide runners with performance footwear that is built by runners. Our philosophy is to keep innovating and developing shoes with the latest unique technologies in the market. Receiving this award really highlights how committed we are to bringing the best shoes to runners.”
“This shoe has been the culmination of our team’s efforts of listening and reacting to what runners want,” said Kurt Stockbridge, VP, Technical Development, Skechers Performance. “We really pushed ourselves to deliver on those principles.”
