I know, you're wondering, "Justin, why are you wearing a pair of Skechers?" Frankly, I wondered why anyone who only cared about looking nice would ever wear a pair of Skechers, and seriously, in the outdoors?
But I thought, what the heck, I'll give these things a go. Skechers is definitely not known for being an outdoor or running shoe. And you know what? I fell in love with the Skechers GOrun Ride.
From the Manitou Incline to neighbor jogs to trail runs, I've put the GOrun Ride through the paces and this shoe has become my favorite. Though it looks super cushioned, there's not much to the shoe. The foam is soft enough that you can feel what you're running on and padded enough that you won't get hurt. These will be with me for light and fast ascents in the mountains of Colorado as the 4mm drop is kind on my knees.
