88 / 100 based on 12 expert reviews

  • 87 / 100 | Road Trail Run | | Level 5 expert

    If you want a faster, kind of more responsive, more race-ready ride, you may want to go with the Razor.

  • 80 / 100 | Triathlon Taren | Level 1 expert

    This, I find this good for mid-distance running. I would probably put this to 10K to half marathon running or just general training.

  • 90 / 100 | Running Shoes Guru | | Level 5 expert

    The Skechers GOmeb Razor sits on a razor thin line between a racing shoe and a daily trainer. It features a snug fitting GOknit upper with new responsive 5GEN cushioning for a stable and quick ride.

  • 89 / 100 | Running Competitor | | Level 5 expert

    This is the shoe for you if you're looking for a lightweight training shoe that's versatile enough to run shorter, faster workouts and longer training runs.

  • 88 / 100 | Solereview | Level 5 expert

    It's light, snug fitting, and grippy -- all hallmarks of a product which performs well during races.

  • 87 / 100 | Road Trail Run | | Level 5 expert

    The result is that the Razor can be characterized as a hybrid of the Gomeb Speed and Go Run 5. It should be a more cushioned yet still highly responsive racer than the Gomeb Speed series along with being a firmer, more supportive up tempo option than the Gorun 5.

The nearly seamless upper delivers a secure, sock-like fit. Runners with medium measurements in the heel and midfoot will absolutely enjoy the comfortable fit of the shoe. It has a roomy toe box and roomy forefoot, accommodating a wide range of foot measurements. The GOmeb Razor is available in standard D and B widths for men’s and women’s versions.


The GOmeb Razor utilizes a durable and lightweight outsole material that is engineered to deliver a reliable multi-surface traction. The geometry lugs gives added traction and flexibility for an enhanced running experience.


The Skechers GOmeb Razor uses the 5GEN® cushioning that is formulated to provide a lightweight underfoot protection. This cushioning provides a soft yet responsive ride.

For an enhanced efficiency in each stride, Skechers makes use of the M-Strike technology. The mid-foot strike zone promotes proficient running mechanics by encouraging mid-foot strike.


The upper of the Skechers GOmeb Razor features the one-piece GoKnit material that provides maximum breathability and comfort. The seamless construction provides a smooth environment, keeping the foot free from blisters and irritation. The multi-density thread in the knit upper gives structural integrity in key areas.

The shoe also has a molded heel counter that is designed for a more secure fit and stable ride.

The laces of the GOmeb Razor are thin and flat. The air mesh tongue is minimally padded and it gives added comfort and extra breathability.
