Updates to GOmeb Strada 2

The GOmeb Strada 2 from Skechers is the next generation of a fresh series that’s meant to take runners on great running sessions, both short and long. Made from high quality components and materials, this shoe is able to keep the runner comfortable and enabled to run for long periods of time. It doesn’t easily brake down or wear off. It stays efficient even after many uses.

The upper unit of this running shoe utilizes mesh and synthetic materials, which are flexible and secure. It covers the foot in a snug and secure way, but it doesn’t make the interior feel too tight. The overlay system has been 3D printed and fused onto the upper fabrics, thus reducing weight and improving flexibility. Reflectivity is given to runners who want to stay visible during their nighttime running sessions.

The mid-sole unit makes use of a compound that is lightweight and responsive. It runs the entire length of the shoe, so it ensures cushioning for the whole foot. An added component in the mid-sole encourages mid-foot striking. It actually assists the foot in performing in a more efficient way. Through mid-foot striking, the foot gains balance and reduces discomfort from impact.

Durable rubber covers the parts of the sole unit where wear and tear are most likely to occur. It makes sure to shield it from damage or abrasion, while also delivering traction for better surface control. In addition to that, the GOimpulse sensors provide a more responsive ride, which is helpful when it comes to getting a more support during each run.

GOmeb Strada 2 size and fit

The Skechers GOmeb Strada 2 has a standard running shoe length. It comes in sizes that adhere to the regular measurements for men and women. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curve of the human foot. The available width of this shoe is medium, thus allowing medium sized feet to acclimate well to it when wearing it.

Outsole

The Resagrip Traction Control is an outsole layer that’s made from high quality materials, which are able to hold onto the asphalt well and deliver surface control to the runner. It’s durable, so it even protects the rest of the sole unit from abrasion and wear.

Circular nodes called the GOimpulse Sensors provide a more responsive running experience. They promote optimum ground feel and add a bit more cushioning throughout the running gait.

Midsole

The Resalyte is a high quality foam unit that’s used across the entire length of the mid-sole. It’s lightweight and responsive, so it won’t feel as if the runner is being dragged down by the platform. It also promotes natural movement because it doesn’t have a stiff nature.

The M-Strike is a technology that actually promotes mid-foot striking when running. It is a unit that’s added in the mid-foot area. It causes the central area of the sole unit to be more prominent, thus enabling the foot to land on the ground using its middle section.

A comfortable insole has been added in the Skechers GOmeb Strada 2. It improves the underfoot cushioning. It can also be removed or replaced.

Upper

The Tri-Ply mesh system secures the foot and hugs it in place. It is soft and smooth on the skin, so it won’t make the coverage irritating. Breathability is also part of its service, as it allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe to circulate around the foot.

3D printed overlays add more appeal to the upper unit of the GOmeb Strada 2. The design is vibrant and endearing. But its purpose is to help the upper when it comes to hugging the foot snugly and securely. They do not have a substantial weight, as well.

A molded heel counter locks the heel in place. This is a helpful unit, which prevents accidental removals or wobbliness of the foot while wearing the shoe.
