Optimal traction and easy transitions

The outsole unit of the Skechers GOrun 400 features the rubber GOimpulse Sensors. These circular shapes on the face of the external sole unit are responsible for the traction and flexible support the runner gets during the running sessions. They also allow easier transitions through the gait cycle. Even distribution of pressure is achieved when the foot is on the ground, so optimum ground feel should be given to the wearer.

Full-length cushioning in the GOrun 400

5GEN is a mid-sole material that is very responsive. This high-quality full-length layer cushions the foot entirely, and it even returns energy to the runner for more efficient succeeding steps. It’s plush, springy and it doesn’t have a substantial weight.

The Goga Run is an insole that’s placed right above the main cushioning unit. It supports the foot responsibly, but it also absorbs the impact forces gotten from striking the foot on the ground.

Open construction upper with maximum durability

The sandwich mesh is a comfortable material that’s used as the primary cover system of the Skechers GOrun 400. It’s durable, breathable and it has some padding to add a bit of cushioning to the dimensions of the foot. A well-ventilated running experience awaits the wearer as it has an open construction.

Stitched-on overlays made from synthetic materials provide more integrity to the structure of the upper unit. It also causes the fabrics to hug the foot snugly and securely.

The Quick-Fit Portal located at the heel makes wearing or removing the Skechers GOrun 400 much easier. It’s like a finger-loop, but it’s integrated directly in the upper unit.
