- The Skechers GOrun 600 Refine is a running shoe that’s made with the neophyte runners in mind. It offers the fundamentals of a modern-day performance shoe without having a design that is merely an afterthought. Also, it is a cheap running shoe that anyone can pick up and enjoy.
- Sandwich mesh serves as the external part of this product’s facade. It offers a secure yet well-ventilated coverage. A soft inner lining and seamless construction with minimal overlays free the foot from irritants such as unnecessary layers or seams.
- A full-length foam that is made of a proprietary technology serves as the midsole unit of the Skechers GOrun 600 Refine. A cushioned insole bolsters the perception of softness and responsiveness. Ground-contact foam with rubber layers on the high-wear points shaves off weight from the shoe while still delivering traction.
The Skechers GOrun 600 Refine is designed to be true to size. Runners can choose a pair using their usual sizing expectations. However, testing the shoe for one’s self or finding user reviews from various sources can positively affect the quality of the in-shoe experience.
The semi-curved shape of this running shoe’s lasting board, the flexible fabrics of the upper unit, and the light padding inside the silhouette contribute to the quality of the fit.
The Skechers GOrun 600 Refine features ground-contact foam as the outsole. This full-length piece has arrowhead-like patterns which provide traction over the ground. The grooves are meant to make the platform more adherent to the natural bending capacity of the foot.
The heel and forefoot areas of the external pad feature rubber nodes. The purpose of these layers is to protect the high-wear areas of the ground-contact midsole from wear-and-tear, especially since abrasion causes the underfoot platform to sag or be uneven.
Cushioning is the responsibility of the 5GEN®, a foam piece that runs the entire length of the Skechers GOrun 600 Refine. This technology is designed to cushion the footfalls, preventing the impact shock from causing discomfort. It transfers energy to the foot and leg of the runner, thus improving the overall performance.
Goga Run® is an insole that serves as the surface onto which the foot eases. Though it is a removable layer, it still has a moderate thickness which helps to enhance the robustness of the overall cushioning capacity of the midsole. It can be removed or replaced with a custom insert if the wearer wants to do so.
The upper unit of the Skechers GOrun 600 Refine is made of a multilayered mesh. This cover system offers breathability and security. The multiple layers aim to avert tears. Many other shoe series employ mesh uppers, including the Nike Revolution line and the Asics Patriot roster.
A set of thin prints grace the sides of the silhouette. These add-ons help the lacing system when it comes to securing the foot and keeping it in place. The minimal use of these synthetic layers shaves off weight from the whole product while enforcing a seamless and uncluttered look.
