Updates to Skechers GOrun Max Cushioning Premier

  • Extremely generous cushioning and bouncy performance are the elements that govern the design and creation of the Skechers GOrun Max Cushioning Premier. This product boasts an uncluttered facade, with engineered mesh and hot-melt overlays serving as the upper unit.
  • Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the ULTRA GO™, a max cushioning unit that is designed to deliver high-tier support that puts a significant space between the ground and the foot. Rubber shields the contact points of the forefoot and heel while flex grooves encourage natural foot movement.

Size and fit

A semi-curved platform shape graces the Skechers GOrun Max Cushioning Premier. This design mimics and accommodates the natural curvature of the human foot. Also, the upper unit’s cloth-like material aims to help with the attainment of a snug yet secure coverage.

When it comes to size, the standard sizing scheme is used for this product. Runners are welcome to get a pair using their typical choices of size. However, to fully take advantage of a precise in-shoe feel, it is recommended to test the shoe first or read/watch reviews from various sources.


The outsole unit of the Skechers GOrun Max Cushioning Premier is majorly made of ground-contact foam. The surface of this material has traction patterns that aim to heighten the gripping capacity of the shoe. The brand even touts the compound that makes up this exposed midsole base as resistant to wear.

Rubber nodes cover the high-wear areas of the heel and forefoot, fundamentally acting as shields against the abrasive nature of the ground. These add-ons are also naturally grippy.


Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the ULTRA GO™ foam, a full-length piece that is designed to deliver generous support throughout the running session. The touted highlight of this accouterment is its thickness, a trait that enthusiasts of max cushioning can fully enjoy.

An Air Cooled Goga Mat® insole is placed right above the primary cushioning unit. This add-on is designed to become a soft surface for the underfoot. It can conform itself to the curves of the arch and forefoot, giving support to areas that don’t usually receive it.


The upper unit of the Skechers GOrun Max Cushioning Premier is made of engineered mesh. This textile offers form-fitting coverage that is seamless and breathable. Small holes permit air through the foot-chamber while stretchy yarns ensure flexible performance. Engineered mesh is an upgrade that well-known running shoe series like the Saucony Omni and the Hoka One One Clifton are utilizing.

Synthetic overlays are hot-melted onto strategic areas of the upper unit. These thin elements bolster the structure of the upright silhouette while also helping the lacing system when it comes to delivering a snug yet adjustable hug.
