Skechers GOrun Razor TRL: featherlight speedster for moderate trails

Skechers is probably the last brand to come to mind when you think 'I need trail shoes.' However, the brand gradually builds up its trail shoe collection with promising releases.

The GOrun Razor TRL embodies everything that runners have come to love about the road Razors. Here are the highlights that make it so special:

  • Weight: 8.2 oz (292 g) is ridiculously light for a trail shoe with so much cushioning. For reference, the average weight of trail shoes with 30mm+ stack height is 11.2 oz (317 g)
  • Simple upper: Thin and breathable mono mesh with extra overlays for durability on the trails.
  • Lively Hyperburst: The top-level cushioning from Skechers. Extremely light and responsive.
  • Road-to-trail rubber: The Goodyear outsole with small lugs can go from paved roads to hard-packed trails. Just not so good for technical or muddy areas.
