It is an interesting mix of a shoe. Where it fits into the Skechers Performance line in my opinion is for those who would like a combination of the GOrun 4 and the GOrun Ride 5.
The Skechers GOrun Ride 6 is a lightweight trainer that will fit anyone's budget. However, this offering falls short when compared to other Skechers offerings this season.
Updates to Skechers GOrun Ride 6
- The GOrun Ride 6 makes use of the GOimpluse Sensors on its outsole. These strategically placed rubber pods ensure a firm grip on the ground while giving bounciness to each step.
- Although the GOrun Ride 6 uses the same midsole mechanics as in the GOrun Ride 5, it does not use midsole paint on the sides.
Skechers GOrun Ride 6 size and fit
The Ride 6 is true to size. It is available in medium widths D and B for men and women, respectively. It also has a standard running shoe length. Moreover, its semi-curved shape contours well with the natural shape of the runner’s feet.
The outsole of the Ride 6 has GOimpulse Sensors. These are circular pods that are located on the front and rear sections of the outsole. They provide a firm grip on the ground and allow a dynamic push in every step.
The Ride 6’s midsole utilizes 5GEN cushioning. It is an EVA foam variant, which is soft, lightweight and responsive. This technology adds comfort and enhances the efficiency of every stride. The feature also reduces impact shock on the runner’s foot, thereby giving protection.
The shoe also has the M-Strike technology in the midsole. It’s a platform design that encourages the wearer to strike more using the mid-foot, thereby accommodating a quicker step.
The upper of the shoe utilizes the GOknit fabric. The fabric is breathable in nature, with cooling panels and perforations on the front and sides. Moreover, the adaptable material gives a sock-like fit.
The shoe has a Quick Fit Portal at the back of the heel. It is a finger loop that allows the foot to enter the shoe easily.
The integrated inner support strap strengthens the upper and gives the runner a snug fit.
The External Hotmelt support straps provide more structure to the upper section of the shoe. They also act as overlays that assist in securing the foot.
The molded counter keeps the heel secure. This technology holds the back of the foot and prevents it from wobbling or exiting the shoe accidentally.
