For someone who has a narrow foot and someone who is looking for kinda that forefoot running style, this would be the shoe for you.
I haven’t ever given a 10 before. This is a fantastic, fantastic, fantastic shoe.
An outstanding shoe and one of the best, if not the best I’ve put on my foot in 2018! I would recommend this shoe for road work including tempos, Fartlek, Progressions, but where it becomes different than most in this lightweight category is it can be used to recovery days and long easy runs as well.
It is one of the liveliest and most comfortable shoes so far this year. I only wish there were a slightly happier medium here between a touch firmer midsole, a lower profile sock liner, and/or more and firmer outsole rubber.

Skechers GOrun Ride 7 size and fit
The Skechers GOrun Ride 7 is true to size. It is available in medium widths D for the men and B for the women. It follows the standard running shoe length. Because of the shoe’s rockered-shape, it contours to the natural shape of the foot.
Integrated into the Skechers GOrun Ride 7 is the high-traction outsole. This component of the shoe provides added durability on a wide variety of weather conditions. It also provides enough grip, especially on wet surfaces.
The midsole utilizes the FLIGHT GEN cushioning. This lightweight material offers maximum impact protection. It also aims to provide added responsiveness. Some Skechers shoes including the Skechers GOrun 6 are also using this material.
The shoe uses the Mid-foot Strike Zone technology in the midsole section. Its platform is strategically designed to let the runner strike more efficiently using the mid-foot. As a result, a quicker stride is accommodated.
The upper section of the Skechers GOrun Ride 7 uses the two-toned knit. This breathable material has a nearly seamless design. It results in a rubbing and irritation-free running experience without sacrificing the shoe's lightweight structure.
Added comfort is offered by the Gussetted tongue. This component is also significant in promoting a more stable and secure fit.
For easy on and off, the Pull tab feature is integrated into the Skechers GOrun Ride 7. With this feature, the foot is allowed to enter the shoe quickly.
Increased visibility is encouraged by the Reflective details. This feature of the shoe is essential in making the runner visible, especially in low-light conditions. It adds to the safety of the wearer as well.
