Notable Features

This road running shoe, the Skechers GOrun Speed Elite, is designed for runners who are challenged to perform better during race days. With the utilization of the Ripstop mesh upper, added breathability and support are encouraged. This is significant in promoting a healthy foot environment.

It features the Hyperbust midsole. This responsive and ultra-lightweight foam is meant to provide a more efficient ride.

Integrated into the midsole is the carbon fiber infused plate. This material is focused on delivering added propulsion during the running activity.

Size and fit

For both men and women versions, the Skechers GOrun Speed Elite utilizes the standard sizing shoe measurements. Users can go ahead and use their usual sizing preferences. Though others observed that the toe box is a bit tight, buyers should take note of this issue before finally purchasing the shoe. It is then recommended to try the shoe first to ensure an enjoyable wearing experience. 
The mesh upper is one of the technical factors that directly affect the fit of the shoe. With this material used in crafting the footwear, a comfortable and supportive fit is offered.


Utilized in crafting the Skechers GOrun Speed Elite is the rubber outsole. This component of the running footwear provides a great amount of traction in different paved surfaces. The material is strategically placed to deliver added durability to the platform as well.


In comparison to the Adidas Pure Boost, which utilizes the Boost technology, the HYPER BURST is used in making the GOrun Speed Elite. This material is described as an ultra-light cushioning which aims to provide a more responsive ride. Accompanied by the responsive ride is plenty of protection for the foot as well.

Adding propulsion is the sole responsibility of the Carbon Fiber Infused Plate. As a result, the reduction of inefficient movement is encouraged. 

Along with the Carbon Fiber Infused Plate is the M-Strike. This is essential in promoting more efficient running mechanics. This is possible by encouraging a better midfoot strike during the running activity. A full-length carbon plate is employed to the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% as well.


When compared to the Saucony Ride ISO 2, which uses the double jacquard mesh, the Ripstop mesh upper is integrated into this shoe. This translucent and durable material is essential in providing exceptional support to the foot during the running session. It also offers breathability. This is essential in keeping the foot cool and fresh in every activity.
