Updates to Skechers GOrun Vortex
- A well-cushioned ride is a huge part of what the Skechers GOrun Vortex has to offer. Its appealing design and visible technology mid-sole actually make a solid visual statement about the high quality cushioning that it delivers to the runner. From the fabrics to the outsole, this running shoe puts quality to how the runner performs.
- A mesh material wraps around the foot in a secure, but comfortable manner. It’s breathable, so it allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe in order to keep the foot dry and cool. An overlay system adds more structured support, while the Ortholite Sock Liner protects the foot from moisture and odor-causing bacteria.
- The mid-sole unit of the Skechers GOrun Vortex uses durable foam technologies to make sure that the underfoot experience is as comfortable as it is full-bodied. The full-length foam doesn’t wear off or lose structural integrity easily, so it makes sure to deliver consistent protection, even after a long time.
- Durable carbon rubber shields the rest of the sole unit from wear and tear. Traction and additional cushioning are handled by the Resagrip® outsole. Sensor pods offer a more responsive running experience to the wearer. It’s also responsive for delivering flexibility to the platform.
Skechers GOrun Vortex size and fit
The Skechers GOrun Vortex is true to its size. It is available in sizes that adhere to the standard measurements to which men and women are acclimated. The width of this shoe is medium, so it accommodates those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape follows the shape of the human foot, letting the runner acclimate well to it when wearing it.
The Skechers GOrun Vortex features a carbon rubber material that’s placed in strategic areas where wear and tear most likely occur. It’s responsible for protecting the shoe from damage.
The GOimpulse Sensors™ are pods in the outsole that give more responsiveness to each step. They also allow the sole unit to become more flexible and more attuned to the motions of the foot.
The Resagrip® is a technology that allows the external sole to hold onto the ground well. Aside from traction, it also gives additional cushioning, which is helpful when it comes to striking the foot on the ground and toeing off. It serves both as a mid-sole and outsole unit.
The Goga Mat® is a mid-sole design that’s responsible for propelling the runner upward in an enabled and efficient manner. It also handles impact pretty well, making the underfoot experience very comfortable.
The Resagrip® delivers more structure to the sole unit. This ground-contact foam supports the foot well and even molds itself to the shape of the underfoot, ensuring a customized underfoot feel. It acts as both the mid-sole and outsole.
The M-Strike® allows more mid-foot striking. With this unit, landing the foot on the ground feels more balanced and the transitions toward the forefoot lift become faster.
A two-toned mesh fabric has been woven durably to make sure that the upper coverage is as secure and intact as it can be. It is soft on the skin, so irritation won’t become any problem.
Synthetic overlays are stitched onto the upper fabrics. They provide structure to the shoe while also helping the mesh when it comes to hugging the foot snugly.
Reflective detailing makes sure that the runner is visible when running under low lighting conditions. It’s a safety measure that’s ultimately helpful when running at night.
The Ortholite® Sock Liner has an anti-microbial capability. It also manages moisture, thus keeping the interior environment clean and healthy for the foot.
