Updates to Skechers GOtrain - Endurance

  • Though one might argue that what Skechers offers falls purely into the ‘streetwear’ category, it has released models, such as the GOtrain - Endurance, which caters to people with active lifestyles.
  • The GOtrain - Endurance features a mesh upper that keeps the inside cool. The 3D-printed synthetic overlays give the fabric structure and protection from abrasion.
  • The outsole is an extension of the midsole. It uses a durable compound that has been molded to feature a tread pattern that delivers traction.
  • The shoe also makes use of the 5GEN in the heel and forefoot sections for better shock absorption.

Skechers GOtrain - Endurance size and fit

The Skechers GOtrain - Endurance is only available in men’s sizes. It is true-to-size, and its width is D - Medium.  The use of synthetic overlays in the upper prevents the mesh from stretching out. If a wider pair of training shoes is desired, check out the Skechers Elite Flex - Hartnell.

Outsole

The rubber outsole used in the GOtrain - Endurance serves as a part of the midsole. The compound is durable and flexible. The molded tread pattern delivers traction on most types of surfaces. The rubber extends to the front and protects the toes from abrasion and impact.

Midsole

The 5GEN cushioning makes up the midsole of the GOtrain - Endure. It is a type of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) that is more durable and has shock absorbing properties. This technology is different from typical EVA because it is firmer and more responsive to movements. The textured appearance of the midsole is not only there for aesthetics, but it also enhances traction and abrasion resistance.

Upper

The Skechers GOtrain - Endurance features a lightweight mesh fabric that allows heat to dissipate and keep the foot fresh. Reinforcing the upper are multi-layered 3D-printed synthetic overlays that protect from abrasion and provide stability during workouts.

An external heel counter anchors the back of the foot to the midsole. This structure ensures that the foot will not slip out of the footwear while in motion.

A traditional lace-up closure prevents accidental removal of the shoe. The padded tongue serves as a protection between the instep and the flat laces, ensuring that the top of the foot is comfortable even when laces are tightly tied.

The plush collar supports the ankle, preventing it from becoming irritated. It also ensures that the foot is securely locked in place.

Lining the inside is a smooth fabric. It delivers an excellent in-shoe feel while facilitating easy on-and-off.

It also features a cushioned insole that provides a comfortable underfoot experience, even when used for extended periods.
