  • The Skechers GOtrain - Viper is a cross-training shoe with a low-profile ULTRA GO midsole that provides wearers with a stable platform during training. A layer of grippy and flexible rubber protects the underside of the shoe.
  • As for the upper, its cleatie-style silhouette makes it easy to put on and remove, but if a secure lockdown is needed, the lacing system can be utilized. A breathable flat-knot mesh makes up the top of the trainer.

The Skechers GOtrain - Viper is a pair of workout shoes made for men and women. The gentlemen’s version is available in US sizes 7 to 14, and in D - Medium width. As for the ladies’ model, it is available in US sizes 5 to 11, and in B - Medium profile.

A layer of rubber wraps the midsole of the Skechers GOtrain - Viper. This compound is engineered to provide traction while the grooves at the forefoot promote natural foot flexion.

The Skechers GOtrain - Viper employs the ULTRA GO midsole. This lightweight platform is crafted to be responsive to attenuate shock better.

Inside the footgear is the Air Cooled Goga Mat insole. This component helps keep the foot chamber fresh aside from enhancing underfoot comfort.

Another trainer to consider for daily workouts is the Under Armour Project Rock 1. This model employs the responsive Micro G cushioning unit with durable rubber protecting the underside.

The Skechers GOtrain - Viper features a cleatie construction. Though it is a slip-on trainer, there are laces on the midfoot which help wearers tighten the fit if needed.

The upper is crafted from flat-knit mesh and textile which help aerate the interior. Hot-melt overlays are found on the toe box and the lateral panel which protect the underlying material. At the back, an external heel clip has been added to steady the hindfoot.
