Good to know
- An improved DuPont Delrin stability plate adds torsional rigidity to the GOmeb Speed 3. This will provide enough support for slight overpronators during race day or speed training sessions. The shoe’s overall transition and responsiveness are improved with this plate as well.
- Skechers also enhanced the comfort of the new version. It has more padding in the collar while the inner fabric of the shoe is a lot softer. The new fabric will make running enjoyable, even for those who prefer to run without socks.
- To give it a racier shoe feel, Skechers made the cushioning slightly more resilient than the past models. It will provide a better platform when going for powerful toe offs.
- An upper revamp includes wider holes with just a little bit of flexibility. This enhances shoe ventilation and helps provide a more personalized fit.
The fit and sizing are regular with just a hair more room in the toe box for the new version. As always, this type of fit is great for those with regular foot widths. It will provide a comfortable, snug fit from the heel to the forefoot. Skechers offers D and B for the widths while the sizes, which are standard, are from 6 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 13 for the women’s.
The outsole features small treads called GOImpulse Sensors. These treads offer a bit of cushioning for a shoe that is designed to be go-to marathon shoe.
The Skechers’ signature midsole technology in the Resalyte foam occupies this area. It is injection-molded, very light, resilient, and has more than adequate responsive features.
The new midsole insert called the DuPont Delrin Stability Plate, which is also used in the Skechers GOmeb Speed 5, gives stability and support that minimal overpronators may get to enjoy this shoe as well.
Excellent breathability and foot-hugging comfort are provided by a monomesh and a seamless upper. The sock-like comfort gets a boost with the anti-microbial properties of an Ortholite Sockliner. Providing support and structure in this area are the very light Hotmelt overlays.
