Skechers GOrun MaxRoad 4 Hyper: All “Hype-d” up
The Hyper Burst foam from Skechers is not a new technology, especially to fans of Skechers running shoes. However, the brand takes pride in the GOrun MaxRoad 4 Hyper as their first shoe with the most amount of Hyper Burst cushioning.
The GOrun MaxRoad 4 Hyper evolution
The GOrun MaxRoad shoe is an existing Skechers running shoe series. However, it doesn’t sound familiar. Starting off as simply the “GOrun Ultra,” this Skechers model has come a long way in its road running endeavor. Its most notable updates (aside from name change) include:
- Hyper Burst midsole: The first three versions of the series used the Ultra Flight midsole from Skechers. In MaxRoad 4, the Hyper Burst midsole makes an introduction. This tech is made from EVA injected with carbon dioxide to make it more lightweight and resilient.
- The outsole layout is done in pods instead of the previous grooves. This design makes for a more durable coverage without sacrificing flexibility.
- The knit upper of the MaxRoad 4 Hyper has been upgraded with a multi-zone stretch capability, to ensure the upper comfortably covers the foot while also retaining structure and durability.

The Skechers GOrun Ride 8 Hyper is also a road shoe designed for neutral pronators. When compared to the MaxRoad 4, the GOrun Ride 8 boasts of an outsole made with Goodyear rubber. This is suitable for runners who want more when it comes to durability and traction.
While the MaxRoad 4 Hyper is more suited for everyday use, the Skechers GOrun Razor 3 Hyper is made for speed. The resilient quality of the Hyper Burst foam allows runners to achieve mileage for less.
Those who are looking for a trail companion would also find a shoe that is powered by Hyper Burst. In the GOrun Speed TRL Hyper, the Hyper Burst foam proves that it is sturdy enough to withstand tough running conditions. The midsole retains its form even after many runs.
