Skechers GOrun Razor Excess: cushioned but light speedster
"Excess" seems to be a misleading name for a shoe that has nothing "excessive" about it. It follows the footprint of its successful Razor siblings from Skechers and fulfills the expectations that runners have come to set for this lineup.
What is it for?
- Pace: Best for tempo runs but can also do well on easy days
- Distance: Up to a marathon (and a little beyond)
Razor Excess vs. other Skechers Razors: more Hyperburst but still super light
The Razor Excess introduces a few tweaks that make it a more cushioned and stable trainer/racer for long distances:
- more Hyperburst: +3 mm of stack height
- wider platform: +10 mm in the midfoot
- roomier fit: feels less like a racing flat and more like a daily trainer to accommodate swelling
- rocker design: plateless but stiff profile for quicker, smoother transitions
For different purposes, consider the other Razor models:
Razor+ - speed trainer
Razor 3 - non-plated racing flat
Razor 3 Elite - extremely lightweight (5.4 oz/153 g), carbon-plated racer
