Skechers GOrun Ride 9 (Hyper): solid daily trainer
It is the ninth update to the acclaimed GOrun Ride daily trainer series from Skechers.
Featuring the brand’s magic-formula Hyperburst midsole, it boasts an impressive cushioning-to-weight ratio. Firmer than that in the Skechers MaxRoad 4, it works admirably from slower, recovery paces up to moderate tempo runs.
GOrun Ride 9 vs. Ride 8: a step-up
A few significant changes are introduced in version 9:
- Lighter weight: 1 oz (28 g) less
- Added stack height: 1mm more
- Less stiff: the forefoot now bends easier thanks to the flex grooves
- Added rocker: a bit quicker on transitions
- Lighter upper: less bulk
