Skechers have once again cemented their place as a global footwear giant with the eagerly anticipated launch of Skechers GOrun – their first technical running shoe.  Using unique mid-foot strike technology, the shoe encourages a more natural ‘barefoot’ stride.

US Olympic marathon runner Meb Keflezighi recently won his Olympic trial in his Skechers GOruns and cannot speak highly enough about them.

We presented the Australian launch last Wednesday in the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Sydney alongside marathon runner and health and fitness expert, Amelia Burton. Amelia is also a recent convert to Skechers GOrun and gave the audience of health, fitness, running and fashion experts her thoughts on the ‘minimal running shoe’ trend and its benefits and gave some great tips on correct running form.

If the initial response is anything to go by, Skechers GOrun will be on every runner’s shopping list very soon if they’re not already.

See a few snaps from the launch below.  And read up on Skechers GOrun at
