Skechers updated its award-winning spring shoe with a weather-resistant upper for the fall.
Fit-Feel-Ride: Built for running through inclement weather, this is a weatherized version of the award-winning GoRun Ultra trail shoe that debuted in the spring. Like that model, the GoRun Ultra Extreme has copious amounts of super soft cushioning, a rockered profile, a plush interior and an easy-flexing demeanor. Although it is maximally cushioned and higher off the ground than many shoes, it’s super light and nimble, and serves up a smooth, completely uninhibited ride. The water-resistant upper stops moisture from soaking through and keeps feet warm, making this shoe ideal for splashing through puddles, sloppy trails and wet roads. Thanks to its soft cushioning and lightweight, pliable design, this shoe runs just as well on roads as it does on trails. This shoe has only modest toe box and sidewall protection, and it lacks an underfoot rock plate. The thick, soft midsole helps keep some (but certainly not all) sharp trail obstacles at bay.
This shoe is for you if … you want a soft, maximally cushioned shoe for running mild to moderate trails in wet, sloppy conditions.
