Shoe of the Week: Skechers Performance GoMeb Strada 2

Check out what our testers thought of Skechers' latest.

Nicely updated from the original Strada, the second edition of this neutral trainer feels slightly more flexible and fluid while still retaining a soft and springy sensation in each stride. The biggest change from the original version—and the biggest improvement—is the new three-layer reinforced mesh upper that allows the shoe to be much more breathable than the first version yet just as secure. The Strada 2 continues its slight rocker profile that allows smooth heel-to-toe transitions. Our wear testers loved the energetic feeling this shoe provides, no matter when running fast during a tempo run or while taking it easy at the end of a long run or recovery session. The lacing system and the internal webbing of the new upper provide a comfortable and very snug fit.

Our wear-test team liked a lot about this shoe, but a few testers thought the cushioning was a bit too stout.

This is the shoe for you if … You’re looking for a well-cushioning everyday trainer with an energetic feeling.
