I have exciting news! Just recently, I became an ambassador for Skechers. They sent me two pairs of shoes to try out, and OMG I LOVE THEM. Allison was freaking out about the Go Run 4s, so naturally, I tried them out first.
I’ve run in Asics Nimbus for years. Years and years and years. And those bad boys hold a 12mm heel drop (which is pretty much like running in high heels) so for me to go from those to the Skechers Go Run 4s, which are a 4mm heel drop, would be a big change and would probably put a high stress on my achilles tendons. So before I left the house, I slid two blue gel heel pads into my shoes underneath the insoles, just to ease the tension on my calves.
The run was glorious. Andrew and I took off for a 5 miler in the dusk, 5 days out from the BMO Vancouver Marathon. I can best compare the Skechers Go Run 4s to the Saucony Kinvaras I used to race in. Low profile, extremely light, easy glide.
But don’t let me be the one to convince you to try them. Stacey gave them a test drive, and she has a lot to say about it.
Have you guys ever ran in Skechers? Did you know that they sponsor Kara Goucher and Meb Keflezighi?!
All kinds of awesome. This is the first time I’ve tried them as running shoes (I have a pair of casual ones) and I am solidly impressed.
Which running shoes do you wear? TELL ME.
Would you rather eat a tablespoon of butter or soy sauce?
Can I eat both at the same time? TWSS.
