This type of Skechers are always comfortable right out of the box. As a matter of fact, this last pair (I now have five in varying age and tread) arrived just an hour before I was headed out of town for a dog agility trial. I wore them the next three days with no issues at all! Not all Skechers products fit me the same but I never have a problem with this type of sneaker.

Three years ago I wore Skechers GoRun for my first Half Marathon, I loved them and once they were worn out I looked for another pair and could not find one anywhere. so I read up on the new ones that have come out. I read some really good comments about the GoRun4 so I thought I would give them a try. I don't live close to a Skechers store to be able to try them on so I just hoped for the best. I am running my first Marathon on September 17th and had hoped they would work. They fit comfortably and are light weight, but I feel like I am running barefoot, there is no cushion or arch support. I ran 13 miles Saturday and the bottom of my feet started hurting at mile 10. I have an arch support sole I have inserted in the shoe's and will see how they will feel on my 16 mile run this coming Saturday. I don't like to give bad reviews, I just had high hopes that they would work.

    Use for walking and running along paved trails. Bought them for the light weight. Stitching on the tongue rubbed the front of my foot but if I wear socks it's not a problem.

          I am an avid runner, currently training for the NYC marathon. I have a wide forefoot and need cushioning due to issues with the ball of my foot and lots of mileage. At less than 105 lbs., I also prefer lightweight shoes. I bought the GoRun4 based on a very favorable Runner's World review. These shoes are extremely comfortable and perfectly fit my needs. In fact, I like them so much I just bought a second pair. There is nothing about them that I don't like, and I would highly recommend them.

                With running shoes, it is always better for them to fit a little too big than too small. Go up a half size to avoid blisters and black toenails.

                A:

                You may want to see if you can get the right shoe stretched a bit in the toe, or wear a thicker sock on the right foot when you do a little preliminary running just to size them a bit.

                Currently it doesn't look like that color will be coming back into stock in a size 7, it appears to be sold out. There should be a new Skechers GOrun shoe coming shortly though.

                A:

                The Skechers GOrun 4 shoes have stability in the midfoot area, and they encourage a midfoot strike when you run, customers have advised they help their stride. You may also want to look at shoes with more motion control structure such as the Skechers GOrun Forza or Skechers GOmeb Strada 2 models.

                I'm not sure where you are seeing no half sizes, these shoes do come in half sizes though some of the whole and half sizes are currently out of stock in some sizes. But the GOrun 4 2016 models should be available in both whole and half sizes from women's 5 to 10.

                Most of the Skechers Retail stores should be carrying these Skechers GOrun 4 - 2016 models currently, they are the 'flagship' running shoe for the company. If the store does not have your preferred color or size in stock, they will have it sent directly to you with free shipping.

              • A:

                It depends. If you wear an 8 in street shoes, you will need to go up to an 8.5 in these (that's normal for most running shoes). If you plan on running your full in these shoes, you might even consider trying a 9 - your feet will swell during the race, and you may be glad for the extra room. You do not want them so big that it feels like your foot is sliding around, however.
