I have tried to move on to a different shoe over the last year just for a change but "Nothing Compares to You". The Sketechers Go Run is whisper quiet with an almost spongy sole that is durable. Three years ago I was at a dance competition in Chicago and decided to go to the mall and take a look at some running shoes. After several stores and trying on different brands I was drawn back to the Go Runs. These shoes took me under the 8 minute mile in my 5k and are wonderful for longer runs. I ran a half marathon a couple days ago and I just can't say enough about these shoes. My feet felt like they could easily do a full marathon. You may think Brooks, Saucony, Newton, or some other brand when it comes to running shoes and they may give you confidence with the names but I will dare you to compare.

initially enjoyed the ride but felt rubbing on achilles. annoying at first but after buying a second pair and using for my long runs and middle distance runs both of my achilles became bruised and painful. the tab is too high and pushing into the achilles. it is not at all like all the other Skechers shoes that i have used. also, don't understand why a hole in the adhilles tab was thought to be a good idea. further, the drop with insole is 8mm, without the insole it is 4mm. it is good to have the option but i would prefer a zero drop without the insole. finally, if you don't expect problems with achilles rub then i would recommend the Go Run 4 but if this could be seen as a problem then i would look to other Skechers shoes that don't have the high achiles tab with the hole.

Comments about Skechers GOrun 4:

I am training for a marathon and my first run in these shoes was an 18 mile long run. The conditions were not ideal, including having to run through a foot of water at times, due to washed out surfaces. The shoes held up really well and were very comfortable over the hours of running that I did. The water drained from the shoe exceptionally well also. No blister or anything. I am very, very pleased with the quality of these shoes. I even bought a second pair and that pair is as outstanding as the first! Very happy!! :)

        • Q:

          How much support (arch, ankle, etc.) is provided by these shoes? Are they very supportive if at all? I have flat feet and am wondering if this is a shoe I should get or if I should look for a different Skechers shoe for better support. I am considering buying these but am concerned that there is not much support because of how little they weigh. Thanks!

            A:

            The Skechers GOrun 4 has an advanced design with Resalyte material in the midsole that provides excellent support at the arch, and the shoe encourages a midfoot strike, which helps to provide a more natural gait. If you normally like a more cushioned or more robust arch when you run, you may also want to look at the Skechers GOrun Ride 4, or the Skechers GOrun Ultra Road shoes.

        • Q:

          Runners World in its review of the Go Run 4 indicates that the drop is more than 9mm. Did they factor in the additional insole? And if they did why is it still more than the 4mm Skechers claims?

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            If you add in the extra included insole into the Skechers GOrun 4 you will get that higher drop height. If you use only the one insole, the drop height is 4mm. I am not sure why it is still more, but the official drop height of this shoe is 4mm.

        • Q:

          I currently run in the GoRun 3 and pull out the insoles to have a zero drop. I noticed the GoRun 4 have a 4mm heel toe drop but does that include the insole? Does the 4 have a removable insole like the 3 and can it get down to zero drop? If not, do any of your new performance running shoes have zero drop? Thanks for you reply.

            A:

            The Skechers GOrun 4 shoes are much like the Skechers GOrun 3 - they include a 4mm insole inside the shoe, and another optional insole you can also add in. If you have been able to remove the 4mm insoles of the Run 3, the same should be true for the Run 4. There may also be some zero drop shoes coming soon, more from the Skechers GObionic line.

        • Q:

          Why does skechers not offer the wide option in the go run 4 like they did with the original go run? The forefoot is too tight on the medium for us wide foot runners.

            A:

            The Skechers GOrun 4 is not currently made in a wide width. There should be a wide width option in some of the next generation running shoes though.

            Answered on 7/6/2015 by Tim the Shoe Guy from SKECHERS
        • Q:

          There is a huge community of runners that need a wide selection in the go run series! You all offered the wide option in the first generation. Why does skechers not give the wide runners a option? The roomy forefoot that you all advertise is not wide enough for wide foot runners.

            A:

            The first generation Skechers GOrun was the blueprint for the Skechers GOrun shoes, and its spirit lives on in the Skechers GOrun 4 - it has a lot of the same features as the original, super light weight, great ground feel, minimal drop, Resalyte comfort. I would recommend giving these a try if you enjoyed the original design.

            I ran 1 marathon and a 100 Kilometer race in my GORuns. They held up well. I've worn 2 pair and enjoyed both as my favorite shoe and one of the best tried. As I run around 100 Kilometers a week, I need support and a shoe that will last. GORun foots the bill. In addition, unlike other shoes with similar support, these are light enough for speed workouts. An awesome shoe.

            The Skechers GOrun 4 is ideally intended for running, but we have heard from several customers who use them as part of their fitness training as well. They are very lightweight and comfortable, and should be very good for use on a treadmill.
