Use: in my current line up for the 2017 Ultra Marathon Season, I have integrated the Skechers GoRun Ultra Road in my Recovery Run line. I currently use the GoRun Ultra Road on Recovery Run days or days when my feet and legs just need that little extra cushion. with only 3mm higher in stack height of 26mm/30mm from the GoRun Ride 5 stack height of 23mm/27mm, it is a great shoe I can take anywhere and not worry about feet fatigue, because my feet are happy and comfy in a pillowee soft feel on the GoRun Ultra Road.

NOTE: if anyone knows if the next updated version will be releasing if not released yet. I like how Skechers Performance split the Ultra Series in 2 aspects:

        I run every other day between 5 and 7.5 miles, runs that have some pretty extreme hills.
        Go Run Ultra Road are the shoes that save my knees with cushioning.
        I can't provide any suggestions for improvements, I like alternating throughout the Skecher's line-up for shoes with different feel for different runs.
        All I can hope is that you guys continue to keep up the quality and incremental improvements from year to year.
        I'm also a huge Meb Keflezighi fan, didn't know who he was before wearing Skecher's.
        Skecher's, you could never imagine the love I have for your shoes. I'm 54 years old and having great runs - your shoes are incredible.

            Q:

            I love the GOrun Ultra 2 and cried when I found out they are discontinued. They support my HIGH ARCHES and have plenty of CUSHION for arthritic knees from years of soccer injuries. Are these GOrun Ultra R the next best thing in comparison to the GOrun Ultra 2 when comparing arch height, cushion, etc.? Also, is the GOrun Ultra R an abbreviated name for the GOrun Ultra ROAD? So many people loved the GO Run Ultra 2. Why did you discontinue it???

              A:

              The Skechers GOrun Ultra platform is now two different running shoe designs - the GOrun Ultra R or Ultra Road has the maximum cushioning Ultra midsole and a road-ready rubber outsole suitable for road or track smooth surface running. The Ultra Trail shoe is now the Skechers GOtrail 2 - it has nearly the same Ultra midsole but adds a stabilizing plate for off road running. So if you are looking for a smooth surface runner I would recommend the Ultra Road 2, if you are looking for an all terrain runner, the GOtrail 2.

              The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road shoes are no longer available. If you have them saved, you should be able to see the product page, but there are no longer sizes available. However, I have been able to verify that there is a new version of the Ultra Road coming in June/July.

              A:

              I don't see an upcoming next generation of the Skechers GOrun Ultra Road, but there may be one in the next wave of Performance shoes. There is a new Ultra Trail shoe, so it is reasonable that the Road, which came later, is due for a later release.

              A:

              The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road does have a good amount of structure in the midfoot, and lots of cushioning, so they should be a decent choice for your needs. For even more stability you may want to look at the Skechers GOrun Forza model.

            I have a pair of the GRUR with close to 70-80 miles on them and I LOVE THEM!!!!! I am looking for a light weight shoe for speed workouts, shorter runs. What shoe would you suggest that would have close to the same responsiveness of the GRUR? The responsiveness of the GRUR is like no other I have run in.

            Thanks in advance.

              If you like the Skechers GOrun Ultra Road I can also recommend the Skechers GOrun Ride 5 - they are a bit lower profile than the Ultra Road, but are lighter weight and more suitable for shorter runs in comfort.

              The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road is meant for longer distance running, and that could include a marathon if you normally like a more cushioned shoe. There are more minimal shoes of the type that more marathon runners favor, though.

            I currently use a GoRun 3 for running and need to buy a new pair of shoes. I like the responsiveness in GR 3, but at the same time would like more durability. I run about 20-25 miles a week. Would the GR Ultra R be a recommended change, considering that I value both responsiveness and durability?

              A:

              The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road does have a lot of durability and has a similar road-running profile like the Skechers GOrun 3. The Ultra adds more cushioning, so it is less of a barefoot-feel shoe than the GOrun 3 would be. The additional support, comfort and durability should be good for your needs.
