This is my 4th pair in 4 generations of the GoRun Ultra; I'm curious to see if the new material on the bottom of this "Road" versions lasts longer than prior versions. I like the cushion and the shape of the insole promotes my stride.

I have been a fan of previous Skechers Performance running shoes and specifically the predecessor of this shoe, the Go Run Ultra Road. For this new model, the upper was a poor design. With the trend in the performance running shoe industry toward lighter, breathable upper materials, the upper on this new Go Run Ultra Road 2 felt goofy. I would prefer something more like the Skechers Go Run 5 with a more snug fitting upper that has the stretchiness to flex during use. I had planned to use the new Go Run Ultra Road 2 for marathon training and race day but I could not get past 10 miles with the uncomfortable behavior of the upper. PS. from a quality control perspective, I noticed that the design on the rear of the shoe was a bit different between left and right shoe.

    I use these shoes for my daily walks. The cushion sole feel like walking on pillows. It softens the jolt on your joints. When I replace them, I still use my old shoes for daily casual wear.

        • Skechers GOrun Ultra Road 2

          Q:

          I have numerous pairs of the Go Run Ultra R 2 with the 5Gen midsole. What is the difference between the 5Gen and the new Flight Gen midsole in a more cushioned model like the Ultra R 2? I am wondering specifically which is more responsive, springy and firmer, and which is more plush and softer?

            A:

            The newer FLIGHT GEN midsole is lighter weight and nicely responsive - most customers rate it as being very comfortable and shock absorbent but still responsive. There will be a new Ultra Road type shoe coming for the Fall season with the newer generation of midsole.

          Q:

          I tried on the Skechers GOrun Ride 7, and found them to be narrow in the forefoot (I have a wide forefoot--usually run in Altra Paradigms.) Are these wider in the forefoot that the GOrun Ride 7? I like the foam of the Ride 7, are these mushier than the Ride 7 or the same?
          Thanks,
          Charlie.

            A:

            The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road 2 should feel a little more padded than the GOrun Ride 7, it's one increment up in padding, but has a road-ready outsole. These should fit roomy at toe and forefoot, for natural toe splay.

            From what I can see, the Skechers GOrun Ultra maximum cushioning platforms will get a redesign for Fall 18, the new model is called the Maxroad 3 Ultra, and the trail version the Maxtrail 5 Ultra. The new models should continue the highly cushioned design of the Ultra Road with an even lighter and more capable shoe.

          I see the Ultra Trail model of this shoe is coming out in 2018. The GoRun Maxtrail Ultra 5, it looks great in the photos I have seen. Will it be as wide in the forefoot as The Ultra Road 2 fits my foot perfectly like the Skecheres GoTrail Ultra 3 does, will the Maxtrail Ultra 5 remain as wide in the forefoot area?

            From what I have seen of the upcoming shoes, there should be a similar fit and feel as the previous Ultra shoes but a lighter weight midsole with improved cushioning.

          Q:

          Why is the Ultra Road 2 not on the rocker platform? Last years model was and so was my all time favorite shoe, the GoTrail Ultra 3. This years trail model, the GoTrail Ultra 4 is on the rocker platform. I do not like that shoe at all, and was considering buying the road shoe. Why would they continue with the rocker platform in the road shoe too?

            A:

            The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road 2 is built along the lines of the Ultra Road 1, which featured all of the cushioning midsole of the Ultra Trail shoe but a more road-ready sole with a flatter design suitable for running on roads, sidewalks, tracks and other smooth surfaces. That is less of the rocker design of the trail model, but still has that thick sole and well padded arch that gives a rocker-inspired feel and encourages a midfoot strike.

            The Skechers GOrun Ultra Road 2 should be very similar in design and insole size to the Skechers GOtrail Ultra model, as they both share the Ultra construction.
