The New Skechers Trail Shoe Looks Radically Fast

June 19, 2019 Sports and Outdoors By
Key Specs:
Brand: Skechers
Model: Go Run Speed Trail Hyper
Price: $125
Availability: Fall 2019
Unique Features: At just 8 ounces, this trail runner is lightweight, yet supportive for speedy and damp paths.

Upshot: Skechers brings its relatively new and super lightweight Hyper Burst foam (the same deployed in the Go Run 7 and the GoRun Razor 3 Hyper) to trail shoes. The Go Run Speed Trail Hyper has a burrito construction and self-tightening heel lock for the perfect fit, plus the forefoot plate provides an added spring to your step on hills.

Who It’s For: Trail runners who want something lightweight that also has a bold look.

Insight: From the eye-catching primary colors in the upper and outsole to the locked-down lacing system and detailing along the collar, the Skechers Go Run Speed Trail Hyper looks like a gold medal winner. The shoe has an H-shaped forefoot plate that helps with energy return, so you don’t lose as much ground to the moss-lined paths and your competitors. The translucent mono mesh that makes up the single layer upper dries in the breeze and won’t hold sweat, meaning you won’t carry excess weight over a long distance.
