Full review of the Skechers GOrun 5:

Get the Skechers GOrun 5 and help support Gearist!

Road Runner Sports:

Despite the fact that Meb Keflezghi won the 2014 Boston Marathon in them and despite the fact that they’ve been playing with the big boys and girls in the running shoe game for years now, there are still plenty of people who haven’t gotten their feet into Skechers Performance running shoes yet. Whether that’s because they just haven’t had the chance or because they don’t want to be seen wearing what was until just a few years ago, strictly a fashion brand (endorsed by none other than Kim Kardashian). In fact, our own run category manager, Lori, had never run in them and had her own reservations despite our enthusiastic endorsement! Without any further pretense or ado, We’d like to introduce you to the latest (and best?) iteration of the GOrun, the GOrun 5 from Skechers Performance.

Glad to see you back! Shoes and gear reviews are awesome. Love the details with the energy. Tips and tricks are awesome too. I love you DIY steel plate screws for running on ice and snow.

Reviews are bread and butter , but what originally brought me in was the Ironman training series.  So, personally I love another series on training for the next big thing, whaterver that may be for you and the Gearist team.

Bought the exact same shoe over the past weekend solely on the super sale I found. First real run today was a 5 mile and the shoes were surprisingly good. feet were a little sore after but they are lighter shoes for a more muscalur guy like myself. I’m sure after a few more runs ill adjust too it better

matthew geraghty says:

I feel like you can geek out on shoes all day and I LOVE IT!  Welcome back!

Ian Williamson says:

Great to see you back mate I have a question though why do you Americans use mm for shoe drop and not inches?

Shri Hari says:

Should I get the Nike zoom fly or the go run 5?

Daniel Fogg says:

Welcome back, Brandon! Just got this shoe and love it; find it very comparable to the Nike LunarTempo.

Stoked to see you guys are BACK!!! I would love to see more reviews on clothing and hydration and accessories for all sports you cover, running, biking, swimming, and camping. I also wouldn’t mind seeing more content of any kind. As a Topo Athletic, Rabbit, and Honey Stinger ambassador if you ever need a review of there products I will surely write and send you what you need/want. Keep up the good work, looking forward to what comes next.

gdkmouse says:

nice to see you back doing reviews. with regards to what I would like to see more of… as with The Ginger runner, training for different types of races, ordinary road marathons, trail marathons, ultras etc. seeing what it takes, to do the actual races as i often start training while , but it starts to go down hill ( no pun intended) , then panic stations before the race. When race day is here, the poo starts to hit the fan, and end up being last(sad face emoji).

When i see the people on you tube , they always seem perfect, real life is not always as perfect as it is shown on some youtube videos.

Brooks Clarke says:

Great review and good to have you guys back. I love how in-depth you get with the technical aspects of each shoe.

One bit of constructive criticism for your videos: When you hold the shoe up to the camera for a close-up, the camera doesn’t focus on the shoe, so we just get a big blurry shoe in our face. I’m assuming you have the camera’s focus set manually. Maybe try either doing a review with auto focus or including cut-away shots.

Anyway, thanks for all the awesome videos over the years.

Kip Count says:

How’d the width on these? Typical D width, or is it a little more forgiving?
