2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Running Shoes

Skechers Gorun $80

The Gorun enters the ever-growing category of “natural motion” running shoes, plus it boasts an affordable price. Its sole flexes with little to no resistance in all directions. The heel has a subtle rocker bottom that forces heel strikers to rapidly roll onto their mid-foot after contact. The upper is soft and non-restrictive. It creates an effective bond between the mid-foot and the sole but allows freedom for the forefoot and heel. It fits approximately a half-size small. Skechers.com
