Skechers GOrun 7 Hyper

The Draw: Market disruptor

Skechers’ new midsole material, called “Hyper Burst,” is going to shake up the running shoe universe the same way that thermoplastic polyurethane materials like Adidas’ Boost and Saucony’s Everun impacted the market. Using nitrogen and a dough- like expansion process, the Hyper Burst is lighter than TPU and seemingly compression proof, unlike EVA, so it has incredible energy return without the weight or sacrifice in durability. The GoRun 7 Hyper’s knit upper provides security without overlays for a sock-like hold and breathability, and the midfoot strike-dynamic makes it an ideal shoe for running off the bike.
