Skechers Go Run Ride 9 Review

Skechers on Table

Skechers makes quality shoes and sneakers. I’ve been wearing the GoRun series for a while and really enjoy them. They are quick, responsive and they are extremely comfortable. I absolutely love them!

Recently, I received the Skechers Go Run Ride 9 for review. Here’s what I thought.

Plus, Edward Cheserek, a Kenyan distance runner who is a 17-time NCAA champion collegiate distance runner for the University of Oregon, wears these sneakers!!!!

Taking them for a test run (or two or three…)

I always wear my sneakers around when I’m breaking them in. I find that the more I walk in them the more they mold to my feet. So I did that for about a week before taking them out on a run.

When I took them for a run, I loved the lightness of the shoe and its responsiveness. I found them extremely comfortable and loved wearing them. I plan on wearing them for future training runs on both hard surface areas like roads and sidewalks and on softer materials like tracks or packed dirt roads. They are just perfect for both.

You can pick them up by going to the Skechers store in Roosevelt Field or any other store where Skechers are sold. Or, you can pick them up online at
