Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper Named Gear of the Year
Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper named “Gear of the Year” by Runner’s World editors in September/October 2019 issue.
Runner’s World editors awarded the Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper because of its innovative new midsole and performance that ranked highly among wear-testers. It also stood out by offering responsive cushioning that felt protective for such a lightweight shoe.
“It’s been an incredible year for our Hyper Burst performance running shoes. Runner’s World naming the Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper an ‘Editors’ Choice’ in the Spring marked a new era for our Performance Division, but to be back in the magazine as best of the best on the ‘Gear of the Year’ list is a true honor. Our team of designers introduced a groundbreaking evolution with Hyper Burst, which is now found in a range of styles throughout our collection. This recognition serves as a reminder that every type of runner can turn to Skechers for shoes that are lightweight, while still offering the comfort and support they desire.”Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers.
Introduced by the Skechers Performance Division in November 2018, the foundation of the 6.4 oz. Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper is the Hyper Burst midsole, which is made using a “super critical” foaming process to create spherically-shaped cells in tight format.
It is the lightest and most resilient midsole foam that Skechers Performance has offered to date. The unique irregular cell structure is unlike most other EVA foams on the market today.
The Skechers Performance division was established when Meb Keflezighi wore the first model of Skechers GO RUN in 2012, and the collection has earned respect throughout the running world and won numerous awards within the footwear industry. Skechers Elite runner Edward Cheserek trains, races and has won numerous events in products featuring the new Hyper Burst midsole.
The Skechers GO RUN collection for men and women is available at Skechers retail stores and skechers.com, as well as select retail partners.
