Skechers took home two editorial awards at the recent Outdoor Retailer show in Denver, CO. Its new road running shoe, Skechers Go Run Maxroad 4 Hyper, was given the “Best of Outdoor Retailer” award by Shape magazine as well as “Editors’ Choice Outdoor Retailer” by Runner’s World.
Shape editors noted: “We’re suckers for running sneakers with that soft, sock-like knit upper, and these are a beautiful pair on the brand’s bouncy and responsive cushioning technology. For a smooth, neutral run with a featherlight feel, slip in, lace them up and head out.”
As for Runner’s World take on Maxroad 4 Hyper, the editors cited its lightweight and good cushioning, thanks to its Hyperburst midsole. “The material is produced with some fun science (plasma!) to create a platform that’s responsive and cushioned yet weighs less than a traditional EVA foam.”
The awards continue the brand momentum as earlier this year, Skechers Go Run Razor 3 Hyper was named Editors’ Choice by Runner’s World, and Outside named Skechers Go Run 7 Hyper “Gear of the Year” for the road running category in its Summer 2019 Buyer’s Guide.
“As the awards keep coming in, it’s clear that runners and editors have fallen in love with our collection of performance shoes featuring our innovative Hyper Burst cushioning,” states Michael Greenberg, president. “We will continue expanding the range of products featuring this groundbreaking technology to make it accessible, so more runners can find it in their favorite style to experience for themselves.”
