Innovation

Skechers Performance™ creates a unique partnership between athlete and brand, with a solid foundation and philosophy of listening to the athlete. Our footwear and apparel are designed and engineered to the highest standards: the athlete’s standards. We have a team of world-class athletes who bring experience, knowledge and passion to the product creation process. It is our motto to GO LIKE NEVER BEFORE® and our goal is to provide the best and most innovative footwear and apparel in the market today and into the future.


The key advancement in the latest generation of Skechers GO RUN footwear is the new innovative 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 cell structure is unlike most other EVA foams on the market today.  It’s featured in the Skechers GO RUN 7 Hyper™ which was recently named “Gear of the Year” for the road running category by Outside magazine as well as the Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper™ training and race day shoe which was named “Editors’ Choice” in a March/April 2019 Runner’s World cover story.

Our newest generation performance walking shoe, Skechers GO WALK 5™, is now machine washable for easy care. Every style features lightweight and responsive Ultra GO cushioning, high-rebound Comfort Pillar Technology, plus a Skechers Air-cooled Goga Mat insole for added support and comfort.
