Holiday Giveaway #4: SKECHERS GoMeb Speed 3
Welcome to the week of Christmas! I am still in the giving spirit and I am excited to announce the winner of my Genuine Health contest is Jordan!
Last week, I went home for dinner and my sister and I made a discovery about my mother.
If there is anything that is new, limited or special edition or in short supply, she WILL buy it. Her pantry is full of snow flake Ritz crackers, strangely flavoured holiday hot chocolate and we were among the first to snag the green ketchup back in the day.
I really can’t say much because I am the exact same when it comes to running gear. Special edition product for races is totally my thing, so when Skechers offered to let me try out their limited edition shoe from the New York City Marathon 2014, I was all over it. It’s a genetic thing.
The style is GoMeb Speed 3 which is built on the same generation as the traditional GoMeb Speed. This shoe was designed for Meb Keflezighi which is the shoe he wore when he won the Boston Marathon. (This will be good luck for me as I am training to race it hard this year!)
It is a pretty shoe that looks speedy! It is loaded with subtle technology to make your run as efficient as possible.
- M-Strike Technology which promotes a healthy midfoot strike delivers maximum energy with every step.
- Resalyte™ Midsole – Proprietary lightweight injection-molded compound with memory retention helps absorb impact.
- Dupont Delrin™ material Stability Plate in midfoot for a supportive and secure run with even less weight.
- Light weight design – 6.1 oz. in a women’s size 7
- Independent circular GOimpulse sensors for a more responsive running experience.
- Improved GOimpulse sole layout
The shoes come with two pairs of laces so you can mix and match depending on how you want the shoe to look.
I have been running in these shoes for the past couple weeks and I find they are a roomy fit for most foot widths.
I didn’t feel like there was a period where I needed to break them in – they were comfortable and easy from the moment I put them on my feet and I didn’t have any rubbing or blisters. They are built for speed so there is not a lot of cushioning, but because of the sturdy sole, there is a surprising amount of stability for such a light shoe.
I also love all the special little craftmanship details on this shoe, from the NYC signature to the extra laces.
This is one of my favourite Skechers training shoes to date and I would love to share a pair for you to try out as well!
Skechers is offering a pair of these shoes to a Laces and Lattes reader. It is open to both men and women with men’s version in orange.
Deadline to enter is Dec 27 at 12 PM EST. The winner will be announced next Monday, Dec 29 along with the final giveaway in December!
