Global footwear giant Skechers ( have only been in the performance running shoe market for around 18 months, but have big ambitions to make serious inroads into the running and triathlon footwear scene.

While the name will be familiar, the connection with triathlon is perhaps best known through their sponsorship of the Virgin Active London Triathlon, and we're sure many of you will have seen, tried on or purchased from their colourful range at the London Triathlon Expo last September.

On a global level, US marathon runner Meb Keflezighi (fourth at the London 2012 Olympics), is their marquee sponsored athlete. They are also showing commitment to the UK running market as Official Race Sponsor of the Milton Keynes Marathon ( on 6th May this year.

Last week we attended the Skechers Press Day launching the 2013 range at a (very!) fashionable Soho hotel in Central London and saw some of their new products which include the GObionic and the new GOrun2 shoes.

You can check out this short video montage of the day, plus a look at the GOBionic and GOrun2 shoes with Brett Worth, Skechers Performance Marketing Executive.
