Skechers Pro Speed: A True Running Shoe

There’s a new running shoe on the block! And this is more of the real McCoy than their previous version, the Skechers Resistance Runner (SRR) which I reviewed months ago here. The new Skechers is called Pro Speed and is much lighter, agile and looks more of a running shoe. I was able to test run the shoe for a few minutes on the treadmill and the performance and feel seems promising. I cant give a comprehensive review right now as, I’ve said, I just got to try it for a few minutes to get its feel.

The Pro Speed was launched last night at its main store at the Market! Market! Mall in Taguig and it had as a special guest, Miss Chinggay Andrada, a certified professional Fitness Trainer and co-host to the popular local reality tv series, The Biggest Loser. Chinggay is one gregarious host, very friendly, far from the stern personality she has with the show’s contestants.

Also met the pretty Katrina Ong, Marketing Communications Officer of Skechers and their efficient service staff.

A short description of the shoe:

  • The ProSpeed SRR features the patented Smart Shoe™ Technology, the rocker-bottom that guides runners into mid-foot strike position. This mid-foot strike design transforms the energy of impact, through the Kinetic Return System, into forward motion with every stride.
  • The shoes literally give runners a spring in their step as they feel a distinctive bounce forward upon toe-off or push off,”
  • The Skechers ProSpeed SRR is also lightweight due to the Resalyte™ cushioning with memory retention that reduces impact for a supported, comfortable ride during runs. Each ProSpeed comes in just under 10 oz. per shoe depending on the size.

Here are some pictures of the event last night:
