I own three Skechers performance running shoes:
- GoBionic--most minimal of their shoe line. Very lightweight, extremely flexible, no support/motion control, and a modicum of cushioning. These are great short or middle distance race shoes and faster training shoes. I am comfortable running 10-12 miles in them. Good ground feel.
- GoRun 2--sort of the middle child of the shoe line-up. Still lightweight, still flexible, but now with extra cushioning. Still not heavily cushioned, but much more than the GoBionic. I can easily run 12-15 miles in them and feel fine. After about 18-20 miles, they start to feel at their limit (for me). An ideal everyday trainer. You can go fast or go long. Nice combination of ground feel and protection.
- GoRun Ride--Fairly lightweight and still flexible, but now with "maximal" cushioning (for a regular running shoe). I haven't reached my long run limit in these yet...but plan on running in them at my next 100-mile race in early April. I should easily get 25 miles in them, maybe 50. Because they have a pretty good slab of cushioning, they are fairly protective on trails. Rocks and roots are absorbed. Not the greatest ground feel, but they still feel light and responsive.
