SKECHERS GORUN FORZA 3
PRICE: R1 749 WEIGHT: 264 grams (M), 210 grams (W)
This is the shoe for longhaul durability. The Forza 3 features a full-length rubber outsole and an updated post, giving runners plenty of stability for a lightweight shoe.
Our wear-testers specifically pointed out how well this shoe held up over longer distances, up to a half marathon (which is not the case for all lightweight shoes), and on a variety of terrains. The latest Forza is about 28 grams lighter thanks to a new midsole foam, which our weartesters felt provided better overall cushioning.
A key update comes in the form of a dense foam support post, which now runs into the forefoot (instead of ending midfoot) to offer a smoother ride. SKECHERS (MELROSE ARCH, JOHANNESBURG) 011 020 0865
