Skechers showed off the shoe Meb Keflezighi will wear in this fall’s New York City Marathon for the first time on Aug. 5. A slight update of the GORun Speed shoe that debuted earlier this year, the GOMeb marathon racing flat will be available in limited quantities at selected retailers in and around New York City on Oct. 15. The gold, gray and black color hues will match the Skechers running kit Meb will be wearing in the race. (The pair of shoes Meb will be wearing will be built off of a custom last to accommodate for his exceptionally narrow feet.) The GoMeb ($110) weighs 6.8 oz. for a men’s size 9, has a 4mm heel-toe drop and has a lightweight interior shank for an added touch of stability.
