American Meb Keflezighi Wins Boston Marathon Wearing Skechers
The adidas adiZero adios is the most decorated distance running shoe series of this decade. For example, the last marathon we covered here on Sneaker News was the 2013 NYC race, which Geoffrey Mutai won in the Boost edition. But we might be witnessing the start of a great change in the distance running performance space, as an American runner has captured an emotionally charged victory at the Boston Marathon wearing a brand that we’d consider unlikely if it weren’t for Meb’s track record. Meb Keflezighi’s Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 is a lightweight and flexible ride that got him to the finish line in just over 2:08 as the first American citizen to win the Beantown circuit in over three decades. Click in for a closer view of the GOmeb Speed 3 and let us know if you see yourself training and racing in Skechers.
American citizen you mean from war-torn native of Eritrea (Somalia).
He was given the 'O' visa for being an outstanding athlete.
The US is desperate to have an "American" to win Boston Marathon because Africans have been dominating the race for decades.
From "O' visa, he was fastracked and awarded US citizenship in 1998. And the rest is history.
I have been running in the Go Run 2's, Go Run Ride 2's, and the Go Run Ultras for six months now, and I love all of them. I would LOVE to find a pair of Speeds to try, but I've just never been able to find a pair that I could try before I buy.
