Skechers GOrun Maxroad 3 Ultra Review

I have mixed history with max cushion shoes.  I understand the concept, but have been wary due to the excessive cushioning almost always impeding my proprioceptive relationship with the ground.  I have discussed some of the biomechanical benefits and limitations previously here, but have found myself feeling sluggish and limited in most max cushion shoes.  The Skechers GOrun Maxroad 3 Ultra has been different.  Different in that I actually get spring out of the midsole, rather than sinking in to it, there is forefoot flexibility, it is lightweight and the toebox shape is great!  I have enjoyed training in this shoe and it has become my go to long run shoe.  The only thing I am confused about is the major name change, but that does not affect the ride quality of the shoe.
