About this deal

Mac is a former 275 lbs American football defensive lineman who took up running at age 30. Now, at 6’4” (193cm) 220 lbs (91kg) , he has PRs of 19:19, 1:33:34, and 3:19:20. He coaches high school runners. Derek: The upper now uses a new more conventional engineered mesh as the base material. Up front there is an internal toe bumper to keep things propped up, similar to what we had on the MR4+ except this toe bumper feels marginally stiffer. This is it!" A voice in my head screamed when I took it out for a run. The ride was soft and responsive. The transition was smooth, and I kept going. It felt like a marathon shoe. The engineered mesh upper has reinforced overlays throughout the shoe, with a fairly beefy heel counter all the way to a slightly reinforced toe bumper. Mac: I offer this comparison because each uses a slab of Hyperburst coupled with an H plate to mitigate mushiness. MR6 for training; Excess for races for me.

DPT/Footwear Science: C ( Dramatic increase in weight with inappropriate narrowing of sole and loose heel. Unnecessary use of forefoot plate for a shoe that doesn't need it)Peter: The ride is smooth and efficient with a good amount of cushioning. It is fun, but not laugh out loud fun. More, “gosh, I really enjoy running” fun. They aren’t wildly different from the Ride 9, but I think I enjoy the Max Road more. I couldn’t replicate it on purpose, but it happened a few times. If it was more common I’d just use the extra eyelets for a runner’s loop, which usually kills any heel slip issues, but it wasn’t enough to bother. They did include a heel pull tab - and unlike so many others, this one is very well thought out and very functional. We’ve reviewed more than a few shoes over the last year with really cool looking, and completely impractical pull tabs, so I always appreciate that. Peter’s score: 9.5 No big issues with the Max Road 5. I’d like a slightly less absorbent upper, and I’m a bit worried about wear on the outsole, but a solid daily trainer and companion for long miles. Saucony Triumph 21- The excellent Triumph from last year gets a new upper that dials in the fit for an excellent overall ride

Derek: I wear US9.5 in MaxRoad 4, 4+ and 5. In terms of overall, fit 4+ and 5 are very similar in fit, with the 4+ upper feeling a bit softer especially at the toe-box. MaxRoad 5 has a more supportive upper with more focus on overlays on the medial and lateral sides. The big difference is actually the midsole H plate in the MaxRoad 5. This really improves transition and makes the heel feel less flat. MaxRoad 5 is definitely the better ride. Jeff B: I missed out on the FFMv4, but I did review the 3. Very similar to the Bondi, the FFMv3 has tons of cushioning, but it doesn’t feel nearly as good as the Hyperburst Ice in the MR6. Its upper is a step up from the MR6, but otherwise the Skechers Performance is the better shoe. Performance: B+ ( Great shoe for daily training and long uptempo runs. Snappy forefoot, but very soft heel prevents it from going as fast as it could. Heel bevel is extreme and can be clunky during warm up) Stability: C+ ( Skechers offsets some of the instability with width and the H-plate, but overall it still rolls very neutral everywhere and takes some focus) Can you tell me any record-breaking Sketcher in the world of athletics? You see! It is Nike, Saucony, or Brooks that comes to mind. On the downside, such thought is the cause of Skechers misconception, consequently overruling its good reputation.The MaxRoad 6 was a 70g jump from v5 for my size, a near-3oz jump, which is a lot to swallow. I expect a lot more wow from the ride and i didn’t quite get enough of a ride improvement here. As mentioned above, the fit is true to size, and the overall volume of the shoe is essentially unchanged from the MR4+. Overall, nothing overly radical in terms of upper changes, and it still works fairly well.

Stability: B (Better stability than previous, particularly with plate and soft overlays in upper. However, the overly soft sole, overly flexible sole and narrowed midfoot take away from the shoe being as stable as it could be. )If there is a gripe, I would say that the upper is somewhat overdone in terms of materials. If the Adidas Prime X and and Nike Tempo Next% can have such thin uppers for significantly heavier shoes, I don’t see why Skechers wouldn’t do a ripstop variant upper for the MaxRoad. I also mentioned it before with the MaxRoad 4+ but I think they could use 1 more row of eyelets for the laces, and they absolutely should use inelastic laces for this shoe. Peter: The 5 felt a bit mushier and, for me, a bit easier to run in. The 5 is about half an ounce lighter than the 6. There are soft rubberized overlays on the lateral sides of the shoe, and they extend to the heel counter. They give the shoe some frills and structure. They also protect the single mesh upper from abrasion, giving it more life span.

Skechers M-Strike® เสริมประสิทธิภาพและความนุ่มนวลในการลงเท้า และกระจายน้ำหนักทั่วฝ่าเท้าได้มากยิ่งขึ้น David: I enjoyed my time in the Skechers GOrun Max Road 6 though I do have some recommendations. I feel the platform could have more sole flaring through the heel and forefoot. I think the heel could have a small plate or shank to stabilize the foam, even if it is not connected with the forefoot plate. My other recommendation would be to make the shoe less forefoot heavy and make the overall profile a tad more balanced. They’ve gone fairly standard with the heel collar being decently padded, though I experienced an odd fit a few of the times I ran in them that I had to really get my heel planted before lacing them, otherwise I’d get some slip. Peter: The Max Road 4 was a near miss for me. It felt a bit unstable, gave me some weird blisters, and was ultimately too soft for me to enjoy running in. It reminded me of some other shoes that I felt like I should like, but seemed to sap some energy. While I love Hyperburst in the Razor line (and the new Speed Freek), it seemed unwieldy in the Max Road 4. Lo and Behold, the Max Road 5 is a truly excellent update. The folks in the lab at Skechers Performance figured out how to tame this big old slab of Hyperburst and it’s a really nice shoe. Peter: The Clifton feels softer but somehow more responsive and easier to push through miles. For sheer cushion I’d consider Clifton, for a bit more of a standard trainer on Max volume perhaps the Max Road. The Clifton has a better upper for sure.

เทคโนโลยีสำคัญสำหรับ Gorun Maxroad 5

David: The Skechers GOrun MaxRoad 5 definitely comes more alive in the new model. The midsole remains the same using the supercritical EVA hyperburst foam and the pod design to the outsole. The new feature is the H plate in the forefoot. This firms up the platform through the midline of the shoe and then through the medial and lateral aspect through the forefoot. This is noticeable throughout the ride. Even though there is the H plate there is still some flexibility through the forefoot that helps give some snappiness at the toe off. The shoe still rides better at easy paces and at daily paces for me, but can handle a little bit of uptempo work in the new model. The ride is still pretty soft throughout but gives a little bit more ground feel and stability thanks to the plate.
