The extreme "rocker" does not really agree with me as it has caused me knee pains.
This is super flexible compared to other Hoka max cushioned shoes because of the really deep ridges.
The GOtrail Ultra 3 and Ultra Road have opened my mind to the possibility of max cushion shoes providing a ride that still feels natural and is more of an enhancement, in the form of added cushioning, that still works with a runners natural stride.
Usually a very soft shoe is not stable or much fun on trail but not so here. It's a great shoe on all but super off camber rocky stuff for me.
Although it has offered trail shoes since its inception into performance running five years ago, Skechers is unveiling its first semi-technical off-road running model with the Go Ultra Trail 3.
That over-the-top cushioning won top marks from many testers, while others found it too squishy and unstable, particularly on uneven trails.
- A full rubber outsole is an improvement of the Skechers GOtrail Ultra 3. With this, traction and durability are both given proper attention, making this shoe the footwear for different types of trails. The drainage system is also added in a fully drainable design with ports in the midsole. It allows easy draining of water or wetness, thus preventing weight when running through the wet trails.
- Softness is one of the things improved in the Ultra 3. This is due to its cushioning system that is composed of the Next Generation Resalyte Midsole. It provides ultimate softness and comfort that is responsive enough despite the maximalist style.
- The deep flex grooves design is also added to improve the flexibility and to enhance the soft cushioning of the shoe for a better and more enjoyable run.
The size and fit of the Ultra 3 is designed to accommodate standard length and width with reinforced toe, heel, and lace areas for added comfort. The toe box area is wide enough and snug to allow movement all along the stride. There is plenty of room for the toes to splay, even during the hot summer run. The mid-foot and heel area are also designed to be comfortably snug fit, especially in the soft foot bed and seamless upper that hugs the foot.
The Ultra 3 features an outsole made of the new rubber outsole with multi-surface traction system with aggressive 4mm lugs geometrically placed underneath. The lugs placed in the forefoot area are facing forward, while those placed in the heel area are facing backward. This design, which is relatively the same as the Ultra 4, is for better traction and stability.
The midsole feature the single layer of midsole cushioning, the Next Generation Resalyte, that is maximized for more softness and comfort and protection as well. Skechers applied the Ultra-class design of midsole to equip the shoe for ultra-marathon races.
A drainage system is also added into the midsole, with ports on both side to fully drain the shoe when running on watery or wet grounds.
The upper features reainforced designs. The breathable and lightweight mesh and synthetic materials are also durable to withstand different weather. The overlays are 3D printed, keeping them lightweight and stable. Reflective detailing is also included in its outer appearance, while the inner part is designed with molded heel counter, inner support strap, and soft foot bed for a more comfortable and stable platform.
