The look of its laces quickly catches one’s eye. Its unique off-center lacing complements the anatomical curve of a runner’s feet for a truer, comfortable fit. This results in less discomfort and irritation common with more conventional running shoes.

Much of the weight is concentrated on the heel with the forefoot having a slightly less dense cushioning material. This was specifically designed for a more cushioned running motion. It is also noteworthy to point out that the women’s models come with 3 millimeters of additional height to help relieve Achilles tension which is prevalent among female runners.

The newly revised midsole design; a midsole stabilizer, allows for controlled midsole deformation resulting in a more efficient foot function during strides. Supporting the stabilizer is a dual density midsole system for maximum stability and added cushioning.

Runners who suffer from moderate to excessive sweating of the feet are also sure to benefit from the unique uppers and patented Comfordry sockliners with cushioning and microbe fighting properties. These help provide a cooler and drier environment for one’s feet. As a bonus, the much of the uppers and overlays were crafted from recycled, synthetic materials.
