Lightweight training shoes to get you from your front door to the trail and back again. Best for short to middle distances, they offer traction, support and secure foot placements to promote a free, fluid running style.
- Sensiflex construction combines synthetic stretch air mesh with stretch forefoot overlays to provide a balance of freedom, secure fit, and abrasion protection.
- Tongue overlays keep trail debris out of your shoes.
- Quick-lace system has low friction eyelets and a tongue lace pocket.
- Synthetic toe caps offer protection against roots and rocks.
- Ortholite foam footbeds.
- Midsoles are lightweight moulded EVA, to provide full-length cushioning and support.
- Oversized elastomer tendon under the midfoot eases heel-to-toe transition, for a smooth running technique.
- Contragrip® rubber provides lightweight, durable traction in the forefoot and midfoot zones with abrasion-rubber in the heel and medial forefoot strike zone.
- Neutral platform.
Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
|21 - 10 mm|
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
