Transitional minimalist shoes for off-road runners who like to have their cake and eat it too. This shoe delivers comfortable cushioning, but still lets you maintain contact with the terrain, so you can go the distance while enjoying the full experience of the trail.
- Uppers are synthetic mesh with a debris-free construction.
- Midsoles are an innovative foam compound that provides the same responsiveness and durability of foams 30% heavier. The result is a lightweight ride with excellent underfoot cushioning and stability.
- Flexible protective layer blunts impact from rocks and shocks by dispersing energy.
- Outsoles are low-profile, durable Vibram®.
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.
|14 - 10mm|
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.
