With no drop from the ball of your foot to the heel, these shoes ease you into the barefoot experience. They have a uniform 4mm of cushioning in the forefoot and a flexible sole that allows natural foot movement. Wear them for your regualr training runs or cross-training sessions.
- Uppers are synthetic leather and breathable air mesh.
- Integrated microfibre footbeds covers are treated with Aegis® antimicrobial solution.
- Midsoles have an EVA footframe for stability and support. 7mm total stack height.
- Outsoles are Vibram® Chrysalis rubber for flexible grip.
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.
|4 - 4mm|
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.
