Some call it the best of both worlds, you'll likely just call it comfortable. A 12mm drop provides structure to your mechanics, while the evolved Flywire construction is lightweight from the ground up. Knitted-in cords attach the footbed to the body of the shoe, cinch them to custom fit your arch and midfoot and keep your shoes locked in place.
- Lightweight polyester mesh uppers are highly breathable.
- Adjustable cord system maximizes support and minimizes weight by supporting the foot with a network of cords. Cinch these cords via the eyelets, and adjust the tension to suit.
- Notched inner sockliners hug your feet like slippers.
- Padded collars keep you comfortable, and keep the heels from slipping.
- Dynamic midsole support system provides stability without rigidity.
- Floating heel clip moves with your foot, moderating excessive foot movement.
- Outsoles are earth-pleasing waffle rubber with durable carbon rubber heels to minimize wear and tear and provide multi-surface traction.
- Natural motion treads enhances flexibility to create a smoother ride.
- Reflective heel panel for exceptional visibility.

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.
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.
