Feed your need for speed. These shoes have a suprisingly light ride and are as snappy as they look. With sleek no-sew uppers and Abzorb and REVlite through the midsoles, they offer superb running comfort and a plush-feeling ride.

- Lightweight Revlite foam midsole offers a neutral, well cushioned, but durable ride.
- Heels use Abzorb® foam (polyolefin elastomer and isoprene rubber) strobel board under footbed.
- Outsoles are low-profile blown rubber for grip combined with lightweight cushioning.

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.
