Smooth-riding shoes, soft enough for high-mileage training, yet firm enough for moderate stability. The cushioning tailors itself to your specific weight, gait, and running environment with gel-like midsoles. Their highly viscous non-Newtonian fluid remains flexible under low impact, and stiffens under high impact to provide support.
- Uppers are microfibre combined with synthetic overlays to form integral foot support structures.
- Element mesh and linings provide moisture management.
- Internal support saddles for a precise, secure fit.
- Full length sockliners provide durable cushioning layers.
- Progressive Diagonal Rollbars create a smoother transition from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase.
- Shank-like DRB Accel devices enhance midfoot support while letting heels and forefeet retain independent movement.
- Segmented heel Crash Pads cushion and stabilize your lay-downs for smooth transitions.
- Outsoles are HPR Plus for durability.
- Multidirectional grooves promote toe-off transition for longer, increased flexibility.

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 footwear body is constructed from this material.
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.
