Show Description

Premium road shoes with pillowy softness to put in the miles. Their gel-like DNA midsoles incorporate a highly viscous non-Newtonian fluid which remains flexible under low impacts, and stiffens under higher impacts. So the cushioning adapts to your specific weight, gait, and running environment.

  • 3D fit print process reduces decrease weight and hot spots in the uppers without losing structure.
  • Uppers are microfibre combined with synthetic overlays to form integral foot support structures.
  • Element mesh and linings provide moisture management.
  • Full length sockliners provide durable cushioning.
  • Rounded heels align your joints for energy return and reduced internal stress.
  • Durable, energy-efficient insole boards add cushioning and flexibility.
  • Omega flex grooves in the rear and forefoot increase midsole flexibility.
  • Universal sprung platforms enhance flexibility and cushioning.
  • Ideal pressure zones in the outsoles disperse pressure evenly from heel to toe for fewer hotspots and smoother transitions.
  • Outsoles are high-performance rubber with multi-directional grooves for a smooth toe-off and good flexibility.

Ideal for Road running

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.

Upper material Synthetic
Closure Lace-up
Heel-to-toe cushioning

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.
