Light, supportive, and almost as comfortable as being barefoot, these cross-trainers are all about freedom. They work with your foot's natural movement using diagonal flex grooves for fluid side-to-side support during high-intensity interval training. An inner sleeve provides a glove-like feel around your foot to add stability for plyometric and strength training.
- Mesh zones in the uppers use a tighter and looser weave to give you support, flex, and venting.
- Neoprene-inspired inner sleeves provide structural support for multidirectional movement – so bring on the ice-skater intervals.
- Flywire technology supports from the ground up, with the cords originating in the sole. Customizable through the laces, they hug your arch for a dynamic, supportive fit.
- Heel loop with long tongue makes for easy on and off.
- Flex grooves provide barefoot-like flexibility and multi-lateral support.

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.
