Description

Show Description

For long distance runners, these Boost™ tech shoes are designed to return energy so there's a little pick-up left in your feet for the final 5k. Small capsules in the midsole foam provide energy return as your foot strikes and releases the ground. They don't feel soft, but quick, bouncy and fun.

  • Primeknit material expands with your foot to help reduce irritation, while the Sockfit upper provides a snug, supportive fit.
  • Dual torsion midfoot smoothes transitions from midfoot to forefoot push-off.
  • Boost™ midsole stays soft and bouncy for higher energy return than any other running foam, and retains cushioning across a wide temperature range.
  • Outsoles are Continental rubber for sure-footed traction even on wet pavement.

Ideal for Road running
Feel

'Minimal and natural' shoes offer low drop, lots of flex, and minimal cushioning. Most running shoes are 'Light and responsive' with medium cushioning and good energy return. 'Cushioned and floaty' shoes have maximum cushioning.

Light and responsive
Stability

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.

Neutral
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.

29-19mm
Drop

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.

10mm
Waterproof

Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
