Burst out of the starting blocks (or the block on which you live) in breathable, lightweight runners. Soft, single-layered knit upper feels like a second skin, and the updated sipped midsole and outsole create a shoe that is more flexible than the previous version.
- Stretch-knit upper is made with spandex for natural movement.
- Bootie construction for a snug and seamless fit.
- Low-profile cushioning for a more barefoot feel.
- Heel-to-toe grooves on midsole and outsole flex with your foot.
- EVA outsole with rubber pods keep traction during toe-off and heel strike.

'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|
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.
|20 - 14mm|
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.
