361 Degrees Feisu: It screams solid
The outsole of this road running shoe is made up of carbon rubber. It is the same material that vehicle tires are made of. It has a highly durable characteristic which doesn’t make it flexible.
To make way for flexibility, the material was not designed to run the shoe’s full length. Instead, it was strategically placed on certain areas to provide enough traction and prevent signs of early wear and tear.
Other areas underneath the shoe are covered with blown rubber. This material is not as tough as carbon rubber. However, each blown rubber pod still provides enough traction and shock dispersion during runs.
The tread pattern is composed of shapes and linear flex grooves. The shapes also referred to as pods, are all similar in size with a uniform amount of spacing in between them. Their contact areas have dotted depressions that work together with other features to provide the shoe with grip. The lines, on the other hand, make the shoe permissible to bending and flexing.
Lite EVA is the main material the midsole is made of. Instead of the usual EVA (Ethylene-vinyl Acetate), the lite version was used to reduce the weight of the shoe, as well as supply the runner with enough responsiveness during runs.
Say goodbye to sweaty feet with the 361 Degrees Feisu
The upper is made up of Air Mesh. The material is breathable, awarding the shoe with proper ventilation. The result is a cool, dry, and comfortable in-shoe feeling. Air Mesh is also lightweight, not adding to the weight of the shoe.
Seamless overlays were added to reinforce the Air Mesh material. From both sides of the shoe, all the way to the heel, these overlays deliver minimal support by acting as a wrap to the foot. They were made seamless so that the risk for irritation is lessened.
From within, a technology called Fitz-Rite can be found. It is concentrated on the midfoot. It’s a structure that acts as a webbing, holding the middle in place and preventing it from moving side to side while the runner is in motion
The 361 Degrees Feisu is made to last
Some areas on the upper were fortified with the addition of Micro Fiber Suede. More specifically, the base of the shoelaces where the lace holes are, and the toe cap have the material on them. It improves the durability of these areas, and they act as accents, giving the shoe a retro look.
