For those looking for a Japanese inspired protective lightweight racer with a little more drop and a wonderful fit, take a look at the 361 Feisu. This is a fantastic shoe for distance races like the marathon and half marathon but is light enough to be used for shorter workouts/races. A snug heel and a slightly wider forefoot make for a comfortable fit that combined with a great ride make for a shoe that will keep you going for miles.
Updates to 361 Degrees Feisu
- On the 361 Degrees Feisu is Lite EVA. This foam delivers sufficient cushioning to the midsole. It may not be plush, but the amount of protection and responsiveness it delivers is enough for runners to feel confident during an energetic run.
- The upper is made of Microfiber Suede and Air Mesh. The combination of these two textiles allows the upper to be durable, flexible and well-ventilated. The Microfiber Suede also serves as a cool accent, affording the shoe a retro look.
- A technology called Fitz-Rite holds the foot in place as the runner is in motion. It acts as a cage that internally and externally secures the foot to the platform. Although the support this technology provides is not significant, it still does its job of minimally stabilizing the midfoot.
361 Degrees Feisu size and fit
The 361 Degrees Feisu is available in standard running shoe measurements. Those who wish to get their pair can make use of the length measurements they are most comfortable with. As for the width, it comes in D – medium and B – medium for male and female runners respectively.
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.
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.
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.
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.
