- The 361 Degrees Kroozer is a reliable running shoe that offers a balance of style and performance. The midsole unit features the QU!K Comfort technology, which is made out of a blend of EVA rubber. This material offers amazing cushioning and support to the runner. 

- The QU!K Flex 4foot technology in the outsole creates a balanced toe-off and offers excellent traction in both wet and dry surfaces. 

- A piece of breathable synthetic fabric is incorporated into this running shoe, giving the user an easy walking or running experience. 

The manufacturer of the 361 Degrees Kroozer uses the traditional lacing system for a snugger fit. The shoe is available in a number of size options for both men and women versions. Runners of varying foot volumes are welcome to purchase a pair in their usual sizing expectations. However, it should be noted that some reviewers felt that the shoe is a bit narrow so testing the shoe first before purchasing is a good thing to do to ensure the perfect fit. 

A carbon blown rubber material is featured in the outsole unit of the 361 Degrees Kroozer. The carbon rubber outsole possessed maximum abrasion and traction properties. It is softer, lighter and more flexible compared to a tradition rubber material. 

Several New Balance running shoes like the New Balance 890 v6 also use the blown rubber material in their outsoles to ensure durability. 

The QU!K Flex 4foot technology, the flex grooves,  in the outsole are positioned to imitate the movement of the foot, providing a natural and balanced toe-off. It also enhances ground contact for better traction and acceleration. 

 

The QU!KFOAM™ midsole technology is responsible for providing quality cushioning and support. This midsole is composed of EVA rubber material, which is flexible and tear-and-slip resistant.  It helps maintain a high level of energy return and comfort throughout the life of the shoe. Another shoe that utilizes the EVA rubber is the Hoka One One Speedgoat 3.

The midsole section of the 361 Degrees Kroozer uses a synthetic fabric that delivers amazing moisture management. The breathable mesh upper also offers excellent protection and easy running experience. 

The mesh overlays and padded tongue and collar, as well as the lacing system also enhances the overall feature of the shoe.
