It has the same heel-to-toe drop of the Kayano, but it's lighter and less supportive and brings your foot closer to the ground.
This is a very versatile shoe and can be used for the running enthusiast or the casual walker.
The dual material is an interesting experiment, good for mild over-pronators who want a light shoe, could use improvement.
I’ve run a bunch of distances in these new shoes ranging from 3 miles to 9 miles, and I still love them as much as when I first tried them on.
