  • 83 / 100 | Rob Andro

    This is way more comfortable, way softer underfoot. Super, super nice. Very plush. Definitely fits in the premium cushion category.

  • 83 / 100 | Standford Bear

    When you run in these, they are amazing in terms of ride quality. Very, very cushy but not overly soft.

  • 83 / 100 | Runner's World

    Like a concept car, the Quantum 360 is designed to draw attention, with its full perimeter of visible Gel cushioning units. The surprise is that it runs well, too.

  • 82 / 100 | Sportskeeda

    This shoe is best suited for long runs and high mileage training. It is not suited for tempo and speed runs.
