This is way more comfortable, way softer underfoot. Super, super nice. Very plush. Definitely fits in the premium cushion category.
When you run in these, they are amazing in terms of ride quality. Very, very cushy but not overly soft.
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.
This shoe is best suited for long runs and high mileage training. It is not suited for tempo and speed runs.
