The Limited Edition model of the Brooks Ricochet 2 running shoe offers a design that focuses on enhanced in-shoe security and sturdiness. Though similarly a slip-on product with a one-piece collar, this iteration features stitched-on side panels to potentially heighten the level of security and durability that it brings.
The Brooks Ricochet 2 LE is constructed to be true to size. Runners who appreciate an in-shoe feel that is accommodating can get it because it adheres to the standard sizing schemes. However, there have been reports about a wobbly in-shoe experience. So, testing the shoe before purchase and/or studying other users’ reactions about the sizing aspect can alleviate any concerns.
Durable rubber is used for the external pad of the Brooks Ricochet 2 LE. This compound is designed to protect the bottom portion of the midsole foam from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also provides natural traction as it is grippy.
The tread-pattern of this product’s outsole is an arrow-point, which means that the rubber is poised to make the foot propel itself forward with speed and ease.
Flex grooves permit the underfoot platform to bend in conjunction with the wearer’s foot as it transitions through the gait cycle. The forefoot lift benefits the most from this design as it highly involves the bending of the toe joints and tendons.
A topsole made of DNA AMP offers steady and consistent support throughout the running session. Its surface is contoured to buttress the curves of the underfoot, particularly the arch.
BioMoGo DNA is a full-length foam that serves as the base of the whole cushioning system. This layer receives the brunt of the impact shock generated by the foot-strike while also putting more volume to the platform itself. Shoe series that feature the BioMoGo DNA tech include the highly revered Brooks Cascadia and the Brooks Ghost.
Fit Knit is a textile that has a stretchy construction. The job of this material is to hug the foot and give a perception of security and form-welcoming comfort.
Stitched-on panels made of suede are meant to heighten durability and in-shoe support.
A one-piece opening aims to seal the topmost portion of the foot, averting accidental shoe removals and infiltration of road debris.
