The Ricochet LE has a standard running shoe length, just like the Brooks Launch 6. The knit upper provides a more customized fit. It has a medium measurement in the forefoot, heel and midfoot. The men’s and women’s versions of this running shoe are available in standard medium width.
In the outsole of the Ricochet LE is a rubber material that gives the shoe durability and traction. The outsole has an arrow tread pattern. The outsole design aims to direct the pressure towards the forefoot, which enhances heel-to-toe transition. It helps runners move quickly without losing too much energy.
