And because of its high-grade outsole, the shoe uses less rubber on its bottom to produce a much lighter shoe overall that does not compromise on performance.
The DC Heathrow SE is a more premium iteration of the Heathrow. The Heathrow SE contains many of the elements of the Heathrow but is upgraded with an OrthoLite footbed for an even more cushioned feel.
