This road running shoe, the Xero Shoes HFS, is strategically built for those who have neutral foot mechanisms. It utilizes a new breathable and lightweight mesh upper. The primary purpose of this is to provide a comfortable and snug fit.
Along with the mesh upper is the silky moisture-wicking lining. The lining is made of 37.5 material that keeps the foot cool and dry throughout the running session.
Used in making the shoe is the new tire tread-inspired sole. The goal of this material is to deliver better ground contact during the activity.
With the utilization of the mesh upper, a snugger and comfortable fit is experienced by the user. The mesh upper works well with the removable insole that ensures a customized and individualized fit.
When compared to the Asics GT 2000 7, which uses the Asics High Abrasion Rubber, the 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole is integrated into the Xero Shoes HFS. This component of the shoe aims to provide the perfect blend of ground feedback and protection during the running session. This is essential in signaling the brain to move the body ideally and optimally.
The "XERO-drop" design is utilized in crafting the shoe. This design is described as a non-elevated heel that encourages proper posture. This feature of the shoe is also made low to the ground to provide agility and balance. The Xero Shoes HFS is built to let the foot bend, flex, and move in a more natural motion. In comparison to the Brooks Pureflow 7, it uses the rounded heel design that mimics the shape of the foot.
Used in the running shoe is the 2mm removable insole. The primary purpose of this is to provide the user with a close-to-barefoot running experience.
Utilized in the running shoe is the Huarache-inspired design. This is described as an adjustable midfoot strap and instep that are not just visually-appealing and eye-catching but also very functional. The Huarache-inspired design is meant to provide a more comfortable and snugger fit.
Utilized in the upper area is the wide toe box. Zero Shoes added this feature to let the toes function and spread naturally during the running activity.
