Rankings

  • The upper is made up of the Ultraknit textile which is seamless, flexible and breathable. This material easily moves together with the foot, eliminating the feeling of restriction. Because of the spaces between the knitted thread, air easily passes through, keeping the foot cool and dry.
  • A 3D foam midsole has been incorporated as the shoe’s platform. It was designed with footprint mapping, so runners can feel that the cushioning adapts to every movement and impact felt on the foot.
  • The lugs on the outsole are also adaptive, similar to the midsole. The bottom can easily flex, bend, and expand with the foot’s natural movement. This benefit allows the runner to feel more comfortable and confident with every stride.

The Print Run ULTK is available in standard running shoe sizes. Those interested to get their pair will be able to use their usual shoe size preference to get the right fit. As for the width, it is also available in the standard B – medium and D – medium for women and men’s versions respectively.

On the outsole is a carbon rubber rim under the toe and heel. Carbon rubber is a tough material that’s commonly used on running shoe soles because of its durability and its traction. On the Print Run ULTK, this material doesn’t cover the entire bottom of the shoe; however, the rubber was placed strategically on key areas, so traction is improved.

The tread is composed of adaptive lugs that move together with the foot. This flexibility is made possible because of the deep indentions and flex lines found on and in between the lugs. This pattern also helps improve the grip on most surfaces, allowing the runner to feel balanced with every step.

The midsole is a 3D foam designed with footprint mapping for better adaptation to movement and for a more precise kind of cushioning. It complements the lugs on the outsole which also deliver the same adaptive benefits, making the runner feel unrestricted throughout runs.

As the name suggests, the upper is made of a textile called Ultraknit. This material is highly breathable and gives an almost seamless feel to the upper. Just like the other features of the shoe, it also permits the optimal and natural movement of the foot because of its adaptable characteristics.

On the midfoot area, the knitting structure was made different to deliver better yet minimal support to this part of the foot. This design works together with the standard lacing system to tighten the fit on the midfoot for a more secure feel.
