Delivers increased grip on flat surfaces

With a one-piece, full-length textured rubber, the outsole of the Palani SPT delivers an increased grip.

The external part of the platform also employs Efficient Traction, which is the brand’s signature concept that lets runners feel secure and comfortable, thanks to an accurate profile that rolls efficiently on flat surfaces and finds traction on gravel and smooth trails.

The shoe also uses eRide Flow, which features a strategic flex pattern to guide the foot through the gait cycle, ensuring an even and capable stride.

Palani SPT offer durability and responsiveness

The AeroFoam Infinity technology makes use of an injected material that equips the midsole with durability and responsiveness, especially for the road and hard-pack trails. It also allows for additional cushioning that serves as protection on hard surfaces.

The AeroFoam Infinity protects the body from the rigors of extended training runs with its shock-absorbing property, but not at the expense of the efficiency of the eRide geometry.

The eRide is a rockered midsole structure that promotes an energized and fast running style, as it creates a stable mid-stance and converts impact energy into propelling motion. It works with the body to improve a dynamic running position regardless of running gait.

Secures the foot in place

With a two-tone mesh upper, there is a comfortable and secure sensation supplied to the foot. The internal lining is also made of open-weave mesh to guarantee air circulation.

A quarter support cage is present to create a supportive package by securing the midfoot in place. An injection-molded heel counter wraps around the heel to create a stable platform.

Scott Palani SPT provides a snug and stable fit

A no-sew toe guard is installed to protect the toes from injuries; it is lightweight, and it does not add to the weight of the shoe. There is a form-fitting protective tongue to keep the midfoot in place without restricting movement.
