Long-lasting protection from abrasion

ADIWEAR is an outsole technology that uses a high quality rubber material to protect the shoe from the abrasive nature of the roads. The same outsole material is used in the Duramo 9, and it ensures the longevity and efficacy of the midsole unit, protecting it from wear and tear. It is also responsible for traction, thus allowing the runner to be more in control of the surfaces.

Flex grooves are cut in the sole unit of this running shoe. They make sure to allow the platform to move along with the natural motions of the foot, preventing stiffness or rigidity from affecting the performance of the wearer.

Heavy-duty midsole foam in the Duramo 6

The ADIPRENE+ is a full-length midsole material that is responsible for the cushioning the foot gets when running. It is able to absorb impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle. It can carry the weight of the wearer, not breaking down easily in the process.

Breathable and flexible Air Mesh upper

Additional snugness to the coverage is provided by the inclusion of overlays that are stitched onto the upper unit. Connected to the lacing system, these overlays wrap around the foot as tightly or as loosely, depending on the runner’s preferences.
