  • The enhanced midsole made the shoe’s heel firmer and the midfoot area softer compared to its previous versions. It is an extreme shock absorption and energy return technology that ensures less impact and enhanced bounce back. 
  • 360° COMFORT is incorporated in this shoe in the form of bike chamois-inspired ankle collar locks in the heel section for an ultra-plush feel. It also provides a more secure locked-in fit. 
  • The lightweight breathability is offered by the enhanced engineered mesh coverage. The upper unit also uses 360-degree reflectivity for night runs.
