Updates to the HOVR Apex 2

  • Up-top, more TPU printed overlays are employed in the sides of the shoe. These overlays run from the midsole all the way to the eyelets.
  • Compared to the original's midsole construction of the use of compression mesh Energy Web to encase the HOVR technology, this time the HOVR Apex 2's is encased in firmer EVA midsole.
