Dual-density midsole for optimal cushioning

A dual-layer Charged Cushioning makes up the midsole of the Highlight Delta 2. It comprises a compression-molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) that excels in responding. The performance of the midsole is comparable to the Ravenna 10 running shoe from Brooks.

The two layers consist of a soft upper foam that takes the impact from the strike, and beneath it is a firm-level that enhances the responsiveness. Both levels work together by bringing optimal cushioning and energy return, resulting in a smooth and steady ride for the runner

The sock liner is also made of Charged Cushioning foam. It follows the shape of the foot, thus giving a personalized fit.

Comfort and strength from Threadborne

The Highlight Delta 2 features a Threadborne knit upper, which is a breathable material that offers a snug, wraparound fit. This element ensures comfort and delivers directional strength.

The upper has a mid-cut ankle collar with a ribbed finish, promoting a cleatie-like fit for enhanced support and protection. To provide even more support, the shoe has a lacing system that makes use of deeply cut eyelets that move freely with the foot.
