Fantastic. Spectacular. All words rolled into one.
They might not be the lightest shoe on the market but for getting the long winter miles in, or for the heavier runner to use for longer distance races, I can’t think of a better pair of shoes to run in.
Updates to Zoot Diego
- The Zoot Diego features the innovative midsole that uses the brand’s ZVA and Zbound+ technology that gives maximum cushioning. It efficiently absorbs shock during impact and releases energy during toe-off.
- This Zoot running shoe also features the Progressive Forward Roll that guides the foot in every transition. This encourages a smooth heel-to-toe transition without giving too much effort.
Zoot Diego size and fit
The Diego is available in standard running shoe length. The midfoot, heel and forefoot are in standard measurements. The shoe is available in standard running shoe widths as well. It comfortably accommodates runners with normal foot shape and measurement.
The outsole of the Diego uses the Zoot Carbon Rubber and Zoot Blown Rubber that gives reliable traction on the road and added durability on high wear areas. It also gives added cushioning. This outsole configuration is relatively similar to the Zoot Makai and Zoot Solana 2.
The midsole features the Z-Bound+ technology that is strategically placed in the entire midsole to deliver maximum cushioning. This works together with the brand’s injected ZVA that absorbs shock efficiently and delivers powerful toe-off.
The upper of the Zoot Diego has an open mesh coverage that delivers lightweight breathability. The BareFit technology offers seamless, sock-like fit that delivers added comfort and reduces the risk of blisters and irritation. The Dri-Lex fabric reduces moisture and keeps the foot odor-free.
