Allows toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more comfort, speed and stability.
Grid-like flex grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex where it needs to for more speed and improved performance.
Energy-return compound sits directly under the foot to reduce ground impact and add a spring to each step.
Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage natural, low-impact running form throughout your run.
Offers flexible protection from the rugged terrain by deflecting rocks into the midsole for a smooth, stable ride.
This unique trail outsole positions canted lugs directly below the foot metatarsals and 'claws' near the front of the shoe for incredible traction in any trail condition.
The hook-and-loop tap conveniently attaches running gaiters without straps below the outsole - preventing debris from building up beneath the shoe.
