This shoe is incredible. I found it to be extremely comfortable and had such a short break-in period for me. After starting out with a couple of shorter runs, I jumped up to some 7 and 8 mile runs with no problem. Next thing I knew, I was wearing them for a half marathon distance training run. No issues, all comfort. Solid landing structure. Comfortable fit. Even wearing them on a treadmill (which several times is cause for pain for me with some shoes) left me feeling great with zero stress on the bottom of my feet.
So, how did they do it?
First, the updated midsole is now 100% DNA LOFT cushioning that remains durable and doesn’t feel overly squishy. Hence, when I’m hitting the pavement or that hard surfaced treadmill, I can’t even notice because my foot feels great!
Second, that new midsole combines with the Segmented Crash Pad work together to provide an easier flow from landing to toe-off meaning no matter how your foot strikes the ground, the transition provides smooth comfort.
Third, the improved fit from the 3D Fit Print upper adjusts comfortably to your foot providing a snug fit.
