When we run, our feet take a beating, experiencing impact of two to three times our body weight. The outer heel absorbs most of this impact before weight is distributed across the rest of the foot. Hard surfaces such as pavement increase the stress put on the body, so cushioning is crucial in running shoes, especially in the heel.
Featuring the most advanced technology, design and colours, lightweight running shoes employ mesh to keep perspiring feet cool and dry. With a flexible forefoot enabling a strong thrust during toe-off to propel the runner forward, shoes feature flex grooves in the forefoot and a higher toe spring.
