CUSHIONING

  • Rearfoot DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.
  • Forefoot DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.
MIDSOLE
  • BioMoGo full-length midsole offers resilient cushioning and is made of environment-friendly, biodegradable materials.
  • Cush Pod Configuration is a cushioned midsole/outsole design that sets the foot up for an efficient, balanced heel-to-toe transition.
  • Caterpillar Crash Pad is a segmented crash pad that flexes with the foot, offering customized cushioning and stability for a smooth heel-to-toe transition.
  • Omega Flex Grooves enhance midsole flexibility without compromising cushioning.
UPPER
  • Gore-Tex Mesh throughout the upper and is waterproof and yet breathable for a dry, comfortable shoe environment.
  • Element Mesh is a moisture-managing, breathable mesh upper.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically located to provide a snug, secure fit.
  • Element Linings underneath the upper aid in moisture transfer and comfort.
  • Profile Sockliner made of BioMoGo foam provides contoured support and cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length Cushsole S-257, for enhanced cushioning and flexibility and a soft underfoot feel.
OUTSOLE
  • HPR Plus is a high abrasion-resistant rubber located in the heel for durable traction.
  • Blown Rubber in the forefoot offers durability, responsiveness and flexibility.
  • Cush Pod Configuration is a cushioned midsole/outsole design that sets the foot up for an efficient, balanced heel-to-toe transition.

Comments: The Definitive winter running shoe. Am averaging 30 mi./wk in an especially cold start to winter where we have seen -5* temps. Wind chill extremes,freezing rain,4-6"of snow, and some slush. I have returned from every run with warm and dry feet. I won't comment on the Ghost as it is already known to be arguably the best neutral shoe out there and I concur.

Comments: A vastly improved update from the Ghost 5. Better cushioning in the forefoot plus a fantastic heel-to-toe transition. Have taken two 6 mile runs and I'm very impressed with the overall softer cushioning without it feeling mushy. Now if the durability (wear) is decent it's definitely a huge winner for me!

Comments: These shoes are great. Had them for a couple weeks now. They're very cushioned and great for those longer runs. On the downside, my feet get hot really quick and the shoes don't seem to circulate air very well. It's like a sauna for my foot. But other than that, they're one of my favorite shoes.
