Weight: 8.2 oz (size 9)

Stack Height: Heel (21mm), Forefoot (14mm)

Available Widths: D=Medium

How It Fits (based on width D) 

  • Sizing: Standard running shoe length
  • Heel: Medium
  • Mid-foot: Medium to low volume
  • Forefoot: Medium
  • Toe-Box Height: Low
  • Arch Structure: Medium
  • Shoe Shape: Curved

MIDSOLE

  • Phylon is a full-length midsole foam that delivers lightweight, resilient cushioning.
  • Flex grooves within the midsole allow for natural motion in multiple directions.

OUTSOLE

  • Hexagonal Flex Pattern offers six directions of motion to promote flexibility and natural foot movement.
  • Beveled Heel consists of a curved outer heel, to encourage midfoot and forefoot striking.
  • Waffle Lugs built into the Phylon midsole compress on impact for increased cushioning.
  • BRS 1000 carbon rubber provides durable traction.

UPPER

  • Free-specific mesh has a stitch-free design for breathable, barefoot comfort.
  • Dynamic Flywire provides necessary support and unmatched fit while reducing the shoes overall weight.
  • Dynamic Fit uses a supportive inner sleeve that wraps under the arch and around the midfoot for increased arch support and an adaptive fit.

Comments: The feel of these shoes does not reconcile with the description of a "natural" running experience. With the 8mm drop and rear cushioning, they are more fitted for a heel striker. As a mid-foot striker, they feel like an odd combination of a true barefoot shoe but with way too much drop. On the plus side, I like the tongue and lacing design, and they are light and comfortable for everyday/walking/gym. I just can't see any use for them as a serious running shoe.
