This neutral trainer offers protective cushioning to guard you from the hard ground, while a full contact blown rubber outsole provides lasting durability and a smooth transition from heel to toe. This shoe offers a flat base that will accommodate most orthotics.

Customer Reviews

Comments: excellent arch support for flat wide (duck) feet, and somehow this shoe seems to feel more and more cushioned as the miles pile up, though never so much so that it loses its' responsiveness. Indeed, I find these to provide a surprisingly lively springy ride, with good road feel also, and nice inherent stability due to it's relatively lower and wider platform. Much more runnable than the Dyad, which is slightly more cushioned, but also higher, heavier, and bulkier, which makes it a bit clumsy-feeling compared to the 840V2.
