INTRODUCTION

The 870 v2 is a moderate feature, moderate support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

CUSHIONING

  • ABZORB is a full-length, top-of-the-line midsole foam for great durability and improved cushioning.
MIDSOLE
  • RevLite is an innovative foam compound that provides lightweight, responsive cushioning. 
  • Internal Shank is a thermoplastic unit in the midsole that provides torsional rigidity.
  • Medial Post consists of higher density foam in the midfoot that works to correct over pronation.
UPPER
  • Open Mesh covers the majority of the upper for lightweight breathability.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically placed to wrap the foot for a secure fit.
  • Traditional Sockliner provides additional underfoot cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length ABZORB foam, for enhanced cushioning and a soft underfoot feel.
OUTSOLE
  • Blown rubber in the forefoot increases cushioning and responsiveness.
  • Ndurance is a highly durable carbon rubber located in the heel and the lateral side of the outsole.

LAST

  • PL-1 Natural is a running-specific last with a standard heel and forefoot width and a standard toe-box height. This last is built to closely follow the natural shape of the human foot.

Comments: I'm a heel striker with a nagging hamstring problem.  I decided to scale down a bit and so far I
am LOVING this shoe.  I put 11 miles on them today and my hamstring isn't bothering me...infact, I feel great.  I'm actually overjoyed.  I think this shoe has a good medium arch support, and is super light weight.
