  • Multi-density midsole: Typically, a different color is used to emphasize this feature.

  • Thermoplastic medial post. Plastic is used to reinforce the medial portion of midsole.

  • Rigid heel counter.

  • Elevated medial insole under arch (left), compared with a flat insole (right).

  • Supportive tensioned medial upper. Material is used to reinforce medial upper in order to limit medial foot movement.

  • Medial flare. Medial tip of midsole extends beyond footbed.


Longitudinal Flexibility


Very high resistance to longitudinal bending (longitudinal deformation is possible, but anterior and posterior parts of the shoe form a maximum angle of 45 degrees)

Torsional Flexibility


Extreme resistance to torsion (torsional forces don't significantly change the orientation of the anterior part of the shoe relative to the posterior part)
