Upper: Nexkin mesh upper improves airflow to keep your feet cool and comfortable. At least 20% of the shoe's main upper material includes recycled materials. Reflective details improve visibility in low-light situations.
Midsole: FF BLAST™ technology provides shock absorption and a responsive rebound. Rearfoot and forefoot GEL™ cushioning protects from impact and creates softer landings at footstrike. FF BLAST™ PLUS adds lightweight impact absorption and durability. OrthoLite™ sockliner provides soft, step-in comfort. The sockliner is made with a dyeing process that reduces water usage by approximately 33% and carbon emissions by 45% compared to conventional methods.
Outsole: AHARPLUS™ rubber improves durability in high-wear areas. Strategic outsole engineering adds grip and durability.
