These sneakers have traction points located at the front of the foot which will help ensure that you are able to keep a grip on a plethora of surfaces. The heels of the shoes are flat to help keep your feet steady while you are doing weight training or squats. The pattern on the heels kind of looks like little suction cups which will help give you a little more stability on the back of your feet.
You are going to get much more than a springy feeling when you are wearing these shoes. You are also going to get the benefit of having a raised medial and lateral side to help give you some extra stability when you are moving from side to side. Customers praise the great feeling midsole that they get with these shoes.
The knit mesh materials that make up the uppers allow for a decent amount of ventilation so you can ensure that your feet are going to stay cool and dry while you are working out. The ability for the air to flow into the shoes makes sure that your feet stay cool while also helping the sweat from your feet evaporate quickly to keep them dry and healthy.
Additionally, the lacing system and synthetic overlays work together to make sure that your feet are going to stay locked into place. You will not have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside of your shoes, or possibly falling out of them all together. You are going to get a secure and locked in feel.
Just because these sneakers are considered to be a cross training shoe does not mean that you are limited to the gym or the track when you are wearing them. Many customers opt to wear these as a casual everyday pair of sneakers as well. They are super comfortable which makes them a great option for those who are on their feet all day for work. No matter if you are at the gym or just hanging out these shoes are going to be a great addition to your sneaker collection.
These sneakers are designed to ensure they are not going to wear out anytime soon. They are going to be able to take the repeated beating of your foot falls day after day, mile after mile. The rubber sole extends up and over your toes to not only protect your toes but to also help increase the durability of the uppers in that area. The midsole is also designed to take a lot, you can walk on these shoes repeatedly and not have to worry about the padding wearing down and flattening out. You will be able to keep that spring in your step.
These sneakers are meant to be snug and sock-like on your feet. You do not want them to be too loose otherwise you will lose some of the supportive features of them. Additionally, you are not going to want them to be too tight as they can cause blisters and soreness if they are.
