Rich Froning talks about what happened at North America East
The lightweight air mesh upper construction ensures stability, flexibility and breathability during any workout, making it a reliable choice for athletes seeking optimal performance.
The 4mm heel-to-toe drop, wide toe box, and a dual density foam footbed provide improved toe splay for better comfort, stability at the heel for heavy lifting and softer cushioning at the forefront for running and jumping.
