361 have been around for a while and have struggled to obtain a foothold in a crowded market but they make very good shoes. The Squire 4 is well cushioned and has a very nice engineered mesh upper. Owned by a could of ex Asics guys, they ride like an Asics shoe. Worth a look.
Aiming to compete better in the premium cushioning segment of the market, the latest version of the brands range topping neutral cushioned shoe sees improvements to its midsole.
A new QU!CKSPRING+ material has been inserted into the rear of the shoe for improved cushioning on impact. Along with the QU!CKFOAM forefoot it provides a balance feel capable of high mileage requirements. The shoe also features a carbon fibre plate, here to provide midfoot stability.
A new upper has the premium touch and with integrated lacing straps to support the midfoot provides a firm but very comfortable hold around the foot.
The usual tougher rubber in the key wear areas.
The shoe runs very well and feels good enough to compete with others in this category, certainly making it an option should you wish to stray from the familiar names.
