Our verdict

A rather specific design to the shoe, it feels at its best when you pick up the pace and are striking the ground with a mid to forefoot gait. In that, it is very specific, but if you are able to attain that speed and motion you'll enjoy this shoe no end.

  • Positive
  • Light and responsive
  • Sock-like fitting upper
  • Promotes faster gait
  • Negative
  • Not for everyone - see our verdict

First impressions

It looks fast and it is. The shape and design are a little unusual but after a few strides you sense where the designers where coming from and the shoe begins to feel natural and smooth, especially as you pick up the pace.

Midsole

A FuelCell midsole material give the shoe that responsive 'zip' you want from a faster paced shoe. The way the brand have cleverly engineered the shape of the midsole to 'catch' the midfoot on impact on the lateral side of the foot, allows it to roll in and off very naturally and promote a smooth transition when on the ground. 

Upper

The knitted upper mesh has a sock-like quality to it and with the lacing system being incororated into the design, it fits closely and is snug and secure without being too tight. It has an almost track spike quality about it. 

Sole

At first glance it there doesn't appear to be much outsole, but the translucent rubber they've used is very durable and doesn't add too much extra weight to the package.

Conclusion

If you regularly incorporate tempo runs and interval sessions into your training and enjoy that feeling of 'picking up the pace' - this is the shoe for you. It's like the shoe wants you to go fast, engaging with the foot to propel it down the road. It's by no means an everyday shoe, but on the right days it's great.
