Updated Precision (P) fit, a narrower toe box to better suit neutral / narrow feet and to keep the shoe firmly in place over uneven and muddy conditions.
Footbed: Comfortable and interchangeable footbed contains micro holes to aid in releasing water in wet conditions.
MidShoc: Molded cupped MidShoc™ midsole offers the best balance between comfort and underfoot sensitivity for both long and short runs.

Met-Cradle™ lacing cradles the forefoot behind the metatarsal heads to provide a secure foot hold while running up or down hill, in and out of mud and everything in between.
