Unique approach to the sole of the shoe designed to create a smooth, rocking-chair-like transition from heel to toe on every step.
long description: 

Fluid motion at every step of your run.

SmoothRide is the result of years of development designed to the most fluid, smooth, rocking-chair-like motion in every step.

Smoothride begins working the moment your foot touches the ground. Flex Grooves in the heel promote natural movement from the back of your foot to the front, initiating that rocking-chair motion. Our AP+ Midsole gives the shoe a bouncier feel. And Flex Grooves and Flex Controllers in the forefoot work together to smoothly continue the roll forward to give your foot a more solid platform at toe-off. It all adds up to a more fluid, enjoyable run, every time you head out.

 

Smooth, rocking motion throughout your stride

Increased flexibility

More power at toe-off
