Men's Ride 13
This is a middle of the road solid neutral training shoe. Ride 13 contains PWRRUN foam midsole which is very responsive, provides more rebound than prior formulations, yet quite soft. There is also a nice, soft foam layer found directly under the footbed as it adds a nice extra layer of protection. The outsole is blown rubber which lightens the shoe but also is quite durable. The upper is breathable engineered mesh and very breathable yet it also contains a fit technology called “FORMFIT”. What this means is that the eyestay design combined with a stretch material attached to the tongue and anchored under the arch provides a very nice customized and supportive fit. Ride 13 comes with an 8 mm drop and is a neutral workhorse training shoe.

Stack height is 32.0 in the heel and 24.0 in the forefoot.
