Men's Ride ISO 2
For those who crave reliable comfort on any run, the Ride ISO 2 delivers the best of both worlds -- cushioning and a highly-adaptable fit. The feel-good combo of PWRFOAM with an EVERUNTM topsole give this neutral running shoe just the right softness for endless comfort mile after mile.
This is a middle of the road solid neutral training shoe. Ride ISO 2 contains a mix of PWRFOAM and EVERUN foam midsole which is very responsive, yet quite soft. The EVERUN foam is found directly under the footbed as it adds a nice extra layer of protection and is nice and soft. Built with a Tri-Flex outsole and with Crystal rubber in the forefoot Ride is quite flexible yet durable. The upper is quite interesting as while its very breathable 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 ISO 2 comes with an 8 mm drop and is a neutral workhorse training shoe.
