Find Your Shoe Type

Neutral      Stability      Trail      Lightweight      Motion-Control      Racing


With varying levels of cushioning, neutral shoes provide a comfortable ride for runners who don’t need any additional stability features.



For runners who like a little more support. A stability shoe features a denser foam or post under the arch to keep your foot in place.



A trail shoe features thicker treads and tougher designs for greater traction and protection against the elements.



So light you won't even feel them on your feet as you race past the finish line. Lightweight shoes are going to help improve your speed — but still give you the comfort and durability you need.


Motion Control

Substantial support for runners who have significantly collapsed arches. Heavy duty support calls for heavy duty cushioning to withstand the daily training regime and keep comfort the priority.



For the competitive athlete racing track or cross country. Lightweight, sleek and vary designs for different distances and surfaces. This style of shoe is made for speed.



Be Inspired, challenge yourself. Pick an event goal for yourself.
