  • Smooth Ride is a gender-specific network of grooves that minimizes the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot to create a smooth heel to toe ride.
  • U4ic is a lightweight midsole that provides optimal shock absorption, improved durability, and a resilient ride.
  • U4icX Heel Wedge is a lighter, more cushioned version of U4ic that delivers a soft, pillowy underfoot feel for cushion upon impact.


  • X10 located in the heel is made of durable carbon rubber for enhanced traction.
  • Blown rubber in the forefoot increases cushioning and responsiveness.
  • Flex Controllers placed in high flex areas on the outsole act as miniature wave plates for increased flexibility and reduced weight.


  • Dynamotion Fit creates an optimal fit with stretch material in the forefoot and a collar construction that prevents the heel collar from buckling under load.
  • Dual Zone engineered mesh in the forefoot is updated to better respond to foot movements for a distraction-free fit.
  • Premium Anatomical Sockliner helps provide a natural fit while creating a softer feel directly beneath the foot.
  • U4icX Strobel Lasting board for a comfortable and cushioned underfoot feel.
