Already one of the lighter neutral trainers, this version shed .5 ounces. It remains an 8 mm heel-to-toe drop and weighs in at 9.4 oz for men and 8.5 oz for women.
One of the major changes is an increased SRC crash pad that extends into the mid-foot for increased flexibility and smoother transitions. The plastic mid-foot shank was removed to further increase flexibility and reduce weight. Vertical flex grooves continue to enhance the flexibility of this shoe. Improvements to this model continue to the upper where welded overlays create a more seamless feel to the top of the foot. Overall, the improvements made to this version create a nice plush feel, especially in the forefoot.
