K-Swiss’ newest addition to running world is packed with features to satisfy the overpronation crowd. K-Swiss had motion control in mind when designing the last – which is roomy and comfortable – as well as the toe box, which doesn’t pinch and feels well adjusted right out of the box. While weighing in at a hefty 12.5 oz, Athenas and Clydesdales will appreciate the stable feel of the heel and wrap of the midsole. Heavily featured in this shoe is K-Swiss’ new SI18 technology – it adds cushion and support for both ride and durability to the heel pad and outsole of the entire shoe. It also adds smoothness to the heel toe transition, which felt similar to industry leading technologies – we were pleasantly surprised by the lack of forefoot klunk that heavier and stiffer models are usually guilty of. The patented “Flow Cool System” is nice for those hotter days, allowing for air flow over the entire foot. Also nice is the new “Aosta II” rubber compound – it makes for a very springy yet sure footed feel. The bottom line: if weight isn’t an issue, and a sure footed smooth ride with motion control is what you seek, look no further.
