Benefits

Experience an all-new paradigm shift to running–max cushioning in a super light package. The Paradigm™ is a neutral training shoe that offers moderate stability and an impressive 34 mm stack height at an incredibly light 9 ounces. eva-Bound™ cushioning wraps up around the foot more on the medial side and acts as a guide rail to help prevent your foot from collapsing inward when it fatigues. The FootShape™ toe box and max-cushioned Zero Drop™ platform combine to place your foot in a natural position to promote proper, low-impact technique across long distances. A flexible outsole maps the bones and tendons of your foot to let your foot flex where it needs to, and features a unique outsole groove designed to naturally slow the rate of any excess pronation. Reimagine a max-cushioned run with the lightweight Paradigm.

Technology

This unique outsole and midsole componentry allows you to run the way you were born to by combining metatarsal mapping, a fully cushioned Zero Drop platform and FootShape™ toe box.

Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to promote low-impact technique, naturally align body posture and strengthen lower leg muscles weakened from running on elevated heels.

Allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more stability and a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.

Made of recycled materials, this unique layer sits directly under the foot to reduce the impact of hard surfaces and return energy into each stride. It's literally a layer of bouncy ball between the road and your feet!

This unique outsole pattern maps the bones and tendons of the human foot, allowing your foot to flex where it naturally wants to and utilize its natural stability zones for added balance and support.
