Benefits

Experience the lightest, max-cushioned shoe ever made–the all-new Paradigm™. This stable, neutral training shoe features an impressive 34 mm stack height at a super light 8 ounces. The midsole sidewall wraps up like a guide rail to prevent your foot from collapsing when you're fatigued. The combination of a FootShape™ toe box and max-cushioned Zero Drop™ platform place your feet in a natural position for a smooth, comfy and low-impact run across long distances. Female-specific design accommodates the narrower heel, longer arch and higher instep of women's feet. The flexible FootPod™ outsole maps the bones and tendons of your foot, letting your foot flex where it needs to for greater speed and stability. Make your feet happy and run better with an all-new paradigm to max-cushioned running.

Technology

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.

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.

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.
