The Draw: Efficiency and Road Fortitude
When you don’t think about a shoe because it’s seamlessly doing its job, you know you’ve got a good one. The Meraki is such a shoe, using a carbon-fiber plate for an efficiently firm ride and countering that with engineered forefoot flex and natural roll-through. Although relatively low in profile for cornering and ground feel, the midsole was plenty cushioned and didn’t feel vulnerable. The upper is comfortable and keeps the foot firmly in place.
