The memory foam collar and dual-layered sock liner of the Glide 2 combine for an instant sensation of cushioning and customized fit. The toe box volume and rear foot fit were relatively standard while the midfoot hold was strong and supportive. The Glide’s flexibility and perceived lightness helped the rear-to-fore transition, especially for midfoot strikers, and it felt like an efficient trainer.
