The Forward Ride is for those with a low-volume forefoot, given its small toe box that put some testers’ toes to sleep. With a slight twist on the natural running movement, the Forward Ride is all about the transition from heel to toe, allowing the foot’s biomechanics to flow with the running gait, treating our testers to freedom for ground force-absorbing mild supination and pronation.
