Using new knitted material in the upper, the Waveknit R2 weaves in thread technology and construction innovation for a natural, supportive foothold without overlays. The upper moves—and even expands—with the foot. The midsole is impressive with its cushioning and smooth rolling performance, thanks in part to the exaggerated lateral crash pad. The forefoot flex is fluid, and the Wave heel technology aids in stabilizing the gait cycle while enhancing the shoe’s cushioning qualities.
