A close-fitting upper with a pronounced midfoot hold supported our testers’ feet in these lightweight trainers. The SynchroFuel’s ride had a nicely cushioned and resilient sensation that was amplified by the springy forefoot flex. The heel crash pad offset the snug heel cup and the ride was rated as that of a performance shoe yet with the feel of a more generous trainer.
