2023 Walks Party Street Nice Shoes
Heading into new midsole foams,
one of the biggest running shoe trends I've yet to see is that street
(and trail) running shoes have gotten
lighter and more cushioned.
The most commonly used midsole foam in
new shoes is PEBA, which is superior to TPU and EVA as it has a lower density
A really perfect example of much less weight and
more cushioning is the new Hoka Clifton 9,
which lost four grams while also adding threemm of stack
height. Almost every emblem I visited had similar examples.
A bigger change is that the soles of the street shoes
are more exaggerated and flare out more at the edges
at the back of the heel. This widening gives the shoe a
considerably larger footprint, inherently developing a more stable platform
As a shoe reviewer who receives shoes before
general release, embargoes aren't new to me.
