Trinity 2 provides the trinity of cushioning, support and flexibility in a lightweight and breathable, versatile running/training hybrid.
Benefit: Hardest wearing material enhancing the durability and longevity of the shoe. Excellent traction between the shoe and the ground. Non-marking.
What is it: Specially formulated vulcanized rubber.
Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.
Benefit: Arch support and pronation control. Removable, making the shoe suitable for orthotics. Also promotes airflow under the foot during activity.
What is it: EVA foam formed to cup around the heel and under the arch. Holes distributed from the forefoot and around the arch, combined with channels moulded into the bottom of the insole promote airflow.
Where is it: Inside the shoe, directly under the foot.
Benefit: Provides great energy return over a long period, so that the spring stays in your step no matter how far you walk or run.
What is it: Bouncy elastic sponge material.
Where is it: Mostly used in the midsole (for a limited number of styles), or the insole.
Benefit: Cushions and absorbs shock that over time causes bone and muscle trauma.
What is it: Specially formulated long lasting, soft foam material
Where is it: Typically placed within the midsole of the shoe underneath the foot, in the heel and forefoot areas.
Benefit: Supports the arch area of the foot (midfoot), and reduces stress on the ligaments that often cause fatigue and pain.
What is it: Hard, moulded thermoplastic (TPU or Nylon) or hardened rubber.
Where is it: Midfoot region of the outsole of the shoe.
Benefit: Supports the ankle and holds the heel firmly in place, providing excellent stability when the foot first strikes the ground. A firm heel counter is essential for fundamental support and stability.
What is it: Thermal Rubber material that is shaped to match the contours of your heel.
Where is it: Inside the upper part of the shoe, surrounding the back and sides of the heel.
Benefit: Ventilates and cools the foot.
What is it: Three layer interwoven textile mesh with a fibrous centre, through which air flows freely.
Where is it: On the upper (top part), normally on the vamp and middle section of the shoe, or on the lining of a leather shoe.
Benefit: Dramatically increases the longevity of the shoelace.
What is it: Normally the shoelace has a plastic sheath surrounding the end of it. However, this typically splits, cracks and falls off, leaving a frayed shoelace. The Fusion Aglet fuses the actual threads within the lace together, negating the likelihood of the tips fraying.
Where is it: An Aglet is the tip of the shoelace.
Benefit: No abrasive contact points on the upper of the shoe.
What is it: Seamless upper construction.
Where is it: Upper
