These shoes offer a good amount of support and have no break in period so you can take them on a run right away.
In the midfoot, you will find FORMFIT and EVERUN technology. FORMFIT is a contoured footbed do distribute energy evenly across the midsole. This also helps you keep your balance when your feet hit the ground. EVERUN technology is designed to enhance cushioning. It offers a smooth landing and a responsive run.
The upper of the Echelon 7 is made of engineered mesh so the air flows in and out to keep your feet comfortable. The shoe offers external heel support for a secure fit and locks the heel in place. Laces on the shoe are flat, which helps to reduce the chances of irritation.
