Lightness, traction and feedback. Feline UP has been engineered for fast off-trail runs of short- and medium-distance on rough terrain with steep gradients, mud and rock. The revolutionary design of the lugs, combined with Megagrip by Vibram, provide outstanding grip on wet surfaces and continual perception of good friction under foot, enabling the runner to exploit 100% of the power provided by the legs. The reduced-drop midsole, combined with the foot-hugging Minimal Fit system produce an ultra-lightweight, reactive and precise shoe which is ideal for ambitious athletes tackling short- and medium-distances, in races as well as training runs.
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
