Weighing in at 320g/11.2 oz. and with a heel to forefoot off set of 22mm/12mm this recreational trainer is the go to shoe for every day runners seeking efficiency without sacrificing comfort.
The upgraded Strong 6 MRS

"MRS" stands for Maximum Rolling Support, provides comfort and stability for the recreational runner with an improved rolling effect.
The Strong’s Fulcrum lever is extended on the medial side to provide a larger landing area for the runner requiring more support.
The runner’s foot is guided through the stance phase all the way to toe off with a more balanced transition. An enlarged external heel counter locks in the heel upon landing while a reinforced midfoot upper wraps the foot during stance phase.
Weighing in at 330g/11.6 oz. and with a heel to forefoot off set of 22mm/12mm the supportive every day trainer is the go to trainer for runners seeking efficiency without sacrificing support and comfort. `
