By adding a special elastic resin to the POWER CUSHION®, while maintaining conventional lightweight properties, high shock absorption is realized. Grooves designed in a lattice pattern, with optimum spacing and depth, achieve further resilience. In a test, conducted by Japan Vehicle Inspection Association and Boken Quality Evaluation Institute respectively POWER CUSHION®material demonstrated a 28% better shock absorption, and a 62% boost in repulsion when compared to conventional cushioning material. Raw eggs dropped onto POWER CUSHION®material from a height if 7m bounced on average 4m without breaking, further demonstrating the shock absorbing material of POWER CUSHION®.


Utilizes superbly resilient, wear resistant materials. Built into the outside, inside, and center of the forefoot, it boosts the overall performance of the shoe.
