The Pearl Izumi Men's EM Road N 3 Running Shoe is a neutral trainer with plenty of cush for the long runs. Its Dynamic Offset E:Motion midsole is Pearl Izumi's most cushioned midsole, now updated with a more medial flare for neutral runners. Fine tuned Energy Foam platforms in the forefoot and heel enhance stability without compromising flexibility, and they return energy and offer extra cush. Pearl Izumi's 3D seamless upper provides a sock like feel and structural support. The EM Road sole features grippy and soft blown rubber at the forefoot and abrasion resistant carbon rubber at the crash pad.
