Designed for sublimely smooth transitions, the Pearl Izumi Men's EM Road N2 V3 Running Shoe keeps you racking up miles in blissful comfort. Designed for runners with neutral to supinator gait patterns, this moderately cushioned running shoe provides plush padding and lively response on mid range runs and long distance efforts alike. In fact, its 23mm heel stack is indicative of its supple, yet highly reactive feel underfoot. The lightweight 3D Seamless Print Upper comfortably wraps around your foot for a supportive feel with every stride. Integrated mesh venting prevents built up perspiration during longer efforts in sweltering conditions. Additionally, you'll find a padded collar that prevents unwanted irritation, as well as reflective details for boosted visibility at night. Most impressive, Pearl's Dynamic Offset midsole facilitates a gradual transition from initial heel strike to toe off. The result is a smoother gait that's best described as running on a cloud. Further enhancing the shoe's well cushioned feel, 1:1 Energy Foam along the forefoot and heel dissipates shock while creating a responsive ride. And since it's intended for mid range to longer efforts, the N2 V3 uses a hybrid of blown and carbon rubber for an ideal mix of grip and hard wearing longevity.
