The way you see it, personal bests were made for crushing. Built for a woman who requires tenacious responsiveness and speedy transitions, the Zoot Women's Makai Running Shoe steps up to whatever PB challenge you've set for the day. In fact, the Makai's design was inspired by triathletes, but made specifically for runners. A lightweight and breathable mesh upper encourages maximum cooling and the unique Z Lock lace system ensures a custom fit for any foot with its either or choice of standard laces or drawcord speed lacing system. In addition to its featherlight upper, the Makai is equipped with motion controlling, dual density Z Bound midsole which delivers comfortable rebound during that mid foot strike, while the strategically placed molded 3D heel counter and added midsole cushioning ensure extra comfort when heel striking. Not to mention, the Makai's carbon rubber sole provides just enough traction in those otherwise slick situations after all, there's nothing quite as humbling as road rash.
