Using testing and current technology available the current shoe has features including Sauc-Fit, Everun, and Triflex. They have a variety of colors and for visibility a reflective detail. All of these features while remaining light weight and flexible, take the guesswork out of picking the Omni as your running shoe.

What is the benefit of all of this? It distributes pressure and force over a larger surface area. Think of a body laying on a memory foam mattress getting the support in the areas needed. It also adds durability, lasting three times longer than traditional EVA materials. The materials used are not sensitive to temperature, this means it does change in the different elements giving you more consistent results. Your shoes should not be your excuse for different results or comfort due to the weather.
There is a strobel board of EVA foam rubber sheet that holds the upper to the midsole. It is glued onto the midsole and then the upper is stitched to it. This offers a secure connection of the midsole to the upper, which with most other shoes it floats.
A recommendation is to use a waterproof protective spray on the shoe. The material is breathable and does dry quickly but if you like to keep your shoes looking nice and add to the longevity of your shoe, spray them. This allows for the rain or puddle splashes to repel off them while on your run helping to keep your socks dry. This will also help with keeping stains from absorbing into the fabric and maintain their sharp look. The spray should be applied several times as needed.
