SPIRE 4 IS ON THE 'BEST RUNNING SHOES' LIST 2020 BY RUNNERS WORLD MAGAZINE!
We’re happy to share the news that the 361º Spire 4 is #5 on the 'Best Running Shoes' list by Runners World Magazine UK! You can check the original article HERE.
They've selected the best running shoes 2020: the best men's and women's running trainers, tested in their lab and on the road.
"This is the flagship neutral-cushioning shoe from 361 ̊(as the price suggests), which means it should be suitable for marathon training and long Sunday runs. However, while this is an excellent shoe, it wasn’t ideal for its stated purpose. A number of testers reported numbness and pins and needles in their feet on higher-mileage runs, which was attributed to the very firm (and new) midsole cushioning; and the fit across the midfoot is too snug, allowing little room for the foot to swell as it heats up. That said, the responsiveness is outstanding and this, along with the firm cushioning and a springy sensation in the forefoot, make for a shoe that did well on fartlek, interval and tempo runs. The durability is also fantastic, with the shoe standing up to high-mileage batterings from heavier runners; the outsole remained in good order and the upper retained its shape nicely. Well worth checking out if you’re a midpack runner after a nippy shoe for shorter runs."
