The upper of S82 is not only made with a large area of breathable mesh, but also resilient, stable, and durable. The lateral outside is further reinforced with TPU to provide greater support during side-to-side movement. To achieve better wear resistance than regular leather shoes, the inner toe of S82 is built with wear-resistant TPU material up to the V-Durable+ standard.
The V-shaped square design allows a light-weight and minimized landing area, while providing the anti-slip for vertical and lateral movement. This gives you more responsive and agile footwork while providing additional durability.
A unique breathing mesh layer is used to increase ventilation. It facilitates the heat dissipation. This creates a more comfortable environment for the feet.
New dual-density wedge structure midsole combined the ENERGYMAX3.0 on top, and Light Resilient EVA beneath, in accordance with the principles of sports biomechanics tangent angle of 7°, to balance the moments and angles of knee and ankle joint during exercise, achieving energy absorption and stable support together.
Upgraded outsole rubber, slip-resistant performance increases by 21% on dry PU floor.
The inner surface of the toe is equipped with protective coatings and a wear-resistant layer for upgraded endurance. In a wear level testing, the wear-resistant technology applied to the toe is proved 8 times more wear-resistant than average PU leather.
S82 is simply designed on the outside yet functionally sophisticated on the inside. Apart from the upgraded lightweight anti-slip patterns on the bottom, S82 also adopts the compound fabric upper that’s never been used in Speed series.
The special sole design for Speed series remains in use. The NeoDuplex midsole consists of an upper and a lower layer. The lower part is made with highly dense EVA to support midfoot when landing on tiptoes and facilitate force transmission from heel to forefoot—an ideal structure for reducing fatigue from longtime wearing.
