SPARTAN Fuseknit X Training Shoe - Men's
SPARTAN by CRAFT Fuseknit X is a versatile, lightweight and high-energy return shoe built for running and cross training. The shoe’s seamless sock-fit Fuseknit upper offers smooth comfort with great flex and support for both speed intervals and longer runs. It's contemporary look takes you from the street to the gym in style.
The X-Support™ system provides optimum stability and fit with reinforced cords that wrap under the foot and behind the heel. The midsole is a soft one-piece foam with inserts to perfectly activate the ride – the landing pad in the heel absorbs energy at heel strike while the launch pad at the forefoot returns energy.
Isometric triangular lug patterning gives the ultimate in minimal traction while flex grooves give superior flexibility in the forefoot and low decoupling in the heel to disperse energy through the entire stride.
Great shoe, good for distance running.
P.S. Don't put the insoles in the dryer; use newspaper to soak up the water after runs in the rain.
These are great shoes for me. I have wide feet and the are comfortable. I like that they have no tongue. I do not have any problems with any bunching unlike the previous review. Craft shoes have been great for me, even my OCR ones
I absolutely love these shoes and how the perform. The X-support design is great and the soles are very responsive and super comfortable. The fuseknit mesh is incredibly breathable and I love how lightweight these guys are. However, I think the idea of the "sock-like" fit is only good in theory. Removing the tongue from these trainers means that when you go to lace the shoes the fabric bunches over and causes some uncomfortable pinching between the laces. It's not awful, but it's definitely not great.
