This shoe receives the full 25 points on both heel and midfoot stability. However, while the forefoot had great flexibility, measuring at 90 degrees, the flex point was too close to the center of the foot. This causes an abnormal strain on the ball of the foot. As a result, we gave the shoe a 35 out of 50 for forefoot flexibility.
This is a great shoe for running or walking. This would be classed as a stability shoe for a wider and flatter foot but also for a heavier individual. Tread design indicates that it would be good as an outdoor shoe. This shoe would not work for an average runner and it would also be too much of a shoe for most walkers.
The bending point of the shoe indicates that this is mainly for those with severe postural problems of the foot requiring shoes with these strong stability characteristics. Good candidates for this shoe type would be women with a high Q angle as well as individuals who extremely roll their foot inward. The seam at the toes may rub on the big toe but there is plenty of room in the toebox.
Overall, this would be a good choice for heavier individuals with flatter and wider feet but again, not a great choice for the average runner or most walkers.
