The GLIDERIDE™ 2 (Wide) shoe is scientifically proven to save energy over the long run. By reducing energy through the phases of the gait cycle from footstrike to toe-off, this running shoe can help you cover greater distances. This season, we wanted to leave the energy-saving properties intact while creating a smoother ride with a better fitting upper. Designed for runners who want to feel fresher for longer durations, this shoe is also a functional choice for recovery runs. This model's width is also wider to provide a more accommodating fit for those with higher volume feet.
Improving the fit of the upper, this design features an engineered mesh that provides excellent airflow while adjusting to the natural shape of the foot's motion. Paired with a 3D print, this application also creates targeted support without extra stitching or added weight.
GUIDESOLE™ technology consists of a stiff forefoot and curved sole that improve running efficiency by decreasing the load placed on the lower limbs. FLYTEFOAM™ technology cushioning is placed on the top layer of the midsole for a soft landing, while the bottom layer of FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology generates a more responsive bounceback. Sandwiched between these two layers in the forefoot is a stiff plate that helps keep the integrity of the midsole. Encouraging an easy forward roll, this motion propels the foot forward to create smoother and more efficient transitions between strides. Additionally, the AHARPLUS™ heel plug is a rubber compound in the outsole that's designed to improve durability and extend the shoe's lifespan.
For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size* for men is a 2E. Find out more about widths.
Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GLIDERIDE 2 (2E WIDE) is made for Underpronation, and Neutral.
