This shoe has been crushing trails since it debuted and it just keeps getting better and better. If you're a trail junkie with a need for speed and loves a take-no-prisoners trail run, close to the ground contact, and an uncompromising proprioceptive trail terminator, then say HELLOOOOOOO!
It's lightweight, lightning-fast shoe you can trust on any trail. This certified speed-seeker is trail-ready with a MaxTrac™ sticky rubber outsole, the lightweight and responsive Quantic™ midsole, and the improved upper that’s more locked-in and durable. Throw in improved breathability, better drainage, and a removable StoneGuard™, and the Superior 4.5 is ready to blaze trail like never before.
HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO PREVIOUS VERSIONS?
The fit has been adjusted around the collar and the tongue area of the shoe which is going to allow you to get a really great lock down on the shoe. The upper has also had a vastly superior (mind the pun) upgrade which on first impressions should add significant durability.
The outsole and midsole remains the same. As they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
