The "Roadrunner" was developed for running on surfaces paths and roads. It was created in 1970 in co-operation with Arthur Lydiard, the runner and long-distance running coach from New Zealand. The shoe has a normal width and is primarily suitable for harder surfaces. Suede uppers. Incorporated ankle support with cushioning of heel and ball of foot.
Made of leather - crafted on a last.
The shoes are constructed on a crescent-shaped last. The heel is surrounded by a soft border lining and the sole's edge and back are strengthened with rubber. The sole structure is produced in keeping with a conservative, traditional shoemaking method, which has nothing to do with most processes used today (foamed plastic with enclosed air or gel, etc.). The three-layer structure, with a hard-wearing rubber running sole, wedge and front-to-back middle sole made of cellular rubber, and the chrome-tanned leather insole provide a medium-hard step.
