The Runner Style Mid, a high-top sock, is midway between VEJA’s and Owens’ inspiration. It is also developed on the 54% bio-based new midsole combined with the 64% bio-based cork outsole. Moreover The upper in V-Knit is made of 100% recycled polyester coming from plastic bottles. Made in Brazil. The redesigned sole increases the lightness of the shoe. An evolved design for the outsole with longitudinal and lateral flex grooves adds comfort and enhances foot roll specially for long distances. Furthermore the L-Foam technology on the midsole ensures optimal cushioning and rebound thanks to the natural latex. (Style 2 + Style Mid)
