We offer a wide variety of running shoes. Each shoe has its own characteristics. Then how to know what is the difference between various models? To help you out, 21RUN presents the Our Expert’s Opinion column. This column helps you get a better insight into the different characteristics of specific running shoe models and helps you find your perfect pair.
In the Our Expert’s Opinion column our running experts rate shoe models on a number of decisive elements. Do you already know which characteristics your new running shoes should have? Use Our Expert’s Opinion to check if the model you’re looking at meets your demands.
The degree of pronation indicates the extent to which a model provides support for overpronating runners. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the model gives a high degree of correction. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the model does not correct. Neutral runners don’t need a correction, overpronating runners often do need a certain degree of correction.
The level of support indicates to what extent the shoe supports your foot arch. The amount of support needed is closely connected to ones weight. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little support, making the shoe more suitable for lighter runners. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the shoe gives a lot of support; thereby making the shoe very suitable for heavier runners.
The level of cushioning indicates the extent to which a shoe absorbs shocks that occur during landing phase. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little cushioning. When wearing running shoes that provide little cushioning, you experience a lot of ground contact and responsiveness. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the shoe provides a lot of cushioning. When wearing shoes with a lot of cushioning you will experience a softer running feel, but less ground contact and less responsiveness.
The level of responsiveness indicates how energetic a running shoe feels. This often is also referred to as the degree of reactivity. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the shoe is less responsive. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the shoe is very responsive. When a shoe is responsive the energy of the landing phase is returned to you during take-off.
The New Balance FuelCell Elite v2 for men are neutral competition running shoes. These fast shoes are prefect for marathon races at a record breaking pace. The FuelCell RC Elite v2 provides quite a lot of stability and balance for a Carbon racer. Are you looking for your first Carbon plated running shoes? Or are you looking for an accessible racing shoe for your marathons? Then the RC Elite V2 might be the perfect shoe for you.
The upper is highly breathable, you can actually see the ventilation perforations clearly. The forefoot is quite roomy. Have you got wide feet? Than the RC Elite v2 will probably provide enough room for a comfortable fit and feel. The tongue isn't attached to the upper, but stays excellently in place anyway. The RC Elite v2 features quite some padding around the collar and the heel. Most racing shoes don't have this. Thanks to this the Elite v2 knows to provide the comfort level of a training shoe, but the performance of a racing shoe.
The Elite v2 has more foam in the FuelCell midsole. Thanks to this the forefoot and the heel are a bit higher than in most other shoes. The offset has been reduced from 10 mm to 8 mm. The extra volume of the midsole provides more cushioning which is especially necessary when running long distances. Thanks to the extra cushioning material fatigue is also postponed: your legs will feel fresh for longer.
The Carbon plate in the midsole of the RC Elite v2 has a wave-like pattern. Because the midsole was less thick, the plate in the predecessor was kept a bit flatter. Thanks to the thicker midsole there's more room to play around with the shape of the carbon plate and to make it even more effective. Thanks to this you'll have a more aggressive and faster feel. The shoes propel you forward during your runs. These competition shoes are a bit heavier, but you'll hardly notice this thanks to the enormous forward propulsion. The rubber underneath the forefoot has a different shape, but still provides excellent grip.
