The synthetic upper of the Jolt 2 GS Running Shoe is covered in a breathable mesh. This means that air can transfer in and out of the shoe with ease, removing warmer air and replacing it with fresher and cooler air, to keep the feet feeling cool. Thicker material covers the toes to prevent bumps from damaging the forefoot, whilst the heels are also held in a firm and upright position by strong walls. Stitching over the toes will further enhance the structure and make the shoe extremely durable. A reflective logo improves safety and visibility when running in low-lighting. Velcro across the top provides and easy, comfortable and adjustable fit.
Providing the foot with both comfort and protection, the midsole will protect feet when pounding the pavement, whilst you will also find every step is cushioned and gentle. Towards the bottom of the sole, the EVA responds to bumps and heavy contacts by instantly absorbing impacts. This will mean that any small rocks and areas of pressure will get blocked from coming into contact with the sole of the foot. In closer contact to the sole of the foot, the EVA is more cushioned, which will improve comfort in every step. The firm and solid structure of the midsole will make sure that you will stay in a stable and upright position whilst also protecting the shoe, which will allow it to last longer.
The tough rubber used on the outsole of the shoe is abrasion-resistant, which will prevent any damage from occurring over a long period of time exposed to hard ground. Additionally, multi-directional lugs are positioned to assist with grip as well as forming a solid base to push off from. The grooves allow the whole of the sole to flex when running without causing any damage to the base of the shoe.
