The TARTHEREDGE 2 TENKA running shoe is the complete racing and fast-paced training package. Appearing with a limited model colorway, this variation is representative of the Japanese term, Basara, which translates to "diamond" in Sanskrit lettering. Additionally, the shoe also incorporates a unique graphic concept that references the concept of "Hitogata" - a traditional armor that's meant to protect from the threat of life.
The new upper mesh is designed to improve airflow around the foot. This design saves energy by keeping the foot cool so the body doesnâ€™t have to work as hard to regulate temperature. Over a long race or training session, this energy savings can really add up, helping runners achieve their goals.
The midsole is constructed with FLYTEFOAM Propel technology to promote a high-energy return that increases the bounce effect with a responsive energy return.
The DUOSOLE outsole construction offers lightweight flexibility and traction to help you go further. Featuring a molded AHARPLUS heel plug to reduce excessive wear, this shoe also implements a PROPULSION TRUSSTIC SYSTEM technology for added stability and responsiveness as the foot moves from foot strike to toe-off.
Whether you're a competitive racer or simply like challenging yourself to beat your personal best, the TARTHEREDGE 2 TENKA model will help you take your fast-paced training and racing to the next level.
