This is our very first design, and it still can’t be beat as a stable trainer or general-use shoe with outstanding motion control.
The upper part of the Original is made of sueded pigskin and nylon mesh. The heel counter is dual 60/60 Surlyn®, and the midsole features a four-piece horseshoe construction. For most customers, the Original is combination lasted, but for extremely pronating feet or very heavy runners I may fully board last one or both shoes as the need dictates.
To make the Original into a superb trail running shoe, I can simply substitute our deep-lug outersole for our standard carbon rubber sole.
