In trail running, there's a middle ground. It's root-covered, rock strewn, and it stretches for miles. Pendulum is the swift, stable shoe that's been optimized to make the most of it. Like a more minimally-minded shoe, Pendulum keeps the foot close to the ground and optimally positioned for natural forefoot strike. But at the same time, an EVA midsole and TPU plate protect the runner from the occasional heel strike or wayward stone. A bonded upper minimizes hotspots while a toothy outsole maximizes miles over sketchy terrain. The Pendulum features a 3mm Flux Foam footbed, Waveform S/C midsole, and a seamless upper.

Fit Profile: The Pendulum is built on the Immerse 360 last. This last features a slightly asymmetric shape that places the foot in a powerful position and accommodates those with higher arches. A narrow heel pocket, securely anchors the foot and minimizes excessive movement. This high performance last allows the foot to move more naturally by addressing foot shape holistically. The foot is completely supported but not inhibited, leading to stronger feet which leads to amplified performance.
