A few days ago I posted a preview video of Mizuno’s forthcoming EVO Cursoris zero drop running shoe. In my brief commentary on the video I wondered whether there was any rubber under the heel since it was hard to tell from the video. Seth Hasty from Mizuno was kind enough to send along a few additional pictures of the Cursoris, and it does indeed look like there is rubber under the heel, its just that it’s the same color as the surrounding midsole material.
I am curious about the black region of the sole under the medial forefoot – would be a good place for some firmer foam to resist medial caving of the sole at toe-off.
Here are the photos:
