When you look at the running shoes,you’ll probably notice that they seem super-thick. The heel measures at 39mm, compared to the Ultraboost’s 29 mm. That’s a lot of cushioning,especially when you consider that the shoes are meant to be worn duringlong-distance races.
Once I got outside and took my first few strides, however, thoseworries evaporated. This is ashoe made for running, not walking. The bounciness that Partridge mentionedwas spot-on. I felt almost pulled onto the balls of my feet. The sneakers feltspringy, not soft, and they gave me a little extra oomph each time I pushed offthe ground.
