Often confused between a casual and a running shoe, the Solarboost work great for both situations. They are easy to use with their extra durability and with the impressive design. Even the midfoot is different from what you might expect. Instead of the classic overlays, you get a tailored fiber which is actually made from recycled plastic. But even in these conditions, the midfoot is still stiff which recommends the shoes for running, not just as a comfortable casual everyday solution. However, this means that they might not be as comfortable as some other shoes, such as the Ultraboost. But for running purposes, they are a true durable design.
