We recently introduced you to the EM Road N 0, an upcoming racing shoe from Pearl Izumi. In early 2014 we will also see a second new offering from PI, the EM Road M 2.
If you are well versed in Pearl Izumi’s shoe-naming system, the story of the upcoming Pearl Izumi EM Road M 2 should be apparent. For those uninitiated, the EM Road M 2 will introduce a mild support, moderate cushioned option to PI’s well-executed E:Motion collection. Expect the Road M 2 to offer the same great qualities of its peers – a quick transition, smooth ride, and a socklike fit – and weights of 9.8 oz (Men’s 9.0) and 8.9 oz (Women’s 8.0) according to the PI catalog.
What to Watch For
- Seamless Upper: A supple mesh upper features TPU film overlays for a secure fit that doesn’t rub the wrong way.
- Midfoot Support: A high density post at midfoot provides mild to moderate support for overpronation.
- Dynamic Offset: Pearl Izumi’s midsole geometry encourages a quick and responsive toe-off and an efficient stride.
