The upper is an engineered mesh which helps to lock down the foot and provide support around it. It does also however allow width in the forefoot for extra volume.

The midsole of the 860 is a combination of two different foams. Therefor the dual density adds support in the midfoot to help stabilize the foot. The Trufuse foam is durable and that feeling of long lasting cushioning.
