Overall fit & Profeet thoughts

The heel counter locks in securely so those with a wider heel or ankle may be cautious of this. The way the Rockstop and midsole work together allow a slightly rockered feeling where the natural flex point of the shoe is very welcome when running on firmer ground.

New BAlance Summit KOM
  1. Upper: The upper uses a synthetic mesh combination so there is more accommodation around the widest part of the forefoot, they then use a firmer overlay to aid the security of the midfoot. Firmer toe guard also helps to protect against rocks and debris.
  2. Midsole: The K.O.M used an EVA compound REVLite which maintains a responsive feel into the forefoot while still being slightly firmer than other comparative trail running shoes.
  3. Outsole: The K.O.M uses a newly designed Vibram outsole allows multi directional traction for when you’re running on unpredictable terrain. There is also a ROCKSTOP plating to protect the foot from rocks or sharp objects

The Q.O.M is the women’s specific fit for this range of trail running shoes. The way the Rockstop and midsole work together allow a slightly rockered feeling where the natural flex point of the shoe is very welcome when running on firmer ground.
