For the Sync, its “natural-fitting nestFIT platform and terrain-sensing Independent Suspension Technology (IST) sole, the lightweight, low-drop Sync proves that comfort and ground feel can coexist.” With a heel to toe drop of 4 mm, it approaches minimalism, but without sacrificing protection or comfort. For true minimalist runners, this will still be too much shoe. For someone like me, who runs in all kinds of shoes, it’s great.
I ran in the Syncs in every environment I could think of, from singletrack to gravel path to city sidewalks (no treadmill as ours is still dead). When I went to Canada last month for the Wine Blogger’s Conference, these were the only shoes I took (I went carry-on only, so one pair is all I COULD take), knowing that, whatever the circumstances were, I would have a comfortable run. One caveat to note is that, while definitely not narrow, this particular model felt like it had less overall volume than the others.
