Some shoes have extra built-in support designed for overpronators; others are minimally prescriptive, designed to provide cushion then stay out of your way. The Mafate Speed 3 features a symmetrical bed of cushion without additional prescriptive technologies. Designed to provide the support you want and nothing you don't.
All of our shoes contain cushion in the midsole, which is designed to lessen impact and provide support. How much cushion, and how firm or soft that cushion is, varies between models. The Mafate Speed 3 is designed to provide protective cushion while maintaining a responsive toe-off for when you want to go faster.
