But your carbon footprint isn’t the only thing that’s scaled down. The Kayano Lite 2 is intentionally designed to be lighter than its counterpart, the Kayano 28.
An engineered mesh upper covers the Kayano Lite 2, securing the fit while still providing some wiggle room. The mesh is soft and smooth, so you don’t have to worry about chafing or blistering.
A padded heel collar holds you in place, while a rounded toe box gives your feet room to breathe. The shoe is snug in the midfoot, but reviewers mention it can work well for a variety of different foot shapes.
“The heel is secure, hugs the midfoot and has a nice open, rounded toe box. There are no seamed overlays, providing plenty of breathability and flexibility,” one reviewer explains.
A plush tongue provides all-around comfort, while flat laces allow you to easily customize the fit of your shoes.
