Zoot Kalani 2 Women's Running Shoes The Zoot Ultra Kalani is a great choice for triathletes and long distance runners alike; the neutral cushioning provides a great mix of comfort and balance without piling on the weight. The Zoot Ultra Kalani 2.0 brings comfort and style to a whole new level. This premium shoe is well cushioned for plenty of protection and still manages a firm underfoot feel with great energy return. Upper - BareFit/AirMesh The main fabric covering the upper has been selected with a tightly woven mesh construction, it allows fresh air to permeate the interior footbed keeping the foot cool and comfortable. It also provides a flexible base that conforms and moves with the foot for an enhanced performance. Supporting the mesh key place textile overlays at the midsection and towards the forefoot provides a more secure construction, acting upon torsion to maintain the shape and form, further extending the life of the shoe. There is also the integration of Asymmetrical lacing design and Asymmetrical, perforated neoprene tongue. These features help ensure an excellent fit and a secure feel. The textile overlays are attached through the lacing eyelets to bring the material closer to the foot. The Zoot Kalani 2.0 brings a sensory experience as it allows the wear to step into comfort. Its BareFit encompasses the entire upper and is constructed to allow for sockless wear. It is lined with Dri-Lex fabric which has Smart Silver designed to reduce moisture, odor, and hot spots on the interior while a Single Layer Ultra Sockliner is also designed for barefoot running comfort. Finally, a heel counter is internally placed to lock and support the Achilles as it transitions through the gait cycle. Midsole - Z-Bound/Carbon Span Improving the ride and feel of the shoe the Z-Bound midsole technology is designed to feature less weight and improved cushioning. Z-Bound has been engineered to provide the perfect balance between cushioning and rebound, absorbing impact shock

Love. These. Shoes! Zoots will be my go to brand from now on. As soon as I received them, took them out for a long walk and after struggling with several other brands, these are absolutely perfect. The toe box is a little wider, which makes them exceedingly comfortable. I ordered the wide a half size higher than I normally would order and they fit perfectly. I really love that they do not make my feet look big, they're light (can easily use them for running) and I can wear them without socks (which I somehow prefer). I could wear a thin sock if I wanted to, but delighted that it is not necessary. And who knew that the slip on factor was so important? I love not fussing with the laces! Did I mention that I love these shoes?! I kissed a few frogs but Zoots has a new loyal customer. Can't wait to order another pair.
I bought these thinking they'd be easier to travel with than full lace-up running shoes and socks. They are.
When I first tried them on I could feel the insole rubbing against the arch of my foot and I thought, "That's a blister waiting to happen." So I proceeded to get these ready for a return to Amazon. I never actually sent them back due to my own laziness. So I thought I'd give them a try on my most recent vacation. After all, I'd spent a pretty penny on them!
For whatever reason I cannot tell you, these have never rubbed my arch or any other part of my feet since the initial tryout. I wear them all the time for anything up to 3 miles - walking, jogging, running through airports, sailing, etc. They've become my favorite summer shoes.
The reason I gave them four rather than five stars is that they don't breath as well as I'd like a slip-on shoe to breath. Other than that they're great little Zoots!
I love this shoe...so keep buying it..and the great thing is..the price keeps going down ! The price thing is probably to do with me buying 'last year's ' color/ edition/ whatever..I have thin, mishapen 61-yr old feet and the slipper-like stretchy uppers on these shoes is heavenly. I can no longer wear classical 'lace-up' shoes without a great deal of discomfort on the top of one of my feet. I'm an 'All-American' age-group triathlete and have worn these shoes in many triathlons..as well as their 'sister' shoe the Zoots Ultra Kalani 3.0. Add some quick release lace thingies and transitions are very fast..no socks required..smooth flat-seamed interiors. A nice light shoe with pretty good cushioning. Would not recommend these shoes for rough off-road/ X-terra use however - the nylon uppers are a little too fragile to fend off sharp rocks and branches.
