Chi­nese com­pany 361° emerged on the Amer­i­can mar­ket about a year ago, and now is avail­able in Canada. The com­pany built their rep­u­ta­tion or­gan­i­cally in their home coun­try with both strong prod­uct sales and a mas­sive f leet of re­tail stores. Now, we get an­other rep­utable run­ning shoe op­tion from Asia in the Cana­dian mar­ket.

The kgm2 2 is a sleek and stripped down trainer/racer de­signed specif­i­cally for 10ks and half-marathons. The shoe weighs in at the lighter end of the scale for a model that could con­ceiv­ably be an ev­ery­day trainer for some. The breath­able mesh up­per com­pli­ments a rather plush mid­sole made from the com­pany’s Quick­foam ma­te­rial, which, ac­cord­ing to our testers, is ad­e­quately re­spon­sive dur­ing a hard tempo run. The out­sole is de­signed for the long haul as well: blown rub­ber pods pro­vide grip and dura­bil­ity, mak­ing the kgm2 2 a de­cent choice for ev­ery sort of work­out or race lead­ing up to a solid half-marathon.
