Yes, this is an­other high-top shoe; but have a look un­der the bon­net to see the cool tech, which will be ar­riv­ing in South Africa at the end of Jan­uary 2019. In this case, it’s bat­tery pow­ered, and con­nects to the MapMyRun app on your smart­phone. A sen­sor is em­bed­ded within the shoe’s mid­sole, track­ing your ev­ery stride so you can see data such as dis­tance, ca­dence, and stride length af­ter your run. Set-up is sim­ple, say some of our less tech-savvy run­ners.

You get the same HOVR cush­ion­ing as you get in the non-con­nected ver­sion, which is the com­pany’s take on the bouncy foams that are hot right now. Testers re­ported the cush­ion­ing was suf­fi­cient with­out be­ing too soft, though they did wish for a more flex­i­ble fore­foot.
