Deconstructed Report of PG 5

Vamp: The stiff mesh fabric has good supporting performance. The shoe tree is wider. The fitness is excellent. The lengthen pull-tab of shoe heel is convenient for putting on and taking off the shoes.

Insole: The AIR STROBEL cushion brings excellent feedback. The big TPU supporting plate improves the stability of insole.

Overall: PG 5 still uses the AIR STROBEL cushion as the insole technology. By adjusting the material of vamp and insole, the fitness, stability and comfort level have been improved. But the appearance is not attractive.
