Men's Spira Odyssey :: Imagine a running shoe where the cushioning keeps its "new shoe" feel for the life of the shoe? It's now a reality with the Spira men's Odyssey cushion trainer. The spring-loaded Odyssey stores and releases energy with every stride, helping to reduce injury, fatigue and impact forces. A single WaveSpring® in the heel and two WaveSprings in the forefoot are surrounded by compression molded EVA for superior shock absorption and comfort.
Recycle Your Energy! The spring-loaded Odyssey Cushion Trainer is a mid to high mileage performance training shoe designed for the recreational to serious runner. Since the WaveSpring® technology is mechanical the cushioning properties won't break down over time like most traditional shoes. The WaveSpring® is tuned to specific activities and shoe size by offering different spring configurations and sizes. A built in arch shank offers added torsional stability and support. High abrasion rubber at heel strike increases durability. A 3-pod construction process in the forefoot includes flex grooves for quick transition and flexibility through the gait cycle.

Spira has made a believer out of me! When I first tried the Stinger XLT's, I was so impressed I bought a pair of Odysseys for training & day to day use. I've found these shoes to be extremely comfortable for long-distance training as well as recovery after hard training or races in my XLT's. The wave springs in the Spiras really work to cushion impact, and the shoes always feel fresh and comfortable. Don't the the "springs" fool you - they are not going to make you jump higher or even mess up your stride, they just make your legs endure less abuse when you train & run. I recommend these highly for anyone who needs a little stability in a really comfy cushion trainer.
Comfortable, But Disappointing
I bought these because I have problems with shin splints and the "springs" sounded like they would help. They actually did. The issue that I have with this shoe is that I have run only 75 miles in them and they're bald! I understand that I'm a road runner, but still...75 miles? I will never buy this shoe again, nor can I recommend it if it is going to wear out that quickly. I just purchased the brooks glycerin. We'll see if they are any better
