Ergo Heel Cup™UPPER To stabilize and fixate the heel, which is key to providing a great fit and comfort, we have developed a new anatomical Ergo Heel Cup that is slightly longer than the average heel cup.
X-Design™ UPPER The unique asymmetrical X-factor design stabilizes the foot for lateral movements and reduces pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsopha- langeal joints). It is important to keep the foot stable medio-lateral, avoiding friction and side forces in the soft parts of the foot sole,especially underneath the forefoot. In order to fixate the forefoot without getting pressure at the MTPs we have developed a horseshoe shaped "Front foot lacing stabilizer" within the asymetrical X-Factor design.
Off Centre Lacing upper A symetrical lacing designed for added comfort and improved fit.
T.G.S.62/75™ MID SOLE The distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called "ballet" line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped the X-Factor with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot's natural movements. TGS 62/75 takes all of the gait cycle criteria into consideration. At the same time, it softens the strains caused by friction during lateral movements. The shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot's natural lateral and forward movements.
Rebound Foam MID SOLE Forefoot rebound energy foam- RE35. 80% better rebound energy than a regular EVA midsole compound.
Cushioning Foam MID SOLE Heel cushioning foam - C35, positioned at the heel centre, gives you 70% better shock absorption than a regular EVA midsole compound.
Speed Lite™MID SOLE The Speed LiteTM midsole is a lightweight performance EVA com- pound with long lasting cushioning qualities.
Roll Bar™OUTER SOLE Increased radius on the inner side of the outer sole, facilitates rolling the foot inwards and toe push off. Reaching for that drop shot in squash or covering a shot in floorball is made easier with the Roll-BarTM technology.
LMS+ OUTER SOLE Fast lateral stops expose the foot to the risk to roll over outwards, causing injuries. LMS+ (Lateral Movement Stabilizer Plus) is a unique design with a positive angle of 5° that prevents the foot from rolling over outwards.
Spin Zone™OUTER SOLE The design of the outer sole meets the lateral movements, twists and turns that are typical for indoor sports. The Spin Zone design - applied in the forefoot area - makes it easier for the forefoot to twist and turn under pressure, avoiding stress on knees and joints.
XR110 OUTER SOLE A newly developed durable rubber compound with excellent 25% traction improvement!

The shoe is very well built, i love it! I was looking for a narrow shoe and this fit perfect. If you have a normal sized foot i think i would suggest a half size smaller in the x lites. The break-in time was literally an hour.
