361° USA is a new, up-and-coming brand in the U.S. running market and In Motion Running is the only store in Boulder that carries their shoes. The Chaser 2 ($100) is a premium lightweight performance trainer and 5K to half marathon racing flat built with an extremely responsive midsole foam, a seamless mesh upper and a carbon-fiber plate for quick-turnover running. The magic sauce of the Chaser 2 is the Qu!ckfoam midsole made from an EVA/rubber blend that provides an amazing combination of cushioning and responsiveness. Other key features include carbon-fiber plate for lightweight structure, a pressure-free tongue designed to provide comfort and avoid irritation and an outsole with segments of blown rubber for traction and carbon rubber for durability. The Chaser 2 has an 8mm heel-toe offset (23mm heel, 15mm forefoot). The men’s version (size 9) weighs just 8.2 oz, while the women’s edition (size 7) is a scant 6.8 oz.
