The 361 Flame is a lightweight carbon plate race shoe designed to produce a fast heel to toe transition, high energy return and more efficient running at speed. The upper is made from a lightweight mono mesh with reinforced sections for added structure.

There’s also a modest level of padding around the ankle colour for comfort, a lean tongue design and a healthy level of outsole rubber to protect the midsole foam.

Tom and Nick have tested the shoe out on a first run to see how it compares to other carbon plate options out there.
