Built in ComforDry Sock liner and mesh toe box, the Gel Fortitude 5 provides superior cushioning and anti-microbial properties that create a healthier, drier and more comfortable environment for the runner.
It also comes with built-in reflective materials for safety, alerting drivers and others when running in either dark or low-light situations.
