361 Degrees, the maker of Strata, is a relative newcomer in the running shoe game. Founded in 2002, it now has over three-thousand authorized dealers across the globe. 361 degree was the official clothes supplier of both the 2016 Summer Olympics and that summer’s Paralympics. Since their startup, they have produced many products for runners, and the 361 Degrees Strata is their latest addition to their line-up of outstanding running and athletic shoes.
The Strata is a stability shoe first and foremost, with solid arch support and flex grooves in the forefoot that is designed to help the foot roll more effectively during a run. A layer of EVA helps with stabilizing the bounciness of the Qu!kFoam to ensure a stable ride, while its open mesh upper keeps the foot cool during a run. A thickly padded heel and ankle collar provide additional comfort and security, and its roomy toe box keeps the foot from feeling too tightly packed into the shoe. For runners seeking a stability shoe that can take high mileage and need a flexible, comfortable shoe, the 361 Degrees Strata may be their next go-to shoe when on the move.
