Stability shouldn't mean "stiff and uncomfortable", or at least that's what the folks at New Balance were thinking when they made the Rubix Running Shoe. This supportive yet lightweight and flexible shoe was designed for overpronating runners who want to stay light on their feet as they run. The Rubix accomplishes this task thanks to its Guidance Ramp midsole technology. Featuring multi-density foam set at different angles within deep midsole grooves, the Guidance Ramp system abandons the method of firm posts to control stability, instead opting for this more forgiving and smoother approach. In addition to being more comfortable and less stiff, the Guidance Ramp system also subtracts weight, something that's key to this shoe's performance and feel. New Balance wanted to give stability-seekers the same chance to enjoy a light and nimble shoe, and the Ground Contact foam outsole and midsole help work towards that goal. Eliminating traditional outsole rubber, the Ground Contact foam system places the midsole directly in contact with the ground, providing the same trusted traction along with a surprising amount of durability, all at a decidedly lower weight.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
