    Shoes just arrived, here are a couple of pics.

    You can see how the heel pitch is Zero, the heel stiffener is, "firmish", the sole is designed to allow the heel to mid foot to twist either way, but the forefoot does not twist at all but it does flex well.

    The five channels in the tread pattern are about 8mm deep and about 4mm wide, yet to see it on a client.
