The CG097II Storm Collection will launch on November 23rd, 2012. I’ve made subtle changes to the shoe since the summer release. Instead of using the Lightweight vented insole, I used a more cushioned insole at an increase in weight. The original CGII weighed in at 6 ounces which made it one of the lightest natural/free/minimal running shoes on the market. The shoe still is one of the lightest, but the size 9 weighs in at 6.8 ounces now (Note the picture below). I also reduced the height of the shoe to make it more streamlined. This lower cut allows the addition of slots in the tongue to provide a better lockdown. Before there was slight movement in the heel. If a person is new to running or uses a heel to toe strike, it would be noticeable. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the shoe and wanted to share these pics with you before the launch. You will also note that the logos are finally pointing in the correct direction on each side of the shoe (Big yippeee moment). Finally the white rubber contact points on the outsole are now grey on each colorway. I think this gives the shoe more character, but more important it diminishes that light brown color from the glue between the rubber and foam. Let me know what you think and check out the pics.
