7) PRETTY BASIC OUTSOLE. Well, except for the fact that they stripped away even more rubber from the midfoot. TRUE. That outsole rubber is heavy (comparatively speaking, anyway) so it makes sense to take it away where you don't need it and add it where you do. This colorway just helps accent the split. And you'll notice the outsole tread wraps over the midsole on the inside and just extends into an outrigger on the outside.
