An injected EVA foam midsole means that these shoes are very cushioning (and light), but the 3mm thickness shows they aren't the best for athletic endeavors, just indoorsy things. You need more convincing I see, so I'll also say that the outer sole of these shoes is stated to be the "Bare-X Lite" compound, which sounds super fancy, but it just means "foam." No rubber to increase traction, or durability, or to avoid small pebbles and nails along your path. Granted it is a mixed compound likely containing some rubberish material mixed into said foam, but the feel, look, and wear of the soles suggests they are mainly made of hard foam. I used these shoes daily on walks taking me onto concrete surfaces, through many buildings, and even down a few trails. The hard use has shown quickly. I have owned these for less than 1 year (constant use) and they are throwing in the towel at this point. I'd buy them again for sure, I'd just pick a less strenuous task to use them for-like gym workouts.
