    "We have incorporated the MuCell processing technology into our manufacturing process for over 4 years now and that has allowed us to customize our designs to offer premium cushioning with a reduced amount of material. We have found the durability of these components exceeds standard foam running shoe applications – offering a longer wearing shoe with more rebound and energy return to our customers."
