The Pro 5 is the sort of shoe that Etonic was previously best known for: mega-stable, ultra-supportive and well-cushioned.
It's a traditional motion control shoe with a virtually straight last, a big medial post and supportive upper. The Pro 5 should prove extra stable: as well as the dual-density midsole, Etonic has also opted for a harder TPU reinforcement for the medial post.
Like all of the other Etonics – apart from the Pro 3
– the Pro 5 uses the firm's ICO cushioning pads. In this case, in the forefoot. This makes for a pretty smooth heel-to-toe transition for the Pro 5.
A motion control shoe that does exactly what you'd expect of it. Lots of cushioning and lots of support. Another good-value shoe from Etonic.
