Other technical shoe details include premium zone-patterned traction outsoles for superior on-court grip and an innovative lacing system that encases foam bubbles in the AR1’s tongue to prevent lace bite.

Additional elements within the design enhance both midfoot stability during lateral movements and forefoot lockdown to eliminate foot slippage. Heel TPU also increases heel stability when landing, which can help combat severe ankle injuries.
