Does midsole drop matter?
The lower the drop, the more a shoe will help promote a midfoot strike—considered by many to have a lower impact stride than a heel strike. Keep in mind that the lower the drop, the more your Achilles tendon will have to work.
What is a midsole shoe?
The midsole is the cushioned material (material, density, and thickness may vary) that is directly between your foot and outsole. The midsole provides cushioning and rebound and helps protect the foot from feeling hard or sharp objects.
