Rounded heel and sticky-out stability pods make the Teva TevaSphere a bit different compared to traditional trail-running shoes.

Latest OutdoorsMagic review is Teva's new TevaSphere Trail eVent, an unusual-looking new running shoe that's reckoned to be both more efficient and more stable than conventional running shoes thanks to a radical new design with a rounded heel and odd sticky-out stability pods in the arch area of the sole.

Teva reckons the shoe's ideal for runners who rather than choosing to avoid obstacles, 'prefer to go right through them' and it's taken four years of scientific research in a sports science and human performance institute and 22 different prototypes to arrive at the final result.

Rather than changing people's running action, as with 'barefoot shoes', says Teva, the new design accepts that the majority of runners heel strike and aims to create a smoother, more efficient, running action based on their existing style.
