This will quickly become your go-to training shoe for long-distance road running.
Your feathery-light racing shoe isn't the shoe you want to run in everyday. For high-mileage training days on the road, reach for the Pearl Izumi Men's EM Road N 2 Running Shoe. Moderately light with additional cushioning over a racer, this training shoe balances energy return, shock absorption, and support. Notable features include the low 3.5-millimeter drop (heel-forefoot offset) that eases transition between heel, mid, and forefoot striking styles and seamless construction that gives the upper a smooth feel against your foot. Glide through long training sessions with some spring in your step.
- Seamless construction gives the upper a comfortable feel against the foot
- Transfer Dry mesh upper allows air to flow freely across the foot and dries and drains water quickly
- Quick-lace system and rear pull tab makes it easy to transition in and out of this shoe
- Low, 3.5mm drop (heel-forefoot height) gives your foot nearly level heel and forefoot heights, which puts your foot in a position that's more natural
- This low drop allows you to easily transition between heel, midfoot, and forefoot striking styles
- E:Motion midsole is designed for underpronators and runners who require neutral support
- 1:1 Energy Foam cushions the forefoot and offers explosive rebound for toe-off
- 1:1 Shock Absorption Foam absorbs and diffuses impact at the heel
- Blown rubber and carbon rubber outsole provide traction on and off the road and supreme abrasion resistance for long-term durability

Perfect Trainer and Super Durable
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
hands down my go-to training shoe. supportive and cushiony without being bulky... something the guys at Pearl Izumi have really dialed in with their EM series. I'll train with these then wear Nike's Flyknit Racer or Adidas' Adios Boost on race day. minor complaint - tongue slippage. which doesn't happen with their trail version so hopefully PI will steal from that for their next revision. will definitely purchase again when these go dead but so far no signs of that even after putting high miles on 'em over the course of a year.
