The problem with the KD 9 was the Zoom bag popping, and most of the pops happened because of the tendril connecting the forefoot bag to the main bag; it ripped and shredded on more than a few pairs (we even had a couple of our pairs pop). The New KD 10 has thickened and widened the tendril, hopefully taking that problem out of the equation. We have enough problems with joints popping – we don’t need our shoes doing the same.
So far, the general reviews and feelings on performance are a slight drop off from the KD 9
, with traction not biting like it should and the Zoom bag feeling a little more muted. Since the bag is the same in size and shape, the difference has to be a PSI change within the bag or a density difference in the foam. However, if you check out the photos, the midsole/strobel board is cut out over the heel and forefoot.
