Conclusion

On the basis of your investigation we consider the crivit PRO to be a dampening shoe with excellent dampening qualities. The observed dampening qualtities are at the same level of the also tested high quality benchmark shoe Asics Nimbus 18 (SRP 180,-€) and showed more dampening than the Nike Pegasus 33 (SRP 120,-€). Furthermore, the crivit PRO showed qualities of a stability shoe with good pronation control.

The participants rated the critvit PRO with 4 to 5 stars out of 5 in most categrories, similar to the brand benchmark models.
