The Pearl Izumi EM Road M3 v2 is a standard, daily running, support shoe designed for a moderate overpronated foot motion.


Other Colorways:

Stable, smooth, and geared for high mileage, the Pearl Izumi EM Road M3 v2 is prepared to meet your daily running needs.  This supportive trainer adorns a flexible outsole for a smooth ride, while an updated midsole with softer cushioning in the heel lessens impact upon footstrike and a higher density medial post corrects overpronation.  Top it off with a seamless upper and you've got a shoe you can rely on mile after mile.
