#kixspotted Peak Flash 4.0 TaiChi
The Peak Tai Chi is now on its fourth edition and I don't think it has any plans of slowing down. I mean, why would they when they struck gold with that Tai Chi cushioning offering great impact absorption. In fact, I will be releasing performance review on the shoe from Peak that offered Tai Chi cushioning. I think that model was the first one that they used Tai Chi foam. So in case you want to know more about that, I will be posting it this week here and at my YouTube channel so don't miss on it.
Back to this shoe. The shoe itself sports a midcut profile. Made from a combination of textile and some synthetic leather panels, the shoe looks pretty straightforward. The paneling did add some design elements making the shoe not look too plain. You can also see some plastic or TPU materials on the heel area and on the midfoot to act as a torsion plate for stability and support. Where I think the shoe shine is on its cushioning which features Tai Chi foam on the midsole. Peak have been using this cushioning on their different basketball models and even across different shoe categories like lifestyle or training shoes. Also, they add another cushion tech which they call Super P-Motive cushion. The text label of the foam tech is placed on the forefoot area which can be seen on the medial side so I assume that the Super P-Motive is placed on the forefoot to aid your push offs. With the Tai Chi foam, you can be sure that there is enough impact protection and comfort underneath. (Watch out for my review soon). Finally, a solid rubber outsole was used for this particular colorway which I think is a Year of the Rabbit colorway. The pattern is similar to a chain link pattern. It looks moderately thick, and I personally have no idea how durable it will be especially if you plan to use it heavily outdoors. The shoe retails for Php 6,495 at SM North Edsa.
