Grippy, Has some support, not overly sturdy like a tennis shoe, but not like and the old Tibhar/other no support style shoe. I'd call it the light side of middle weight. Sizes run a little large.
Depending, I'll wear 10.5 to 11.5 , and this shoe, the 11.5 ( 45 ) was good.
Well made. Picky shoe buyer, and I'd buy these again.
