The Brandblack Tarantula is the first performance running shoe from David Raysse and Brandblack since the Kite Racer released in 2019. The Tarantula looks minimal but there’s actually a lot going on and Chris breaks it all down in the video.
What’s in the video?
In the video, Chris provides detailed information from all the usual categories, providing the in depth information you need. He supplies expert level opinions on the materials, cushioning, traction, support, and fit. Here’s some of what he discusses:
- Vibram 4-part outsole
- Jetlon SuperCritical high-rebound foam
- Jetlon’s place in Brandblack’s history
- Cushioning that’s not mushy
- Unique foam heel counter
- Layered upper with mono-mesh, screen mesh, and webbing
- Reflective hits
- Lightweight tongue
- Roomy toebox for toe splay
- Sizing recommendations for running and lifestyle
And as an added bonus, Mrs. Wing talks about how trendy certain colors are with all the brands. Do you think the brands are getting their info from fashion week like Chris theorizes? Or are they getting their color schemes from somewhere else?
