The former Bowerman line, generally considered more traditional running footwear, is whittled down to color updates on the four primary models within the Bowerman line, the Vomero+5, the Equalon+4, the Structure Triax+ 13 and the Air Pegasus+ 27. The rest of the shoes earmarked for the running specialty industry are Lunar.
