Navigate gnarly routes with these versatile all-terrain shoes. Rain is no match for the shoe’s waterproof barrier, and the sole’s aggressive tread will force gravel, bogs, and uneven ground into submission. Gel cushioning absorbs impact and provides stability, while the memory foam in the heel gives runners a personalized fit.
- Uppers are highly breathable synthetic and waterproof to protect the foot during extreme/wet weather conditions.
- Gusseted tongues block debris and a built-in pocket provides laces with a tuck-in space.
- Perforated sockliner optimizes breathability and moisture drainage.
- Rearfoot GEL cushioning system attenuates the initial shock during impact and allows for a smooth transition.
- Memory-foam lined heel collars mould to your foot for a personalized heel pocket.
- Midsoles are Solyte, a resilient, lighter-weight material than Asics’ standard midsole compound.
- Gel inserts in heel and forefoot provide shock additional shock absorption.
- Three-quarter length Nylex plates provide torsional support and rock protection.
- DuoMax midsole construction helps correct the degree and velocity of pronation using materials of different densities.
- Outsoles are a combination of Wet Grip®, a sticky rubber for enhanced traction, and AHAR®, (Asics High Abrasion Resistant) rubber in higher wear areas. Aggressive uphill/downhill lug combination ensures traction on tough terrain.
Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
|21 - 11mm|
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
