  • Removable StoneGuard Rock Protection slips underneath the sockliner to disperse shock and protect the feet from rock-bruising. StoneGuard weighs 1.0 oz and is 1 mm thick (Men's size 9).

OUTSOLE

  • FootPod outsole design follows the natural construction of the human foot for maximum flexibility and a responsive ride.
  • MaxTrac Outsole uses anatomically-shaped sticky rubber that prioritizes grip and durability on uneven terrain.

UPPER

  • Quick Dry Air Mesh is updated for durability, wicking water away from your foot while remaining light and breathable.
  • Seamless Upper reduces irritation and provides next-to-foot comfort.
  • Gaiter Trap is a velcro strap that secures trail running gaiters to the shoe, preventing debris from building up beneath the shoe
  • Synthetic Overlays provide long-lasting support.
