Tough, comfortable leather all-rounder. Great for walking down the street or through the bush. Ideal for travelling and camping.
NEW Bungee Insole!
Benefit: Hardest wearing material enhancing the durability and longevity of the shoe. Excellent traction between the shoe and the ground. Non-marking.
What is it: Specially formulated vulcanized rubber.
Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.
Benefit: Arch support insole with increased arch support and more cushioning. Removable, and so able to be replaced with orthotics if needed.
What is it: Specially formulated BUNGEE foam formed to cup around the heel and under the arch (thicker under the arch than our normal arch support insole providing more support). Holes distributed from the forefoot and around the arch, combined with channels moulded into the bottom of the insole promote airflow.
Where is it: Inside the shoe, directly under the foot.
Benefit: Soft, lightweight cushioning that absorbs impact shock.
What is it: ethylene-vinyl acetate
Where is it: The midsole of the shoe, which is the part under the foot, between the outsole and the upper.
Benefit: Supports the ankle and holds the heel firmly in place, providing excellent stability when the foot first strikes the ground. A firm heel counter is essential for fundamental support and stability.
What is it: Rigid plastic material that is shaped to match the contours of your heel.
Where is it: Inside the upper part of the shoe, surrounding the back and sides of the heel.
Benefit: Supports the arch area of the foot, and prevents the shoe from bending in the wrong place (in the middle of the shoe). The shoe should naturally bend across the joints in the forefoot region.
What is it: A hardened nylon piece.
Where is it: Placed internally (in the sole) in the arch area of the shoe.
I recently purchased the Geelong shoes - black and brown. Because I was so pleased with the Geelongs, I purchased the Creed which arrived yesterday. I have never put on a shoe that felt as good as the Creed. They fit like a glove and my feet felt great. Very pleased to know that an Australian company can provide such terrific shoes at such a good price in a huge competitive international market.
Your products are superb. I bought pair of Creed II about 4 years ago and have walked great distances with them, often over stony ground; very comfortable and amazingly long lasting. Still not worn out but I have ordered another pair at your website, ready for when needed. Congratulations on a truly excellent product.
Just a brief note to say that my pair of Creed 2 shoes are doing BRILLIANTLY, having been worn for at least 12 hours every day for the last 5 weeks in all sorts of terrain and in all sorts of weather as my wife and I enjoy some long service leave.
