Cushioning

  • Arch Support Insole (EVA)

    Benefit: Arch support and pronation control. Removable, making the shoe suitable for orthotics. Also promotes airflow under the foot during activity.

    What is it: EVA foam formed to cup around the heel and under the arch. 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.

  • PU

    Benefit: Provides and excellent balance of shock absorption (cushioning) and energy return (rebound). These cushioning and rebound properties are longer lasting than other cushioning foams.

    What is it: Polyurethane sponge.

    Where is it: The midsole of the shoe, which is the part under the foot, between the outsole and the upper.

Stability

  • Nylon Shank

    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.

  • Thermoplastic Heel Counter

    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.

Upper

  • Double Black Full Grain Leather

    Benefit: Have you had black shoes that have scuffed the surface and a grey colour shows through? DOUBLE BLACK leather prevents this. Surface scuffs are invisible with DOUBLE BLACK. Full grain leather is hard wearing and breathable, becoming richer and deeper with wear, molding and adapting to your foot like no other material. Resistant to high temperatures, resistant to tearing, cracking, and peeling. It’s naturally insulating, but also breathable.

    What is it: Specially dyed fully black all the way through from the surface to the back of the leather. Natural full grain cow hide, tanned and dyed through with authentic techniques. This is the premium grade of leather.

    Where is it: On the upper (top part), particularly around the toe area of our black leather shoes.
