ion-mask™ technology is a breakthrough in surface enhancement. It works at a molecular level, binding invisibly to the surfaces of products, giving them an extraordinary ability to repel most liquids.
The benefits are as clear as the technology itself. With minimal consumption and negligible waste, ion-mask™ enhancement represents a quantum leap in footwear technology.
ion-mask™ was originally developed for military clothing designed to repel chemical agents. Hi-Tec has led the introduction of ion-mask™ in the performance footwear industry.
Vibram is the world leader in high performance rubber soles combining quality, innovation and the best compounds for their specific use. Vibram has positioned itself as the market standard with a wide range of soles targeted to outdoor pursuits. As a result, Vibram soles are always produced with three objectives: to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort, and long-lasting quality.
To maintain their high standards, Vibram soles undergo a series of stringent tests in both the laboratory and in the field by the dedicated Vibram Tester Team.
V-Lite is a revolutionary concept that uses a creative combination of innovative materials and construction to strip away as much weight as possible without sacrificing performance or durability.
Upper: Lightweight leathers and synthetics combine with durable, non-metallic hardware.
Comfort-Tec Insole: Comfort-Tec features a moisture wicking contoured EVA footbed to cradle and support your foot.
Stabila Flex Plus Lasting Board: No more heavy steel shanks. A multi-density, contoured lasting board ensures torsional rigidity and delivers essential forefoot flex.
EVA Midsole: Low profile, compression-molded EVA absorbs the hard impact of the great outdoors before it reaches your feet.
High Traction Outsole: A lightweight carbon rubber outsole provides traction, without the unnecessarily thick, heavy rubber lugs found on traditional boots.
