Our signature model combines our stickiest G®Rubber outsole, balanced geometry midsole, and hydrophobic Canvas uppers that drain water and dry fast. The unique Lilo™ construction reduces weight while increasing flexibility. All the details add up to create the ultimate outdoor sneaker.
- Granite Grip Outsole - Maximized sole-to-surface contact for increased friction on smooth surfaces. Razor siping increases quantity of edges for gripping. Beveled lugs help prevent mud accumulation. Thin profile for flexibility and sufficient sensory feedback promotes better balance and grip.
- Water Ready - All Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component, from the thread to the laces are critically evaluated and chosen for it's ability to hold up after constant soaking, shed water and not accumulate funk. Engineered for drainage of water while minimizing entry of silt
- Balanced Geometry - We believe that a foots position in a shoe should be similar to when barefoot. This allows excellent balance and bio-mechanically natural lifestyle. Foot beds are essentially level (less than 1mm drop from heel to toe) and provide medium arch support. Tapered instep and heel area for better foothold and control. Wide forefoot allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.
- GSS - The "ss" is for "Super Sticky" and we can confidently say that outsoles made with it provide the best grip in water-sports. Unlike other maximum friction compounds, G.ss is non-marking and provides good abrasion resistance. It's low durometer (measure of hardness) lessens impact and provides excellent conformity to surfaces.
