Excellent traction on extremely rugged surfaces

First in line to receive the assault of the mountainous terrain is the 6B+ GV’s rubber outsole, called Vibram Vertical. This component—a resulting product of Asolo’s partnership with Vibram—promises traction on extremely rugged surfaces, all thanks to its sticky construction and aggressively designed lugs.

Provides underfoot comfort and ground stability

This boot uses a stiff yet cushy midsole for underfoot comfort and ground stability. It is equipped with PU inserts, one at the heel and another at the forefoot, for extra shock absorption. For added cushioning and support, on the other hand, this stabilizing layer is paired with the Lite 3 anatomic footbed.
