Excellent traction on slippery terrain and uphill conditions

The Magnum GV’s Ground outsole is the result of a collaboration between Asolo and Vibram. It is made of a Megagrip, a rubber compound that’s geared towards rugged longevity. It features WaveTechnology, which combines a low-profile design, triangular lugs, and a smooth climbing zone in the forefoot section. These features come together to render lightweight traction on slippery terrain and uphill conditions.

Excellent arch support

This approach-centric Asolo offering uses an EVA midsole to create a cushioned ride. It’s paired with a polyurethane (PU) insert to absorb shock from uneven ground conditions. Its anatomic footbed gives added cushioning and arch support to the user. An Asoflex Approach 00 SR lasting board is integrated into the shoe to make it stiffer.
