Produce grip in virtually every direction

The Megaton GV’s solution to slippery surfaces is the Vibram Megagrip outsole. This durable rubber layer is covered with angular lugs to produce grip in virtually every direction.

Prevents debris buildup

The engineering of these lugs—the way they are spaced apart—sheds dirt and prevents debris buildup. Outside traction, this component also extends upward, creating a protective toe bumper.

Provides underfoot comfort and stability

Lending hikers the amount of underfoot comfort and stability they need is the shoe’s mono-density EVA midsole. The material it is made of—ethylene-vinyl acetate—is known for its longevity and stress-crack resistance.
