Astral's high-friction outsole

To give the TR1 Mesh a grippy sole, Astral designers equipped it with the brand’s patented rubber compound, the G.15. This high-friction rubber is abrasion resistant and employs 5 mm deep lugs to bite on most terrain. It is made softer to increase ground sensitivity.

Fatigue-reducing cushioning

A cushioned EVA midsole with Top Shank helps reduce fatigue. It is designed with only a 1 mm drop from heel to ball to promote balance and natural biomechanics of the foot.

The midsole works with an EVA heel cup and a removable insole treated with Polygiene. This treatment renders an odor-free environment as it prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Astral TR1 Mesh's lightweight materials

The upper of this low-cut hiking shoe uses a ripstop 2D mesh. This material enables quick-drying of the TR1 Mesh after getting soaked in water. Likewise, it maximizes ventilation.
