Sustained wet surface grip

The Avia Avi-Union utilizes a non-slip outsole. This rubber is meant to be durable, so it does not quickly wear out. It is engineered to be oil- and water-resistant which allows it to stay grippy on wet surfaces.

The flex grooves are found in the forefoot area. They promote natural foot flexion. The outsole also features a tread pattern that enhances its traction and supports quick direction changes.

High-wear platform

The Avia Avi-Union employs a full-length CMEVA foam. This cushioning platform is made to be durable and flexible. It provides shock attenuation to prevent injuries or discomfort.

The midsole is enhanced with the GELfōm and the Cantilever at the heel section. The components create a cup that centers the heel and keeps it steady with each step. It has a high-energy return[,] which results in a trampoline-like effect for improved shock absorption.

The Avia Avi-Union's upper
