Updates to Avia Avi-Union II

  • The Avi-Union II from Avia is a walking shoe intended to be worn by walking enthusiasts as well as workers in wet and slippery conditions. It is crafted to be lightweight and deliver strong traction on various surfaces.
  • Its upper is made of durable synthetic leather. It is coated with Defender by Scotchgard to resist against water and stains.
  • The midsole is made from compression molded EVA for shock absorption and support. A soft gel heel unit is installed together with the Cantilever technology to attenuate shock during heel strike.
  • The footgear has an outsole developed with an oil- and slip-resistant rubber. It is purposely designed to provide enhanced grip, particularly on drenched environments.

Avia Avi-Union II size and fit

The Avia Avi-Union II is fabricated in two versions suited for men and women. The measurements for men range from US 7 to 14 with half sizes in between from 7.5 to 11.5. The women’s sizes run from US 6 to 11 with half sizes in between. It comes in various width options, D - Medium and 4E - Extra Wide for males and B - Medium and D - Wide for females.

Outsole

The Avia Avi-Union II uses an outsole that is constructed with an oil and slip-resistant rubber material. Its notable tread pattern improves grip during dangerously wet surfaces to prevent the wearers from slipping and falling.

Midsole

The Avia Avi-Union II utilizes a compression-molded EVA for its midsole. This material is characterized by its shock absorption and responsiveness. A soft gel heel unit softens the blow during impact. The Cantilever technology further protects the rearfoot area by serving as a trampoline that attenuates shock, facilitates energy return, and adds support.

The removable sockliner is made from EVA, which keeps the foot protected against impact. It is molded to the curves of the underfoot for even cushioning.

Upper

The upper of the Avia Avi-Union II is structured with synthetic leather which was found to be more durable compared to most materials. It is also covered with the Defender solution by Scotchgard for stain and water resistance.

The collar and tongue of the shoe are padded for a cushioned feel. It also makes the fit more snug.

The traditional lace-up closure is used for a secure foot lockdown. It also enhances the lateral support through the tightening of the shoelaces.
