Updates to Avia Avi-Verge
- The Avia Avi-Verge is a workout shoe designed for both men and women. This trainer uses a durable leather upper that has a slightly rigid structure which allows it to keep its shape even with regular use.
- This footgear utilizes a compression molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (CMEVA) foam technology that protects against impact by absorbing the shock.
- Inside is the MEMORYfōm insert. It amplifies the cushioning for longer comfort.
- At the heel section of the sole unit is the Cantilever System. It is meant to heighten shock absorption.
- Protecting the midsole against abrasion is the non-marking thermoplastic rubber. It also delivers traction.
Avia Avi-Verge size and fit
The Avia Avi-Verge is a cross-trainer made for male and female athletes. The men’s version is available in US sizes 7 to 14, including half sizes, and can be acquired in D – Medium and 4E – Extra Wide width profiles. For the women’s style, it comes in US sizes 6 to 11, with half sizes, and obtainable in B – Medium and D – Wide options. The leather upper with the plush interior delivers a snug fit.
The soleplate on the Avia Avi-Verge is made of thermoplastic rubber. This compound is designed to be durable, withstanding friction related to working out and walking. It has flex grooves that promote natural bending and smooth heel-to-toe transition. The tread pattern on this model provides multi-directional traction. The outsole is also non-marking so that it won’t leave scuff marks on polished floors.
The Avia Avi-Verge employs a CMEVA foam. This platform is designed to buffer the impact without losing its form to keep the foot protected and comfortable.
Inside the footgear is the MEMORYfōm sockliner. This footbed conforms to the shape of the underfoot to provide maximum coverage. It also enhances shock attenuation.
At the heel of the midfoot is the brand’s proprietary Cantilever technology. This structure functions like a trampoline, cushioning the heel while also delivering bounce with each step.
The upper of the Avia Avi-Verge employs leather. It also has leather overlays on the toe box, the quarters, and the heel to enhance the durability and support of the material. The interior is lined with a plush material covered with a smooth fabric that reduces friction to prevent hot spots, chafing, and blisters.
This model features a traditional lace-up closure that allows wearers to loosen or tighten the fit at the midfoot. The tongue is protected by a mesh fabric that promotes aeration of the foot chamber.
