Excellent traction on all kinds of surfaces

Zenith Quattro is the name of the outsole that actively clings to virtually all kinds of surfaces in the Joker Lace. Its thickness varies and depends on the size of the shoe; it can be anywhere between 4 millimeters and 4.5 millimeters.

I am passionate about maintaining an active lifestyle. I’ve been running and playing tennis since high school. In the last 5 years, I’ve picked up weight lifting and bouldering as part of my regular fitness routine. You can usually find me hitting the weights or rock walls at the gym, or trying out a new sport.
