Mt Adams' compression-resistant cushioning

The Mt Adams from Danner employs a polyurethane (PU) midsole. Its long-lasting cushioning is attributable to its resistance against constant compression. It is integrated with a full-length polypropylene board which withstands temperature changes and provides support.
