Extreme durability, elasticity, and longevity

Much of the strength of the Roclite G 370 lies in its durable outsole. What makes this brand-exclusive sole technology unique is the addition of graphene which has a lot of promising characteristics, such as extreme durability, elasticity, and longevity. This compound is said to be 200 times stronger than steel but is much lighter. Since it is so light, the wearer can move, walk, or run with speed and agility.
