Optimize traction on wet surfaces

The KEEN Evofit One allows users to overcome most types of terrain through its Aquagrip rubber outsole. It uses the brand’s proprietary rubber blend and a pattern of irregularly-shaped lugs that optimize traction on wet surfaces. This component also employs razor siping, a series of thin slits, across its rubber surface which provides added grip.
