Supportive cushioning

The midsole offers plenty of cushioning for the foot without the added weight. It’s attached to the shoe through Cushioning Strobel construction - a process of stitching the upper to the insole to give it rigid support.

Flexible cushioning

Strobel shoes are less flexible than slip-lasted shoes, but not as rigid or as heavy as the board-lasted ones.

Plush and breathable 

The Saentis Low has an upper made of a hybrid shell that combines soft inner fabrics and tough outer materials, including vent mesh. Together, they create a protective environment for the feet that is plush and breathable at the same time.
