Shock Eraser

The Shock Eraser is an extremely potent shock absorption unit as the foot hits the court. This technology minimizes the amount of impact that gets to the foot and converts it into lasting comfort and support. By shielding the foot from blows, the Shock Eraser lowers the risks of foot injuries and discomforts.

Provide stability

Tight under the arch is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) shank that provides stability. This rigid unit is able to resist unwanted torsional rotation during play. The firmness of this material hinders the heel from rotating outward and stops the foot from overpronating.
