Aggressively designed outsole

The traction of Asolo’s Greenwood GV comes from the Duo Radiant Outsole. The aggressive boots found in the heel area aids the wearer during descents.

The inside lateral section features bold designs that control pronation and enhance support. It is designed with channels that shed water and other unwanted elements that lead to slipping. The outsole also extends upward in the front for forefoot protection.

Shock-dissipating midsole

The Duo Radiant midsole of the Greenwood GV has two components. The bottom one is a soft layer that absorbs shock. It also stretches from the rear to the forefoot to grant comfort. The top layer is denser so that it can provide stability to the user. 

Another set of midsole components are the Asoflex 00 MR lasting board and the Lite 2 footbed. They work together in promoting a proper gait cycle.

Durable, waterproof upper of the Greenwood GV

The 2.4 mm Perwanger leather upper is a water-resistant component that works with the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort liner for water protection. The waterproof-slash-breathable membrane can manage both cold and warm conditions.

There is a toe cap that serves as the defense of the Gore-Tex boot from abrasions and shield of the foot from accidental impacts from the front. The lace-up closure includes metallic hardware comprising D-rings, eyelets and hooks. Easy on and off is possible with the heel tab at the back.
