Self-cleaning outsole

Based on the Megagrip compound, the Vibram Redster outsole offers a kind of terrain grip that works whether the surface is dry, wet, or muddy. It is engineered with self-cleaning lugs which shed debris and sticky dirt during transitions.

It also has a forefoot tip that encroaches the upper, giving the boot extra toe protection.

Asolo Liquid GV's shock-absorbing cushioning

The Asolo Liquid GV steadies the wearer’s footing and mitigates shock thanks to its cushy dual-density midsole. It is made of EVA or ethylene-vinyl acetate—a special kind of foam characterized by a balanced blend of softness and resilience. Its heel subcomponent is also made of EVA, though it has a lower density compared with the main platform for more cushioning and shock absorption.

Foot-molding insole

Giving extra comfort and support underfoot is the boot’s anatomic footbed, called Lite 2 Plus. This insole, securely resting atop the Asoflex 00 SR Fast lasting board, adjusts to the foot’s contour over time.

Asolo Liquid GV's durable, protective upper

Serving as the Liquid GV’s primary defense against the elements is its part water-resistant suede leather, part polyester upper. Its Gore-Tex Extended Comfort liner prevents water intrusion while keeping the boot’s interior ventilated for longer. At the forefoot is a TPU toe cap, responsible for averting the likelihood of sustaining toe injuries.

The Asolo Liquid GV's convenient lacing system

Offering a secure and precise fit is the weatherproof boot’s classic lacing system. Asolo engineers gave it a set of open hooks around the collar region for fast and convenient lace-ups.
