Weaver carries a lightweight yet sticky sole

What offers enough surface traction on a variety of surfaces in the Weaver is the Science Friction 3.0 outsole.

This lightweight yet sticky component comes at 4.2 mm in thickness. Its rear part has grippy vertical ridges, which provide extra slip and skid resistance on sideway smears with the heel.

Mad Rock employs a durable midsole for the Weaver

Mad Rock designers opted to give the Weaver a heavy-duty midsole (of a polycarbonate sort) for added support underfoot. They gave it an overall thickness of 1.8 mm.

Weaver from Mad Rock comes with an armored upper

The Mad Rock Weaver’s below-the-ankle upper, also known as FloKnit, is made of long-wearing knit fabric. It is built with heat-infused TPU or thermoplastic polyurethane for abrasion protection and enhanced structural integrity.

Owners can get in and out of its confines with relative ease using its trio of synthetic pull loops.

Its bottom section comes engineered with Science Friction R2—a rubberized covering that grants adhesive power on contact.

Mad Rock Weaver heel zone

It also has a rubber heel zone with treads, which enables the heel to latch on to curves and like projections with enough stickiness.

Rounding out all things upper in the Weaver is the rock shoe’s strappy closure system.
