Excellent traction on varying surfaces

The Nova III Mid GTX sole features the Vibram Frog Technology which involves polygonal lugs for increased traction on varying surfaces, including soft and muddy grounds. The sole tread pattern is divided into two - one has hexagonal lugs and the other has thin cut lines (indentations). This design is meant to give fantastic grip and durability.
