Excellent traction on tricky surfaces

The Monroe Low grants enough surface traction on tricky surfaces, be they wet or dry, with its hardwearing rubber outsole. Built into it are multi-sided lugs that enhance its slip and skid resistance, ideal for when the terrain gets challengingly slippery. It has a cupped design, making the foundations of the shoe sturdier as a result.

Protect the forefoot against stubby and abrasive hazards

Wearing the Monroe Low means being seen in its low-top upper made of suede leather and breathable nylon mesh. It has a liner that wicks away moisture. Its front end is engineered with a toe guard to protect the forefoot against stubby and abrasive hazards. Its rear end, on the other hand, comes with a heel stabilizer for added support. Northside designers sealed both sides of its tongue to keep the shoe’s interior free of debris.
