Updates to Vionic Ngage 1.0

  • The Vionic Ngage 1.0 is an orthotic walking shoe designed for comfort and dynamic motion. It is equipped with a synergistic insole to keep the wearers always on the go.
  • The upper of the shoe has been man-made from a synthetic textile material. It gives the foot a flexible and breathable feel with every step.
  • The footbed, the midsole, and the outsole make up one single dual-density platform. It is meant to improve energetic function. They are made from the proprietary EVA compound. Meanwhile, the footbed is lined with Memory Foam for a plush underfoot sensation.
  • The insole also features the 1st Ray Technology, which steadies the forefoot by enhancing pliability beneath the first metatarsal bones of the foot. It is meant for those suffering from forefoot sensitivity or soreness.

Vionic Ngage 1.0 size and fit

The Vionic Ngage 1.0 is tailored to suit the foot dimensions and biomechanics of men. The sizes on-hand run from US 7 to 13 with half sizes ranging from 8.5 to 11.5. The model is reported to run small, which is why it is advisable to go a half size larger than their normal size. It comes in just one width option, which is the D - Medium.

For better comfort experience, its manufacturer suggests wearing the footwear for just a few hours for the first few days to allow the feet to adapt to its level of orthotic support. The pair will eventually be broken in after a week or two.

Outsole

The Vionic Ngage 1.0 is part of the single dual-density platform that is made of other parts, such as the footbed and the midsole, for an enhanced synergistic function. It is made of the proprietary EVA compound with rubber. It is designed to provide a steady grip on different types of surfaces.

Midsole

The midsole of the Vionic Ngage 1.0 is co-molded with the footbed and the outsole to make up a dual-density platform for a better dynamic function. It is created from a proprietary EVA compound for shock absorption and support.

The footbed is made of the same material but also uses a Memory Foam lining to give a pleasant underfoot feel. It is also equipped with the 1st Ray Technology. It boosts flexibility in the forefoot to promote natural foot flexion. It is ideal for those experiencing foot pains and sensitivities.

Upper

The Vionic Ngage 1.0 has an upper that is man-made with a synthetic mesh fabric. It is created to grant the foot the freedom of movement while allowing air to circulate throughout the foot chamber.

Synthetic overlays wrap around the forefoot, the front panel, and the rearfoot area. It is to reinforce these areas for support.

A lace-up closure locks the foot down to keep it from moving inside the shoe. It also allows the user to adjust the shoelaces tighter for better fit and lateral support.
