The Walker Classic employs a durable rubber compound to protect the bottom of its platform. It features pods of various shapes, sizes, and texture to deliver traction where it is most needed.

Shock attenuation

As part of the brand’s AMS technology, the Vionic Walker Classic utilizes a firm yet flexible EVA midsole. It serves to attenuate the impact on feet and joints by absorbing the shock upon heel strikes, jumps, and other forceful movements.

The unit is raised in the midfoot section and is reinforced by a thermoplastic brace. Its purpose is to prevent the foot from excessively rolling inwards (overpronation). Another firm thermoplastic component is incorporated in the heel section. It contributes to the stability of the foot.

Supporting the arch of the foot is the Orthaheel insert. Developed by a podiatrist, this biomechanical add-on aims to keep the natural alignment of feet and legs, further eliminating the chance of overpronation. It is topped by an anti-bacterial cloth which keeps unpleasant foot odor at bay.

The leather is complemented by a breathable polyester mesh liner which adds a soft touch on top of the foot and around the ankle. It serves to keep the interiors aerated as well as reducing chafing of the upper against the skin.
