RollinGait(TM) is a new technology that uses a constantly varied sole that rolls as you walk, actually propelling you forward through your stride, giving a fluidity to your motion and reducing discomfort in lower limbs and spine.
Vibram's(TM) new SPHIKE or SPEED HIKE sole has a ground adaptive split heel designed to reduce impact stress and adapt to the ground surface underfoot. It features a radial lug pattern for traversing slopes and directional chevron cleats for propulsion. A wide heel and forefoot ensures a sure footed anti-roll action.
Heel and arch sit deep in the midsole forming a Stability-Cradle(TM) around the foot. Unlike most shoe where the wears foot sits on top of the midsole, the Discover wearers heel is cradled within it, preventing the foot over pronating. The foot is kept in a safe neutral position well protected.
The upper features a tough Diamond shaped Rip-Stop nylon upper material to stop snags and tears. Toe and eyestay are reinforced with fused TPU layers that form a strong wipe clean layer in areas of stress and high abrasion. The Vibram(TM) sole wraps up to form a toe bumper for added protection. Derby style lacing allows for both wide and Narrow feet with a bellows tongue to stop micro-gravel entering the shoe and a soft padded topline that fits snugly under the ankle.
Discover is waterproof thanks to the HYDRI-FUSE breathable bootie lining which is heat fused to the upper to form a single tough and waterproof shoe.
