4D Advanced Chassis is stable chassis construction harnesses two different midsole components for enhanced foot control and active comfort
GORE-TEX Membrane - water resistance and breathability
Dual density midsole combining foams with two different densities, this midsole provides superior cushioning, stability, and motion control
EnergyCell A high performance EVA foam that provides shock attenuation
Anti-debris Mesh: Tight mesh that prevents debris from being trapped between your foot and the footbed
GORE-TEX membrane ensures full water resistance, high breathability and keeps the foot dry from the outside, but also from the inside of the shoe.
Ensuring water resistance and breathability:
Each square inch of the membrane contains 9 billion pores.
Each pore is 20,000 time smaller than a drop of water
Each pore is 700 time larger than a molecule of water vapor.
GORE-TEX in a three-layer variant with a new generation tricot lining offers a very good level of mechanical resistance at low weight.
Non-reflective materials are used for Tactical use. High Quality full-grain Nubuck leather for longer wear and durability. A single layer of Mesh, close to the foot, for maximum feel.
A special Water Repellent treatment is applied to provide extra protection, ensuring that the fabric does not absorb water during light rain and showers. Closed hooks for tactical use, reduce the risk of snags from ropes, etc. Gusseted tongue is connected to the upper on both sides, preventing debris from entering the shoe, and keeping the tongue centered.

SensiFit cradles the foot from the midsole to the lacing system, providing a secure, snug, and virtually customized fit all around the foot. Protective mudguard consists of a wrap of leather, synthetic or rubber around the base of the foot that protects the lateral and medial sides of the foot. Medial protective pad isa durable, cushioned pad across the medial side of the instep for protection and increased wear.

ISO 20344:2011 - Puncture resistant sole: A layer of puncture-resistant material added to the outsole prevents sharp objects from penetrating the bottom of the shoe.
ISO NORM 2419:2012 - 2.0mm thick leather: Thicker than typical shoe leather for increased durability.
