The upper part of these trainers is knitted using 3D technology, with the effect that little waste is produced and that the sock part features a seamless design. No glue is used except between sock and sole. By accurate seating and the elasticity of the sock, but also by a remarkably low weight, the shoe provides comfortable wear. The integrated closure system provides enhanced stability. The patent outer sole with giant undercut cleats cushions every step and gives the foot a firm hold.
