Weight-saving Grip

The entire Approach line has been fitted with all-new Asolo/Vibram®Ground outsoles featuring WaveTechnology; an innovative weight-saving texture between low-profile, multi-directional lugs and a smooth forefoot climbing zone. The new outsoles also introduce Vibram® Megagrip to the category for the first time, a unique rubber formula that provides sure grip on both wet and dry surfaces as well as rugged longevity.

An improved Heel Locking system combines a suede T-shaped heel sling with micro injected TPU lateral shells that clad the heel cup. This combination firmly locks your heel in place, improves shape retention and protects against abrasion. Top-to-toe asymmetric lacing compliments Asolo's finely crafted fit and secures your foot in place for the ultimate in control.

Enhanced breathability

All waterproof styles within the alpine approach line now feature Gore-Tex Extended Comfort Range linings. This non-insulated form of Gore-Tex makes for excellent breathability and moisture management in warm weather.

Comfort with stability

New molded EVA mono-density midsoles with durable PU inserts support your feet, cushion against impact and provide firm support.
