So what's new?

Improved traction on a variety of surfaces

The introduction ofVibram® Megagrip across the Radiant Hiking collection notably increases the grip performance and versatility of the Radiant outsole. This remarkable rubber compound was purposely developed to offer sure grip on a variety of wet surfaces without compromising durability - so hikers could feel more confident traversing smooth wet slabs and paving. Radiant's grippy radial lug pattern remains unchanged with deep, widely spaced lugs providing excellent traction and dirt shedding capabilities. The aggressive heal cleats of the Aso-Brake system enhance control on descent, whilst the forefoot design optimises pronation control and support. Dual density EVA midsoles provide valuable underfoot protection and long-term durability.

Comfort and Fit

The Greenwood GV benefits from a newly designed ankle cuff with cushioned lycra inserts improving articulation around the ankle joint and soft-touch microfiber linings adding comfort.

Other details

The Greenwood GV maintains the Tribes clean lines and classic appearance with one-piece, water-resistant Perwanger leather uppers, hard-ware lacing and a moulded-in rubber toe cap. Gore-Tex Performance linings provide 3-Season waterproof protection. All Asolo styles are built on gender specific lasts that respect the morphology of the foot in order to achieve a precise, supportive fit.
