The California based company just released a trio of shoes for the outdoor enthusiasts out there using what they call the Cradle technology.
Cradle is a combination of TPU inserts on the heel and the mid-foot, a resistant mid-sole made by BASF and an out-sole from Vibram. The package is said to give you great heel protection and impact control and is declined in three different models: hiking, mountaineering and trail running.
The Verto is the one you’ll want to take on your next alpine mountaineering trip with Gore-Tex membrane and special weight saving elements like the mudguard, durable textiles and rubbers. Like the other in the Cradle line, it comes in an aggressive red and silver design.
Next up is the Havoc, a mid hiking boot made out of black leather and rubber toe cap complimented with a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproofing and breathability.
The Single-track Hayasa trail runner is the last member of this trio, apparently the lightest the brand has ever made but unfortunately no info on the weight of thing.
