BareTech Technology

o Anatomically contoured last to distribute pressure around foot

o Superior protection, stability

o Asymmetrical upper design works with natural shape of foot

EVA Paw Pad™ Sole

o Super lightweight

o Wedge shape of lugs assist in breaking and propulsion

o Achieves Soft Against the Ground technology through two mechanisms – lugs and midsole

Soft Against The Ground

o Literally turns shoe construction upside down

o The soft part of the sole is against the ground, absorbing the bumps of the trail, so your body doesn’t have to

o A firm platform between the midsole and footbed acts as a chassis, allowing the foot and body a smooth ride

Precise Fit™ footbeds

o No two feet are the same, not even your own

o Comes with every pair of GoLite Footwear shoes

o Provides instant width adjustment, from B to D in women’s sizing, C-E in men’s.

o Gives every shoe a customizable fit, straight out of the box

Paw Pad II Sole

o Inspired by mountain lion paws

o Mimics how a real paw works, limiting pronation and providing unparalleled traction.

o Radical new 45-degree pyramid lug shape and soft Gripstick™ rubber provide unparalleled traction

o Moves the Soft Against the Ground technology from the lugs to the midsole itself

o Geometric posted midsole

o Non-woven, impregnated plate underfoot provides the support of a clog, but the ride of a sneaker
