Vancouver, BC (February 15, 2016) – Award-winning outdoor footwear maker, Treksta, today revealed its newest winter footwear collection for women – the Artica Collection, available for winter 2016-17. Well known for its pioneering technology; including its ground-breaking NestFIT™ last, function specific HyperGrip® outsoles and award-winning Hands Free technology, Treksta’s newest collection offers the outdoor woman the ideal combination of fit, function, and style for winter.
According to Treksta’s Sales Director, Rob McCurdy, the three new models continue Treksta’s core mantra: Dare to be Different. “Treksta has always been and continues to be a footwear innovator,” says McCurdy. “We work tirelessly to be on the forefront of new technology, always working to improve our footwear. The Artica collection, with its waterproof suede uppers, range of heights, superior insulation, and the HyperGrip outsoles with IceLock technology for optimum traction highlight that mindset. We’re extremely excited about the entire Artica Line, which offers women a range of warm, comfortable and supportive options for making the most of their time outdoors in cold winter conditions. ”
Treksta’s newest arrivals all share the company’s signature NestFIT construction, a unique and dynamic system, which unites last, insole, midsole and outsole to cradle the feet and support them in a fully natural position. For the wearer, NestFIT ensures long-term comfort and prevents muscle fatigue. Built from the scans of over 20,000 human feet, NestFIT produces an anatomically correct fitting shoe, which also incorporates a sulcus crest, a slight ridge at the back of the toes for additional support, leading to greater comfort and performance. Treksta continues to use its HyperGrip® IceLock outsoles on these new models, which incorporate tiny glass particles in the thoughtfully placed lugs to increase surface area and enhance traction on wet and icy surfaces.
