Upper /Midsole/ outsole
The shoe comes in soft leather upper and cushioned footbed with Soft Support™. Users feel the weight and pressure on the foot has been evenly distributed when walking in the shoe. The only noticeable downfall is the shoe’s sole. Some wearers find the rubber outsole is not thick enough and feel pressure when walking on pebble or gravel roads. The threads on the bottom threads don’t have enough traction when climbing on slippery slopes.
