The first heat-customizable low-cut shoe in the industry.
Tailor-made around each foot for perfect comfort, support, foot-hold and zero break-in period.
SELF LOCKING LACING
We designed an innovative lacing solution that matches our anatomic fit. High tenacity Kevlar® loops are used instead of the classic metal hooks. When combined with the uniquely textured laces, consistent tension is maintained throughout the day.
Maximum emphasis has been placed on building one of the most flexible, yet supportive, low-cut shoes in the market.
Inspired from ski boot design, we created a new, unique construction that allows us to attain the maximum comfort and performance from our anatomical last and customization features.
Premium upper materials offer water repellency and durability. Gore-tex® liners provide the ultimate combination of waterproofness and breathability.
THE ULTIMATE ANATOMICAL LAST
Benefitting from the evolution of the FORGE anatomical last, the PLASMA features the same great out-of-the box fit with a full, anatomic arch and heel shape. The last is designed to accommodate our C.A.S. customizable footbed.
Custom designed outsole offers great traction, agility and a high level of support.
