EXTREMLY LIGHT, WATERTIGHT TREKKING SHOE.
A closer look at the knitted fabric of the Super Leggera uppers reveals the use of extra-strong, water resistant yarn. This tried and tested method of textile processing has enormous benefits for footwear, and especially for trekking shoes. One simple example is the necessity for a trekking shoe to be stable at the shaft sides and to support the foot. However, the adjacent instep section must be suitably flexible to allow ergonomic movement.
The Vibram® Motionflex sole also has its own flexible zones and was developed to cooperate with the uppers and enhance the ?natural walking' motion. The sole is robust and grippy for mountainous terrain. Since it is particparly the areas just above the sole that suffer extreme wear when hitting a rock or getting stuck, these are the zones now protected by sprayed-on TPU plastic.
Dachstein has its own GORE-TEX® membrane under the water resistant and non-rubbing AeroKnit uppers.
