It turns out we can still learn a lot from the animal kingdom. After all, mountain goats spend 24/7 expertly navigating the most difficult terrain on earth – their hoof adaptations should have much to teach us.



Mega Traction
Scrambling inspired design and compound, Vibram® MegaGrip outsole keeps you sure-footed on steep mixed terrain, wet or dry.

Fluid Fit
Lightweight, flexible and secure, a lace-to-toe design combined with Stratafuse™ exoskeleton moves with you.

Connect & Protect
A tapered UniFly™ midsole provides deep cushioning and protection in the heel and greater connection to the trail in the forefoot.
