Vibram® RollinGait System.
Hi-Tec and Vibram® have worked hand in hand to yield a truly inspiring technology which will change the way people think about their footwear.
Vibram® has performed extensive research on the technicalities of mountain running and walking and has come to these conclusions:
- The descent is the crucial moment during which the footwear can be a determining factor in improving an athlete’s performance
- At the point when the descent gradient increases there is a greater tendency for the foot to make contact with the ground with the heel area
How it Works
The Vibram® RollinGait System builds on this data. RGS is a new innovative technology from Vibram® that aims to reduce muscle fatigue when running and walking. It has been especially developed to optimise energy output during downhill running and walking. When the foot first hits the ground it is usually with the heel, which is – at that point - the centre of pressure. Once the heel has made contact with the ground, the pressure moves towards the metatarsus and then to the toes. The curved shape of the RGS’s sole supports the natural movement of the foot whenever it experiences impact with the ground.
Add A Review
I stopped buying Merrell as they kept falling apart too soon and have become much narrower over time.
Tried these shoes for the first time about 8 months ago, so far I'm very impressed.
They're Immediately comfortable, wide fitting and durable.
Mine show little sign of the constant wear they get.
I'm sure the sole is going to wear smooth before the uppers fail.
The edge of the sole has separated a little at the side,
but it's not spreading and a little bit of glue is all it needed to fix.
The toe of the sole is still firmly attached, unlike recent Merrell offerings.
Vibram sole for £50, it's a no brainer.
Ps. These shoes are mainly made of mesh, aka holes! ;)
Comfortable, 28 January 2016
By James R (Lincolnshire)
I have now had these for a couple of months and I'm extremely satisfied. These shoes are extremely comfortable with excellent insoles which feature a memory foam type material which aids the fit and gives fantastic comfort. I've used mine from everything from potting about to 10 mile walks with the dog and can't fault them. They seem to be well made and I've found them to be more comfortable than some of the more expensive outdoor shoes I own.
Having read the other reviews I would point out that these aren't waterproof. They aren't advertised as waterproof so I'm not sure why others have marked them down because of this. All in all an excellent shoe and in my opinion really good value for money.
Disappointed, 27 January 2016
By Tony (Cardiff)
These are very comfortable shoes. They offer wider fitting than most and support the foot well. What stops them from being perfect is the lack of waterproofing. The description mentions repelling water but in my experience, the shoes leak in all but the lightest of showers. On the advice of Go Outdoors, I bought and applied additional waterproofing but it hasn't made any difference. It is such a shame. I'm off to buy a pair of Merrell now, they know how to waterproof shoes.
