FELINE X7 MEN – unique footwear technology
This shoe embodies dynamic function and flexibility for Alpine running as developed within the framework of the X7 endeavor. The Feline X7 offers security on rock and scree and is the appropriate shoe for ambitious athletes who move fast and light. Thanks to the BOA LACING SYSTEM, athletes can adjust fit and feel of the lacing in a snap during the run. The fit was a special focus during development: The Sensitive Fit Plus enables optimal fit. The breathable and stretch upper adapts to the shape of the foot and offers great comfort. The mesh material has a modicum of flexibility so when feet swell over longer distances you are still ensured comfortable freedom of movement. The sole construction, which was inspired by the paw of the snow leopard, earned special attention to ensure good grip. Thus, this style performs on demanding terrain, on Alpine trails, on rock and scree. In changing conditions, the Vibram® outsole with Mapping Compound technology shows off its strengths. Thanks to a mix of three different rubber compounds, the sole adapts to any surface, be it dry or wet.
This style has a heel-to-toe drop of 8 mm. That is consistent with the trend in mountain sports and enables quick response as well as optimal ground contact by the foot. In addition, the Multipad Midsole adapts to every terrain. This guarantees precision movement and saves energy. The breathable ORTHOLITE footbed conforms to the shape of your foot, supporting the fit and feel in particular on demanding terrain. The Ballistic Bumper protects from impacts and sharp stones. The reinforced toe cap wraps around the forefoot and also improves the shoe’s durability.
