LeMieux Shoc Air - Setting a new standard in Flexible XC Protection!
Representing the cutting edge of cross-country protection & design, the new ShocAir boots combine the latest developments in material and fabric advancement. These specialist performance boots have been designed to withstand the rigors of cross-country. Vented EVA mold technology gives pliable strength and airflow to the outer shell. Whilst, optimum strike protection is provided by a new impact responsive smart layer between the tendon and the outer boot. This Shoc smart layer is composed of impact responsive Dilettante material containing free-form molecules that remain supple & flexible when not under pressure. However, at the point of impact, the molecules articulate and lock together forming a hard protective shock-absorbing barrier. - only returning to a flexible state when pressure is released.
This elusive combination of strike protection & tendon support combined with flexibility & airflow come together in one lightweight boot. The ShocAir from LeMieux is truly setting new standards in flexible cross-country protection.
Rigid tendon guards are now replaced by vertical strips of Shock Impact Responsive material that remains pliable until the point of impact.
The forward-facing outer air vents and inner lining of 3D mesh optimize breathability. Complimented by a soft stretch cotton inner lining to ensure comfort and prevent rubbing.
Available in a discrete black finish with deflective hexagonal molding detail.
IMPORTANT FITTING INFORMATION:
Please be aware that correct fitting is essential for the optimum use of Stealth XC boots. To achieve a safe & secure fit these cross-country boots need to be put on firmly.
Remove from packaging and squeeze the strike guards between fingers to shape prior to putting on. The guards are often flattened when packaged and need to be made more pliable for best fitting.
Note: Due to the structure of the boot and the nature of the Shoc Impact Responsive material it is difficult to over-tighten these boots.
