System G2 Full Impact
Whereas System G2™ only protects against heel bruises, System G2 Full Impact™ stretches across the whole length of the foot to protect against harsh landings underneath the midfoot, and forefoot bruising underneath the ball of your foot. As an added bonus, the soft gel underneath the forefoot also allows riders to maintain exceptional board feel and control.
System Flo2™ tongues allow for more breathability inside skateboarding shoes to keep your feet nice and cool.
Foam Lite insoles are tuned for maximum comfort and are formulated with a breathable moisture wicking material called Ortholite. This durable lasting foam stays squishy for a long time for superior comfort. The insoles also incorporate recycled rubber to make them more eco friendly.
e-Suede™ is STI’s latest creation and was developed to withstand the demands of skateboarding where abrasion and friction from grip tape can destroy regular types of suede in only a couple days. Tested exclusively in the STI research lab on its custom built Ollie and kick flip machine, e-Suede™ has been proven to provide significant durability performance compared to other types of suede.
To help keep your toes safe, STI created Resistek which is made of a unique woven fiber structure that is extra tough and provides superior abrasion resistance. In fact the same material is used on military inflatable boats to keep them from puncturing when dragged over dirt and rocks.
Skateboarding requires the ultimate board feel and control. If your shoe and foot move independently from each other your performance will suffer. STI’s heel lock system was designed to keep your heel from slipping out while skating.
