Specifically designed for women, the fit and performance of the women’s FORGE offers female trekkers the ultimate experience for long days on the trail. Features Nubuck leather, all the innovative technologies and is built around a fully anatomical women’s specific last. This last is built around the shape of the female foot with reduced volume in the heel, forefoot and instep areas as well as women specific positioning of the malleolar pads. The C.A.S. customizable footbed is also pre-shaped on a women’s last further enhancing the performance and comfort. The result is a great out-of-the box fit. The customization capabilities fine-tune the fit especially addressing those who need more foot and heel hold eliminating the pain and blistering that results from shoes that are not lasted for women.
FITTHE OVERALAP DESIGN Inspired from ski boot design, we created a new construction that allows us to attain the maximum comfort and performance from our anatomical last and customization features. Instead of a classic tongue construction, we removed all excess materials and pressure points from the medial malleolar pad and created an innovative overlap collar design. - Relieves pressure points on the larger and more sensitive medial malleolar pad - Allows more space for customization inserts on the inner malleolar pad, where there is usually the widest variation in foot shapes - The new anatomical overlap design perfectly matches the anatomic last - Elastic fabric and Gore-Tex® lining on the collar area allows easy step-in SELF-LOCKING LACE DESIGN We designed a new lacing solution that matches with our anatomic fit. High tenacity Kevlar loops are used instead of the classic metal hooks which, in combination with a unique rugged lace surface, are self-locking. - Precise micro-adjustability - No lace loosening while walking - No lateral exposure eliminating breaking laces - Unique, even foot wrapping alleviates pressure points
