|Air Conditioning Channel||Conducts air away from the anatomically shaped footbed via the inside surface of the foot and thus ensures that moist,overheated air is pumped out of even tight fitting shoes with every movement.|
|Instep Protector||Reduces the risk of pressure points and chafing, and optimally ventilates the foot.|
|Toe Protector||Guards against blisters and chafing.|
|Air Guides||Work like spacers and borders along the Air-Conditioning Channel® for effective air circulation.|
|Toe Tip Protector||Asymmetrical impact-absorbing protectors made of hollow-core Robur™ fibers cushion and protect toes at the pressure-sensitive tips.|
|3-Expand Ladies Stripes||Special knitting machines that take into account the unique anatomy of a woman's foot incorporate expanding ribs in the midfoot.|
|Anatomically Shaped Footbed||For “L”-left and “R”-right foot with integrated AirConditioning Channel®.|
|Achilles Tendon Protector||Thanks to its highly abrasion-resistant and impact-absorbing material, the protector protects the Achilles tendons from pressure points and friction from the top of the shoe. The sensitive Achilles tendons aren't stressed because they are encased in the cushioning pod.|
|Self Adjusting Cuff||Adapts to any size leg without slipping or constricting.|
|X-Cross Bandage||The unique crossover ankle bands, knit of elastic materials, give stressed tendons, muscles and joints secure hold and stability without limiting freedom of movement.|
|Narrow Arrow Construction||Perfectly shaped for a woman's foot. This prevents wrinkling and pressure points during movement.|
|Heel Protector||Guards against pressure and friction.|
|Traverse Airflow Channel System||Regulates the temperature of the sole of the foot and conducts moist and overheated air into the AirConditioning Channel®.|
|Rod Type Paddings||The rod-type structure of the padding allows air to move, so in the case of an impact, the pressure is not transferred to the skin, but escapes to the sides. This way the shock is not only buffered in one direction, but three ways and in three directions.|
