It provides a multiple point supportive surface, which is able to offer a variable barefoot adoptions on different terrains. Moreover, the formula of ccilucell makes the sole become light and shock absorbent, yet it still has abrasion resisting ability. With the EVA rim, all compounds form together as a stable foundation, which can go with different upper designs and materials to makeup the Horizon collection.
