Asolo Nucleon GORE-TEX Walking Shoes
The Asolo Nucleon is perfect for hiking and summer walking. The superb fit, efficient traction and GORE-TEX lining make the shoe ideal for those long days on the trail.
Suede Leather Upper
Constructed using a suede leather upper, the Asolo Nucleon Walking Shoes offer a wider range of protection to help you gain the maximum from your footwear. The suede leather upper keeps the feet protected from debris and sharp objects as well as minimising the risks of wear and tear. The suede is also water-resistant to provide added protection at all times. As well as this, Schoeller softshell has also been used on the upper to provide lightweight protection. These two fabrications ensure increased durability on tough trails so you can have the confidence on tough terrain. The Nucleon has been created with GORE-TEX Extended Comfort Footwear lining that offers non-insulated protection to keep you dry and comfortably cool in moderate to warm conditions and during higher activity levels. To avoid damp feet, and therefore dampened spirits, the GORE-TEX membrane resides inside the boot; supplying a combination of durable waterproofing and optimised breathability. Sometimes it's hard to stay dry without developing that distracting clammy feeling, but GORE-TEX keeps water on the outside while letting perspiration escape from the inside; keeping sweat to a minimum and you, cool and comfy. A rubber toe cap also provides protection from loose debris and rocks. Completing the upper is a lacing system which locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.
Designed using an EVA midsole, these walking shoes aim to provide you with enough cushioning and comfort to get you through the day. The EVA Midsole provides comfort and protection on uneven terrain, it resides underfoot for lightweight, responsive cushioning. Generous, soft and durable, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Exceptionally lightweight, the EVA ensures long-lasting cushioning to keep you comfortable on long-distance days. EVA is extremely firm, which will absorb shocks instantly and effectively, preventing them from causing any damage to the sole of the foot. Energy produced from this will also be returned as rebound, which will give you an added spring in your step.
Asolo/Vibram Megagrip Outsole
Designed to provide traction and grip on uneven surfaces, the Asolo Nucleon has been constructed using design technologies from both Asolo and Vibram. Vibram Megagrip offers excellent grip properties on both dry and wet terrains while maintaining a higher level of durability. This high-performance rubber compound gifts you with an unparalleled grip on wet and dry surfaces, rugged longevity and optimal ground adaptability. The Vibram rubber is built for extremely slippery terrain as it can form a solid bond with the ground to anchor you in place. Despite facing abuse from rough ground, the rubber stands up against this, deflecting the blows and retaining a strong shape and structure. Providing you with excellent grip and traction, these walking shoes will be an excellent addition to any mountaineering enthusiast. The rubber outsole is designed with a low profile lugs and with lateral elements in the more stressful areas. Lastly, the outsole has self-cleaning lugs designed for optimum performance on varying types of terrain.
The Asolo brand was founded in 1975 by Giancarlo Tanzi who invented the first trekking boots using Cordura materials – an innovation that changed not only the market, but also the way of making outdoor footwear. Shortly after this, he shocked the outdoor world again when he launched the very first Gore-Tex lined footwear.
Asolo has become one of the market leaders in Europe and continues to build its prominence in the important export markets of North America, Asia and Eastern Europe. Its strategy of producing all its products in Europe, with its headquarters in Nervesa (Italy) continues to be model of success. Customers appreciate the combination of family tradition, innovation, quality and fit of ASOLO footwear.
For the future, Asolo objective remains to continuously create high quality and innovative products that are at the very top of their class.
