- An ergonomic ankle strap and a barely visible inlay.
- The easy-to-fitankle strap is made from a hypo-allergenic material with outward vaporisation. This reduces the chance of skin reaction. The flexible inlay is placed between the tongue of the shoe and the laces. The position of the inlay determines the degree of support.
