Vasque Transistor FS trail shoe, utilizes a patent-pending system, Foot Sync that simultaneously synchronizes the anatomy of a dynamic foot and the uneven, constantly changing running surface. It starts with the revolutionary Immerse 360™ last. Whereas typical lasts are contoured on the top and flat on the bottom for ease in manufacturing, the Immerse 360 last matches the contours of the entire foot—360 degrees across the top and bottom. The Immerse 360 last is a huge breakthrough in fit technology, putting equal emphasis on the bottom of the foot, the place that takes the most impact from the terrain. It also eliminates the need for a separate footbed. Molded from the last, the Waveform S/C™ midsole has a matching contoured surface that mirrors the foot’s overall shape with constant support that doesn’t diminish over time. Layered on top of the midsole, the shape-shifting Flux Foam™ strobel customizes fit and constantly adjusts to foot shape. Together, Waveform S/C and Flux Foam fully cradle the foot for ultimate enlightened fit. To neutralize the chaos of wildly varying terrain, every FootSync shoe includes a Synapse outsole. Using special outsole heel geometry, including a combination of rounded edges and tapered lugs, the Synapse conforms to uneven ground and hard impact angles instead of revolting against them. And it does so while maintaining lateral stability underfoot.

TIP 90: Be a Mosquito Tent

Avoid mosquitos by camping on windy shorelines, rocky points, and ridgetops. Wear long pants (tuck hems into socks), a long-sleeved shirt with a collar, and a head net.
