    The upper combines suede with Air8000 for breathability. The AKU Internal Midsole System (IMS-3) is a unique exoskeleton midsole structure that combines a stable and durable PU frame with a softer cushioning layer of compression molded EVA. There is a second internal 5mm layer of EVA that is bonded to the anatomically-shaped lasting board. This triple density midsole system provides the ultimate in comfort while the exoskeleton frame supports and protects the foot.
