To make this possible, we have given the forefoot slightly more room. The toes and ball of the foot have excellent power transfer to the sole, but still enjoy good freedom of movement and space. With its five different lasts for five different fits – Normal, Narrow and Straight Fit Extra for women, Normal and Straight Fit Extra for Men – the Banks covers a wide spectrum of foot shapes.
All its high-quality materials and components are selected for durability and functionality
Its lace hooks are made from robust cast metal. On the inside, wearers can choose from a waterproof, breathable membrane from our long-standing partner Gore-Tex or a soft, supple leather lining.
When it comes to the sole, we have made two significant improvements
In addition, the new Vibram outsole (Endurance Pro) is made of a tried-and-tested rubber compound, but has improved tread. The contact surfaces at the forefoot and heel are slightly larger to provide maximum stability.
