Developed in collaboration with supersport racer Rob Frost to achieve the perfect combination of protection and comfort. The design follows a medical and anatomical analysis of the protective parts needed to help prevent injuries to the foot. A safety shell system of carbon fiber and Kevlar absorbs and spreads impact to the foot the same way a helmet absorbs impact to the head. 12.5" high with upper of 1.8 to 2.0 mm double-tanned premium leather reinforced in all critical areas with semi-flexible Inox 304 steel to provide maximum resistance to abrasive forces. A lightweight substrate is inserted between the insole and sole to resist up to 400 lbs of lateral weight. The use of potentially dangerous plastic or metallic rigid parts have been intentionally avoided. The contoured real rubber "treadless" sole provides excellent grip and feel to the pegs. Comfort features include V-Tex Hydro-Stop waterproof lining with Outlast Adaptive Comfort which stablizes temperature during extreme hot or cold weather and a laterally hidden high quality YKK zipper. Mens and womens sizes. Made in Italy.
Optional sole inserts
Vendramini now includes these inserts with all Race Steel boots. Made of leather (top) and coconut fiber (bottom) designed to self-adjust by crushing under your feet. Though not mandatory, their use should provide more fit and comfort. If they cause too much tightness along the width and instep, phase them in after the boots have some initial break-in.
