More Info

Water Ready: All Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component, from the thread to the laces are critically evaluated and chosen for its ability to hold up after constant soaking, to shed water, and not to accumulate funk. Many models have engineered drainage for water to come out while minimizing the entry of silt.

Balanced Geometry: We believe that a foot's position in a shoe should be similar to when barefoot. This allows excellent balance and biomechanically natural lifestyle. Foot-beds are essentially level (only 1mm drop from heel to toe) and provide medium arch support. Tapered instep and heel area for better foothold and control. Wide forefoot allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.

GSS: The "ss" is for "Super Sticky" and we can confidently say that outsoles made with it provide the best grip in water-sports. Unlike other maximum friction compounds, GSS is non-marking and provides good abrasion resistance. Its low durometer (measure of hardness) lessens impact and provides excellent conformity to surfaces.
