Discover this sustainable sandal and let RRAT's equip you on all your adventures!
A sole for all surfaces
If the RRAT's are characterized by something, it is for having a technical and comfortable sole in equal parts. In the case of the Y-Gravel model, we find a completely flat sole of three different densities:
The first, which would be the one that directly touches our foot, is made of 4 m/m thick non-slip low-density EVA rubber, providing greater grip on all surfaces.
In the middle part of the sole, we find medium-density EVA rubber with a thickness of 8 m/m with cushioning save, that is, with an optimal level of cushioning so that your foot feels free on all terrains.
If we focus on the last part of the sole, we find the 3 m/m thick Vibram Claw. A resistant and non-slip rubber that will allow you to carry out all your adventures in any weather condition, whether in summer, winter, raining or sunny. Don't let anything stop you!
Vibram, your best ally
As mentioned in the previous section, the Y-Gravel mountain sandals have a Vibram Claw sole, one of the best on the market.
Vibram is a rubber compound with the greatest surface grip and adhesion. They are among the most reliable on the market thanks to their quality rubber and the advantages it provides. Some of them are:
- Traction: The traction of Vibram soles is due to the treads. Which the deeper they are, the more traction they provide.
- Comfort: The material of the soles is rubber, making it a flexible material that adapts very easily to your footprint.
- Waterproofing: Allow yourself to walk in the rain with mountain sandals. The waterproof material of the sole will prevent water from transferring to your feet.
- Durability: Vibram soles are known for their quality and durability, so no matter how many hikes you do, your sandals will accompany you on your adventures for a long time.
- Cleaning: Thanks to the treads on the Vibram soles and depending on their depth, your sandals will self-clean. If your RRAT's have more groove, they will clean easier. Of course, don't forget about other parts of the sandal, such as the fastening straps and its low-density EVA sole.
The perfect fit for your feet
The RRAT's Y-Gravel provide comfort, stability, protection and lightness. Not everything is due to its sole, since the fastening straps also play a fundamental role in having greater safety.
These ribbons are maded from sustainable cotton-like materials. Its bidirectional 3D format and adjustable velcro allow the sandal to adapt to all foot types, providing safety, comfort and stability to anyone who wears them.
Thanks to sustainable materials, the tapes can be recycled as many times you want, making this a circular economy. In addition to being a resistant material, it is easier to wash and allows fireproof and antibacterial treatments without damaging the material and its original color.
An improvement of the tapes is that some rigid parts, such as connectors between tape and tape, have been replaced by cord-shaped strips of the same material. What does it affect? In terms of comfort, since if you go on long walks, the rigid parts can cause discomfort due to friction with your foot. However, the tape does not cause discomfort. What are you waiting for to try them!
