Born in the Italian mountains to climb the city, URBAN TRAIL NAKED is the technical and sophisticated shoe dedicated to metropolitan adventurers. The innovative ultra-ventilated three-dimensional knit upper wraps and stabilizes the foot. Made of premium merino wool that provides extraordinary sweat and temperature control inside the shoe, and a natural anti-odor effect. To give you maximum stability, we were inspired by ibexes, the best climbers in the wild, and created the Urban Trail outsole with dual-density rubber and mega-cushioning midsole. For a smooth and secure walk on any terrain.

URBAN TRAIL SOLE
The sole design is inspired by the hoof of the ibex, the best climber in nature. Even the smallest ledge is enough for a ibex to find a secure footing. The secret behind it is their hooves: the outer edge of the hoof is made of hard horn. This gives the animal a secure grip. Inside the hoof are soft fat pads that absorb the pressure and release it. Likewise, the outer layer of the Urban Trail sole is made of harder rubber to ensure optimal traction and a secure hold. The inner part is made of softer rubber. This offers optimal grip on wet surfaces and at the same time it absorbs impact forces.
Based on the hoof shape of even-toed ungulates, the front part of the sole is divided into two. This gives the foot more flexibility for optimal power transmission
Closed hoof heel
The greatest pressure forces occur at the heel. For this reason, the heel part of the sole is based on a horse‘s hoof. This distributes the pressure evenly around the heel bone
Smart cushioning The low-density EVA Mega-Cushioning midsole ensures a cushioned landing and a more explosive take-off. This makes walking smooth and secure on all types of terrain.
The Powerrail is an all-round plastic rail that, on the one hand, distributes the tension of the lacing evenly around the entire foot. It also gives the whole shoe more support.
