IMS - Internal Midsole System
IMS (INTERNAL MIDSOLE SYSTEM) IS AN EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE AKU INSOLE BOARD. IT COUPLES THE TRADITIONAL SUPPORT STRUCTURE IN NYLON WITH A LAYER OF MICROPOROUS MATERIAL.
This system, which allows for the sole to perfectly capture the anatomy of the foot, ensures a uniform distribution of pressure, prevents from lateral and frontal slipping under heavy use, and provides shock absorption for an excellent wearing comfort.
The version IMS1 combines the Internal Midsole System with an external midsole in a thin microporous EVA. In this way, thanks to the low profile of the midsole, it provides maximum sensitivity, precision and reliability to ensure a correct and instant reaction to uneven terrains.
