The outsole is made from aramid fibers, better known as Kevlar. Usually used in bullet proof vests, this technical material is combined with other ingredients to give the Ballistic range its name. The outsole withstands the sharpest shells and nastiest rocks. A smart design around the side and upper foot stabilizes and secures the foot from all sides.

Available in various thicknesses, all Ballistic footwear is lined with Plasma Plush 2.0 on the inside. Known from being used in premium
wetsuits, this lining keeps your feet toasty warm when others have to finish the session early due to frozen feet. To prevent water flush, an ergonomic velcro wraps the boots comfortably.
