IDEAL TRACTION IN WINTER EVERYDAY USE
In recent years, MICHELIN, the well-known tire manufacturer, has built up a reputation in addition to their core business for innovative technical shoe soles. Based on tried-and-tested “Winter Compound” rubber, Hanwag and MICHELIN Technical Soles developers have successfully transferred the technology from the legendary MICHELIN ALPIN 5 tire to a technical footwear sole. The Hanwag development team’s experience in outdoor shoe and sole interaction and their high requirements played an important role in the joint design process.
Together with MICHELIN’s expertise in adherence, we designed a sole that offers exceptional traction and stability on uneven terrain and in all weather conditions. At the same time, it is very abrasion resistant and durable.
Exclusively available in a number of Hanwag winter models, the exceptional profile design of MICHELIN® V-ROUGH offers more than just enhanced traction and adherence. It is also self-cleaning and durable. Siped sculptures provide adherence during heel-strike and toe-off and wide grooves expel water to avoid a water film forming on the rubber lugs. The result: maximum stability and control on rugged ground or over obstacles for versatile fall and winter use.
