An OutDoor Award winner, the ALPINE RUSH LTK trail-running shoe is aimed at the most demanding runners, who tackle rapid elevation change on all types of mountain terrain. An exclusive MILLET innovation, the MICHELIN® Mont-Blanc outsole was developed on close conjunction with the world's leading tiremaker: it offers extra traction and stability on rough terrain and obstacle sections. Directly inspired by trail- and mountain-bike tire technology, the ALPINE RUSH LTK grips hard and insulates you from the ground. Maximized heel cushioning absorbs compression, and enhanced rebound reduces muscle fatigue. The superior strength of MATRYX®, a French-made nylon/kevlar base which forms the upper's exterior, enhances abrasion resistance and makes the shoe deformation proof, while retaining optimized breathability and lightness. An additional hydrophobic finish delivers high moisture-wicking ability and ultra-fast drying during exertion.
MATRYX® fabric is a weave of nylon and Kevlar yarns. It retains the foot, breathes well and is highly abrasion resistant. The water-repellent PU coating of the yarns improves moisture wicking and quickens drying.
Developed specially with and for Millet, this new outsole is inspired by MICHELIN and its know-how in mountain-bike tires. Thanks to its structure and materials, this outsole delivers excellent traction and adaptability on a range of terrains.
