The latest increment in the Tambora line provides the wearer with a rigid, yet highly supportive platform to tackle the trail. Constructed with a breathable mesh upper allows the Tambora 5 to react diligently to changes in temperature within the shoe. Allowing air to permeate the exterior ensures ventilation is improved, whilst simultaneously cooling the feet. The nature of the material employed by Asics makes for a superbly lightweight Trail shoe without compromising fit; whilst synthetic overlays provide protection against abrasion (a constant theme when tackling the trail). EVA has been enforced within the shoe as it possess a great disposition as a cushioning material; featuring as a removable sockliner allows the wearer to customise the level of cushioning required. Supplemented with California Slip Lasting ensures the shoe promotes comfort whilst remaining rigid and durable. A more advanced approach has been taken to providing rearfoot support, the Gel Cushioning system employed by Asics works to further amplify comfort. Incorporated to enhance shock absorption, as the wearer makes contact with ground, joint protection is delivered, dispersing shock waves away from the shoe simultaneously. Completed with a trail-specific outsole utilising a reversed lug configuration, improves both uphill and downhill traction on a variety of differing terrains. Lighter it weight than its predecessor, the Tambora 5 provides comfort and support with equal aplomb, without sacrificing stability.
