Our newest innovation, the UltraGlide offers Friction Free running for peace of mind when running.
Because friction can make or break a race or training run, Balega has stepped it up in a quest to eliminate ?hot spots?; a pre-blister state that can lead to the formation of a painful blister.
- Strategically placed, varied density cushioning pads, designed to protect the most vulnerable weight bearing areas of the foot from blisters.
- Balega?s proprietary Drynamix? fibers which wick moisture away from the skin, thereby reducing the friction potential and mechanical stress in the heel and ball of the foot, keeping feet cool and dry.
- Friction-free yarn that wraps around the first metatarsal head to the first toe joint to account for bunions or arthritic deformities.
- Anatomically-shaped left/right construction with seamless toes to minimize exposure to blisters;
- Heel tab to protect skin from blisters commonly caused by the friction of footwear near the Achilles tendon.
- Cushioned ?V? to provide comfort from lace pressure
