Sperry has added the responsive feedback of SON-R Technology™ to their minimalist thongs. Flexible outsoles with articulating pods provide feedback from whatever surface you are scrambling upon up to your feet through an interactive footbed so your feet can give your brain information about what you are encountering and then your brain immediately communicates what to do about it back to your feet. The result of this feeback loop is an improved level of stability and agility you have to feel to believe. Adaptive Wave-Siping™ reduces slipping on wet surfaces by dispersing water away from the outsoles and improves the grip on dry surfaces as well. Hydrophobic materials in the straps dry quickly so you’ll feel as fresh on the water as off. Imported.
