Power Graphite Sheet
A graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the sole to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
YONEX new Synchro-Fit Insole construction allows a closer fit between shoe and foot, keeping power loss to an absolute minimum to achieve smoother movement and quicker footwork. Compared to conventional footwear, the mid to heel area on the insole is lifted to provide a closer-fit between shoe and foot. By holding the heel more firmly against the insole, the gap between shoe and foot is reduced, improving comfort and ensuring the foot does not slip forwards inside the shoe.
A knit bootie is integrated into the shoe replacing the conventional tongue for improved comfort and better all-around fit.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
The YONEX Round Sole is designed to provide all-around support for quick and smooth footwork. The Round Sole ensures smooth movements and transfer of maximum energy.
