“What kind of shank does this boot have?”

  • I was hypothesizing about a shank. I was saying its stiff enough it might have a half shank in there but it appears not. The neutron uses Asolo's Radiant sole and the Neutron boot has morphed into the Drifter for this year. (They changed the laces which I was sort of complaining about). It appears that there is just good quality EVA (I know, terms that used to be mutually exclusive) keeping it stiff, as well as the rubber vibram. Radiant appears to be Asolo's trekking boot sole: http://www.asolo.com/en/technologies/radiant.html
