don't see an update function so here is more: Salewa snow trainer has a similar technology sole, ice grip by Vibram. these appear to have been discontinued so good discounts can be had on these as well. The Couloir continues on for 2014 with some changes, The Frasson multifunction is used in a couple of other models, but I see nothing else currently sporting the Vibram. ??? I am wondering at this point about traction on wet rocks and logs, etc. An area where rubber soles are decidedly lacking, some more than others depending on the compound and pattern. I see some mention of other "impregnated rubber" technologies. Seems like there should be a market for more hiking oriented shoes with better function in this area. do industry reps ever read this stuff?
