A tyre choice depends upon the type of terrain and the intended use. In the same way, technical soles are designed for specific activities, tailored to meet the needs of the wearer. Michelin’s ‘From Tyres To Soles’ philosophy, is much more than a simple tyre-to-sole transformation: it studies carefully the perfect rubber compound and tread design and aims to achieve the best performance as far as traction, durability and self-cleaning are concerned. The next-generation uppers and high-performance soles are the perfect duo, as they allow trail runners to have an advanced terrain control in all weather conditions.
