Who'd have thought you'd be saying, "My new race-level road cycling shoes have a wood insole?" Sound nuts? It's not at all...it's innovation, and Northwave's Evolution SBS Road Shoes have a carbon plate just as you'd expect in great shoes, but a thin insole of bonded layers of wood provide the most natural vibration dampening across the arch and ball of the foot so you maintain optimal stiffness with optimal comfort. Plus, Evolution's Aerator ventilation system uses an upper vent network to pull air in for coolness and dryness, and expel hot air through the heel vent...and the Performance Pro Footbed makes it possible. And don't forget the SBS closure system that works directly with the heel cup and insole to provide a secure fit that loses no energy, but never pinches or generates hot spots.
