This rugged thong cradles your foot with a molded topsole and extra-wide strap.
You don't want to bring a knife to a gunfight, but you also don't want to bring a gun to a pillow fight (that would just be weird). Durabrasion Rubber gives you a solid balance of performance and durability without being overkill for everyday activities.
You wouldn't ride a bike without a seat. The same logic applies for Shoc Pad™ technology, which will give you a smooth ride without inhibiting your performance.
