Style Forest is made with our new world wide patented construction called FLOT. FLOT creates the most comfortable soft walking experience possible. At the heel is a gel oval rather than a hard surface. Under the natural cork insole is a wedge also made of gel, which gives every step a bounce. The new Italian sole is half the weight but twice the strength of a normal rubber sole. Between the leather sock lining and the cork insole are three layers of Ortholite, which gives the entire foot a permanent cushion, absorbs moisture and defuses heat. You won’t believe the difference!
