The Individual Comfort System from Bates can be adjusted for each individual's unique comfort tastes and requirements. The dial technology offers an effective way for consumers to define all-day comfort on their own terms. The adjustable comfort dial is built directly into the midsole of the shoe and is easily rotated to rest at one of four zones: the Firm Zone increases energy return and maximizes all-day support' the Outward Zone reduces outward tilt and encourages natural walking motion and stability; the Cushion Zone increases heel cushioning and maximizes shock absorption; and the Inward Zone reduces inward tilt and encourages natural walking motion and stability.
The Comfort System is available in:
- Delta Sport
- Delta Trainer
- Delta-8, GORE-TEX Side Zip
- Delta-9 GORE-TEX Side Zip (pictured)
- Delta-9, Desert Tan
