Gel Blackheath 7 Blue (2018)
Improved stability, comfort and protection
Make powerful plays in a shoe designed for stability
The GEL-BLACKHEATH 6 is engineered for powerful players.
In the rearfoot, a wide GEL insert absorbs shock. And it works with a SpEVA midsole to give you comfortable cushioning for the whole game.
It’s designed for maximum stability with DuoMax and a trusstic positioned in the midfoot area.
And the P-guard wraps around the forefoot and protects your toe area.
As well as stability, it also lets you move in any direction with a vamp designed to give you excellent forefoot flexibility.
And it has a tough, durable sole with AHAR rubber that’s positioned directly under the heel.
Reinforced rubber/resin compound attached to the forefoot providing increased durability and protection.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning System
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
EVA sockliner moulded to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
California Slip Lasting
For stability and comfort. Upper is stitched around a canvas or EVA board and directly attached to the midsole.
DuoMax® Support System
A dual-density midsole system positioned to enhance support and stability, positioned sport-specifically.
Special tongue construction that prevents debris entering the shoe
SpEVA® Midsole Material
Improves bounce-back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown.
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes.
Surface dirt such as mud and grit can be cleaned off with an old toothbrush or nail brush, a little warm water and a gentle, anti-grease soap.
This should take care of the dirt, and is fine to do once in a while.
Do not wash in washing machine and remove the sock-liner or insole and wash it separately.
This will help make the inside of your shoe fresher. Laces can be washed or replaced.
Don't place them near a heating device such as a radiator. Direct heat will alter the shape of the shoe.
Open out the shoe and then stuff the inside with kitchen paper or newspaper. The paper will absorb the dampness inside the shoe.
A shoe takes about twelve hours to dry out. If you play on a Water Based pitch this drying time will be longer and can take up to 2 days to properly dry out.
