The Sapphire isn’t only about women’s specific fit; it’s about women’s specific comfort and soul. A tuned EVA midsole provides soft cushioning while the TPU chassis provides protection you can trust. Articulation in the upper allows uninhibited forward motion, yet supports the ankle laterally whether on off-camber trails and crooked cobblestone streets. Secure outsole traction takes you from Main Street to the Mountains and back.
Fit Tip: Length runs true to size. Lower volume with a sculpted mid-foot and a women’s specific forefoot & toe box.
High density EVA sculpted arch with the goal of placing the foot in a neutral position
High density EVA deep heel cup - Provides support and improves natural cushioning
The Swiftcurrent provides incredible durability, stability and comfort with lugs that provide ample traction strolling down Main Street and enough grip under foot to lead you on the trail.
The map molded in the bottom of the outsole features Swiftcurrent Mountain located in Glacier National Park.
Dual density EVA midsole provides supportive balanced cushioning.
TPU chassis adds protection and torsional stability underfoot.
1mm EVA Super Skin (ESS) plate mitigates overflexion and protects the forefoot.
There’s no denying feet sweat and trails can get muddy. There’s also no denying the ability of our proprietary waterproofing system, B-DRY, lets sweat escape while keeping moisture out.
Women's-specific last design
Designed specifically for women and tested by women, this uniquely designed last provides an improved sculpted fit creating incredible comfort and performance.
Asymmetrical Collar Height
The tongue and asymmetrical collar were designed to comfortably articulate with female ankle motion, accommodating for the unique ankle bone locations that are often unaccounted for in women’s footwear design.
Three core components make up our B-DRY waterproof system starting with our proprietary tape-sealed polyurethane film bootie. Hydrophobic upper materials keep the shoe watertight while our textile lining wicks sweat away.
Medium volume feet tend to be standard width with some combinations of high and/or low arches and a high and/or low instep.
Women’s standard width is B in the heel and C in the forefoot (according to Brannock Device®). Patterns and materials in a given model may influence fit. We always recommend trying our footwear on to ensure the best possible fit.
