Brasher Redesigns Supalite For 2010
Brasher's iconic lightweight walking boot gets a full makeover for 2010.
Posted: 14 August 2009
We're just back from KORS
- the Kendal Outdoor Retail Show - a small, but perfectly formed
outdoors trade show in Kendal and we'll bring you some more winter 2009
and spring 2010 previews early next week, but to whet your appetite, we
thought you might like a look at the totally revamped Brasher II Supalite GTX
due out next spring.
The original Supalite was a pioneering lightweight boot tipping the
scales at just 1122 grammes for a pair of size 9s, but it also felt
slightly flimsy with it and, let's be honest, looked kind of weird in a
duck's foot sort of way.
The new version, the Supalite II GTX has a raft of detail improvements.
There's a new, lightweight and harder wearing Supalite sole unit that's
more modern looking, has a bigger strike surface, slightly lowered
tread depth and more tread on high-wear areas. Blocks are also siped
for better wet surface grip, just like car tyres.
The upper is different, slightly tougher leather - 1.6-1.8mm full grain
and there's a Gore-Tex liner for wateproofing. Finally cushioning is
taken care of by an EVA mid-sole.
One important change is that the third lace hook down is now relocated
to help hold the heel down in the boot making for more stability and
And, as you can see from the photo, the new version Supalite does look
a lot more balanced and normal than the old.
