Following last year’s successful introduction of the low-cut version, PLASMA MID S is a Tecnica new comer for 2020. Based on the same innovation, fit and design of its predecessor, PLASMA MID S offers ideal ankle support and more protection for technical hiking thanks to the mid-cut overlap collar design, delivering an un-matched level of flexibility, comfort, cushioning and walking ease. PLASMA MID S is first developed with a unique anatomical last, an exclusive overlap design, and self-locking lacing for optimum out-of-the-box fit and performance. To perfect the fit, C.A.S. unique patented technology allows a complete in-store fit customization through thermo-molding of the internal footbed and upper, delivering a precise fit with zero break-in time. This customization provides hikers with unparalleled comfort, arch support, heel hold and a blister-fee experience on the trail. Gore-Tex® lining provides waterproofness and breathability, while the exclusive outsole with Vibram® Megagrip compound ensures traction and grip on all terrain.

The first heat-customizable low-cut shoe in the industry.
Tailor-made around each foot for perfect comfort, support, foot-hold and zero break-in period.
Maximum emphasis has been placed on building one of the most flexible, yet supportive, low-cut shoes in the market.
Inspired from ski boot design, we created a new, unique construction that allows us to attain the maximum comfort and performance from our anatomical last and customization features.
Premium upper materials offer water repellency and durability. Gore-tex® liners provide the ultimate combination of waterproofness and breathability.
We designed an innovative lacing solution that matches our anatomic fit.
High tenacity Kevlar® loops are used instead of the classic metal hooks. When combined with the uniquely textured laces, consistent tension is maintained throughout the day.
Benefitting from the evolution of the FORGE anatomical last, the PLASMA features the same great out-of-the box fit with a full, anatomic arch and heel shape. The last is designed to accommodate our C.A.S. customizable footbed.
Custom designed outsole offers great traction, agility and a high level of support.
