The First FITcustomizable boot

Award   WINNER 2017
Category   Footwear
Company   Tecnica

TECNICA introduces FORGE and C.A.S. technology. The boot has some thermoform-able inserts in the key areas, heel, arch and ankle and a fully thermo-formable footbed for an incredible personalized arch support. In only 20 minutes, thanks to a patent-pending system, it can be adapted on the feet of each customer. This operation can be done in each of our partner stores. It also features a fully anatomic last for out of the box fit, an overlap cuff design to reduce pressure points and allow a better customization in that sensitive area. It has a Self-Locking lace design where classic metal hooks are replaced with high-tenacity Kevlar, which in combination with a rugged surface lace, self-locks.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Design

Jury Statement

The Forge is a new solution for custom-made mountain boots. It’s great just how quick the thermoformable inserts and footbed can be prepared to offer users a personalized fit.
