Omni-Shade, Omni-Wick, Omni-Freeze Zero Ice™ or TECHLITE+ are the names of technologies that have been known to Columbia Sportswear fans for years. In the SS22 season, the American brand presents another technological novelty – TechLite Plush, with the highest depreciation level. Extremely light, responsive foam provides long-lasting cushioning and the raised midsole structure eases the transition from heel to toe, reducing shock generated during the journey and increasing comfort on uneven terrain.
In the SS22 season, Columbia is also increasingly focusing on ecological processes and the use of recycled materials. Ecological solutions such as Bloom foam or recycled rubber steps are another trademark of this outdoor brand.
