Garmont has launched a new active travel shoe, called Tikal, using coconut, cork and cotton, combined with Michelin's sole technology. Tikal, in Guatemala, is the most extensive of the ancient Maya cities. The name has been chosen to evoke the return to nature and its roots. The footbed of the shoe is of coconut hair and cotton, to deliver optimal moisture wicking, while the cork insole board is meant to provide natural comfort. Cork, in combination with EVA, is also used in the midsole. According to Garmont, these two components work together to generate optimal comfort and stability for walking. Finally, the Michelin Cross Terrain sole is supposed to offer great adaptability, stability and traction power on rough or varying terrains.
