The Faint offers unparalleled comfort and support that pushes the industry standards to a new level. The VIBRAM ICETREK outsole provides long-lasting durability and grip. Comfort and support is key for a good day on hill, which is why we have added the Air Dampening, Women's Triple Density Air Footbed, and an upgraded Cloud 6 Liner, with the new D3O Padding for even more comfort for deep landing support and all day shredding. Warm feet are happy feet and that is why Nitro added their Therminator Shield, which keeps your feet toasty all day long - no matter the temps. The Faint - it's just more comfortable!
