Press Release:

If you find yourself digging dirt jumps or railing loose and loamy trails, a bit of extra ankle protection can be a great thing. That’s why we made the Launch Mid WRX. This mid-top flat pedal shoe is constructed on the same platform as the Launch Flat, with added ankle and heel protection and a gusseted tongue to keep out dirt and debris. Because trail conditions can be highly variable, the Launch Mid WRX uses a water-repellent membrane to keep the elements at bay. Laces can be a hassle when covered in mud and grime so the Launch Mid WRX relies on a BOA® Fit System to make fit adjustments a breeze. The rubber experts at Goodyear® developed a compound that is sticky and long-wearing, which we mold into our chevron-shaped PinLoc tread to keep your feet planted and in control even in slippery conditions.

  1. Pretty close to what I’ve been looking for. A midtop with fast closure at the ankle and a grippy tread. Why is that so dang hard to find? I might have to go try these on.
