Please note that Women's sizing is one size up from Men. For example Men's US 10 equates to Womens US 11. Men's US 8.5, equates to Womens US 9.5, Mens US 9 equates to Womens 10- etc

Shoe Width: 

Men's shoes are available in standard width (D), then wider 2E width, then wider 4E width. Within NZ, 2E is popular.

Women's shoes are available in standard B width, then wider D width, then wider 2E width. Within NZ, D is the most popular.

These Ascent Apex shoes are 2E in width. Therefore fairly standard for men, but extra, extra wide for women.


Outsole: 6 Month Outsole Guarantee


Confidence that the perpetual rubber outsole will hold up to the toughest school activities.

What is it: Guarantee that the outsole will not wear through to the midsole within 6 months of purchase date.

Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.

Perpetual Rubber™: Benefit: Hardest wearing material enhancing the durability and longevity of the shoe. Excellent traction between the shoe and the ground. Non-marking.

What is it: Specially formulated vulcanized rubber.

Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.

Cushioning: Arch Support Insole (EVA)

Benefit: Arch support and pronation control. Removable, making the shoe suitable for orthotics. Also promotes airflow under the foot during activity.

What is it: EVA foam formed to cup around the heel and under the arch. Holes distributed from the forefoot and around the arch, combined with channels moulded into the bottom of the insole promote airflow.

Where is it: Inside the shoe, directly under the foot.

EVA: Benefit: Soft, lightweight cushioning that absorbs impact shock.

What is it: ethylene-vinyl acetate

Where is it: The midsole of the shoe, which is the part under the foot, between the outsole and the upper.

INSULON®: Benefit: Cushions and absorbs shock that over time causes bone and muscle trauma.

What is it: Specially formulated long lasting, soft foam material

Where is it: Typically placed within the midsole of the shoe underneath the foot, in the heel and forefoot areas.


ExoFrame: Benefit: Supports the ankle and holds the heel firmly in place, providing excellent stability when the foot first strikes the ground. A firm heel counter is essential for fundamental support and stability.

What is it: Rigid plastic material that is shaped to match the contours of your heel.

Where is it: Inside the upper part of the shoe, surrounding the back and sides of the heel.

Heel Stabiliser: Benefit: Additional heel stability and ‘hold’ around the base of the heel. The Scholar style has an extended heel stabilizer, providing additional medial stability for over-pronators.

What is it: A hardened thermoplastic urethane moulded wedge.

Where is it: Wraps around the base of the upper at the heel, between the upper and the midsole. The flange extends under the thermoplastic heel counter, holding it in place.

Nylon Shank: Benefit: Supports the arch area of the foot, and prevents the shoe from bending in the wrong place (in the middle of the shoe). The shoe should naturally bend across the joints in the forefoot region.

What is it: A hardened nylon piece.

Where is it: Placed internally (in the sole) in the arch area of the shoe.

Upper: Double Black Full Grain Leather

Benefit: Have you had black shoes that have scuffed the surface and a grey colour shows through? DOUBLE BLACK leather prevents this. Surface scuffs are invisible with DOUBLE BLACK. Full grain leather is hard wearing and breathable, becoming richer and deeper with wear, moulding and adapting to your foot like no other material. Resistant to high temperatures, resistant to tearing, cracking, and peeling. It’s naturally insulating, but also breathable.

What is it: Specially dyed fully black all the way through from the surface to the back of the leather. Natural full grain cow hide, tanned and dyed through with authentic techniques. This is the premium grade of leather.

Where is it: On the upper (top part), particularly around the toe area of our black leather shoes.
