Then when Hakes see foot marks in the sand, it is clear to him that the foot is actually only need two points to support the load of the body, namely the heel and sole of the front.
The design consists of a string of wide arc that just wrapped around the important parts, namely in the palm of the front curved toward the bottom of the heel and then wrap up the heel. Because of this shape, Hakes dub as Mojito shoes because the shoes look like strands of lemon zest served in a glass of Mojito cocktail.

Thus, if using these shoes your feet will feel comfortable and who definitely will not be sweating from the heat. For matters of convenience, the shoes ‘wrap’ it uses carbon fiber as its core in order to remain flexible and strong, then coated with leather and rubber for the soles of shoes.
