The upper of the Gel Academy 6 has a synthetic leather construction, providing you with the stability, support and durability you need on the court. There is also a removable Sockliner moulded to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
Cushioning and shock absorption are essential when making sharp movements and quick jumps during the game. That’s why the Gel Academy 6 features GEL cushioning in both the rearfoot and forefoot, providing maximum comfort as well as protection against injury. The Trusstic system in the midfoot prevents
movement, allowing the right amount of flexibility and keeping you stable.
A pivot point is incorporated within the AHAR outsole allowing good rotation and fast direction changes, helping to reduce stress that can be put on lower limbs from excessive side to side movement. With quick movements on the court, durability is key, so the Gel Academy 6 has the added benefit of the outsole wrapped around the midsole to ensure protection against toe drag, whilst stitching into the toe cap provides additional reinforcement.
