Chris Davenport and SOLE Support Protect Our Winters Via Launch Of Signature Footbed

Protect Our Winters (POW), a non-profit organization dedicated to uniting and actively engaging the global snow sports community to fight against climate change, is excited to announce a partnership with SOLE and Chris Davenport on the launch of his signature snow sports-specific footbed, the Signature CD Thin. POW hasa huge amount of respect for Chris and thanks him for including them in this very cool project.

SOLE, the manufacturer of premium footbeds, socks and shoes, has collaborated with world-class skier and mountaineer Chris Davenport to develop a snow sports-specific footbed. Available to consumers in early Fall 2011, the Signature CD Thin was purpose-built to perform in winter environments.

Like every SOLE Custom Footbed, the Signature CD Thin features a heat moldable, shock-absorbing base layer that provides a custom fit, excellent support, and optimal control. The footbed features a 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulating layer in a thin design for low volume footwear. The base contains 20 percent recycled content and the moisture-wicking top sheet with Polygiene® antimicrobial treatment contains 35 percent recycled content. One dollar from the sale of every pair sold will be donated directly to Protect Our Winters.

“This was a fun project, because Dav is so passionate about the products he uses,” says Rob Nathan, SOLE’s Product Director. “We actually delayed the product launch a full year to get everything dialed.”

“I’ve been using SOLE’s products for a few years already, so I was thrilled to join their team and provide input in the design process,” adds Chris Davenport. “A supportive footbed that provides a precise fit and aids in alignment is one of the most important, often overlooked pieces of ski gear.”
