Gravis: Premium Footwear for Board Sports Aficionados

by Karmaloop Rep Code

Gravis is a sub-brand of Burton Snowboards. Bridging the gap between action sports quality and sophisticated style, Gravis was created to fill a void in the market for performance-oriented casual shoes. As part of Burton, Gravis has taken advantage of innovative technology resources from its parent company, including the groundbreaking anatomically correct Gravis Perimeter Support Footbed.

Designed for the athlete’s foot

Working with 150 kids at Mount Hood in Oregon, the YMCA skate park in Encinitas, and some popular surf spots, Gravis designers discovered that the athletes in these sports tend to have a wider forefoot than normal, so they created special sneakers for that particular type of foot.

Because they are designed for the action sports buff, Gravis shoes are styled to reflect the skate, snow, and surf lifestyle – so you look good in them while shredding.

On top of making great shoes, Gravis also produces a full line of gear including sandals, t-shirts, hoodies, beanies, backpacks, luggage, totes, socks, caps, and accessories.
