Concave has introduced a special edition “Think Pink” version of the Volt+ Knit, as a proud supporter of the Pink Ribbon Foundation. A great design with a percentage of proceeds being donated to a great cause! This is another release that demonstrates the brands willingness to be progressive, taking positive steps in visual presentation and overall performance elements.
The big talking point of the Volt+ Knit is obviously the collar, a first to be included on a Concave release. Rather than being a compression collar like we see on Nike and adidas releases, this micro-yarn collar is there to enhance comfort around the ankle, while also altering the performance of the PowerStrike. How? Well, the knit covers the PowerStrike, reducing the curvature around the sides. This produces a more uniform strike region that still falls into the power category of performance.
The Volt+ Knit is without a doubt the best Concave boot released to date. They have done a solid job creating a very responsive boot that offers plenty of natural movement on foot. I was able to take them out of the box and right into a training session with no problems. The fit is pretty spacious, so that helps alleviate any pressure points that you might get from a snug boot. If you are considering a pair, I’d definitely recommend considering going a half-size down to get a more snug and natural fit. I tested a size 8.5US (normally wear a 9US) and that proved to be pretty ideal.
