A few slight variations on the original, the V3 HT offers a raised Achilles dip to allow use with higher cut skate cuffs. A modest increase in ankle and tongue padding offers more support and lengthens liner life. A few cosmetic changes have eliminated any excess materials offering a more appealing look. Similar to its predecessor the HT includes a neoprene toe cap for a more personalized fit, form fitting tongue, rubber heel patch to decrease heel lift, lycra inner-lining, tri-lacing, and handy carry strap. If you are a fan of the V3 liner – this V3 HT is welcome addition to your favorite setup.
