Product Details:

The Scholar is a true ‘sports shoe in disguise’: a formal school shoe packed with stability features from the heel through to the midfoot, however remaining responsive, cushioned and durable for active students. The Scholar is more stable, more formal looking, and more flexible than the Apex. Now available in 4 widths in senior and youth, on two outsole platforms, delivering true and credible width variation for a perfect fit.

'Sports Shoes in Disguise'

Kids don’t walk they run… At Ascent we understand kids are hard on their school shoes, that is why we have a 6 month rubber outsole guarantee.

Australasian Podiatry Council (APodC) Endorsed


  • 6 Month Outsole Guarantee

    Benefit: Confidence that the perpetual rubber outsole will hold up to the toughest school activities.

    What is it: Guarantee that the outsole will not wear through to the midsole within 6 months of purchase date.

    Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.

  • Perpetual Rubber™

    Benefit: Hardest wearing material enhancing the durability and longevity of the shoe. Excellent traction between the shoe and the ground. Non-marking.

    What is it: Specially formulated vulcanized rubber.

    Where is it: On the bottom of the shoe where it contacts the ground.


  • Arch Support Insole (BUNGEE)

    Benefit: Arch support insole with increased arch support and more cushioning. Removable, and so able to be replaced with orthotics if needed.

    What is it: Specially formulated BUNGEE foam formed to cup around the heel and under the arch (thicker under the arch than our normal arch support insole providing more support). Holes distributed from the forefoot and around the arch, combined with channels moulded into the bottom of the insole promote airflow.

    Where is it: Inside the shoe, directly under the foot.

  • EVA

    Benefit: Soft, lightweight cushioning that absorbs impact shock.

    What is it: ethylene-vinyl acetate

    Where is it: The midsole of the shoe, which is the part under the foot, between the outsole and the upper.


    Benefit: Cushions and absorbs shock that over time causes bone and muscle trauma.

    What is it: Specially formulated long lasting, soft foam material

    Where is it: Typically placed within the midsole of the shoe underneath the foot, in the heel and forefoot areas.


    Benefit: Cushions and protects the area directly underneath the foot. Assists in keeping the foot cool, and controlling sweat. Anti-bacterial, controlling odor.

    What is it: Open cell soft urethane foam.

    Where is it: Used in insoles or directly underneath the insole (inside the shoe), and is full length from toe to heel.


  • CRIB™ Midfoot Stabiliser

    Benefit: Supports the arch area of the foot (midfoot), and reduces stress on the ligaments that often cause fatigue and pain.

    What is it: Hard, moulded thermoplastic (TPU or Nylon) or hardened rubber.

    Where is it: Midfoot region of the outsole of the shoe.

  • ExoFrame

    Benefit: Supports the ankle and holds the heel firmly in place, providing excellent stability when the foot first strikes the ground. A firm heel counter is essential for fundamental support and stability.

    What is it: Rigid plastic material that is shaped to match the contours of your heel.

    Where is it: Inside the upper part of the shoe, surrounding the back and sides of the heel.

  • Heel Stabiliser

    Benefit: Additional heel stability and ‘hold’ around the base of the heel. The Scholar style has an extended heel stabilizer, providing additional medial stability for over-pronators.

    What is it: A hardened thermoplastic urethane moulded wedge.

    Where is it: Wraps around the base of the upper at the heel, between the upper and the midsole. The flange extends under the thermoplastic heel counter, holding it in place.

  • Nylon Shank

    Benefit: Supports the arch area of the foot, and prevents the shoe from bending in the wrong place (in the middle of the shoe). The shoe should naturally bend across the joints in the forefoot region.

    What is it: A hardened nylon piece.

    Where is it: Placed internally (in the sole) in the arch area of the shoe.


  • Double Black Full Grain Leather

    Benefit: Have you had black shoes that have scuffed the surface and a grey colour shows through? DOUBLE BLACK leather prevents this. Surface scuffs are invisible with DOUBLE BLACK. Full grain leather is hard wearing and breathable, becoming richer and deeper with wear, molding and adapting to your foot like no other material. Resistant to high temperatures, resistant to tearing, cracking, and peeling. It’s naturally insulating, but also breathable.

    What is it: Specially dyed fully black all the way through from the surface to the back of the leather. Natural full grain cow hide, tanned and dyed through with authentic techniques. This is the premium grade of leather.

    Where is it: On the upper (top part), particularly around the toe area of our black leather shoes.

  • Fusion Aglet™

    Benefit: Dramatically increases the longevity of the shoelace.

    What is it: Normally the shoelace has a plastic sheath surrounding the end of it. However, this typically splits, cracks and falls off, leaving a frayed shoelace. The Fusion Aglet fuses the actual threads within the lace together, negating the likelihood of the tips fraying.

    Where is it: An Aglet is the tip of the shoelace.
