ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Why wear fitness shoes?
Studies carried out at our Sportslab have shown that fitness and other sports involve a whole host of different movements. Movements such as twists, skaters, tuck jumps, squats and lunges all come into play. Unlike running, which uses mainly linear movements, fitness activities involve hardly any linear movements. Our shoes are all designed to help you perform these movements without the risk of getting injured.
Doing fitness in running shoes (or vice versa) isn't a good idea
86% of fitness injuries are caused by people wearing running shoes... Ouch. But why is this? Our research and development lab has demonstrated specific ways that the foot moves in different sports: a straight stride when running, versus rotations during fitness activities. Wearing the right kind of shoes for your sports activity protects your feet and boosts your performance!
DROP: height difference between the front and back of your foot
All of our fitness shoes have a 4 mm drop. This 4 mm drop means that you feel closer to your natural foot position (barefoot = no drop). It's important to bear in mind that, if you're used to wearing shoes with too much drop, such as high heels, it will take some time to get used to your new shoes..
Multidirectional flexibility
Why is it important? Studies have shown that we need 1.7 times more flex and extension during fitness activities than during running. The ankle's movement also varies depending on the kind of fitness or running you do. These studies have demonstrated that the need for flexibility and torsion in a fitness shoe is specific and different to that required for running. This is why we have developed these multidirectional shoes that are specific to fitness movements.
Forefoot support
Why is it important? Good forefoot support - a must for fitness - helps you stay balanced when you go to change direction.
Forefoot cushioning
Why is it important? The main place of impact between the foot and the floor during fitness activities is at the front of the foot, whereas for running the impact takes place at the heel. We design our shoes with excellent cushioning at the front to protect your body from repeated impacts while also stabilising your supporting leg to help you string movements together more smoothly.
Grip and rotation
This model's grip lets you change direction quickly and easily, while the pivot zone has less grip so you can turn and spin easily without pressuring your joints. Finding the right balance between these two needs was therefore fundamental. A combination of sensory, mechanical and biomechanical tests has allowed us to determine the right level of grip and which part of your foot is in contact with the floor as you pivot.
How do we prove it? PRODUCT TEST
In our labs, our researchers analyse movements using sensors that precisely measure the human body's reactions. But because there's nothing quite like real-life use, we also test our products in the very gyms where they will be used. These tests mean that we can offer technical yet affordable products that let you enjoy your sport in the best possible conditions.
The bonus is no marks on the floor
Our sole has been designed to leave no marks on the floor.
Can you run on a treadmill wearing fitness shoes?
Our fitness shoes have been specially designed for cardio fitness activities. They can also be used for limited treadmill running. If you want to warm up on a treadmill before your class, or cool down afterwards, you can do so wearing these shoes. However, if the only thing you're going to do is run on a treadmill or outdoors, for safety reasons we strongly recommend wearing specific running shoes instead.
Are fitness shoes for indoor use only?
Cardio fitness is mainly done in gyms and/or at home. Our shoes have been designed for indoor use. Rubber is specially suited for indoor use as it is softer. Wearing these shoes outdoors on tarmac will make the rubber wear out prematurely. The grip of our soles is tested based on the floors used in gyms or in your home, and the rubber is designed to be more grippy when used in these places.
