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 activities with your running shoes (or vice versa) is a bad idea
86% of fitness injuries are caused by wearing running shoes. Ouch. But why? Our R&D lab discovered that the feet move in specific ways with each sport: your stride is linear when running, while you rotate with fitness activities. Wearing shoes designed for your sport will protect your feet and boost 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.
Multi-directional 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. That's why we've created multi-directional shoes specifically for fitness.
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 point 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 forefoot 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 putting pressure on your joints. Striking the right balance of grip is essential. 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 TESTS
In our labs, our researchers analyse movements using sensors that precisely measure the human body's reactions. But because nothing is as good as tried and tested experience, we've also tested our products in gyms where they'll actually be used. We use these tests to create technical and affordable products to keep you doing sport safely and comfortably.
Bonus points: non-marking sole.
The sole won't leave marks on the floor.
Can you run on a treadmill with these fitness shoes?
Our fitness shoes have been specially designed for cardio fitness. They are also suitable for limited running on a treadmill. You can wear them for a quick warm-up on the treadmill before or after a class. However, if you plan to only run, whether on a treadmill or outdoors, you should choose a running shoe for safety reasons.
Must fitness shoes only be worn indoors?
Cardio fitness is mainly done in gyms and/or at home. So our shoes have been designed for indoor use. The rubber is specially suited for indoor use as it is softer. Wearing these shoes outdoors on tarmac will cause premature wear to the rubber. The grip of our soles is tested based on the floors used in gyms or in the home, and rubber is designed to be more grippy when used in these places.
