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.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TRAIN WITH THE RIGHT SHOES? Safety
Studies have shown that injuries caused by doing fitness are due to inappropriate footwear. 86% of people who get injured doing fitness wear running shoes. Our studies have proven that people doing fitness who don't use the right shoes have a higher risk of injury than people who wear specific fitness shoes. This all shows the importance of creating shoes that are designed especially for fitness activities.
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 the fitness shoe is specific and different to that required for running. This is why we design multi-directional shoes specifically for fitness and its 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 PIVOTING
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 a balance between these two needs is therefore 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 TEST
In our labs, our researchers analyse movements using sensors that precisely measure the human body's reactions. But because there's nothing like trying things out in real life, we also test all of our fitness products in the gyms where they will actually be used. These tests enable us to offer high-tech products to everyone at a great price, with the sole objective of helping you enjoy your fitness activities in the best possible conditions.
NON-MARKING
The sole is specially designed not to leave black marks on the floor.
CAN YOU RUN ON A TREADMILL WITH THESE FITNESS SHOES?
Our fitness shoes were specially designed for cardio fitness activities. They can also be used for limited treadmill running. They're perfect for a quick warm-up or cool-down on the treadmill before or after a class. However, if you plan to only run on a treadmill or outside, you should choose a pair of shoes designed for running to avoid injury.
MUST FITNESS SHOES ONLY BE WORN INDOORS?
Cardio fitness activities are mainly done at a gym or at home. Our shoes are designed for indoor use. The rubber used is much softer than on shoes designed for outdoor use. Wearing these shoes outdoors on concrete will cause them to wear out quickly. The grip of the soles was tested on flooring used at gyms and at home and was designed to offer good traction for these types of uses.

    Muy cómodas y transpirables, totalmente recomendadas.

    La única pega es que se despega la plantilla y se mueve.

    Comodidad y amortiguación perfecta

    La zapatilla más cómoda que he probado para el fitness, tanto para correr en cinta, como para clases dirigidas. Buena amortiguación y buena respuesta a movimientos de rotación de pie dentro gracias a la flexibilidad que tienen. A destacar también el grip en punta y talón, para no resbalar en la superficie como parquet y demás. El único pero sería que el material de los cordones tiende a desatarse a las horas de práctica.

    Zapatilla ligera y cómoda. Con un tallaje perfecto en mi caso, en la práctica deportiva me han resultado comodísimas y super ligeras. Se adaptan perfectamente a la práctica indoor, utilizadas en sesiones de cardio training. Tejido que envuelve el pie y se adapta al movimiento. Me han sorprendido.
