WHY CHOOSE CROSS-TRAINING SHOES?
The basic movements that are part of cross training - such as squats, lunges, burpees, push-ups and side lunges - are different to other sports and require a specific shoe. We therefore develop all of our shoes based on these movements and according to how intensely you exercise. To maintain proper form, you mainly need stability, good support and suitable cushioning.
Why is it important? When you do cross-training, you will often be holding extra weight as you move, which requires additional stability to help you keep your balance.
Why is it important? Optimal cushioning to support your body during repeated impacts while stabilising your supporting leg for stringing movements together more smoothly.
Why is it important? During cross-training workouts, your feet must be held in place firmly to make moving around safer. Midfoot, heel and forefoot reinforcements support your feet.
HOW DO WE PROVE IT? PRODUCT TESTING
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.
The sole is specially designed not to leave black marks on the floor.
