A twenty-minute jog is believed to be the best way to start your day. Not only does it help maintain a healthy body and improve the cardiovascular system, but it also improves the functionality of your brain, sleep patterns and your mood.

Road Running Shoes (Marathon Shoes):
Not wearing the right pair of shoes while running may result in injury and decreased speed. A study found that when shoe weight is increased by 3.5 oz, a runner’s speed is decreased by 1%. Now that might look like a small number, but when you’re running a marathon this 1% slow down cost you a lot of time loss.
This is why we design running shoes, that are lightweight, for runners like you who believe in winning. The wide sole and reinforcement in the heels provide stability, the texture and geometry of the soles provide extra grip on wet terrain, and the energy response of the Kalensole foam improves acceleration.

When you are running on a rocky, muddy, or uneven surface there are high chances of falling down and getting injured. Hence it is advisable to wear trail running shoes as it offers more traction and stability, which is exactly what you need while running on a rugged terrain or nature trails.
This is why we design running shoes that are versatile enough for various road conditions. The sturdy design will help to keep your ankles stable, your feet protected, and your body safe from injury. Our shoes offer flexibility, breathability, comfort, and a solid grip.
Athletics (Spikes and kids shoes):
The most common types of athletics competitions are track and field, road running, cross country running, and race walking. And it’s well known that shoe traction influences the athlete’s performance, especially in sports that involve sprinting or cutting. In simple terms, more traction leads to better results.
This is why we design shoes with spikes for kids and adults. Athletics shoes are best used on cross-country terrain, whether dry or wet, due to their grip and support.
