WHY ARE THE RUN ACTIVE SHOES SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR RUNNING?
When you run, the shock wave generated by each impact with the ground equals approximately 3 times your weight. This shock wave is diffused from the heel to the top of the spine. Your joints act as shock absorbers, but this puts a lot of pressure on them. We designed the DECATHLON RUN ACTIVE running shoes to protect you from shocks and impact.
WHY IS THERE CUSHIONING IN RUNNING SHOES?
In order to keep on running, you need to protect your body (joints, back, knees etc.) effectively from shocks and vibrations. The cushioning in the RUN ACTIVE shoe is designed to limit the effect of repeated impact on regular runners.
HOW DO WE GUARANTEE GREAT CUSHIONING IN RUN ACTIVE RUNNING SHOES?
The cushioning in the RUN ACTIVE shoes is made with EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl acetate) foam which is both lightweight and offers good shock absorption. Due to its position at the heel and its special shape, the CS (Circular System) technology optimises shock absorption.
WHICH SIZE RUNNING SHOES SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Choose one size bigger than your usual size to ensure optimum comfort in your RUN ACTIVE shoes. There should be 1 cm between your toe and the end of your shoe, as your feet swell during exercise.

HOW MUCH DOES A RUN ACTIVE SHOE WEIGH?
WHAT IS A SHOE'S "DROP"?
'Drop' is the difference between the height of the back (heel) and front (forefoot) of the shoe. To simplify things, a shoe with high heels will have a very high drop because the different in height between the front and back of the shoe is considerable, whereas the drop on a flip-flop will be zero.
WHAT IS THE DROP ON A RUN ACTIVE RUNNING SHOE?
The height difference between the back and front of the sole is 10 mm.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY RUN ACTIVE SHOES?
We recommend that you avoid machine washing your shoes as this causes damage to the technological and material properties of the shoe, they may come unstuck or shrink, and upper fabric may tear. When shoes are very dirty (mud), we recommend washing them with soapy water and a synthetic brush. Above all, avoid bleach! Rinse in fresh water. Do not leave your shoes to dry too close to a source of heat.
