Use of GORE-TEX® in shoes
The main properties of the GORE-TEX® membrane:
• Long keeps water tight
• actively breathing
• Extremely frost resistant
• Extremely bend resistant
• Extremely durable
Shoes are dry because they are water tight
The secret is that the GORE-TEX® membrane is microporous. On each square centimeter, which roughly corresponds to the area of the nail, there are 1.4 billion tiny pores. These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, and therefore moisture outside cannot penetrate shoes. Continue reading
Pronation of the foot. How to determine?
When running, the human body is subjected to excessive stress, so it is extremely important to ensure an appropriate balance of depreciation and stability to reduce the risk of injury.
With a special insert in the sole (Wave) provides excellent cushioning due to the distribution of shock load over the entire surface area. The stability of the technology is achieved due to the difference in levels between the outer and inner surfaces of the shoe. This technology does not allow the sole to compress in high pressure areas. The main parameters of shock absorption and stability of Wave technology allow you to choose the best option for any type of running. The result is lightweight ultra-modern sports shoes for professional sports.
The nature of the pronation of the foot is the main parameter when choosing sneakers. It is recommended to determine which foot arch you have, as this is directly related to how you run, and can be a good starting point for choosing the right shoe model. Continue reading
The history of the sneakers
The fact that today in our wardrobe there are such comfortable shoes as sneakers, we owe to a young student from America. It was he who invented the first model. Since then, shoe models have changed annually, but the principle remains the same.
Modern sneakers actually do not have such a rich history. They appeared only recently, in the mid-60s of the last century. And to be more precise, in 1964. The Nike company, which was founded by a young athlete Phil Knight, together with his coach Bill Bowerman, was at the forefront.
Strength in the details
More precisely, they do not own the form of sports shoes, but one small technological detail, without which it is simply impossible to imagine today’s sneakers. We are talking about a small rubber insert under the heel, which radically changed the technique of running. So, one detail gave the world a completely new concept of shoes and glorified the creators. Continue reading
