These shoes have shock-absorbing springs in the soles that relieve the stress and fatigue of running, walking, or standing better than any shoe available. Tests performed at Michigan State University proved that the patented springs returned up to 96% of the energy from each step that would otherwise be lost to the ground. The downward force deflected and dispersed during each impact is recycled to the wearer as propulsive energy, further reducing the strain on the feet, even for casual walkers or those who stand on their feet most of the workday. Unlike the compressed foams and gels used for cushioning on other athletic shoes, these springs will never break down or degrade. The shoes have a full-grain leather upper with a mesh lining for extra comfort, a removable memory foam foot-bed, and a one-piece outsole of abrasion-resistant carbon rubber. Each shoe contains one spring in the heel and one in the forefoot. A rigid TPU shank provides midfoot support and stability. If in-between sizes, order the next larger size. Medium width. White or Black. Men’s Lace-Up. Whole/half sizes 7-13 or 14. (16 oz.)
