WHY ARE THE RUN ACTIVE GRIP SHOES SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR RUNNING?
When you run, the shock wave generated by each impact with the ground corresponds to approximately 3 times your weight. This wave runs from the heel to the top of the spinal column. Your joints act as shock absorbers but are also severely put to the test. Choosing a good pair of running shoes is therefore essential for absorbing shocks and dispersing vibrations.
WHAT ARE THE CUSHIONING FEATURES OF THE RUN ACTIVE GRIP SHOE?
EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl acetate) foam which is both lightweight and offers good shock absorbing properties.
Due to its position at the heel and its special shape, the CS (Circular System) technology optimises shock absorption.
WHY IS GRIP SO IMPORTANT ON TRAILS?
Grip is an important feature for running on trails and paths. So it is important to choose a shoe with a lugged outsole that provides superior grip.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR RUNNING SHOE
Choose one size bigger than your usual size to ensure optimum comfort in your RUN CUSHION GRIP shoes. There should be 1 cm between your toe and the end of your shoe, as your feet swell during exercise.
WHICH SIZES ARE AVAILABLE?
From 3 to 8
HOW MUCH DOES A RUN ACTIVE GRIP SHOE WEIGH?
255 g in size 5.5
WHAT IS THE DROP OF A RUN ACTIVE GRIP SHOE?
'Drop' is the difference between the height of the back (heel) and front (forefoot) of the shoe.
There is a 10 mm height difference between the front and back of the sole.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY RUN ACTIVE GRIP SHOES?
Do not machine wash your shoes, as this can damage their physical properties, leading to detachment, shrinkage or tearing of the mesh at the top of the foot.
We therefore recommend that, when they are very dirty (muddy), you wash them with soapy water and a little synthetic brush. Above all, do not use bleach! Rinse with fresh water.
When drying your shoes, keep them away from any heat source.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RUNNING?
Running will enable you to:
1. get some fresh air
2. look after your body
3. develop your muscles gradually
4. maintain or lose weight
5. improve the health of your bones

I bought these in a size 6.5 which is half a size larger than my normal shoes because I find that most trainers come up a bit small for exercising. They are very comfortable and despite going on some very muddy park runs I have not had any issues. I can't say how long these will last, because I have not had them that long, but I am hoping that they will do better than my last pair (from a different maker) which came apart after about 6 months.
4 years and still perfect
Used for More than 2 years
I bought this pair of shoes in June 2016 and it has been the best purchase of running shoes. I have worn them so much with daily workouts the last year. I keep wearing them daily and they haven't had any issues yet. I am actually considering to buy it again as a second pair or running shoes. Great support, very comfortable and stable in your feet. I highly recommend it!
