What's zero drop?

The drop of a shoe is the difference in sole height between the forefoot and the heel. Scientific studies conducted by our research lab (the SportsLab) have shown that a zero drop allows for a more natural stride, similar to a barefoot running stride. This natural stride allows for better absorption of shock waves when running and strengthens kids' muscles and tendons in the long term.

What about the natural stride?

In order to make the stride natural and as similar as possible to running barefoot, the Flex Run shoe uses the following 4 criteria: - A zero drop and flexibility, so that the middle of the foot strikes the ground first, rather than the heel - Low weight for a smoother stride - An anatomical shape to reduce the stresses of the shoe on the foot Result: The energy from the ground contact is transmitted to the muscles at the back of the legs, which absorb vibrations better.

A design chosen for kids and based on parents' feedback.

For these shoes, our team focused on the needs of budding athletes and their parents' feedback: - The full-length rubber contact patch increases its grip - The rip-tab allows kids to get their shoes on and off unaided - The laces and strap effectively retain kids' feet - Reinforcements in the front and back of the upper offer kids more support and protection

Why choose a breathable kids' shoe?

SportsLab, our research laboratory, revealed that kids' feet sweat a lot more than adults' during sports. That's why all the running shoes are designed with a breathable fabric on the upper (mesh) in order to eliminate perspiration more effectively and prevent unpleasant odors. This material, which is lighter than faux leather, is more comfortable and lighter for running!

Product testing

Driss, our test engineer, tested these shoes on a group of 10 kids during a session in which they ran, threw, and jumped for 2 hours on a range of surfaces including grass, asphalt, and gym floor. They particularly appreciated the comfort and rubber anti-slip pad, as well as the ease with which they could put on the shoes themselves and the light weight for faster running. This test complements those carried out in the lab and allows us to validate our products.

Storage instructions

For more durability, we recommend leaving the shoes to air-dry.
