Just run.

Focus + Proportion

The first step was to prioritize the proportioning of the performance.

 

How does someone run when they don't know how to run? What are their tendencies going to be? How do we break down footwear to be adaptive to an ever-evolving runner?

Fuss-Free

Shoe needs to be tough enough for high performance running and easy enough to swap out midsoles.
