Travel Sports Training Shoe - Development Process (Part 1)
We have been working on a men's travel sports training shoe for over six months. This is a very exciting project for us solving a real problem for those who won't miss an exercise session while travelling but don't want or like the bulk of traditional training shoes particularly when on short trips (for work or leisure) when light packing is a necessity.
Our brief for this project was to create a shoe which is ultra-lightweight (coming in a less than 200 grams per shoe), compactable (to take up minimal packing space) in a clean, adaptable style which is closer to a sneaker aesthetic than a traditional running shoe. And complete with a packing case.
We are currently working with a manufacturer on technical specifications and will post some design CADs shortly. Our expectation is that it will be ready to launch in Q4 this year.
