Professional athletes are now switching to footwear that is light, for the simple reason that it is proven to increase the performance of the athlete. There are several contributing factors that ensure we have the lightest shoes around. The major factor is due to the patented honeycomb advanced mould technology that we have used to create our heel and toe tips. As a result of this technology the tips and heels are no longer heavy solid blocks of wood and fiberglass. The upper shoe construction is the other contributing factor, it offers less stitching, the leather is finer and yet a more solid, flexible entity.
