WHY ARE THE RUN COMFORT SHOES SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR RUNNING?
When you run, the shock wave generated by each impact with the ground equals approximately 3 times your weight. This shock wave runs from the heel to the top of the spinal column. Your joints act as shock absorbers, but this puts a lot of pressure on them. It is to protect you from shocks and impacts that we have designed the DECATHLON RUN COMFORT running shoe.
RUN COMFORT - YES! BUT WHY IS IT COMFORTABLE?
The comfort of the RUN COMFORT running shoe, specially designed for regular runners, is based on 3 elements: cushioning foam, user comfort and support.
WHY IS THERE CUSHIONING IN RUNNING SHOES?
In order to keep on running, you need to protect your body (joints, back, knees etc.) effectively from shocks and vibrations. The cushioning in the RUN COMFORT shoes has been designed to limit the impact of these repeated impacts on regular runners.
HOW DO WE GUARANTEE GREAT CUSHIONING IN RUN COMFORT RUNNING SHOES?
The cushioning in DECATHLON RUN COMFORT running shoes is provided by a sole made of exclusive, flexible and soft EVA (Ethylene vinyl acetate) foam which we have dubbed KALENSOLE, along with the 'Circular System' concept: an airhole in the foam at the heel enables more effective and uniform dispersion of the shockwave.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE GOOD SUPPORT?
When you run, your foot must be supported for a number of reasons: preventing friction, irritation and blisters.
HOW IS SUPPORT ENSURED BY THE RUN COMFORT RUNNING SHOE?
Our RUN COMFORT running shoes are equipped with reinforcements at the back of the foot, as well as synthetic bands on the forefoot to envelope and support your feet during exercise.
WHICH SIZE RUNNING SHOE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
In order to ensure optimum comfort with your RUN COMFORT shoes, choose a size bigger than your usual size. There should be 1 cm between your toe and the end of your shoes as your feet will swell during exercise.
WHAT IS A SHOE'S 'DROP'?
'Drop' is the difference between the height of the back (heel) and front (forefoot) of the shoe. To simplify things, a shoe with high heels will have a very high drop because the different in height between the front and back of the shoe is considerable, whereas the drop on a flip-flop will be zero.
WHAT IS THE DROP ON A RUN COMFORT RUNNING SHOE?
10mm height difference between front and back of sole
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY RUN COMFORT RUNNING SHOES?
We recommend that you avoid machine washing your shoes as this causes damage to the technological and material properties of the shoe, they may come unstuck or shrink, and upper fabric may tear. When shoes are very dirty (mud), we recommend washing them with soapy water and a synthetic brush. Above all, avoid bleach! Rinse with fresh water. When drying your shoes, keep them away from any heat source.
