Why is it important to choose a special shoe for race walking?
Stop walking with your running shoes!
Bio-mechanical studies carried out by Decathlon SportsLab with our technical partners have enabled us to pinpoint the foot's specific needs during fitness walking: the angle of contact with the ground, the trajectory of the foot pressure areas and the intensity of the propulsion phase.
The choice of components, the geometry of the sole and the shape of the upper mean our race walking shoes will satisfy every need.
Behold the sole of a shoe specially designed for fitness walking:
To support the foot as it rolls outwards (typically the case during fitness walking), the sole is rounded at the outside of the foot, with a pressure path from the heel to the toes.
The geometry of the heel will ensure a better angle to push off from the ground.
And the Flex-H sole? On the front part of the sole, the 3 H-shaped flex grooves ensure flexibility during propulsion.
Non-marking sole that does not leave marks on floors.
Removable insole for quicker drying. It can also be replaced by orthopaedic insoles.
A model that has been improved thanks to your reviews.
At Newfeel, we listen to your needs. That's why, with your help, we improved our fitness walking shoe. We re-centred its laces and reinforced its heel stiffener.
Tips for storage and maintenance
You are advised to store your shoes in a dry, dark and well-ventilated place.
