SHOCK ABSORBTION: 33% OFF PRESSURE*
…under your feet, thanks to our high cushioned sole. Does your feet can't handle any more pressure in your painful shoes? You are at the right place.
*Measured with pressure sensors insoles.
BOUNCELLS™ is the material used in the sole. It is a high dense closed cell copolymer EVA, exclusively developped for Maratown™. Similar to the cutting edge running shoe technology, Bouncells™ is:
-Super soft: around 20 ShA
-Elastic: provide return energy
-Resilient: it doesn't flatten before millions of steps.
-Lightweight: similar is used in running shoes where weight is essential.
Rebound is as important as absorbtion. Without rebound, it would feel like walking in the sand: exhausting. Rebound is energy return and make the walk more dynamic. Only the cutting edge foams offers great absorbtion and rebound alltogether. The secret is to combine high density, resiliency, and elasticity, while remaining very soft.
Measuring absorbtion and rebound at laboratory
-All our forms have been studied by specialists, to offer the best fitting.
-Even bought on the internet, you will get your perfect size, thanks to our easy size guide and to our innovative fitting kit composed of volume adjusters and heel liners. Please refer to our size guide here.
Cushion is our focus. But we worked with podiatrists and orthotists to respond to basics comfort requirements, listed below.
The heel 0.45in higher than the forefont, to spread the load all all the feet:
Despite the thickness of the sole, the use of soft materials and a smaller thickness at the front allow the shoe to the bend at the right point : at the base of the big toe where your feet articulate.
Are you using customized ortohpedic insoles? More than offering the opportunity to remove the insole, you will keep 90% of the cuhsioning proprty which are in the middle sole, as opposed to traditional shoes where the small cushion is in the insole.
PADDED COLLAR AND TONGUE
Maratown provide padding and cushion at all pressure points, not only in the sole.
SOFT & PREMIUM LEATHER
No more stiff leather that hurt you, even after broke them.
While we could justly think that using soft material could fall on a short lifespan, but the durability is at least as long as as normal shoe, thanks to :
-a 3 mm rubber outsole
-the high density and resiliency of our soft foam, that doesn't flatten.
B.Gaignot, podiatrist at Paris, France : "Maratown offers real innovating shock absorbing sole, with modern style. Maratown also meet standards of comfortable shoes : wide room, lightweight, seamless inside, padded collar and tongue, removable insoles for you to insert your personalized orthotic insoles. As a podiatrist, I would also say Maratown fit with most of orthoses, and especially for the diabetic foot"
Lucy, PR & COM Director at Seedrs: "You can bounce up and down and feel like you could walk forever. I feel like I’m walking on air. It’s a little bit like having marshmallow in your shoes!"
