✔ Wider, anatomically correct toe box for a stable push-off
✔ cushioned landing phase
✔ innovative energy-return midsole foam
✔ "BEST DEBUT" (Runners World Germany Spring '22)
For almost one year, an experienced team of biomechanists and world-renowned experts in running technology and footwear science worked to create a running shoe that makes the greatest dream of serious runners come true: to be able to run for a lifetime.
Our secret recipe behind it: toefreedom® and the innovative nmblFoam® sole blend natural anatomy and technological innovation into perfect harmony!
The Ultreya is a quantum leap in running shoe design and benefits from four decades of technological innovation in toefreedom®. A wider, anatomically correct toe box allows the toes to splay and perform their natural stabilizing function during the ground contact and push-off phase of running, preventing the problem of ‘overpronation’ and its associated injuries.
With its unique sole design, the Ultreya promotes a smooth and cushioned landing during the shock absorption phase and supports a stable push-off in the propulsion phase.
The innovative nmblFoam® midsole cushioning technology was especially developed for Joe Nimble by one of the leading manufacturers of polyurethanes and not only ensures high energy return but moreover continuously consistent cushioning parameters even under high and long loads.
The Ultreya weighs a little more than other, conventional running shoes and is not a running shoe for fast racing PB´s: this is due to the direct injected PU midsole made from innovative nmblFoam®. This may be a bit heavier, but it does exactly what it’s supposed to do: it offers maximum comfort and ensures a comfortable training session every single time without the midsole material wearing down quickly, as is the usual case in the industry.
Our shoes are made for those who run above reason.
Because we believe you deserve a lifetime of running.
The special women's last with a lower instep and narrower heel but the same toefreedom® has been standard for us for years and has already proven under the toughest conditions at the Badwater Ultramarathon that our concept successfully prevents blistering.
- The tunnel-lacing ensures firm hold on the instep without constricting
- The collar padding on the heel supports high wearing comfort
- The knitted upper fits like a second skin
- The outsole design, based on the principles of biomimicry of the Gekko foot, enables safe, non-slip running on asphalt
- The odorless 6mm footbed made without plasticizers (+3mm under the heel) combines EVA and alveolar for long-lasting cushioning
