Lighter, Faster, Cooler – The Triathlon Shoes for You

23rd September 2015

Our triathlon shoe partner is Zoot who specialise in making top quality triathlon specific shoes. But what makes Zoot shoes so good? They are built on three crucial elements: being lighter, faster and cooler…

What makes a tri shoe special?

When first looking for tri shoes the big question for many is, “Why do I need these?” Well, here is the answer. Tri shoes have specific design details to minimize the time we spend in T2. In fact, we believe so heavily in the need for a tri shoe that we were the first manufacturer to make triathlon specific shoes.

Here is what makes Zoot tri shoes special:

  • The liner is designed to be extremely comfortable for sockless wear
  • The traditional tongue has been replaced with a single piece upper to make it easier to put your shoe on
  • The shoes feature a quick lacing system
  • The soles have drainage holes (because who has time to dry off before the run?)
  • They are extremely light, so they feel amazing on your feet

Now we hope that doesn’t make you think that our road and training shoes aren’t special in their own right. When Zoot introduced our road shoes, we took all the lessons that we learned from making the most comfortable shoes for the hardest sport on earth, and translated them over to a traditional road shoe.

Lighter, faster, cooler

We build every shoe with the belief that it doesn’t matter what your pace is – when your feet feel fast, you feel better. And nothing feels faster than Zoot. Last year’s ITU World Championship was won in Zoot – and that was fast.

Zoot Shoes, built with these 3 key words in mind:

Lighter – Light is right. We start with the foot, then add only the structural, cushioning and fit technologies needed to optimize performance.

Faster – Carbon Span + propels you forward. Quick Lace, Ultra fit and our dynamic fit system with BOA guarantee a perfect fit and lightning fast transition. The barefit system allows you to go sockless.

Cooler – Don’t lose steam. Fight moisture, heat and friction with Dri-Lex moisture control and optimized drainage ports.
