Product Info

SWIMRUN ESC MICHELIN© OUTSOLE

The high-vis Michelin© sole for all-terrain traction.

BLOOM® FOAM INSOLE 

The Active Bloom® Foam Insole is made using the first sustainable alternative to synthetic and petrochemical EVA foam, derived from algae biomass. This algae can damage our oceans, so harnessing it in our footwear helps clean up the environment.

VEGAN*

*The main materials in all our Vegan* products are synthetic and aren’t derived from animals. We don’t (yet) have the transparency we need over the production of all the small components (such as adhesives and dyes) used in these products to ensure they meet vegan best practices. So, whilst we believe the shoes are vegan, we’re not yet able to guarantee it and want to be fully transparent.

BREATHABLE MESH

Breathable, lightweight and comfortable.

PUNCTURE RESISTANT

The Pro5 Puncture Resistant finish is a lightweight and flexible 0.8mm layer on the sole. Protective underfoot to keep painful bits out, but still letting all the feeling in.

Rapid-dry materials stay light when wet. And the Michelin© ESC sole grips even the slickest, most technical trails. Pinnacle swimrun footwear, pinnacle trail-running footwear.

Like nothing on the swimrun market

  • The quick lacing system features a lace pocket for hydrodynamic performance.
  • The closed-cell Bloom® foam insole, made with EVA and 10% Algae Bloom® (which harms our oceans if not removed), absorbs minimal water to reduce wet weight and increase your water speed.
  • The materials drain and dry quickly, and stay lightweight even when dripping wet.
