Speedo Footwear Technology

October 16, 2014 in Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Creating truly innovative footwear that’s unmatched in comfort and performance comes down to the details. At Speedo, we dissected what we do best and where we could be better to create a line of inspired aquatic style and function. Our constant strive to be better led to new, proprietary technologies, including FluidFlow, S-Trac, reBND foam, and Exsqueeze Me cushioning. Whether you are charging a mountain trail, racing in a triathlon or simply strolling the beach, Speedo footwear delivers superior drainage, traction and comfort.

VIBRAM

Vibram is the undisputed leader in high-performance rubber soles. We looked to this trusted partner for a sole with more grip, comfort and durability. They delivered with the TC1, a high-performance rubber compound that reduces slipping on the smoothest, wettest surfaces.

Our Pick: Speedo FST Amphibious Water Shoes Female

PLUSFOAM

Unlike traditional EVA, PlusFoam is crafted from post-consumer, post-manufacturing, scrap and virgin materials to create a nonabsorbent, anti-microbial surface. PlusFoam is not only outperforms traditional EVA. It’s also created to be a landfill neutral and continuously recyclable.

Our Pick: Speedo Blaze Clog Shoes Male

FLUIDFLOW

FluidFlow technology promtes water flow and drainage throughout the shoe enhancing quick drying properties. It allows water to freely flow trough the midsole increasing water resistance and drag for a maximum workout. Fluidflow technology quickly drains excess water throughout the outsole preventing absorption and keeping your feet dry.

Our Pick: Speedo Quan Sandals Female

S-TRAC

S-TRAC rubber outsoles offer water management and dispersion characteristics providing maximum traction. S-TRAC technology streamlines water away from the outsole and enhances direct surface contact to improve traction and slip resistance.

Our Pick: Speedo Surfwalker Pro 2.0 Water Shoes Male

EXSQUEEZE ME CUSHIONING

Engineered to gently mold around ones foot the same way soft, wet sand does, Exsqueeze Me cushioning helps create new levels of comfort and support feel in our sandals and water shoes.

Our Pick: Speedo Exsqueeze Me Rip Slide Sandals Female

Product Spotlight: Speedo Nemesis Fins

September 19, 2014 in Product Spotlights, Swimming

Have you seen the newest fins from Speedo? Learn about the most innovative fins on the market!

Speedo Nemesis Fins

COMFORT TRAINING

The Nemesis fin will become your greatest ally in the pool. The most comfortable fin on the market, with ergonomic foot pocket features and floating properties, which elevate the hips and feet into an improved streamline body position. Utilizing bio-mimicry, the Humpback Whale pectoral fin was part inspiration behind this unique deign.

1. TUBERCLES

Scalloped outer edge, like the Humpback Whale’s fin, creates greater surface area for water to pass over versus a smooth, straight edge. This technology creates enhanced propulsion, allowing the swimmer to push more water during kicking drills and training sets.

2. BLOW VALVES

Medial edge opening are larger on the bottom-side and smaller on the top-side. This creates a valve effect, in which water is captured on the underside and forced trough the smaller opening. Thus, more resistance is created on the down-kick.

3. FLOW CHANNELS

Channels on the top and bottom of the fins help guide water in the proper direction and toward the Blow Valves. The Flow Channels also help medially rotate the foot into the the correct orientation for maximum kick efficiency.

4. INJECTION MOLDED EVA (IMEVA) FOAM

IMEVA fins are naturally buoyant, aiding the swimmer with an elevated body position, keeping hips and feet in a more streamline position.

5. UNPARALLED COMFORT

Interior foot pocket was engineered by footwear experts, taking all unique footwear last features into consideration: arch support, more toe space to prevent pinching and cramping, graduated instep for excellent fitting across the mid-foot.

6. HEEL STRAP

Latticed back heel strap for maximum and comfort around the heel bone and Achilles Tendon area. Unique under-heel strap gives extra stability and security at the heel joint.

7. INTEGRATED GRAB HOLE

Incorporated finger hole on top of fin for ease of getting the fin on the foot
