ZEMgear, the fast-growing minimal footwear company based in Miami, Fla., will feature PORON Performance Cushioning in its new 2013 product line, which will be available in retail stores this spring.
ZEMgear creates Performance Protection for Bare Feet, delivering “minimal footwear with maximum protection” for men, women and children. ZEM, (Zone of Endless Motion), allows feet to do what they were designed to do best in their natural, barefoot state – on land, in water, supremely active or serenely still, says the company.
PORON Performance Cushioning is a durable open-cell foam that responds to your every step and maintains its performance features, shape and fit throughout the life of the shoe. Engineered to provide ultimate shock-absorption from minimum thickness, PORON Technology helps to alleviate shockwaves to the body without hampering the ability to maintain a natural motion. It is infused with Microban antimicrobial protection to help fight the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.
“Our spring/summer ’13 collection will be the only authentic minimal footwear on the market using PORON Performance Cushioning as an insole,” said Christina Bracken, ZEMgear Co-Founder and President. “We are very excited about our partnership and pleased to offer PORON Technology’s unique cushioning and impact-mitigation benefits to our customers.”
“ZEMgear’s designs feature all the best from PORON Performance Technology,” said Dave Sherman, New Business Development Manager, PORON Cushioning. “The ability for PORON Technology to offer ultimate shock absorption in a thin, flexible and durable material complements ZEMgear’s philosophy to promote foot agility and freedom of motion.”
