The ability to innovate trail running equipment starting from a unique and revolutionary shoe that combines all the most advanced technical solutions available on the market.
This is the goal of Speedland, the brand created by Dave Dombrow and Kevin Fallon who, after two decades of designing product and leading teams at the world’s largest footwear brands, have decided to create a unique and innovative trail running shoe: the SL: PDX.
To carry out an ambitious project like this one, the founders of SPEEDLAND wanted solesbyMichelin, in the world of Motorsport, bike and technical soles took part in the project in the role of co-designer. Because the belief is that in a trail shoe the sole is not only the key element to give traction and stability to the shoe, but it can also represent the function of a structural frame, connecting the different parts of the product to each other, to offer the runner a unique and unparalleled running experience.
The result is an innovative sole, developed exclusively by solesbyMICHELIN and which for the first time uses Michelin’s cuttable blocks technology that allows the runner to customize the sole at the time of first use in order to obtain the maximum performance, safety and comfort.
SL: PDX also stands out for its light weight, thanks to the use of the Michelin Soles fiberlite technology. The sole is made through the combination of fibers and rubber in a hot compression process that provides strength and stability to the sole, while ensuring maximum flexibility and enhancing lightness.
