A spring in your step

HandsFree Labs®️ technology: Cage™️

Hasta la vista, heel-crushing! No wiggling, no bending down, and no re-tying, either. Once you step in and the heel springs back, you’ll never want to put on any other shoe again—seriously. Style + convenience? Yes, please!


Buh-bye, sweaty feet

4-way stretch knit

The top of your foot deserves comfort too. Breathable knit fabric provides just the right amount of air flow to keep your feet comfy and cool all day long. Remember sticking your feet out the car window as a kid? It’s kinda like that.


Catch you on the rebound

Flex Foam™ outsole

You're going to fall in love with this outsole. It's lightweight yet stable. It's responsive. It's all-day comfort, plus traction grooves that give you grip. We call it Flex Foam because you feel the rebound with every step.
