New iteration of hands-free footwear delivers on striking style and functional convenience
SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Kizik, the industry leader in hands-free footwear technology, announces the launch of its most iconic collection to date, the Kizik Roamer series. The Roamer line embodies a new and innovative design that pairs the convenience of hands-free with an edgy, statement-making aesthetic. This collection marks another first for Kizik, with the unveiling of Unified™ technology, a brand-new shoe-entry invention from HandsFree Labs®.
The first shoe unveiled in the Roamer line is the Roamer sneaker. Easily identifiable in a crowd, the Roamer is not shy on style or abilities. The patented Unified™ technology in the Roamer allows the shoe’s external heel tech to be one piece with the sole, with no parting line. This heel/outsole combo is crafted entirely from Flex Foam, a proprietary new foam engineered for enhanced durability. The Roamer is tested to the Kizik standard of 30,000+ compressions, ensuring the heel performs like new with every step-in.
The Roamer is designed for all-day comfort; Unified™ technology allows the Roamer to flex and move in unison with the wearer’s foot. The wide-stance outsole prevents rolling, traction grooves provide grip, and knit uppers give toes the ideal amount of stretch to wiggle and flex. Removable Rabbit Rebound™ footbeds cushion every step.
“Hands-free footwear is not a niche category,” said Kizik CEO Monte Deere. “The demand we have experienced ranges from people who need a hands-free option to people who just enjoy the convenience. The Roamer line is representative of our commitment to continue to innovate and develop new hands-free options that align with the broad spectrum of styles that our customers desire. At Kizik, it’s not a choice between form and function; we deliver on both.”
The Roamer is available in men’s and women’s sizes, in four colorways: black, fawn, sand, and tidepool, available at www.kizik.com
Kizik Shoes Put Themselves on Feet, No Bending, Sitting or Hands Required
Anyone who has ever put on a pair of sneakers has experienced the many frustrations that come with wearing them. Laces must be loosened, you bend down, maybe even sit down, wiggle your foot in while pulling on the back, squash your fingers shoving your heel in, adjust the tongue and tie the laces. Finally, the shoe is on, and hopefully you haven’t tied it too loose or too tight. Kizik has eliminated the hassle of putting on shoes with hands-free footwear technology.
Now, anyone can put on shoes quickly and easily. The secret to the science of how Kizik footwear works is in the heel arc or cage. As you slide your foot into the shoe, the internal structure of the heel compresses and then, once your foot is in, it springs back into place, securing the shoe without you ever having to touch it. Kizik shoes aren’t just slipped on like a clog or a flip flop, the patented design ensures they are completely on. The hands-free footwear technology makes life easier for everyone; and for people who usually need assistance lacing up shoes because of disabilities, arthritis or other medical conditions, pregnancy, or aging, Kizik is a game-changer.
“We stand on the intersection of a changing industry, changing consumer trends and a better way to make and put on shoes,” said Kizik CEO Monte Deere. “Rather than find ‘a way’ or ‘the way’ to make hands-free shoes, we have continued our founder’s quest to find every way to simplify the way people put on their shoes. Our relentless culture of innovation has driven us to introduce dozens of groundbreaking hands-free technologies. And we will never tire of seeing our customers experience the life-changing moment when they put on their first pair of Kiziks.”
Kizik hands-free shoes are currently available for men and women in a variety of styles, colorways and two widths. From the athletic-inspired Athens shoe with a Rabbit Foam™ outsole and exterior heel cage, to the classic leather sneaker style Vegas shoes, and the sock-like comfort of the Madrid Eco-Knit with a 4-way knit upper, the toughest choice will be which pair to buy first.
