Why Beads?

They’re soft, they’re bouncy, and they form the core of an innovative new cushioning system designed to help make all the ways you move feel easy—even running.

A Softer Cushioning System

Here’s how it works: Every time you take a step—or stride—10,000+ beads shape around your foot to provide personalized cushioning and support, before responsively bouncing back to propel you forward.

“Every runner faces the same problem: stress from pounding the pavement. We knew we needed a completely new cushioning system.”
