Let’s take a look at the new R.A.D. One Training Shoe.
A small, independent shoe company, the R.A.D. (“Rally Against Destruction”) is launched by a competitive CrossFit athlete and a professional athletic shoe designer. They have developed a light, elastic EVA midsole for the R.A.D. ONE called Swell Foam. This foam is partially produced from 30% sugarcane, lowering the dependence on traditional, fossil-based materials in the shoe’s construction.
Here it is – the R.A.D. One Training Shoe – get it from Rogue:
R.A.D. One Training Shoe – Overview
Wherever you are in your fitness journey, the R.A.D. One Training Shoes are made to meet your need while providing comfort and support. These shoes are created to perform at the highest level without compromise. The R.A.D ONE upper utilizes a knitted mesh textile with midfoot webbing and a booty construction to give you a snug, adaptive fit with matchless breathability throughout your workouts and beyond.
The Swell Foam sole unit used in these shoes is made from bio-based EVA that’s lightweight, responsive, and flexible. This is then covered in a sticky herringbone outsole for traction and grip, as the TPU cage delivers stability for lifting and durability for hard-wearing movements like rope climbs. The R.A.D. One Training Shoes have a 6mm offset with an exclusive triple black colorway.
The R.A.D. One Shoes are made in small production runs having quality materials and green values in mind. They are cushioned for plyometrics, stabilized for weightlifting, durable enough for rope climbs, lightweight enough for gymnastics, and transformed for the grind of day-to-day training or high-intensity competitions.
