2018 Innovation Name: Julius Marlow O2 Motion
Awards: 88th Most Innovative Company
O2 Motion gives men’s dress shoes equivalent comfort and performance to sports shoes, without sacrifcing style. The technology enhances the STRIKE, SUPPORT and PROPEL phases of walking to ensure optimum gait mechanics:
Strike – A polymer air pod in the heel delivers superior cushioning and energy return to propel the foot forward.
Support – A torsion bar increases stability between heel and forefoot to hold the foot in place, while dramatically stripping weight from the sole.
Propel – Flex channels in the forefoot enhance the natural walking motion of the foot, providing flexibility and controlled movement.
