Danish brand ECCO developed its natural motion advocating kickers- BIOM running shoes--- for casual joggers to the serious athletes- based on a lot of bio-mechanical studies involving 2500 foot scans ---
Eye-catching- they are particularly recognizable because of the unique component lightweight PU one piece soles..that offer a layer of protection over pure racing flats.

For Spring 2012-there are new color updates...and shoes made for multiple surfaces---including a line of super lightweight trail runners---that offer a lot of traction on a Biom platform...with variations in caging and heel height.
|BIOM LITE 1.3|
|super thin TPU outsole, excellent grip multiple surfaces, midsole construction low to the ground|
ECCO developed these new kickers with an added thickness layer in the heel for rougher surfaces...and a larger cage in the front-for added stability on uneven surfaces that require less side to side motion-bumped out for the trail.
What we liked was the super light weight---and with the BIOM LITE 1.3 ZIP---an amazing fit that stimulates our style of barefoot running by strengthening foot and lower leg muscles.
