Xiaomi‘s crowdfunding platform gets a new pair of shoes. Not as bizarre as your typical Xiaomi crowdfunder, but they’re pretty nice shoes. Specifically, these are Xiaomi’s latest 90 Point Ultra Light Running Shoes, built to be as comfortable as possible for those super long running sessions. Let’s take a look and see what makes these special.
The 90 Point Ultra Light Running Shoes come from Xiaomi Eco-chain Enterprise Shanghai Runmi Technology. The soles are made of lightweight rubber and lightweight EVA, which is lighter than your standard material and provides a soft and comfortable foot feel.
This allegedly makes running less tiring and keeps your feet feeling great while you run. The soles are also cushioning, anti-twisting, antibacterial and breathable.
The outsole hollow built with anti-twist TPU protects the arch in motion and makes running safer. The yarn for the body is made up of a mixture of transparent MONO yarn, ultra-light yarn and antibacterial yarn.
These help keep the shoes light, comfortable and strong. On top of that, it also makes the shoe body antibacterial and breathable like the soles.
Even the insoles are designed with the idea of keeping the breathable design going. They have honeycomb shaped holes to minimize contact, improve cushioning and keep things breathing.
The entrance of the shoe is sock-like, in that it elastically wraps around the ankle. The shoes go for 219 yuan ($32), but the current crowdfunding price is a mere 169 yuan ($25).
