Burgeoning Canadian brand Norda has taken the running world by storm with its stellar debut sneaker, 001. Recognized as the first seamless and lightest trail running shoe made with Bio-Dyneema, the world’s lightest and strongest material, the model is designed to go fast and far, all while proving that performance and sustainability should go hand in hand. The upper of 001 is woven with bio-based Dyneema for abrasion resistance, with hi-vis reflective detailing implemented to guarantee visibility from every angle. Norda collaborated with Vibram for both the midsole and outsole to ensure optimal comfort and unrivaled grip each step of the way. The insole is then custom-designed to offer the highest possible energy absorption and return. To sum it up, Norda delivers everything you could ever want in a high-performance trail runner with 001, and we’d be remiss without saying that it looks more than stylish enough for casual wear, too.
Weight is 269 g (9.5 oz) for men’s size 8.5. 5 mm drop. Most people order half a size up from their usual running shoe.
