(Hong Kong, 28 December 2017) ANTA Sports Products Limited (“ANTA Sports” or “the Company”, stock code: 2020), a leading sportswear brand in China, is pleased to announce the official launch of the first running shoes featuring A-FLASHFOAM, a self-developed shoe sole technology. The new shoes were introduced at the “Turn U ON” launch event by Zheng Yexin, the Company’s Head of Marketing for running sportswear and Zhang Jike, China’s table tennis Olympic champion at Shenzhen Bay Sports Center.
A-FLASHFOAM Running Shoes feature the latest breathable membrane technology knitting the most advanced material into a one-piece form-fitting and virtually seamless shoe upper to improve air permeation, while constructing a perfect fit for the foot. Midsoles of A-FLASHFOAM are made of “FlashFoam”, a material specifically designed to absorb the downward impact created by running steps. The addition of FlashFoam effectively allows runners to reach a higher speed while reducing the potential for physical injury by softening the landing impact. Aside from these features, the shoe soles are striated in an irregular and oval shape, together with wavy and convex lateral design creating a superlight and durable rubber that can maximize traction and balance landing impact, ultimately increasing stability and creating an invigorating experience for the runners.
Zheng Yexin, of ANTA Sports commented, “Going forward we will extend the application of A-FLASHFOAM technology to more products, allowing more consumers to experience the power of this new technology.”
