Bad KNEES? Run Safely Again with the New YONEX SAFERUN 950M/950L

Date
04 September 2018

The new edition in Yonex Co., Ltd. longstanding running shoe series for health-conscious runners, the POWER CUSHION SAFERUN series reduces the burden on knees, most likely to get injured. Based on Yonex’s unique design to protect feet and joints from constant impact, the new stress-free running shoes SAFERUN 950M & SAFERUN 950L release in early October.

 This new product features the shock-absorption and repulsion material POWER CUSHION and a further improved POWER CUSHION +. The very same “light and fatigue reducing”, shock-absorbing, resistant material able to bounce an egg up to 4 meters when dropped from 7-meters without breaking*1. POWER CUSHION + offers 25% *2 more shock absorbency and 12%*3 more resistance than that of POWER CUSHION. Placing POWER CUSHION + in the forefoot and the heel relaxes the burden on knees, enabling a more comfortable fit.

 Also, due to its unique, anatomically friendly, and stress-free design, knitted mesh density is arranged to optimize each part of the foot. By reducing stress to the instep surface where blood vessels and nerves are concentrated, feet are freed from pressure.

 This is truly a perfect jogging/walking model of shoe for those who begin feeling knee pain in their 40s/50s and want to enjoy running and waking at their own pace well past their prime.
