Minimalist running is steadily becoming one of the most popular trends among runners. Many runners praise the strengthening and toning benefits associated with minimalist running, but caution that this approach should be accompanied by proper conditioning to prevent unnecessary injuries. For this, we introduce Nada.
Made by Somnio, Nada is an ultra-lightweight, 3.5 ounce shoe packaged in a minimalist running starter kit designed to increase foot strength, improve posture an alignment, increase running efficiency and reduce injury.
Phil Wharton, world-renowned musculoskeletal therapist and stretching guru, developed a training DVD to help runners transition safely and pain-free into minimalist running. Each 3.5 ounce pair of Nadas comes packaged with Wharton’s training DVD and a backpack in a minimalist running starter kit.
The Nada shoe retails for $80 and is ideal for runners, yoga practitioners, walkers and anyone wanting a casual shoe that feels like they are wearing “nothing”. Nada shoes feature an ultra-thin six millimeter midsole to protect the foot, breathable stretch mesh to move with the foot and to accommodate a wide variety of foot shapes, zero heel to midsole drop for a natural foot position and heel and forefoot roadblock rubber.
