with special guest Dr. Nick Campitelli
This week’s #RunChat will welcome a new sponsor — Topo Athletic, a shoe company that was “created for and by athletes with a mission to develop athletic gear made with humble innovation that allows the body to move and work more naturally.”
This week, Topo’s Director of Marketing Georgia Shaw answered a few questions about their company so you can get to know them better.
Twitter style, 140 characters or less, what is TOPO Athletic?
A performance footwear brand created for and by athletes, committed to developing shoes that allow the body to move more naturally.
In your own words, what is TOPO Athletic?
Shoes designed to follow the natural shape and biomechanics of the foot, allowing the body to move naturally and perform efficiently.
Why should a runner make the switch to TOPO?
Switch if you’re seeking a more natural running experience via shoes that are lightweight with a roomy toebox and low drop (neutral).
What does the phrase “perfect shoe” mean to you?
To me, the “perfect shoe” is the one you forget you’re wearing.
