New Canadian Brand’s Athleisure Looks Will Make You Feel Like You’re Walking on Air

After completing a successful Kickstarter campaign on Nov. 18, Skye Footwear is now readying to take its new line to the North American market for spring ’17.

Tapping into the popular athleisure-footwear trend, the brand is introducing a trio of unisex looks that COO Gary Chang said has wearers feeling as if they’re walking on air.

The form-fitting shoes feature comfortable four-way stretch-fabric uppers and built-in rebound insoles with deep gel heel cups for impact absorption. The midsole is made of shock-absorbing foam rubber, while an EVA cushion compresses with each step, then returns back to full shape. For a customized fit, there’s a patent-pending Loop-Lok laceless system that easily closes with bungee cables.

The three styles take their names from the company’s hometown of Vancouver, B.C., Canada, and include The Lons, a marine-inspired style; Rbutus, a running look; and the Powll, a bootie. Each will be available in two colorways.

According to Chang, the collection is also mindful of the environment, with many parts of the shoe either biodegradable or recyclable.

The line will be available in March, retailing for $90 to $140.
