Military Technology Company SKYDEX’s Battle Trainer Athletic Shoe a Fit for Boot Camp Workouts
DENVER--SKYDEX Technologies, Inc., the industry leader in developing innovative technologies that mitigate and absorb shock, vibration and energy forces, today announced releasing its camouflage Battle Trainer athletic shoe for military and consumers. “It’s the first true boot camp shoe that an average consumer can use in a boot camp-style workout,” said Peter Foley, SKYDEX’s chief technology officer. “It’s designed to withstand military-style workouts in extreme conditions, including extreme hot and cold. “And it’s great for everyday athletic use: for mid-distance running on trails or dirt, and in the gym for weights and cardio.” The shoe features the company’s patented twin-hemisphere shock-absorption technology, the same material that has been used throughout the war efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq to absorb the shock of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) explosions and save lives. Specifically, SKYDEX shock-absorption technology is a key component in the flooring of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, or MRAPs, where it absorbs the tremendous energy of blasts that would otherwise snap soldiers’ legs. “Forces experienced in a workout won’t kill you; however, they can be damaging—80 percent of adults suffer from chronic back pain,” Foley said. “With the Battle Trainer we incorporate our combat-proven technology in the shoe heel to reduce heel-strike shock and protect the legs, hips and back from impact.” Priced at $79.95, the durable Battle Trainer also features a rubber outsole and reinforced toe-bumper protection. Color is Desert Camouflage. Every shoe comes with a customizable option of five different heel patches including a bulldog, eagle, star, wolverine, or shark.
