This new breed of sneaker is designed to make motion more efficient and enjoyable.
At the core of the new K-ST 21 is the Carbon Bow Technology™ suspension system, new technology from Deckers X Lab designed to transform vertical landing energy into forwarding motion. The carbon suspension system is uniquely shaped with the goal of capturing body load and providing extra arch support for a smooth suspension effect, while the front arms and curved surface assist with a forward rolling motion.
The suspension system complements the SwallowTail™ heel, a wide base designed to capture ground contact early and provide a super smooth, progressive, and stable platform for movement.
The lightweight, breathable yet extremely resistant upper combines CORDURA® Ballistic nylon and Matryx® fabric. The stretch panel in the nose of the K-ST 21 provides both adaptabilities to foot sizes while enabling the shoe to flex smoothly. The combination of technology in both the upper and bottom areas make the K-ST 21 suited for an extremely wide range of motion, from casual walking to fitness and extreme freestyle moves.
“At Deckers X Lab, we’re taking the most advanced technology available and building it into sneakers – the shoes that people wear every day. We believe suspension systems are a natural and logical evolution in technologies, enabling the creation of sneakers that are at the same time incredibly comfortable and dynamic,” said Jean-Luc Diard, Vice President of Innovation, Deckers. “When you put on the K-ST 21, you’ll want to move, to do more than usual. It pushes you forward comfortably and in full confidence.”
