All OAO products have voluminous soles. It is for style and design, but its most important purpose is to provide an inspiring walking experience in the city.
The thick sole provides excellent cushioning and resilience, soft comfort, and functional appeal, such as cushioning that reduces stress and fatigue on the foot.
Based on this commitment, the sole newly adopted for OAO this time is "PROJECT X," the latest sole with a particularly thick sole from Vibram, an Italian sole manufacturer with a long track record in the outdoor scene and maison brands.
PROJECT X" creates a unique floating sensation.
PROJECT X is a special sole developed in collaboration between The Footsoldiers, a design consultancy specializing in footwear design with a variety of prominent global brands as clients, Vibram, and several other leading suppliers to the footwear industry.
The main appeal of PROJECT X lies in the unparalleled cushioning and high resilience provided by the 5.8cm-thick sole.
The midsole, which boasts the highest level of cushioning among Vibram products, absorbs the impact of walking and converts it into resilience, creating a unique floating sensation similar to that of bouncing. In addition to this sole, OAO combines a highly resilient urethane insole and a natural cork sole to create an even softer, floating sensation.
In addition to this, the special design combining a wide, front-to-back, left-to-right warped outsole and TPU parts to support the footpad provides a high level of stability that is hard to believe with thick soles, and comfort that makes it hard to tire even when standing for long periods of time.
The soft comfort of the shoes makes you forget the hardness of urban concrete and the fatigue of a day's travel, bringing a comfortable sense of security to your daily life.
Comfortable products for a rich life.
At OAO, we are continually improving our products to make urban living more comfortable and smarter. We are constantly updating comfort by reviewing all elements of the sole system, insole, materials, stitching, and donning and doffing system.
We will continue to pursue the realization of higher quality comfort through the development of products that fit into diverse modern lifestyles.
