Texon on the podium in Rio…


Texon are having a hugely successful Games in Rio and have been on the winners podium for many of the events but how?

Well, it’s all down to Nike, who have provided their sponsored athletes with an Olympic podium shoe if they win a medal.

Texon Reform 1.20mm (395) was used to deliver heel support in the special edition Free Train Force Flyknit, (this particular model using Texon Reform isn’t available to the public).

According to a Nike product engineer, “Texon Reform heel counter was chosen because it adds more support in this crucial area.”
