We all learn to walk, but do we ever learn how to run?

30% of runners get injured each year. Through years of bad habits, poorly matched footwear and technique, most runners learn to land heel first when they run, causing excessive shock to the body and reducing efficiency. 

CimAlp has created the first progressive drop trail running shoe, designed to improve performance without discomfort.


864 Drop Control : RUN BETTER. SAFER. LONGER.

Many running shoes have a raised heel for comfort and padding, but this results in runners landing heel first. Reducing the height of the heel, or the drop, allows the runner to land midfoot, improving natural damping and encouraging a more efficient, natural stride.

CimAlp's 864 Drop Control trail running shoes are a world first concept, allowing the wearer to slowly progress to a lower drop and a more natural stride that improves performance and reduces discomfort.

1 shoe + 3 pairs of soles (progressive drops 8mm - 6mm - 4mm) allows you to evolve towards a more natural stride by gradually reducing the drop from 8m to 4mm. This progressive approach prevents injury risk while improving performance

Because all runners are different, we have set up a program with sports and health professionals of the sport and the health to help you progress gradually towards the lowest drop of 4mm.

    We do not know where the shoes are made. They are good but not extraordinary. They are not worth their price excluding promotion. No 1/2 size
