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

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. 

Switching footstrike is yet not without risk. Perhaps it’s time for a new view on footstrike and how to change it…

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


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 (the difference between the heel height and the fore foot height), allows the runner to land midfoot, improving natural damping and encouraging a more efficient, natural stride. But large changes in footstrike can increase load on different tissues and potentially lead to injury.

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 risks while improving performance

    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
