Deckers X Lab achieved this unique combination by using both carbon fiber and EVA foam wool in the new KO-Z sneaker. The resulting product is a carbon fiber plate wrapped in upcycled EVA foam, finished off with a ‘Meta-Rocker’ geometric midsole.
The designer refers to this shoe as a “fast-casual” shoe, since it combines sports with comfort. Additionally, Deckers X Lab stated that the shoe engages the wearer in a “flow” experience that enables a perfect range of motion. The “flow” terminology was previously used by the company, as it purports itself as a manufacturer of “flow wear,” rather than footwear and apparel.
The KO-Z Sport Low Wool Carbon sneaker is available now in a variety of colorways, such as Pink, Light Grey, and Dark Grey, at an MSRP of $160 USD.
