As well as handling design and development for other brands, J-Walk also develops their own footwear technology. We developed all new barefoot technology in conjunction with Professor Stefan Grau, who is a world leading expert in biomechanics. This technology was successfully licensed for Marks & Spencer’s Step-Tone range of shoes. This was extremely successful and resulted in the creation of 6 of the top 12 selling shoes for Marks & Spencer in 2011. This sole technology is currently being licensed and used by European brand Sero.
Our moisture wicking Duo Vent technology was used by Henri Lloyd for the crew of the BMW Oracle team at the 2007 Americas Cup. It was also used in selected shoes for Skive of London.
