Let's take comfort to the next level. With the Slam, we are tapping into the running trend, which fits perfectly with our 'court' models. The name of the Slam is a nod to our tennis heritage. Think, for example, of the Grand Slams where HUB's founder played tennis.
The sole of the Slam is made of high-quality EVA (Ethel Vinyl Acetate). So this is not plastic or rubber, but a synthetic foam that gives a rubbery effect. EVA consists out of thousands of air bubbles. This makes the sneaker feather light, flexible and shock absorbent. Also, the bottom of this sole is slightly wider, making comfort and stability feel even more intense.
The design of the Slam is bold. A more distinct design than the average HUB sneaker. The sneaker stands alone and opens up a new world for HUB.
All sneakers from HUB Footwear have our own insoles, so that every step feels comfortable. Our insoles used to have gel pads. The reason for removing the gel padding from the insole is to make it more environmentally friendly and durable, because the gel pods were not. And there's more! Our insoles have a ventilation system to keep your feet fresh. And that feels great!
