The Trigenic Flex flexes in sync with the natural sequence of motion

UK footwear retailer Clarks has developed what it says is a "game-changing" new style of shoe, combining new technology, modern design and traditional manufacturing methods. 

The Trigenic Flex is a design-led shoe that flexes in sync with the natural sequence of motion. An anatomical last shape has been slimmed down and combined with a three-part decoupled sole unit, to support each stage of impact. It also features deconstructed uppers crafted from premium leather panels, cut, angled and interlocked for more comfort.

Clarks says the Trigenic Flex takes inspiration from its original 1883 Clarks Hygiene design; shoes that were shaped to the natural contours of the foot. 

"We started by looking at the Clarks 'Hygienic' collection of 1883," said Prad Indrakumar, senior designer for Clarks Originals. "This was a collection that allowed space for the toes of your foot to move as you walked – revolutionary for its time. We looked at how we could bring this into a modern context."
