MOHAWK concept / Professional handball-shoe

MOHAWK concept
MOHAWK concept

The MOHAWK design concept is based on anatomical and biometrical research. It aims on preventing sport injuries by bending over the ankle.
My motivation comes out of personal experience.

I created a shoe that brings a balance between protection and high performance to the professional handball players needs.

The outstanding and unique feature, which looks like a mohawk haircut, blocks the energy on the inner side of the ankle. A wedge shaped sole enlargement supports stability in addition. The heel brace stops high torsion motion.

In case of rapid wear or sweat odor the inner and outer shoe can be separately replaced or washed
