Running long distances on trails requires a superior level of comfort and secure foot hold. The Origin LD upper and footbed are pre-shaped around a specific anatomical last to deliver a great feel and perfect fit, right out of the box. This anatomical fit also provides greater midfoot support and heel hold while running.
Comfort and running precision are always at the top of trail runners’ requirements – even if they almost represent opposite poles. Our signature Knitted Engineered Guidance technology combines the comfort of a one-piece knitted upper with the secure foot hold offered by a lightweight engineered cage structure.
The laces are fully integrated into the knitted upper. Thanks to their clever design, the special gusset laces setup allows precise, secure micro wrap adjustments and prevents pressure points at the instep.
When muscles get tired during a long-distance race or training on trails, it’s crucial to have a shoe capable of supporting the midfoot and accurately transferring information about rough terrain. Thanks to C.A.S. technology, our footbeds and uppers can be thermo-molded around the heel and the foot arch to deliver a new level of running precision and minimise fatigue.
Each foot is unique. This is why we believe that footwear should deliver a specific and personalised fit. The option to customize our shoes dramatically reduces the time normally needed to break in a new pair of shoes and resolves the majority of foot problems. Tecnica Origin LD are the only running shoes that can be thermo-moulded according to the individual’s foot shape.
Rough, technical terrain presents the ultimate test for trail runners’ shoes and legs. Especially on downhill sections. The high rebound EVA compound midsole offers good elasticity and with a 21 mm / 27 mm stack hight and 6mm drop, provides outstanding cushioning and protection for long-distance running.
Grip and stability are always a top trail running safety priority. That’s why the ORIGIN LD sole features VIBRAM® MEGAGRIP™ compound and an exclusive lug design that guarantees multidirectional traction and safe downhill braking for greater safety, plus superior grip on both dry and wet terrain.
