  • French Tech - CES 2016 - "The Enko shoe started out as a running enthusiast's passion project" #HistoiresdeFrance | Gouvernement.fr
    there is no precedent While some sports shoe manufacturers have ventured into this field they have never seen their efforts through to a finished product There is a certain logic in this in that major running brands are focused more on marketing innovation An engineer who is working on a running shoe today is not going to spend 10 years on a single product Thanks to its independent shock absorber and spring system the shoe can adapt to the runner s body type and weight in intervals of 10kg We re the only company in the world to offer that We re targeting customers who have been somewhat forgotten by the major brands explains Mr Freschi Running shoe manufacturers are targeting athletes and always seem to feature champions in their advertising but they have rather overlooked people who like to run for enjoyment and leisure but who have minor ailments or are a little overweight so I tried to focus on them Indeed while some 8 million French people run only 15 actually compete but those 15 are the driver for brands marketing they are a community of ambassadors who communicate with one another during races online etc not to mention the Sunday jogger the largest consumer segment When you re young athletic healthy and well trained your body can absorb all this impact When you run only occasionally however or you want to continue running as you get older or maybe even if you re a little overweight you can end up suffering from various conditions With this in mind I tried to optimise this cushioning system as something that was not previously available on the market even though such people account for the majority of runners Christian Freschi founded his company Enko on 1 January 2014 but it was early 2015 before the brand truly started to make a name for itself The start up initially pre sold 300 pairs of its innovative running shoes through an American crowdfunding platform enabling it to carry out some market research before transforming its presentation website into a merchant site and shifting another 300 pairs At the moment you have to allow three months between ordering and receiving the product We don t yet have the industrial facilities and the shoes are handmade We only employee four people but should have 10 15 employees by the end of 2016 With no experience whatsoever of the shoe making industry Christian Freschi subcontracts the manufacturing of the shoes to a professional based in Italy Unfortunately there are no longer any sports shoe manufacturers in France Enko therefore manufactures the entire sole with the Italian subcontractor taking care of the fitted part of the shoe and assembling it to the sole The start up also uses a design firm to design the shoe and all of the communications materials the company now uses This is truly a breakthrough innovation the entrepreneur explains Enko shoes are banned from competition because they provide a real energy
