FORUS- WHEN FUNCTION AND FASHION MERGE IN ATHLETIC FOOTWEAR.

FORUS is a socially conscious brand with the vision that no performance can be achieved without comfort and support in our shoes.

Three years ago, a group of athletes sought to create running shoes with the most shock absorbent system for maximum support, and a comfortable precise fit. Why? Simply because we all deserve it!

 

MAXIMUM COMFORT AND SUPPORT ARE A MUST, FORUS SHOES COME WITH OUR PATENTED POLSTARMAX 6 INSOLES.

HOW DID WE COME UP WITH FORUS?

 It all started with this statement: - “ This sucks! My shoe insoles are completely worn out and I feel like I am walking and training on a board!! It hurts!! ” 

After saying and thinking along these lines for over eight years we were fed up. We could not understand why better support meant spending an extra $30 for aftermarket insoles. We quickly learned that we were not alone to hope for a shoe with a standard shock absorbent system yet with incomparable comfort and engineering. 

 After speaking with a few podiatrists and learning that all insoles standard in shoes we purchased (even non-athletics ones) provided close to no support whatsoever, we decided to do something about it! And that’s where the journey began!

WHY THE NAME FORUS? WHAT’S WITH THE LOGO? 

Our philosophy is the inspiration behind the name FORUS. This brand is “for us” who want maximum support, comfort, and performance from our products, and “for us” who wish to make a difference in our communities. This alliance of community and business is symbolized in the logo: two hands interlock in a gesture of solidarity, people working together, and corporations supporting communities to create a better socially accountable business.

WHY GIVE BACK? 

 It was an evolving process to set up the base framework for FORUS philanthropic vision, simply because we wanted to find the right way to give back. We believe all corporations should be involved in the communities they serve. So FORUS forever plaged 10% of its global profits to children charities worldwide. We encourage you to watch the video in our gallery explaning FORUS philantropic Mission.

IN FACT, 10% OF THE FUNDS RAISED HERE WILL GO TOWARDS FORUS PHILANTROPIC MISSION. SO JOIN US IN CHANGING LIVES.

“What if one step towards making our world a better place did not require us to donate, but simply make the choice of a brand? “ -- FORUS Athletics. 

 

 TREND-SETTING DESIGNS -- We pride ourselves in creating shoes that answer to the needs of our advocates. We won’t pretend to know what you need. All we do is talk to specialists to learn what problems need to be addressed and we work on them. And since we don’t hesitate to CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO, we tend to go crazy with our aesthetics and engineering design! Did someone just say function and fashion?
