The ENKO running shoes feature an exclusive mechanical cushioning system made of a patented “double sole”, with more than 50 different parts. These shoes use springs matching the runner’s bodyweight. Thanks to this radical sole, the ENKO running shoe cushions impacts far differently than any other shoe in the world. The ENKO running shoes are the only ones in the world to match runners’ bodyweight.

ENKO is an unprecedented technological leap. Designed and assembled by a French Start-up company based in Castelnaudary (near Toulouse, SW France), the ENKO running shoe has an exclusive customizable mechanical cushioning system. Its patented double sole made of more than 50 parts includes a set of springs matching runner’s bodyweight. Thanks to this revolutionary sole, the ENKO running shoe claims “to cushion shocks better than any other shoe in the world.” 

With its exclusive cushioning, the ENKO running shoe asserts to:

1. Reduces the shock caused by the impact of the feet on the ground
2. Is the World’s only running shoe fitting runners bodyweight
3. Matches all types of stride (overpronator, supinator, neutral)
4. Gives back all the energy collected from the impact on the ground
5. Is able to run up to 2.000 km with no change in its cushioning quality

The ENKO running shoe is a 100% French innovation. It has been designed and developed by Christian Freschi, a mechanical engineer and a running enthusiast. This shoe is the result of 12 years of R&D and tests. It is made in France, in Castelnaudary (near Toulouse), and sold by the start-up company founded and managed by Christian Freschi and his wife Jacqueline Freschi.

The ENKO running shoes are only available online. Does this mean you cannot try them out? Not at all! From March 30th, ENKO is offering a 30-day trial to all its customers. For 30 days, you can use the shoes in real conditions on your usual routes. If you are not satisfied, send the shoes back to get a full refund (return cost included). According to Christian Freschi : “No other running shoe manufacturer has ever offered the possibility to return a product within 30 days. We are sure of our products quality.”

  • Hello, this is Veit and I like to buy a pair of enko running shoes, but there is no internet site of www. Enko- running- shoes.com. I hope they are not out of business? Where can I buy those or similar shoes? Thanks your Veit

    • Hello Veit,

      Thanks for visiting our site and for the question. It appears that ENKO is no longer in business and these shoes are not being made any more.

  • What a pity that enko running shoes does not exist anymore. Is there no substitute for it? There are so many running shoes on the market, but no one is really giving the shock absorption and the kick if you want to push yourself forward wit the shoe. Your Veit

  • Somebody needs to inform your advertisement people if you simply put the price beside the shoe you would sell more products.....😉

    • Thanks for the comment. We are an active gear review and information site, we don't sell any products. As for the ENKO running shoes, they made a few and completely disappeared from existence. And I don't recall if they even came up with an actual price to go to market with.

  • I had ordered these shoes a few years ago. One pair for my son, who is in the Navy, and a pair for myself. It was the first time I had treated myself and my son by splurging on something for our health... as we are both runners. We were so excited and anxious to get these shoes. My credit card was billed for two pair of shoes, but to our dismay, the shoes never arrived in the U.S. Furthermore, after corresponding with them, we were cut off from any further correspondence, learning that the company was defunct. Needless to say, we were very unhappy. We were out quite a bit of money, and had never gotten our shoes. I dont think I will ever order overseas online again. Terribly disappointed. 😔 😡 😞
