“Design is about form following function…art and science symbiotically working together.”

  Aaron on the importance of balance in design

Based off the feedback from the testers, Aaron sought out to create the most plush lofted internal bootie to fix the issue. At the time, he was impressed by a specific mesh called OS Meshler, a 4mm thick mesh that was super light and comfortable.. He was also inspired by a particular high-end office chair that had lofted mesh. Using those two points of focus, he worked with a vendor to create the thickest possible spacer mesh at 6mm, and to this day it’s one of the most comfortable mesh materials ever created. It’s thick and plush, but high performing, lightweight, and breathable.
From his experiences drilling holes into his bike, Aaron added holes to the TPU shell to further reduce the weight. That shell was combined with an evolved, refined form of the “monkey paw” containment system that fused its lateral and medial stability with torsional stability.
Up top, Aaron juxtaposed the “engine” of the Ultraflight with the aesthetic of the hand-stitched Italian leather of the supercar’s interior. It almost split the shoe in half, but it was really about placing two extreme opposites together and balancing them out perfectly.
For cushioning, the intent was to use a drop-in full-length Zoom insole (double-stacked at the heel) that was removable. The goal was to have the foot directly touch the Zoom bag for maximum cushion, but in the end, the insole was cemented in.
