STARTING FROM SCRATCH
JUST A RUNNER & A DREAM
antepes was started by avid runner Shah. He’s run for fitness, leisure and competitions all of his life (including breaking a school record), and also played college soccer where he was the golden boot winner. Running has always been an important part of who he is. In 2015, Shah developed a bone spur on one of his feet. When he ran long distances, the bone spur would flare up. He tried everything he (and doctors!) could come up with to get rid of the bone spur, but it seemed like surgery was the only cure. After re-evaluating his running form, he tried forefoot running, thinking it might at least prevent the bone spur from getting worse. He was amazed to find that his problem went away in a short time, and he never went back to heel striking!
Drawing upon his background in engineering, Shah believed a better running shoe design could enhance his forefoot running experience. He decided that instead of forefoot running in a heel-striking shoe, he would develop a shoe especially for proper forefoot running. He discovered muscle running™️ and started making shoes for forefoot running and beyond that specifically enable a muscle run™.
After pouring two and a half years into perfecting the design and composition of the Muscle Runners™, we are happy to share this Muscle Running™ shoe with YOU.
