Speedo USA signs two year partnership deal with OrthoLite
May '14
SPEEDO USA, a division of PVH Corp. and the world’s leading swimwear brand, formally announced its two-year partnership with OrthoLite, the world’s leading provider of comfort insoles. Through the partnership, OrthoLite insoles are a featured technology in Speedo USA’s FST, a cutting-edge new all-terrain shoe specially engineered for triathlon, trail running, and any activity in and around the water; the centerpiece of Speedo USA’s expanded Footwear collection for 2014, the FST is in stores now.
To celebrate this new partnership and the launch of the FST, OrthoLite and Speedo are teaming up to give away two free pairs of the FST model through a Twitter sweepstakes running from May 13 through May 20.
Understanding the need for footwear that combats the hybrid world of terrain environments, OrthoLite enhances the super lightweight, amphibious performance of the FST with long-term airy cushioning, along with a fully perforated insole that provides unique comfort and full drainage when the shoe encounters water. 
The innovative FST is also built with:
-Non-marking Vibram outsoles for superior traction and slip resistance
-100% seamless construction for comfort with or without socks
-FluidFlow technology to provide drainage from upper sole down to the outsole
-Cushioned low-profile midsole for maximum proprioception of trail
-Hydrophobic, quick-drying monofilament mesh for maximum breathability
The FST is offered in men’s and women’s versions in a wide variety of bright, fashion forward colors, with the men’s shoe weighing in at 7.4 oz. and the women’s version at 6.4 oz. Retailing for $115, the FST is now available at www.SpeedoUSA.com and at select sporting goods retailers, including Dick’s Sporting Goods and Road Runner.com.
