Spira is official sponsor of Disney's Endurance Series event

Apr '08
Spira Footwear has signed a three-year agreement with Disney's Wide World of Sports in which Spira will serve as the official performance footwear sponsor of Disney's Endurance Series events at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. and Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.

As part of the agreement, Spira Footwear will be included in key marketing and promotional efforts for Disney's Endurance Series. Disney's Endurance Series events include the Walt Disney World Marathon, which is one of the top marathons in the U.S., the Expedition Everest Challenge, Disney's Race for the Taste 10K, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 13K, and the Disneyland Half Marathon.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Disney's Wide World of Sports,” Andy Krafsur, CEO of Spira said. “Their brand is among the strongest in the world and connotes excellence in every sense of the word.” Spira is the company behind an innovation called the WaveSpring, a patented spring technology that is enclosed in the heel and/or forefoot of its shoes.

Spira elite runners have been winning or placing in the top three of many national and international marathons, half marathons and 10K races in the past year, including Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Atlanta, Ottawa, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Istanbul to name a few.

“The spring system not only cushions but also returns energy, making the shoe more comfortable and allowing runners to run harder for longer periods of time with less stress on their muscles and joints,” Krafsur said.
