The ZEM Advantage
ZEMgear has created an innovative and award winning line of footwear for all walks of life. Sports, Leisure, Kids, Travel, Wellness, Comfort at Home – ZEM offers a product for every barefoot lifestyle.
In January 2011 ZEMgear’s collection received the 3M IN-NEW-VATION award for the “Most Innovative Footwear Product” at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City. ZEMgear was nominated in January as a FINALIST of the 2012 ISPO BrandNew award.
MINIMAL ALL THE WAY
Commitment to responsible use and conservation of resources guides ZEMgear’s product innovation and set the precedence to “not use” whenever possible.
This dedication results in low-impact design and packaging. We minimize the use of virgin raw materials in manufacturing. Minimal packaging saves on shipping and display cost.
We print with soy certified inks, use post-consumer materials and buy locally when possible. Avoiding wastefulness at the design and concept level is the most effective way to keep a company’s carbon foot print moderate. We think “Minimal All the Way”.
Let your feet live up to their potential!
Proprioception describes the sensory feedback that is passed on from over 250,000 nerve endings in the sole of the foot to the brain. Information travels more quickly and directly from your foot to your brain when there is Less Shoe and More You. ZEMs allow your foot to be as barefoot as possible without being barefoot and help increase awareness, improve posture and balance.
While wearing ZEMs you can spread, flex and articulate all parts of your foot, getting everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Less Shoe. More You. ™
