The Zerofly™ running shoe is a project by Winqs Sports based in Berlin, Germany that is due for release in 2022. The company was founded by Jan Kratochvil and Marek Brincil. Winqs are the first running shoe company to manufacture totally with bio-based or recycled materials which do make the footwear more expensive to manufacture. The initial run of the shoe is being crowd-funded via Kickstarter in advance to increase the size of the manufacturing run to reduce the unit costs.
