norda™ founders Nick and Willa Martire felt disappointed by the trail running shoes of other brands so they sought out to create their own. Starting with the foundation of sustainability, innovation, and practicality they tested prototypes in their native Canadian wilderness. In 2021 they released their first official model, the norda™ 001, that realized the desires of the creators with its small ecological footprint, material innovation, and performance while on the trail. norda™ utilizes the world's lightest and strongest material™ in their Bio-Dyneema® uppers. In combination with the custom Vibram® foam midsole and rubber outsole, the sustainable and technical elements come together to create a trail-runner that will take the wearer anywhere with minimal environmental impact.
