Shoe Design & Materials
What makes the ARC RACER special?
The ARC RACER has eTPU sole cushioning and a 3D Knit upper, which is only found in the newest top of the line sneakers. The difference is that we are able to give you this sneaker tech at less than half the price of comparable shoes from giant sneaker brands. We are able to do this by selling directly to customers like you online, enabling us to cut the excess retail margins & mark-ups paid to brand ambassadors by giant sneaker brands, and pass on the savings to you without compromising on the quality of the shoe.
What is unique about RYDEFOAMTM? (the material used in the midsole)
The RYDEFOAMTM sole cushioning system is made using the world's most comfortable and responsive sole material - eTPU (expanded thermoplastic polyurethane). Our proprietary RYDEFOAMTM technology is designed such that the shoe feels like a soft pillow on your feet while walking and springs into action the moment you need to deliver on performance activities.
What is AEROKNITTM and why is it used as the upper material?
Precisely engineered by weaving together strong yet flexible strands of fabric, the AEROKNITTM upper is designed to wrap your foot in a way that combines breathability to wear it all day along with the flexibility and stability you need during performance activities like running or training.
What is the ARC RACER insole made of?
Our insoles are made out of foam which help provide a soft, cushioned experience for your feet.
Are your products vegan?
Yes, our products are vegan and we do not use any animal products in the making of our sneakers.
Shoe Advice, FIt & Care
How long would a pair of ARC RACER shoes last?
It depends on many different factors, such as running style, weight and the surface you run on, but generally the ARC RACER should comfortably last between 300 - 500 miles (approx. 482 - 800 km).
How do I know which size I need? What if I'm a half size or usually wear a wide shoe?
If you're unsure which size you wear for our ARC RACER take a look at our size guide located on our product page (right above the size selector). We don't currently offer half or wide sizing, but we've heard the request and have passed it along to our team. We hope half and wide sizes are something we'll be able to offer in the future as we continue to grow.
Which activities are your shoes suitable for?
In one word – anything! We built the ARC RACER with a single goal in mind - to be able to offer an all-purpose sports shoe using the world's best sneaker technology. It can withstand the toughest of workouts while providing you all- day comfort and aesthetic versatility to wear to office or for a night out.
What kind of terrain is the ARC RACER designed for?
Our sneakers have been tested throughout different seasons and landscapes. We have ensured that they are well suited for training (indoor and outdoor), running, and all day walking for your daily routine.
I overpronate / oversupinate. Is the ARC RACER still the right shoe for me?
Our shoes haven't been built specifically for any of the three kinds of pronation. But we have been mindful of the tendency of your feet rolling over. This is why we have put in mid-foot stabilizers - lines of re-enforcing material on the inside of the knit so that your foot stays in place. We also have foam locks and a heel piece to support the back of your feet.
Apart from runners with "normal" feet, can the ARC RACER be worn by people with flat foot, fallen arches, hollow feet or splay feet?
Traditionally, people are classified into static ‘foot types’. As a result, many runners end up being advised to wear very stable shoes. At ELEVAR, by contrast, we look at your entire running motion with the goal to enable you to activate or deactivate the right muscles at the right moment in the cycle. That’s what our unique RYDEFOAMTM sole system and AEROKNITTM upper enables you to do, regardless of foot type.
I usually wear orthopedic insoles. Should I continue wearing them with the ARC RACER?
The outsoles of our running shoes are designed to adapt to everyone's individual running style by distributing pressure once contact is made with the ground. We'd suggest trying out our shoes without additional insoles, but if you're accustomed to wearing insoles, you can easily swap out our insoles and use what your comfortable with. At the end of the day comfort is a personal thing - we always tell everyone that the shoe needs to fit your needs and not the other way around.
How do I wash / clean my shoes?
If your shoes get dirty, we recommend brushing them off first to release any dirt. If washing your shoes is needed, it's best to wash them in cold water on a gentle cycle without laundry detergent. Washing your shoes as seldom as possible is recommended.
