Speed of nature
Airia One helps 8 out of 10 to run faster regardless of their current level or running style.
Reveal your true potential
There is this tremendous power hidden in every running step. A force of nature that most often goes to waste. Airia One works by unleashing this explosive energy. This unbelievable drive helps you break records and push boundaries.
Airia One makes you more in tune with your body. A feeling of wanting to run manifests itself as soon as you try these shoes on. When running you will be higher in the step and have a better running feel.
After analyzing the running step down to its tiniest detail have we been able to better optimize the forces of a stride into forward momentum speed.
Everybody wants to achieve goals, be it the fastest mile in this run, my best 10k or a world record. Airia One is developed with this sole purpose.
Only for Running
Airia One is so focused on delivering running performance that you actually can’t walk in them.
As Nature Intended
If humans were only meant to run, then our feet would look like the sole of Airia One.
With nature and evolution as our stepping stone we have created a new paradigm in the development of running shoes.
Designed in Sweden
We come from hundreds of thousands of man hours and have a heritage of more than 170 years of shoe making.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I actually run faster with Airia One?
Yes, you probably will, but the results vary from person to person. Some runners have increased their pace by as much as 7 %, but some people reported a 1% decrease. 8 out of 10 people reported positive results! We don’t believe in a shoe that’s optimal for everybody, you just have to try for yourself to find out if Airia One makes you faster or not.
How does it work – really?
Our theory: a biomechanical difference affects each stride. Muscles are utilized in unique capacities, and since our shoes alter the muscular usage patterns with a unique design, you will be able to run faster and/or longer, especially at your maximum efforts.
How were the tests conducted?
The majority of tests were performed on 5 km distances. A sample group of 10 runners was selected (all size EU 42 / US 8) for each test. 2 separate runs were conducted in a 2-5 day period. Runners were told to restrain from serious exercise between runs, and to not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to the run. Shoes were randomized, our test shoe A or a competitors shoe B. Runs were conducted indoor, in a track and field arena to make sure conditions were the same all the time. We then compared times of test A with test B and performed a Wilcoxon signed rank test of the results. To make sure the test setup was not compromised in any way, we also did tests where shoe A and shoe B tested were identical. In that scenario, results were nearly identical.
Why didn’t you use a standard running effectiveness test
We believe that Sub max tests based on a certain percentage of the VO2 Max isn't the best way to predict running performance. Competitive running isn't only aerobic and that is the simple answer to why they don't work. All out time trials on shorter distances have proved to be a much better predictor of race performance on longer distances. That's why we use time trials.
What do you mean when you speak of a better running feel?
Runners who tested our shoes not only run faster, they get a different and better feeling from running. Most people report that they feel stronger and have an improved posture.
Is there a breaking in period?
Although our shoe is equally effective in forefoot strikers, mid foot and heel strikers, there is a tendency for heavy heel strikers to change their muscle usage pattern. Some have experienced sore calves. Always listen to your body’s response, it’s not to be taken lightly.
Are there any injury risks associated with Airia One?
Apart from some muscle soreness we haven’t come across any injuries during our tests. However, running is associated with some risks of injury. There is, in our opinion, not enough data available today to say anything regarding how the Airia One running shoes relate to running injuries. As always, weather you run in Airia One shoes or any other running shoes, listen to your body’s response, it’s not to be taken lightly.
Is there a social or media community for the Airia concept?
Currently, we have a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/airiarunning, and there’s more in progress. Please feel free to offer suggestions.

Airia One Running shoes have a regular fit and follow standard size charts. If you are normally a male size 9, you should choose size 9 for Airia One as well. Airia One shoes are also constructed so that they fit nicely around the ankle, regardless of ankle width and /or height.
To be sure you can always measure your foot
Stand on a tape measure, adopting a normal stance, and measure the longest distance between the heel and the tip of the toe, but make sure not to measure too close to the foot, allow a little bit of space.
