Miami, FL and Woodstock, CT – In a recent fitness segment broadcasted nationally on CBS, Dr. Travis Stork of The Doctors sported a pair of ZEMgear Terra split-toe shoes with PORON® Performance Cushioning while highlighting the latest trends in fitness fashion and workout gear.
Drawn to the natural footwear trend, and specifically ZEMgear’s split-toe technology, The Doctors demonstrated how the design properly keeps feet in their ideal position and comfortably protected with PORON Cushioning.
The benefits of the impact-absorbing PORON Cushioning layering in ZEMgear’s SPRING 2013 collection uniquely combine ZEMs’ natural foot flexibility with comfort and protection.
“As a relatively young company, we were thrilled that ZEMgear caught the attention of The Doctors,” said Christina Bracken, ZEMgear Founder and President. “We hope that its viewers learned a bit more about the health and fitness benefits of natural foot technology and PORON Cushioning’s shock – absorbing characteristics.”
