The typical design of the left and right sole of the shoes are designed symmetrically. Defying this old wisdom, Syunsoku arranges its spikes on the inner side of the right sole and on the outer side of the left sole, thus enabling wearers to grip the ground when cornering counterclockwise. Developers have created shoes that enable fast-running children to run faster and give hope to slow-running children under the slogan, “Open a lead when cornering!”
