Darwin could have seen this coming. Technology and innovation shaping how athletes view the boundaries between water and land. The athletes in turn evolving to reflect the lifestyle and activities they pursue. Evolution has created a new creature - one we call the amphibious athlete. Equally at home on land or in the water, amphibious athletes demand the versatility and performance necessary to match the diversity of challenges they take on - whether paddling in the Nantahala, surfing that big wave in Baja or exploring the jungles of Belize. It all melds together for the amphibious athlete as they dance with water in all its forms.
Through a focus on end-use and the athlete's performance needs, and by seeking out innovative new materials and production methods, Mion shoes are some of the best high performance products in the market. From the unique 2-in-1 approach of the Flood Tide, to the versatility and performance of our soon to be introduced Fast Canyon, or the minimalist approach to performance found in both the Current Sandal and the all new Pen Shell Clog, we're confident that our commitment to innovation shows through. This commitment has yielded a number of industry firsts, of which we currently have patents pending:
The superior performance and versatility of Mion footwear is the result of a number of innovative components working together:
An anatomically shaped surface that permanently takes the shape of the user's foot resulting in their own personalized fit. Some styles feature a removable footbed with a layer of Ergomorphic foam that customizes to the shape of the wearers foot after approximately 12 hours of use.
Sculpted Super-StructureEach Sculpted Super-Structure rib wraps around the foot in critical areas to keep the foot in place during static and dynamic conditions and to provide coverage and cushioning. The result - a protective and personalized fit to match the user's foot characteristics and width.
Wet or dry, Miona footwear is designed to be feather light.
One piece cord made of either climbing-grade rope or extremely strong Kevlar cord that spirals around the Sculpted Super-Structure, resulting in the wearer's ability to customize a precise fit based on the demands of the activity.
Ultimate traction on wet and dry surfaces with a unique outsole design that features a proprietary Quad-Cut siping configuration and Gripstick rubber compound.
Some Mion styles feature an amphibious liner material that delivers wind resistance, water resistance, and a high level of breathability.
100% Water Compatible
Mion footwear does not get wet like leather or fabric footwear. Most of our styles literally cannot absorb or retain water and some of our styles even float in water.
Mion is committed to making our shoes in the most environmentally friendly way possible. There is still a long way to go, but here are some of the ways we are reducing our impact on the environment
Renewable EnergyBecause renewable energy was not available in China where we manufacture our shoes, we sought out partners, like Green-e, to help us maintain our commitment to renewable energy. With their help, we're able to effectively purchase wind power from South Dakota to offset 100% of the energy used in manufacturing our shoes. 100% of our European distribution center is fueled with on-site wind turbines and solar panels.
Solar EnergyMion's US distribution center also receives 60% of its power from on-site solar panels. This center, located in Ontario, CA is one of the largest systems of its kind in the country, and in the top 50 for size in the world.
Mion is working toward carbon neutral and is affiliated with the following organizations
EcoMetrics LabelMion created the industry's first standardized EcoMetics label (example below) to help us make better choices and to give consumers visibility into the impact of theirs.
Recycled MaterialsWe use recycled materials wherever possible, including in our packaging, which features a design that reduces the amount of glue we use and is made of post-consumer recycled materials and soy inks. We encourage all of our consumers to reuse or recycle the boxes.
Athletic sandals and active footwear in general are usually confounded by multiple conditions. Footwear is designed for either wet or dry conditions and very rarely do you see a shoe meant to not only handle both but to excel in both conditions.
Mion sandals are like nothing you have ever seen before. Feather light but sturdy and completely versatile, these shoes will take you anywhere that you want to go. Mion shoes come in several styles, all able to handle wet conditions without slowing you down, and all are made with the dedication to athletic performance and an environmental world view.
