BlueLine Lab History

In major marathons, racers follow the blue line – the fastest route from start to finish. Our BlueLine Lab tackles futuristic shoe technology with the same approach, using the fastest path to get advanced prototypes developed and onto the feet of runners at lightspeed. The BlueLine team is quick on their feet and have been breaking new ground in speed, trail and cushion shoes for years. Take a look at the roadmap of BlueLine Lab shoes, past to present.
