The new recovery slides offer custom comfort, perfect for a post workout or everyday routine

PORTLAND, Ore., May 2, 2023 – VELOUS Footwear, a leader in recovery footwear, has expanded its line of sandals designed to promote and optimize active recovery for athletes of all levels with the new Hoya Adjustable Slide. Created to help feet, ankles, knees and legs recover quickly from participation in sports or strenuous activities, Velous Footwear’s sandals incorporate the company’s patent-pending  Tri-Motion™ Technology to create the most comfortable, supportive and stable recovery footwear on the market. 

The new Hoya Adjustable Slide is designed for active individuals who demand comfort without sacrificing style. The Hoya Slide offers an easy-on, lightweight adjustable upper, and Tri-Motion sole unit that promotes natural foot motion, helping feet recover faster after a long workout. 

“The Hoya Adjustable Slide rounds out our recovery sandal lineup and features an adjustable upper for a custom fit,” said Tim Bartels, CEO and co-founder of VELOUS Footwear. “With maximum cushioning, and underfoot support and stability, the Hoya is both a perfect tool to enhance recovery and a comfortable sandal for daily activities.” 

The Hoya Adjustable Slide joins the VELOUS recovery sandal line including the unisex Laguna Slide, Oceanside Flip and Pacific Flip. Each element of the sandals was thoughtfully designed, with a lightweight and breathable upper and all VELOUS products include its Tri-Motion Technology and unique Foamotion Formula. 

Tri-Motion Technology 

The company’s patent pending Tri-Motion Technology offers a three point solution – from a supportive heel cup with side stabilizers, to optimal arch support and forefoot flexibility for a comfortable toe-off to the next step. VELOUS Footwear’s unique design offers a stable platform while providing maximum cushioning: shock absorption and a smooth heel strike, side supports to prevent ankle rolls and sprains, and an ergonomic contour for proper foot alignment and a comfortable standing position. Top and bottom flex grooves aid in flexing the forefoot without resistance for a natural feel underfoot. 

Foamotion Formula 

With a smooth transition from heel to toe, VELOUS Footwear’s custom triple density Foamotion Formula adapts to the gait of the user and provides an optimal combination of cushioning throughout the foot, to allow for healing and recovery. 

In addition to the incorporation of VELOUS Footwear’s patent-pending technology, the sandals are made of lightweight materials and also feature outsole reverse lug and grooved lines to provide great traction, inverted box nodes to stimulate blood flow and offer a tactile feel, and perforated uppers for maximum breathability and quick drying.

Using its patent-pending TriMotion Technology and Foamotion Formula, the company’s design philosophy applies across a spectrum of footwear options and was developed to reduce joint pain and stiffness and allow for active participation in activities the next day with less built-up fatigue.
