SQAIRZ and SuperSpeed Announce Groundbreaking Study Results and Strategic Partnership

SQAIRZ and SuperSpeed Announce Groundbreaking Study Results and Strategic Partnership

WINDHAM, NH – SQAIRZ, the leader in innovative athletic footwear, is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with SuperSpeed Golf, experts in golf speed training systems. SQAIRZ and SuperSpeed Golf will join together in an ongoing collaboration that will build on each brand’s commitment to help golfers create more distance.

The collaboration began organically, with SuperSpeed Golf looking to test SQAIRZ’S performance claims. During Stage One of the study, SuperSpeed’s Co-Founder Mike Napoleon, along with Dr. Tyler Standifird, Professor of Biomechanics and Kinesiology at Utah Valley University, set out to determine if golf shoe construction makes a difference in speed production—and found the results were astounding.

Stage One of the test measured the relative performance of shoe construction on a golfer’s speed production utilizing three shoes: FootJoy Flex spikeless shoe, Whitin’s zero-drop minimalist shoe, and the new SQAIRZ VELO spiked shoe. Several key findings were produced, including the discovery that athletes wearing SQAIRZ VELO saw an increase of 4.2 mph in club speed and a remarkable 16.9 yard increase in carry distance compared to the FootJoy Flex and Whitin minimalist shoes. This segment of the study concluded that by simply changing footwear, SQAIRZ significantly increased ground force production and speed, resulting in measurable gains in distance.

In addition to testing the construction of footwear’s effect on player’s performance, Stage Two tested two golfers as they went through a specific Ground Reaction Force (GRF) training protocol developed by SuperSpeed Golf based upon each player's own limitations in force production.  After the 10-minute protocol, post-testing was completed for their shoe conditions. The variables of interest were similar to those in Stage One, but the main focus in Stage Two was on the GRF changes as a result of the SuperSpeed Ground Force training protocol in each shoe condition. This segment of the study saw that after following a GRF-specific training program, the golfers in the study were able to improve their GRF profiles to a greater extent in the SQAIRZ shoes compared to the golfers’ own golf shoes. These findings show that the footwear choice of the golfer plays a role in GRF and the associated club and ball speeds in both the acute setting and also as a result of training.

As part of their partnership starting May 13, SQAIRZ and SuperSpeed Golf are excited to launch an online promotion featuring an exclusive bundle of SQAIRZ and SuperSpeed products that will allow real golfers to experience the transformation created in the test and also have the opportunity to enter a contest to win these premium bundles. To further engage their audiences, a livestream event will be held on May 28, 2024 to showcase key findings from the studies. During the live stream, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with study researchers and learn about the future of athletic performance footwear.

"SQAIRZ was launched five years ago based upon research that showed that by improving balance, stability, and ground connection, there is a direct impact on distance and overall performance. We aren’t just making shoes; we’re creating a foundation for athletes to exceed their limits,” says Bob Winskowicz, Founder & CEO of SQAIRZ. “I can’t be more excited to see SuperSpeed’s study further prove that by simply changing your footwear to SQAIRZ, you can significantly increase distance and result in lower scores."

"When we saw the results from our study, a partnership with SQAIRZ was a no-brainer. Our shared passion for innovation and performance is something truly special,” comments Mike Napoleon, Co-Founder & President of SuperSpeed. “The results from our combined efforts are nothing short of extraordinary—every golfer dreams of hitting further, playing better, and achieving more, and with SuperSpeed technology combined with SQAIRZ shoes, we're turning those dreams into reality."
