Active Life and Paddle Sport Brand Partakes in Paddle Stars Race as Vendor and Sponsor

ZEMs Oxygen 2 and its protective big brother, the H20 Team, were just recently listed in the 2015 Paddling Business 2015 Product Guide as top-ranked products for these new sports.

Developing products to embrace an active lifestyle as a way to make the most of our bodies’ natural ability to move and remain fit, flexible and agile is what we focus on.

ZEMgear recently took part in the 2014 Paddle Stars Race, participating both a vendor and sponsor. The Daytona Beach-based 2014 Paddle Stars Race is known as a hugely popular stand-up paddle boarding event, featuring paddlers from all over the world – including top-level athletes like Danny Ching and Slater Trout.

The growth in Paddle Sports is reflected in the new products by ZEMgear geared to the Paddle Sports demographic and the specific performance requirements in and around various types of shores and beaches. The Oxygen 2 and the H20 Team collections were recently reviewed in the 2015 Paddling Business Product Guide as top-ranked products for these water sports.

Featuring unique and trendy styles, ZEMgear’s Oxygen 2 (MSRP $59) and H20 Team (MSRP $79) footwear collections promote natural foot flexibility and focus on performance needs like non-marking outsoles, protection, breathability, and slip-resistance. ZEMgear’s Active Life Footwear is designed to bridge performance, protection and natural motion. All ZEM designs address the specific performance and environmental requirements of a sport and activity. Like the Oxygen 2 and H2oTEAM, all ZEMs allow near-nature like use of one's feet - while combining flexibility with comfort and smart features like the H20 Team’s security strap in three exchangeable colors.

Outside of their paddling pursuits, kayakers, rafters, canoers and stand-up paddlers share a passion for
many of the same activities. As a result ZEMgear offers a wide variety of “crossover” product for "crossover" participation. The U-Series addresses the comfort and fashion element of this newly discovered category and blends the needs of water-sport shoes with comfort and fashion in the U-Jane, U-Cross and U-Ex (all MSRP $89).

“Developing products to embrace an active lifestyle as a way to make the most of our bodies’ natural ability to move and remain fit, flexible and agile is what we focus on,” said Christina Bracken, CEO and Founder of ZEMgear.

ZEMgear is determined to use natural footwear designs to help achieve the flexibility and agility we can gain by natural movement. Every step you take in your ZEMs keeps you in your Zone of Endless Motion.
