UFC Champion Carlos Condit Tries Soft Star Shoes
We were excited this week to learn that UFC champion Carlos Condit wears our shoes!
Carlos Condit in Soft Star Moc3 RunAmocs
Condit is an American mixed martial artist competing in the welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is the former interim UFC Welterweight Champion and a former WEC Welterweight Champion, and he uses MovNat primal workouts to stay in shape.
MovNat is a physical education and fitness system that is entirely based on natural movement skills and strongly encourages natural barefoot movement. MovNat founder Erwan Le Corre, also a Soft Star fan, recently introduced our Moc3 RunAmocs to Condit and sent us these photos and videos showing them in action.
Our Moc3 RunAmoc, often called our "running sock," was designed for us by veteran Nike shoe designer Mike Friton, who wanted to make an ultra-lightweight slip-on shoe that allowed feet to move as naturally as possible. It's unique elastic structure stretches across the foot like a glove and a unique minimally-cut sole gives traction just where you need it to stay protected. The Moc3 has always been a favorite among barefooters, crossfitters and anyone seeking natural, primal fitness routines. We're thrilled that Condit and Le Corre approve!
Condit's next fight is scheduled for May 30, 2015, when he faces Thiago Alves in San Paulo, Brazil. We wish him the best!
