Ahnu Numentum Technology

If you've been looking through the Ahnu range and seen 'Numentum™ technology' but not known what it means - here's the full rundown on Numentum™ technology is and how it is customised to suit the shoe's purpose. 

What is Numentum™ technology?
Numentum™ technology is engineered to encourage your foot's natural biomechanics.  It is designed to center and guide the foot to promote an efficient, stable and balanced stride.

By carefully choosing materials and positioning the components, each of the Numentum™ technology options are designed to provide just the right amount of structure to respond to the stresses of their specific activities.
