The parallels between tire technology and technical soles are as intimate and striking as the connection between the soles of your feet and the ground beneath them.

It’s why we’re using our unrivalled expertise in rubber and tread design to equip the world’s leading performance footwear brands with technically advanced outsoles.

Walk, run, ride, climb.

However you choose to move, you count on your footwear to do the hard graft, to get you where you need to be—no exceptions, no excuses. Soles By MICHELIN power the way you move in work, sport, leisure and everything else life throws at you.

“Michelin has always pushed the boundaries of what’s possible. We want people to truly experience that innovation first-hand. We want them to feel, what over a century, creativity and discovery has taught us. We’re creating a new breed of technical soles that outperform and outlast anything you’ve seen.”

There really are no limits. The technology, the precision design, the product performance.
It’s extraordinary.”
