This Italian Brand Is Making Running Shoes Out of Socks

July 14, 2023

After announcing its U.S. debut in March, Italy-based UYN — an acronym for “Unleash Your Nature” and pronounced “Win” — revealed its next atypical innovation: running shoes made from socks.

The brand, founded by design and manufacturing company Trerè Innovation, will debut UYN Running in spring ’24. UYN Running will include several running shoes that are engineered from socks and designed for the road, the trail and cross trail for both men and women. FN
