The norda 003 is a versatile and durable laceless footwear designed to provide support while seamlessly transitioning as a hiking, running, or walking shoe. The lace-less shoe approach utilizes a durable foundation that offers long days on the feet without compromising traction and comfort.

This shoe features a customized norda x Vibram SLE midsole cushioning and exclusively designed norda x Vibram Formation soleplate with Litebase and Megagrip Rubber at 5mm lugs. Its insole is also a custom designed eTPU that provides the highest possible energy absorption and return with every step.

Likewise, the norda 003 has a bio-sourced Dyneema upper for the best performance and abrasion resistance while maintaining the lowest carbon footprint.
