In 1985, Ultimate Direction invented the entire category of hydration packs. Ultimate Direction built the first waist pack designed to carry bottles, a few years later created the first bottle strap to carry a water bottle in your hand, and made numerous other innovations that helped define what a hydration pack is today.
More than 25 years later, Ultimate Direction is at the forefront again with its Signature Series, having been created by three of the world’s best ultra-runners. This innovation popularized the "vest" concept for carrying water, featuring no-bounce comfort and the ability to easily access bottles in the front. Now, Ultimate Direction is introducing the very first women's-specific line of hydration packs, designed by the Women’s Collective when Ultimate Direction asked them specifically what they wanted for themselves. Finally, Ultimate Direction has updated the whole product line with new technical fabrics, streamlined design, and contemporary colors.
Ultimate Direction’s products are designed by athletes for athletes. Some of the best runners in the world thought long and hard about what works the best, and the result is the amazing features you see today. The Ultimate Direction mission is to provide the ultimate in high performance hydration for everyday athletes. Ultimate Direction reengineers, reinvents, and redefines high performance hydration for everyday athletes.
OTZ’s story started not so long ago (2005, to be exact). Ludo, creative director of a leading athletic lifestyle brand, came across an article written by Petr Hlavacek describing the oldest shoes ever found. These belonged to Oetzi, the iceman, and dated all the way back to 3300 B.C. Now that’s a long time ago!
Considering the time period, the shoes were quite remarkable—made of deerskin stitched to a bearskin sole with an internal woven net, filled with dried grass and moss for warmth and comfort. Inspired by Oetzi’s creativeness, Ludo was intrigued by redesigning this iconic shoe incorporating today’s trend, comfort, and technology. Thus the OeTZI3300 sneaker was born!
Ludo and his crew created a unique piece of art, utilizing a cork footbed technology, CorkLite®, that is made to make your feet smile—true barefoot comfort. CorkLite® is made for an all day, everyday adventure. The antimicrobial properties of the cork reduce bacterial build-up and allow you to wear the shoes with or without socks. OTZ® sneakers are designed for total comfort and a maximum organic fit. Just like any other sneaker, they will feel snug at first so a breaking-in period is recommended.
Fast forwarding to May 2010, OTZ was on the rise to revolutionize the industry. In such a short amount of time, and a slight shift in name from OeTZI3300 to OTZshoes, the brand has become recognized worldwide and continues to gain incredible momentum daily. OTZ is a happy family of workers who share the same passion and intensity for this brand, and the footwear they’ve created.
