Zoot – Triathlon Apparels & Running Shoes
Zoot is the leading running and triathlon sports brand, providing quality running shoes, triathlon, running, and cycle apparel and wetsuits.
In 1983, Zoot was born in Kona, Hawaii, the home of the Ironman Triathlon World Championships, Zoot Sports began making performance apparel that catered to elite athletes competing in the emerging sport of Triathlon. A woman by the name of Christal Nylin, who lived in Kona, noticed that the athletes competing in Ironman needed something more functional to race in. In other words, a solution to avoid having to use transition as “changing areas,” and to no surprise, the same principle we strive by today: to find product solutions for multisport athletes.
In 1996, Zoot Hawaii moved to California and the product line has expanded since. Zoot has grown to be a global premier endurance sports brand, distributed worldwide and is the creator of the first triathlon-specific footwear line. Zoot continues to draw on its history in the sport and its athletes to deliver the most comprehensive, technologically-advanced, and complete multisport product line in the world.
