Lenn Hann, inventor of the Hann Full Suspension Shoes, is an engineer by trade and also an avid adventure sports enthusiast. Lenn started running in college and completed his first marathon in 1995. After a new pair of shoes gave him a tendon injury, Lenn realized that running shoes designs needed to be reimagined.
Late one night in August 1997, Lenn was strolling through O’Hare International Airport and came upon a moving rubber walkway. Curious about the walkways as a running surface, Lenn placed his bags down, removed his sneakers, and proceeded to run barefoot on the walkway. To his surprise, the resilient surface felt amazing. He felt less pain and fatigue and ended up running for two hours and did a half marathon on the walkways!
This was the catalyst that inspired the Hann Shoes design. After decades of testing, Lenn was finally able to replicate the feeling he had [from the walkway surface] to be accessible inside a pair of shoes. The technology behind these shoes were designed to bring forth the pain and fatigue relief benefits to everyone and not just the running community.
Now, it’s our mission to empower everyone to live their best lives. If we can make the experience of getting out, walking around the block, or jogging a little bit more enjoyable, imagine what it could do for everyone’s health! And, that’s what Hann Shoes is all about.
Our shoes fit true-to-size. We use an anatomic foot last and strive to have our sizing match that of a standard Brannock device as closely as possible.
You do not need to know your size when submitting a pledge. After we are funded, we will send out a survey to everyone to receive your shoe size and we will work with you to help you find the right sizing.
Colors and Design
Colors and designs may change based on feedback from our supporters, market trends, and improvements to the Hann suspension technology.
