Making It To "The Top," Literally!
Working with SOLE athletes has many highlights, and one of the greatest of these is when I (we) get to celebrate our athletes' achievements. Ed Viesturs - the man who inspired and partnered with SOLE on our Signature EV Ultra Footbed - is one of these amazing athletes.
This past Saturday, May 12th, was the 7 year anniversary of Ed becoming the first American, and 6th person in the world, to summit all of the world's 8000 meter peaks without supplemental oxygen - WOW!
Check out this interview with Ed as he tells his record-setting story from inception to completion:
Whether I'm climbing a mountain, trekking into that peak, or training for a climb, I understand the importance of a good insole. With SOLE I was able to help develop my own signature branded footbed. It's a great product, it's reasonably priced, and it will increase the comfort of your expedition or training or whatever it is that you do. I even put them in my regular street shoes. - Ed Viesturs
Ed, thank you for not only dreaming, but also for "doing." Not only did you set a lofty goal, you achieved it as well! SOLE was proud to partner with you on May 12th, 2005 - the day you reached the summit of Annapurna, completing your goal – and we're proud to still partner and support you today. You're an inspiration to many, including the team at SOLE.
