Walk Smarter with TRAQ by Alegria™

First comfort walking shoe with an integrated pedometer

that instantly syncs with your smartphone

Ontario, Calif. (May 23, 2018) – Meet everyone’s new favorite walking shoe, TRAQ by Alegria™. This is the next evolution in wellness; the first comfort walking shoe with an integrated pedometer that instantly syncs with your smartphone.  Alegria brings this concept to life by designing TRAQ shoes using supple leathers, vivid prints, and then pairing each distinctive creation with our patented footbed and new Q-Chip Technology.

Embedded in each pair is the smart Q-Chip that accurately accounts for every step.

When connected to the TRAQ by Alegria™ smartphone app, you can set personalized goals and compare it against your daily, weekly, and monthly stepping activity.

You can also create your very own community of family, friends and coworker groups through the app for a fun and engaging way to encourage each other towards wellness.

All TRAQ by Alegria™ shoes feature a specially designed removable footbed—a special blend of cork, polyurethane and memory foam ergonomically designed to conform to the natural contours of the feet, offering a truly exceptional level of comfort and arch support, unlike in any other walking shoe.  When paired with the unique dual-density outsole, the components work seamlessly to relieve stress on the legs, hips and back to deliver all-day comfort.

“Our vision for TRAQ by Alegria™ is to encourage happiness through wellness and how we plan to achieve that is to create an online interface with friends, co-workers and family members to create fitness goals by tracking their steps,” said Megan Gold, Design Director at TRAQ. “We are combining our core customers favorite fitness pastime with their favorite shoe brand.
