Chris Lintaman, owner of Taichung-based innovation brand Lintaman, currently manufacturing cycling shoes, joins growing list of companies to work with PowWord Communications.
Lintaman, a small brand whose first product is cycling shoes, is an innovation-driven company that looks to only develop products that can provide meaningful and significant improvements. Chris Lintaman, who at one time was the VP of ASI (Fuji) Asia, said “we’re really happy to work with Tim, having met him years ago when he also worked with ASI, and look forward to seeing how he can help us communicate our unique brand story.”
“I met Chris on one of my first trips to Taiwan with ASI, and quickly learned he had a lot of ideas, but it was not until later that he launched his first pair of shoes that I really saw what a creative approach he has to innovation,” stated Jackson, owner of PowWord Communications. “Lintaman is kind of an un-shoe company. Though shoes are Chris’ first product, they aren’t going to be his only products- and he won’t remain solely in the cycling market, which is part of what I admire about Chris.”
Lintaman’s multiple shoe designs are all very unique in how they approach fit and function. The Adjust Pro Plus, which took a few years to develop, is the first cycling shoe of its kind to allow a cyclist to customize the length and width of the shoe. With an adjustable side wing and heel cup that can slide in or out of the shoe, no other shoe on the market offers the same range of fit tuning.
“We’re really not a ‘shoe company’, per se. We’re only interested in bringing products to market where we can apply our relentless design philosophy to make significant improvements. Shoes were a convenient first product, but we have several other products that we’re working on,” Lintaman stated, hinting that new products were on the horizon.
Lintaman shoes are available in stores across Asia and in select stores in Europe, and will at first be available consumer-direct via their website in North America, UK and Australia, though they are currently working to develop distributor and retailer partnerships in those countries.
