Footwear startup Vimazi raises $1M before debut launch

Vimazi, which makes running shoes specifically tuned for the pace of the runner, completed its Seed 3 investment round of US$1m on June 30, 2022, bringing its total funding raised to US$2.6m.

Based in Portland, Oregon, the hybrid direct-to-consumer startup was founded by running industry veterans Scott Tucker and John Zilly. (The Seed 3 Round consisted of angel investors. Vimazi is a DBA of FastEquation, a Delaware S Corp founded in 2018.)

The company’s shoe range features different models according to a runner’s running pace.

Using newly developed mathematical equations of the intricate forces produced during running, we fine-tune our shoes to deliver custom performance that maximizes cushioning and propulsion efficiency for each runner,” said Scott Tucker, co-founder and CEO of Vimazi

“Our shoes shift the paradigm from the one-size-fits-all super shoe to specific, pace-tuned models that work best for each individual.”

Vimazi’s patent pending technology configures specially developed foams differently for each model. The first four models in the collection will be available to consumers in September. Two additional models will launch in October. Vimazi is currently designing and testing five more pace-fitting shoes that are scheduled for release in 2023.

Vimazi is an interesting startup with immense capabilities. Congratulations on their well deserved funding and my best wishes.
