Kleber ´Binho´ dos Santos
Kleber ´Binho´ dos Santos is one of the most passionate runners we have ever seen. He is not only the three times champion and current course record holder of the @br135ultramarathon but also finisher of this years @badwaterhq 135 Ultramarathon: “The World´s toughest footrace!”.
“The amount of miles Kleber puts into his daily training schedule and the extreme ultramarathons he regularly runs, is a valuable testing ground and confirmation for current and future shoe models we develop.” says Sebastian, founder and CEO of Joe Nimble who met Kleber in Death Valley in July of this year, where he was impressed with Klebers athletic talent and potential as a long distance runner.
Kleber confirmed in Death Valley already, that our toefreedom® philosophy was such a unique positive experience for him, that he spontaneously – against all unwritten runner rules – he decided to wear the Ultreya® during part of the Badwater Ultra: “It's the first time in my life and actually against all rules that I wear a new shoe for the first time during a race. But I felt more comfortable with it. I don't know why, but that's how it was.", says Kleber.

Joao is a Portuguese #ultrarunner and sports entreprenerur: basically serious all-around ultrarunning!
Joao’s awesome progress on a short running span of just over five years speak for itself. From running over 281 kms non-stop at #pt281ultramarathon with just a couple of years of running to tackling several long distance races of 100-mile and beyond in top positions leading up to a great finish at Badwater 135 last year!
Joao said: “I am honoured to be part of such a hardworking running team. I fully believe that Joe Nimble is making strides to becoming one of the most ground breaking companies in the running shoe world, due to their innovative toefreedom® philosophy. I was impressed that the company has first introduced the benefits of toefreedom® to the shoe industry already 40 years ago. With the support of the team and the benefits of their philosophy to my own running, I hope to enjoy many races, have great experiences and improve my performance!!”
Basically if there’s someone who knows how to move with determination + will power on ultra races, it’s Joao!

"Before I came across Functional Footwear by Joe Nimble, I was out and with self-made Tarahumara sandals. Now I am unstoppable with my Joe Nimble Trail Addict. This shoe combines stability, protection, and grip and above all the valued Toefreedom without losing my beloved feeling of freedom. This shoe combines all the demands I have on a shoe."
