2013 Winter X-Games Athletes Team Up With ALINE ALINEment™ Experts

2013 Winter X-Games Athlete's LoungeThe ESPN X-Games are amongst the most pulse pounding, stand up and shout, “Wow they can really fly” events.  From traveling down a mountain side over 60 mph to highflying acrobats such as the double McTwist 1260, there’s no question, these athletes take their gear to the extreme!  (p.s. for those wondering, a double McTwist 1260 isn’t your next McDonald’s order.  It’s a combination of 2 flips and 3 ½ spins…check out Shaun White’s version here)
During this year’s 2013 Winter X-Games in Aspen, we were privileged to have the team from ALINE System Insoles behind the scenes and gearing up the X-Games athletes with their revolutionary line of insoles using PORON® Performance Technology.  Athletes from all disciplines agree, ALINE has broken the mold of insole design by creating an engineered suspension system—for your feet!
The PORON Team would like to thank ALINE for the awesome pics and continuing to support the X-Games athletes in their endeavors to break boundaries and simply “Wow” us!  We’ll continue to follow them as they make their way around the country this year fitting athletes at marathons, golf tournaments, cycling races, sports expos and other events. See if they’ll be in your neighborhood soon!
