characteristics

Reduces the load on the foot by buffering impact during touch down while running or jumping.

STRUCTURE

Shear deformation is a process of altering the inclination of the midsole or gel insert, and alternatively creating grooves in the sole in consideration of vertical force distribution. By altering inclination, or the direction of grooves, it is possible to increase the cushioning properties of the materials. *The illustrations are images.
STRUCTURE

background

The landing act of running and jumping puts a heavy load on your feet, many times that of your body weight. While shoes are equipped with cushioning to absorb this impact, there is a limit to how much cushioning can be added to the sole of a shoe. We've developed a structure to produce cushioning properties within the limited area of the shoe's sole.
