Footwear Technology

THE SHAPE OF COMFORT
No two feet are alike, which is why there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all. Your foot wasn’t made flat, so why is almost all footwear made that way? SOLE Footbeds and Sandals mold to fit your unique foot perfectly. Generic insoles and flat footwear simply cannot offer the same level of arch support, control and comfort that SOLE products can.

CUSTOM FIT FOR YOUR UNIQUE FEET
The benefits of our orthopedic shape are personalized for your unique foot. The arch height adjusts to your required level, but does not flatten out. The forefoot takes the shape of the balls of your feet and toes, and the aligning heel cup supports your unique heel shape. This creates a continuous contact point across the soles of your feet, leaving no area unsupported. It all adds up to a superior fit, and unrivaled support and comfort.

Midsole Technology:

BROOKS DNA

Brooks DNA is a groundbreaking cushioning material that provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds. Working with BioMoGo, Brooks DNA responds to your every step, dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection as the pace changes.

BIOMOGO

We’ve taken the long-lasting cushioning of our MoGo midsole and made it more environmentally friendly. A non-toxic, natural additive in the BioMoGo compound encourages anaerobic microbes to munch away 50 times faster once it hits the landfill.

BIOS-257

BioS-257 is a new, greener formulation of our traditional S-257 material. When the material enters a landfill, a non-toxic natural additive within the BioS-257 compound enables the midsole to break down faster, making it a more sustainable choice.

HYDROFLOW®

Dynamic viscous fluid units for heel and forefoot enhance midsole cushioning–attenuating shock with industry-leading dampening and comfort.

DRB® ACCEL

Shank-like thermoplastic device provides torsional rigidity to midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently.

FULL-LENGTH S-257 MIDSOLE

Exclusive midsole compound decreases breakdown by 15% while providing excellent energy return and cushioning every stride.

e1

Midsole compound works in conjunction with HydroFlow® and BioMoGo to progressively dampen the forces of energy that occur during the contact phase.

e2

Midsole compound is used to enhance resilience under the metatarsals, resulting in a more powerful propulsion.

S-257 CUSHOLE

Durable, energy-efficient midsole compound utilized as an insole board for even more cushioning and flexibility.

PROGRESSIVE DIAGONAL ROLLBAR

Our tri-density PDRB® midsoles are biomechanically engineered to allow for progressive pronation control and to create smoother transitions from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase.

PIVOT POSTING

Independent, medial-lateral Pivot posts are shaped to minimize ground contact surface area, reducing the destabilizing effect of trail irregularities.

BALLISTIC ROCK SHIELD

Toughened thermoplastic EVA sheath between the outsole and midsole protects the forefoot by spreading out point loads from sharp objects.

DIAGONAL ROLLBAR (DRB®)

A high-density post at the medial arch is engineered for pronation control and creates a smoother transition from midstance phase into the propulsion phase.

 

Outsole Technology:

HPR GREEN

This durable and long-wearing outsole compound is made with dispersed silica, resulting in premium wet-dry traction for excellent skid resistance and a more environmentally friendly composition.

HPR PLUS

A higher durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that wears longer.

ENGINEERED HYPER POD CONFIGURATION

Midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering exceptional flexibility and unrestricted forefoot ride.

ENGINEERED STABLEPOD CONFIGURATION

Midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering maximum stability and resposiveness.

ENGINEERED CUSH POD CONFIGURATION

Midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering maximum cushioning and flexibility.

ENGINEERED MC POD CONFIGURATION

Midsole and outsole components are engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offereing maximum motion control and flexibility.

 

Upper Technology:

ELEMENT

Upper technology featuring superior microfiber construction to provide weather protection in a light, supple, quite fabric that doesn’t sacrifice breathablility, durability, or comfort.
