Leisure, work and sports are possible thanks to underrated yet essential element: shoes.
Despite common feeling, shoes are not just a matter of fashion or design, but as Christian Dior seems to have said:
Shoes are the most important part of clothing. It is the detail that knows the value of comfort more than anything else
Beyond the aesthetic dimension, therefore, shoes must meet several requirements and always ensure comfort and maximum performance in every situation.
The fundamental role of shoes
This is only possible if each part of the shoe is designed and developed with specific features, components, and materials. Among these elements, the sole plays a key role.
Soles: a fundamental component in shoes
The sole influences the shoe’s ability to absorb impact and provide adequate support and traction on all terrain, including slippery and unstable surfaces.
It is therefore essential that each shoe is designed according to the activity for which it is intended, whether it is sports training, outdoor walking or cycling.
The choice of shoe will be made not only according to the motor activity one wishes to practice, but also with respect to one’s subjectivity.
We are not talking about aesthetic tastes, but rather about anatomo-functional characteristics.
Therefore, it constitutes, first of all, a preventive action – sometimes, even curative (if a disorder related precisely to the use of wrong shoes insists). What is more, proper footwear can optimize performance in athletic gesture to an even relevant degree. In conclusion, therefore, it is essential to emphasize the key role of this product in everyday life and, in particular, to highlight the element that makes it possible to experience a footwear of the highest quality: the sole.
