When it comes to finding shoes that are perceived as good for you or healthy for your feet people always revert to the words. I’m looking for a shoe with “good support”. Good support, however, can come in many different forms, different parts of the foot can be supported in different ways. When shops or people talk about foot support, they are generally referring to a type of padding underneath the arch that lifts the arch or prevents the arch from lowering. In some cases, this can be a very important place to have support that the foot in today’s unnatural environment requires, making foot support far more complicated than just placing something underneath the arch. That’s why during Solescape Shoes extensive research and development process, have found a way to support the sides of the foot all around the heel towards the arch to substantially provide guard rails for the foot.
Picture someone in rehab learning to walk or use their legs after having been injured. There will be guardrails on the left and on the right, and as they walk up onto the platform, they hold the left and right bar. This allows them to walk with support from the sides of their body. These guardrails are very useful in guiding the person so that they can use their arms as their legs learn to walk in a very similar fashion, Hind3+ technology supports the calcaneus which is your heel bone the bone above it is the tailless, which is the rear end of your arch to prevent the food from collapsing into directions either towards the inner side, or the outer side.
The difference in Hind3+ technology is when you have these guardrails supporting the foot from the side, it can control more than one movement. Such movements towards the outside just like a person walking and holding onto the rails. Hind3+ technology helps you control any collapse towards the inside, while providing arch support at the same time. Ordinary heel cups and or padding are placed underneath the arch and only prevents the foot from collapsing inwards. The Hind3+ technology is a guardrail that supports the foot all around stabilizing it. What makes Hind3+ technology different from your average firm heel cup or side support is that it’s extended and is longer than usual. Therefore, your average heel cup just sits around the heel whereas the Hind3+ technology extends all the way to just below or in front of your ankle.

This guardrail being extended all the way can give the foot far greater control reduction in abnormal movements, preventing fatigue and incorrect foot movements because of how Hind3+ technology is positioned. It is essentially a reinforced material that is placed within the inner and outer sides of the shoes, and not directly in contact with the skin whereas the high-quality leather is in contact with the skin. Giving maximum comfort with a strong firm hold on the foot.
