SOLS allows you to create 3D-printed shoes that enhance athletic performance and improve your stride

The process of trying on shoes is never a case of one-size-fits-all. Footwear currently comes in structured sizing and three widths: narrow, medium and wide. For most consumers, finding a size range that fits is what’s typically done. But when we look at foot sizing, there are many variations and nuances to getting the right fit. That’s where SOLS comes in. SOLS, a startup based in New York, that specializes in creating personalized 3D-printed corrective insoles for footwear.

Insole height, width, length and the general topography of the foot aren’t often accounted for in the footwear designs bought to the market today. Without properly taking into account the unique quality of each wearer’s foot, poor, improper fit is often the outcome.
