Currently shoes are designed to simply meet the needs of a typical person’s foot and there are few products in this sector aimed exclusively at blind users.Normal shoes and shoe insoles protect the users foot and convey some information about the texture and material they are walking on.
There are some knobs which can move up and down under the bottom of the front sole. So when the blind’s front paw touch the tough ground, the knobs will change at the same time, during this, the sensitive shoes can replace the stick and become an easy tool to know the terrain of the road.
The aim is to increase the sensitivity of blind people.
