Slope Midsole / Midsole

Slope Midsole
Slope Midsole

Slope Midsole is a sneaker that automatically adapts the sole of the shoe to the user's individual conditions. When the user steps on the Slope Midsole, the induction version that comes into direct contact with the sole automatically detects the user's plantar pressure, and this data is then placed in the mid-bottom processor analysis operation. The Slope Midsole can automatically judges the pressure on the ankle and knee, depending on the foot pressure of the user and make corresponding partial pressure scheme. Finally, Slope Midsole uses data processing to control the pressure of the airbags in the midsole to create a slightly tilted sole.
