Full effective toe length and new design contribute to a more fluid and natural progression from heel strike to toe off than a conventional energy storing and return foot.
Over a lifetime of steps, the potential health benefits are clear: by decreasing load and improving dynamics, both individual and collective costs may be reduced.

NOTE: Study results only apply to the standard Pro-Flex foot.
The Pro-Flex® foot cover features lightweight construction and a grippy sole for barefoot stability on wet, slick surfaces. It is easy to clean, adapts to a range of footwear and has a natural arch and footprint.
All Pro-Flex feet feature a unique 3-blade design with a footblade that incorporates a full effective toe lever and a more anatomical split toe. This innovative design helps generate exceptional mechanical power and a fluid, natural progression from heel strike to toe-off.
