Having cultivated over a decade of research findings to crack the code to high heel pain and subsequently innovate a patented insole product that ticks all the boxes for fit, form and function.

To summarise, the prior research has identified that in a heel over 4cm the subtlar joint inverts, the forefoot pronates (forefoot valgus) and the peroneal complex exertion is two fold. However the research has overlooked that activation of the Windlass Mechanism causes the foot to consistently supinate and therefore the peroneals to excessively exert to hold a neutral foot position. Once the peroneals fatigue, the flexors and extensors over exert (causing toe contracture) and the wearer is at significant risk of experiencing ankle injuries and debilitating foot pain. 

Our EB STILETTO patented design focuses support on the lateral foot with a full length valgus wedge, to prevent over-inversion of the rearfoot and support the forefoot valgus position, subsequently unloading the peroneals, minimising muscle fatigue and preventing inversion ankle injuries. 

The 12 minute webinar (below) was created as a technical overview of the science and product design.
