The device is capable of relieving pressure on the heel and is integrated into the sole of the shoe, without interfering with its design.
Born in Naples, Italy, shoe designer Diego Dolcini conquered fashion. His portfolio includes luxury brands such as Balmain, Gucci, Pucci and Dolce & Gabbana. In addition to the heels, the designer was invited by the Italian company Gait-Tech to design the comfortable pieces. It is a technological device embedded in the sole during the manufacturing phase, which is capable of relieving pressure in high-top shoes.
Intended to absorb shock from walking and redistribute pressure throughout the feet, insoles can also prevent long-term health problems by providing more relief to the lower extremities. After 30 years of study, testing and research, the item is now being developed by the Italian company Gait-Tech.
The technological novelty was presented to the public during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA), between January 5 and 8. The biomechanical device is one of the 300 finalists at the international technology event.
Designer Diego Dolcini has created shoes for celebrities such as Madonna, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, and Rihanna.
The Italian was invited to sign the Spring/Summer 2023 collection in comfortable heels.
Chip insole is designed to redistribute foot pressure on the ground, cushioning shock.
After 30 years of research, this is the first sole made from the shoe. Improves stability more than removables.
In an interview with MaiOnline, a Gai-Tech representative reported that slippers with the device will soon be sold. The official launch will be a capsule collection for the Spring/Summer 2023 season.
“Heels have always represented the best in terms of image, attractiveness and femininity. But, at the same time, they have always been synonymous with discomfort and pain when worn for a long period of time,” said Gait co-founder and CEO -Tech. Andrea Goldoni.

The novelty has also already been patented by the Italian Patent and Trademark Office (UIBM, in the original abbreviation)
When inserted directly into the sole of the shoe, the foil does not interfere with the design
According to data collected by the company, about 70% of women between the ages of 18 and 68 claim to be experts in wearing high heels, but say that by wearing them they are “sacrificing their health for visual aesthetics.” To help decompress the toes and joints of the feet, the ergonomics of the shoe offer a flatter version.
