About STI

Skip to the rants (36)


The Sole Technology Institute, also known as STI, is the world's first and only biomechanics research organization dedicated to the study of skateboarding. What the hell is biomechanics? That's just a fancy word for how we measure all of the stress your body goes through while jumping off huge objects during everyday skateboarding.

We even have a big lab full of stuff like handrails, flat bars and mini-ramps surrounded by sensitive measuring instruments. Why? So we can have fun goofing off at lunch, of course. Just kidding. Really, it's to test and develop new technologies to make the highest performing skateboarding footwear around--shoes that improve the performance of, reduce the risk of injury to, and increase the longevity and enjoyment of skateboarders everywhere.
