The enormous impact forces generated during skateboarding push pressures underneath the foot to the limits and can cause over-stress injuries. With the latest cutting-edge research from STI in hand, our designers and engineers have created STI Foam™ Footbeds to help relieve these pressures.
Our research has allowed us to specify exactly how much force and pressure needs to be absorbed and precisely where to place key support elements to spare the delicate structures of the foot. But that’s not enough. We also tested dozens of materials to find unique systems that absorb the most pressure and maintain their special cushioning properties after hours and hours of skating.
