When the appetite for your sport is insatiable. When that wilderness you just crushed leaves the scent of sweat and serenity on your clothes as a constant reminder of where you really belong. When you wish your feet were bionic so you can cover 20 more gnarly miles to attain satiation. That’s the moment a little extra help ensures that you’re properly fueling your outdoor soul – that’s where currexSole comes into play.

On Performance and Design…
currexSole understands that like fingerprints, your feet and adventures are unique. Every sport presents different challenges − as does every foot. To ensure that you get the most out of your footwear (and endeavors), currexSole utilizes scientific sports-research data and a sport specific fit to put you in perfect harmony with the footwear of your choosing.

Spanning the gamut from golf to hiking, and pretty much everything in between, the currexSole range includes six models. Each model comes in three individual profile heights so you can find the perfect sole-mate courtesy of a simple series of questions that helps determine your foot profile. Once you find the right fit, currexSole pairs your feet with the simplicity of support in all the places you need it most.

Every currexSole offers a triple layer design for optimal insulation to keep your feet warm, comfy, sweat and blister free, even during the most grueling days on jagged terrain. Deep ergonomic heel cup returns the natural fit and feel that can be robbed by mass produced footwear that strives to be all things to all people.

PORON cushioning in the ball and heel of the insert offer a slow rebound for the least amount of stress and trauma to the beating your feet take from ascending mountains, running repeats, or just getting through the work day down at the docks.  It also ensures that the important metatarsals are comforted during the most intense portion of your activity so your digits can keep digesting the dirt and rock you’re force feeding them.

Most inserts use hard materials that don’t allow for the flexibility your foot needs during dynamic activities. By contrast, currexSole relies upon 3D DAT technology in the arch of the foot. This dynamic mid-sole bridge is made from a nylon composite and helps support and guides the foot rather than outright control it. currexSole notes that this mid-sole bridge is designed to store mechanical energy like a spring which results in an impressive propulsion and less foot fatigue.

Notes from the trail..
Not every outdoor enthusiast utilizes inserts. In part that’s due to the cost of inserts, and in part, it’s due to the misnomer that inserts are only for those who suffer from foot or lower leg injuries. The reality is that inserts can be a tremendous addition to any footwear and allow you to get the most out of those pricey new run kicks, hikers or work shoes that you spent your hard earned money on.

And while there’s a vast array of options to choose from, there’s a reason currexSole has been Europe’s most awarded insert brand. The range of sport specific inserts backed by sport specific science offers a feast for your feet that will keep them nourished and satisfied. But remember, it’s not just your feet that take a beating during your outdoor pursuits – your entire body feels the ramifications of the interaction that takes place between your feet, your shoes and the world below. And to a person, each of our field team agreed that above and beyond merely putting the foot in a perfect performance position, the currexSoles helped put the body in better position for performance.

Bottom Line…
Your feet. Your sport. Your sole-mate. currexSole.
