Shoe Cue –Serious Athletes have proper running mechanics. Train like a serious athlete. Use the ShoeCueTextured Insole. www.shoecue.com
Our feet initiate and control almost every single movement we make. Despite this, we ignore their importance every time we put on shoes. The nerves in our feet require texture, vibration, or sheering force to register important sensory feedback. Any normal shoe or insole cuts off this connection by separating our feet from the earth. We don’t FEEL our connection to the ground any more.
Enter the ShoeCue. The Cue uses a patent-pending, textured, thermoplastic heel-plate that reconnects your feet to the ground. With vibration and texture, it wakes up the soles of your feet and reconnects them to your brain. Closing this neural loop allows for enhanced control and understanding of how we are connected to the world. In real-time we improve self awareness and proprioception.
