why our shoes are recognized as the most comfortable in the world
All PORON Cushioning Materials continue to maintain up to 98% of their original thickness and performance through multiple uses.
The graph to the left shows how after 10K and 100K steps, the competitive low density PU’s and closed cell EVA materials break down, providing diminished comfort and performance.
Thierry Rabotin is a true modelista. This means Thierry is as concerned for the foot as he is the look of the shoe.
Our lasts are made to accommodate the foot as opposed to forcing the foot to conform the shape of the shoe.
Thierry personally designs and approves the last which creates the shape of the shoe.
Thierry Rabotin makes sure the shoe last (and hence the shape of the shoe) takes the foot into account.
While it is very true that the size and width of the foot needs to fit inside the shoe, it is much more important that the shape of the last takes into account the foot.
Thierry Rabotin will not put his name in a shoe which does not fit perfectly.
