AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STABLITY DEFECT
In All Footwear Soles Should Be Eliminated
as Quickly as Possible By the Footwear Industry

THE DISCOVERY 

In medical science the human ankle is well-known to be highly unstable and often sprained.  The ankle is extremely unstable in any shoe tilted into a typical ankle spraining position.  So it was a major scientific discovery and incredibly shocking to uncover the real truth: the same ankle that is unstable in a shoe is naturally stable when barefoot!   Obviously, then, shoes are unstable, not the ankle.   Besides this conclusive photographic proof, anyone can easily prove it with their own shoes (but only with safe support).

THE PROBLEM

 

The effect of this previously invisible defect is astonishing.  It likely causes many or most of the serious falls that result in $129 billion in medical care costs due to 6,460,000 ER visits, 1,400,000 hospitalizations and 40,000 fall deaths in 2019 in the U.S. To put in context, 43,000 traffic deaths occur annually in the U.S.

A POTENTIAL SOLUTION:

A first step has already been taken. A new experimental test prototype, a stable baresole™ has been designed to have safe lateral stability like the barefoot. It has proven successful in testing so simple it can be verified by anyone

Much better than existing footwear, it is also uniquely comfortable completely different, the baresole becomes almost invisible to the wearer. Factory-built, using only existing footwear technologies that are free and open, its design is not covered by utility patents.

The experimental test prototype baresole™ is incorporated in a FRAMPTON ELLIS™ slide, which was designed and developed by FRAMPTON ELLIS at Anatomic Research in collaboration with athletic footwear industry experts in design and manufacturing at i-generator.

ORDER THE FRAMPTON ELLIS™ BARESOLE™ SLIDES FOR TESTING:

The experimental prototype slide samples are NOT for public sale to consumers, only to footwear companies with an ongoing, verifiable business. 
No individual consumer orders will be accepted.

BE FORWARNED: THIS IS A REAL EXPERIMENT.

By wearing these baresole™ slides, you will become an actual TEST PILOT.

As one of the first wearers of the experimental prototype FRAMPTON ELLIS™ slide in its very limited first edition – actually its first test production – you will become a true test pilot directly involved in the most advanced research in footwear sole technology. You will become part of a leading edge sole research experiment – the first pre-public test of a unique new footwear sole. The baresoleis a test prototype of a potentially new basic paradigm for all future footwear soles – the first with naturally safe stability like that of the barefoot.
