SOLS uses 3D-printing technology to make the much-avoided subject of orthotics relevant and attractive. We're in a technological age now where eyesight can be fixed with lasers in a matter of ten minutes, prosthetic limbs are on the verge of becoming mainstream, and yet, orthotic technology is surprisingly behind in the times.

But of course, invention wouldn't exist without necessity, which in this case is so powerful that SOLS has bypassed a couple of decades of orthotic development to dive right into 3D-printed insoles.

This startup NYC-based company is offering the ultimate customization in the long-neglected category through a brand new, yet widely practiced technology. The best part is, they'll easily slip into your shoes, look good and feel great.
