The most common of orthodics might become things of the past with the introduction of the MORPH Adaptive Sole. This ingenious running shoe component would be able to modify itself automatically according to the wearer's immediate requirements. The owner would not need to initiate such adjustments manually, for the sneakers' bottoms would recognize any weaknesses and work to remedy them at once.

A winning entry in the 2013 Red Dot Design Awards, Felipe Castañeda's innovative idea is centered on the use of electroactive polymer cells within the makeup of the MORPH Adaptive Sole. Able to detect pressure, the material deflects to provide great grip, tailored specifically to the terrain on which you've chosen to jog. Customized support also means that you can exercise for longer while avoiding pain and possible injury.
