Technology

Our innovative sole design (patent pending) comprises interlocking, dovetailed layers of shock-absorbent materials, to make a substantially thicker supporting 'cushion' than with standard footwear. The revolutionary shock-absorbent sole is 300% thicker than with standard footwear, providing day-long comfort and protection.

Professor Jim Richards (University of Central Lancashire Biomechanics Dept. and Research Lead for the Allied Health Research Unit) evaluated the shock absorbency of our soles and, thus, our shoes' ability to provide comfort and protection. He found that Swift & Co shoes offered greater impact reduction than:

  • Conventional casual shoes;
  • Welted dress shoes;
  • Even trainers!

Of the shoes tested, they were the most successful at minimising stress in the wearer's ankle and knee joints.
