Shock energy is a leading cause of fatigue and trauma in all athletes.
If you try to play basketball on grass, the ball simply won’t bounce. Natural earth surfaces typically absorb energy while artificial surfaces such as concrete return it. This is good for the basketball, but bad for your body.
The average shoe absorbs about 42% of shock energy. Replacing the stock insole with an insole from Footprint Insole Technology increases that energy absorption up to 91%.
