We are not designed to walk on pavement and concrete

Our bodies thrive best in nature, on uneven and varied ground. In our urbanized daily lives, we mostly walk on hard and flat surfaces. This is not the environment humans are created for. It can lead to pain and discomfort in our feet, knees, and back.

The foot is the body's foundation

The foot is the body's foundation and affects posture and well-being, all the way up to the head. Misalignments in the foot can create imbalances and result in improper stress on the feet, knees, and back. Good foot health is essential for a healthy posture and to avoid muscle and skeletal problems. Therefore, the choice of shoes can impact overall health. The image section below shows the most common foot misalignments.

70% of the information the brain needs to coordinate stability and balance in the body comes from our feet.


GaitLine is a Norwegian shoe manufacturer that develops and produces advanced, technological shoes. We utilize our patented Sensory GaitLine Technology in all our products. SGL technology is composed of three main factors that balance the foot and step, promoting a natural gait and supporting a healthy foot position on hard and flat surfaces.

This results in a positive chain reaction throughout the body, where proper foot positioning can contribute to improved posture and reduced stress on the feet, knees, and back, leading to better overall physical health and performance.

Documented Effect

We engaged IPSOS MMI to ask our customers, do the shoes really work?

8 out of 10 customers responded that GaitLine had a positive impact on their physical health and daily performance, experiencing fewer discomforts after a day in GaitLine compared to other shoes.
9 out of 10 customers with foot problems experienced less pain in their feet. Foot pain includes conditions like plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and hallux valgus.

8 out of 10 experienced less pain in their feet, knees, and lower back.

The founder of GaitLine, Håvard Engell, gained his expertise as a professional ballet dancer and then as a coach at the Olympiatoppen.

At the Olympiatoppen, he was responsible for technical performance, balance and injury prevention in 30 different sports. Håvard is world-renowned for his knowledge of balance and walking, an experience he has incorporated into his own shoe brand, GaitLine.

The technology in the shoe is based on biomechanical and neurological research and is based on how the foot moves throughout the entire gait cycle.
