Shoe FAQ

and a few facts you probably didnĀ“t know.

What is GaitLine?

GaitLine is an innovative and biomechanically advanced footwear company of Norwegian origin, providing solutions for the standing and walking human being.

What does gait mean?

A manner of walking. A step or a stride.

What is SGLā„¢?

Our patented Sensory Gait Line; SGLā„¢, is the heart of the GaitLineā„¢ shoe-technology. The SGLā„¢ technology is optimizing the weight distribution on the foot and activating proper alignment throughout your body while standing and walking.

WhatĀ“s special about GaitLine footwear?

The GaitLineā„¢ shoe technology was invented to address two significant factors related to human quality of life: posture and locomotion.

  • The GaitLineā„¢ footwear is positioning the bones and joints in the foot and ankle to stimulate an optimal interaction - from the foot all the way to the top of the head.
  • The GaitLineā„¢ shoe-technology is minimizing the loading and stress on joints and soft tissue in the plantar area of the foot (the area underneath the foot) as well as knee- and hip joints.

GaitLineā„¢ footwear is gently guiding the foot and lower extremities to facilitate a harmonious posture and appropriate locomotion, reducing the stress on the muscular and skeletal system. It might absolutely be worthwhile to invest in a pair of GaitLineā„¢ shoes.

Will GaitLine shoes work for everyone?

The structural anatomical makeup and sensory system is the same amongst most humans. For every single human, the foot alone has to carry the burden of supporting the body weight, while balancing on a relatively small area. Therefore, the foot is subject to great pressure loads. The SGLā„¢ works to locate and balance the weight-distribution throughout the foot, from the moment of heel impact to toe push-off. From research we have conducted the fact that most humans have approximately the same foot structures, the SGLā„¢-technology should be a suitable solution for most people. The only exception might be people who have a severe lateral foot-position, a severe supinating foot postition.

Can I use customized orthotics or inserts in my GaitLineā„¢ shoes?

By removing the GaitLineā„¢ insole, you will find thereā€™s much space for a customized insole. Having said so, our experience is that the SGLā„¢construction of the GaitLineā„¢ shoes works similarly to most orthotics, and for most people even better than with customized orthotics.

We therefore recommend customers to test the GaitLineā„¢ shoes with the original insole before testing a customized insert. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Tell me more about your shoes.

All GaitLineā„¢ products are designed in Norway. It took five years to finalize the SGLā„¢ technology and prepare for mass production. The GaitLineā„¢ production is in Busan, South Korea. Our factory has a long lineage of skilled, experienced workers, hand-crafting every single pair of shoes. Our production manager is born Korean. He has more than 35 years of experience in shoe production, and is an important person in structuring and organizing the complexity of shoe production. Representatives from GaitLineā„¢ HQ in Norway are always present at the production line for production control. By doing so, we come to understand the unique distinctiveness (unique life) of shoe production.

We use only top quality materials, to ensure that the comfort is at the highest level. Our patented SGLā„¢ Sole construction is made of Polyurethane (PU), that has a long lasting durability, unlike Phylon and EVA materials that are most common in typical sport shoes. The GaitLineā„¢ shoes are meant for everyday use, at home, at work or on vacation. GaitLineā„¢ is developed for people living in an urban society, helping them keep up their quality of life.

We are proud to distribute a product that is 100% our own concept, both in terms of technology and design.
