About Us

OUR COMPANY MISSION AT SOLE MECHANICS IS TO REINSTATE NATURAL MOVEMENT - TO LET YOUR FOOT, DO ITS THING THROUGH NATURAL MOTION FOOTWEAR!

The Human Body was a functioning masterpiece; but as we hit the information age with an increasingly unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle, we have become what we call a 'Zoo Human'.
All Humans need to reinstate naturally to increase lower limb strength, improve posture and for better efficiency and performance. We call this process 'Human Renewal'
For children we want them to remain un-compromised, to use WHAT YA MUMMA GAVE YA! and help children reach each required milestone.
A growing army of medical practitioners, personal trainers and coaches agree that
barefoot is best adults and children for work, rest and play.
Sole Mechanics specialise in Human Renewal and the Mechanics can help you on your journey to reinstate natural movement. As the old adage states, use it or lose it but it's not always as easy as it sounds. The Mechanics can help you on your transition and help you to live pure.
This is why we stock only the best Natural Motion Footwear such as VIVOBAREFOOT, NIKE FREE, BOBUX, INNOV8 and VIBRAM. Providing healthy feet for all ages. 

NATURAL MOTION FOOTWEAR IS A TYPE OF SHOE THAT AIMS TO EMULATE THE BAREFOOT EXPERIENCE, NO MATTER WHAT AGE YOU ARE. IT SHOULD ALLOW FOR KEY THINGS SUCH AS 

Engaging the Big Toe and Body's kinetic chain used in movement. By allowing as many of the foot's 200,000 nerve ending's to send info back to the brain. Using the foot's Natural Muscles, Tendons and Ligaments.

 

TO ACHIEVE THIS, CERTAIN ELEMENTS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IN DESIGN AND CHOICE OF FOOTWEAR:

PITCH/DROP

The difference in thickness between heel and thickness in the toe area. Ideally zero or no more than 6mm to allow the foot to naturally support load in movement.
 

FLEX

Look for a shoe that is flexible in all directions rather than rigid underfoot with little to no toe spring to allow your foot to move correctly.

 

WEIGHT

Lightweight - under 300 grams on average for running shoes.

NEUTRAL

No motion or stability control as this interferes with natural foot function when weight bearing.

 

PUNCTURE RESISTANT

For peace of mind that you can run on any terrain without fear of the environment tearing up the soles of your feet, especially in urban and off-road areas.
