CHOOSE YOUR STYLE
Always wished to be your own shoe designer? Start by measuring your foot and selecting your size. You can then pick from several options for your insole, midsole, and outsole design. Each has a description to help you make your choice and you can see what it will look like immediately in the 3D model. Color and upper style add to the individual look of each pair. Finally, select your different compression levels for your heal, arch, and toe zones to best meet your needs. It’s that simple.
BUILT FOR 3D PRINTING
From top to bottom, the Impact F1 was designed to allow for ultimate customizability (We think that is a word!). We wanted to make a shoe where the customer could become the designer. Using our proprietary automation, we can create a printable shoe file in under 10 minutes with no human involvement. This file can take into account hundreds of thousands of different configurations! The days of singular molds done to produce thousands of the same shoe are gone and individual design is the new reality. We will even put a special message on the bottom of your shoe so everyone knows it’s yours.
CHECK OUT OUR “LASER”
That’s right, your shoe is being made with a “Laser”. Were not sure why we are using quotes since it is a real laser. Using our partners technology of Selective Laser Sintering, a custom footbed can be created using the 3D file process we provide. A layer of a thermoplastic powder is deposited on the bed of the printer and the design of your custom shoe is lasered onto it. Ten’s of thousands of layers are stacked on top of each other building one of the strongest flip flops around. Lasers and thermoplastics, pretty cool huh!
BUILT TO LAST
Super strong thermoplastics are not the only ingredient used in what makes this flip flop super sustainable. We are using a high tech Vapor Smoothing process from one of our vendors. This is some cool science stuff that changes the molecular structure of the material in order to make it super smooth on your skin, water tight, and easily cleaned. The fact that it also makes it even stronger to resist wear is an added plus. With the use of our modular upper, you can wear this shoe daily and feel good that you have something that will last. Don’t worry, when it does wear out, send it back to us and we will reuse the thermoplastic material in the footbed for another part. Long lasting and circular, the opposite of all those cheap flip flops in landfills!
LATTICE HELP YOU
See what we did there? Lattice technology brings a completely different feel to footwear compared to injection molded rubber and foam. With the ability to fully change the geometry of the midsole of our F1 Flip Flop, you get to determine the amount of responsive cushioning our lattice structures provide. These lattice structures are not only incredibly responsive, but they also require less material to produce. That along with a high level of resilience make these flip flops feel like nothing you have ever worn before..
THREE SEPARATE ZONES TO CUSTOMIZE
Every foot is different and each person has different needs. Flat Feet? High Arch? Toe soarness? Heal Pressure? There are so many different conditions that can have an Impact on the comfort of your feet when wearing a flip flop. We made the interior of the shoe completely customized. You can pick the level of compression and responsive cushioning that you desire for your heal, arch, and toes. Needs something firmer, select our ultra firm option with more responsive support. Want something more cushioned, our open lattice structures provide the highest level of responsive cushioning while still providing good support.
TESTED FOR OPTIMAL CUSHIONING
Don’t just take our word for it. We put our lattice structures through testing at an independent lab to measure the compression level as more weight, pressure, and force are applied. After testing a number of lattice structures, we selected choices that tested optimaly to our four levels of compression. Our most responsive lattice, Ultra Compression measured at 3 times the level of supportive compression. This means you get a supportive midsole that also responds to your foot and allows for it to absorb the pressure being applied to it. For you it means an incredibly comfortable feel!
FUNCTIONAL BUT ALSO STYLISH
We wanted the F1 Flip Flop to look different than any other shoe on the market. Lattice technology is not just incredibly efficient and comfortable, it also looks really cool. With this in mind, we allow you to choose your midsole design separately from the comfort lattices found in the interior of the shoe. It is like having your cake and eating it too! Our latticed midsoles don’t just look cool, they are also water tight so nothing from the outside can get into the interior of your shoe. This flip flop was built to last and no detail was spared in making this fully customized shoe be the best you ever wore!
