With the DGS outsole system, we have fundamentally redefined what is possible for all types of footwear. The Mark I represents the first peg on the board in the future of footwear.
DGS Outsole Explanation:
No shoe before has ever come close to the level of energy absorption in the FP Footwear. Expect an entirely new experience.
Because the DGS outsole has been hollowed out and filled with soft “FluidX Protection” material in the place of traditional rubbers and foams, the FP shoe has superior board feel and flexibility. It’s like a kungfu shoe that absorbs all the energy.
In addition to our revolutionary DGS outsole, each FP shoe comes stock with our signature Kingfoam Insoles. yes, that’s right. You’ll never have to fear a foot impact injury again.
A deep heel cup and arch guide are built into the outsole which guides the impact and helps the ankle stay in a stable neutral position on big impacts and jumps, avoiding over pronation and helping to prevent serious injuries.
You no longer need a thick padded tongue to escape the pain of the board smacking your foot. “FluidX protection” material padded tongues are thin, breathable and protect from even the hardest board smacks.
While other shoe cushioning materials start bad and end worse, our FluidX insert will continue to absorb energy from the first day of use to the last day. Simply put, it will out live the shoe.
360 – HELL PROTECTION:
Our FluidX protection insert fully wraps the entire heel and even into the back wall of the shoe providing 360 degree heel protection.
DGS OUTSOLE SYSTEM:
Dynamic Gait Stabilization Outsole System.
Dynamic: The outsole adapts to each step and point of impact, absorbing nearly all shock energy.
Gait : Built in heel cup and arch support guide the adaptive reaction of “FluidX Non Newtonian Protection™” to support your foot’s bio mechanical performance.
Stabilization: During large impacts stabilization of the joints is supported.
Bio Mechanically correct outsole
Shoe outsoles are flat, however the foot is not. A leading cause of injury is due to the heel disproportionately taking blunt impacts on the flat bottom surface alone.
We hollowed out the traditional outsole and left an anatomically correct heel cup and arch support to distribute impact force across the entire surface of the heel.
FluidX Non Newtonian Protection™
Simply stepping on a hollow outsole with a preformed shape would not be functional, as every person has a different shaped foot.
We filled the hollow area with FluidX Non Newtonian Protection™ due to it’s unique adaptive properties.
It is fluid and soft in its resting state.
It becomes firm on impact while taking the unique shape of the foot and absorbing nearly all of the shock energy.
It adapts to both the shape of the foot as well as the outsole stabilization structures, guiding and stabilizing hard impacts.
Due to these properties, the DGS outsole is more flexible, has better board feel and absorbs at least twice as much energy as traditional vulc or cupsoles.
Adapts to every impact
As your foot impacts the ground, the DGS outsole reacts to each unique pressure point.
The stabilization structure of the outsole guides the reaction of the FluidX Non Newtonian Protection™ insert, as does your foot, resulting in:
Stabilization upon landing
Distribution of impact across the entire surface of the heel rather than just the bottom.
Prevention of over pronation in extreme impacts
High reduction of shock energy damage to the body.
The DGS outsole system is an original technology created by FP which has been named an “industry changer” by Transworld Business. Worldwide Patents Pending. Welcome to the Future.
