What's the big idea?
Kids should be able to play the sport they love without unnecessary pain and discomfort or avoidable injury. The design of our first product line has been tested and is ready for production and market release.
Unlike other insole/orthotic manufacturers, the support, stability, and cushioning aspects of NxtMile Sport Insoles match the movements, playing surface, and footwear specific to each sport to optimize performance.
Describe the nearest player in your field.
Several insole/orthotic manufacturers exist.
Each provides products designed for adult men and women. While some offer youth sizes the design features are derived from their adult products.
How are you different from that player?
NxtMile’s Sport Insole designs are tailored to the age of the athlete and the sport they play.
No other manufacturer provides insoles specifically engineered for young (8-14) and “varsity” (14+) athletes to reduce overuse injuries including knee and heel pain, plantar fasciitis, and turf toe.
How's the world different with your idea in it?
It is estimated that 70% of the 50.0 million youth (8-14) athletes will experience heel and knee pain.
Product testing was conducted among 100 youth soccer players. Our design reduced heel and knee pain in 92% of the young athletes wearing our soccer insoles.
