How the shoes are made

We started developing our future shoe line already in 2015. The shoes are created according to our “inside-to-outside” approach where the design of a shoe is created around and works together with an insole to maximize the effect and benefits for your feet, knees, hips and lower back.

Human body moves differently depending on the shape, drop and the heel height of the footwear, that is why we base our collections on two world patents for two different variants of dynamic orthopedic insoles: one for flats and one for heels - like our signature pump Denise.

Every shoe model is tested both in a lab environment and by selected customers or patients of partner orthopedic clinics of Stockholm. We check the fit, function and gather valuable feedback. In average, it takes up to seven different samples until a shoe model is approved and included in our collection – what ́s best for our customers is our top priority.

The lasts and the shapes of Stinaa.Js footwear fit most feet, provide shock absorption and relief in each of the four phases of giat (walking, running) such as: contact phase (heelstrike), foot-flat phase (loading response), mid-stance and propulsive phase (push-off, acceleration, mid-swing, deceleration). The desired effect and the most important feature of our footwear is providing stability so that the body’s biomechanics are as optimal as possible and your feet, knees, hips and back land into correct neutral position.

Our dynamic orthopedic insoles have been developed during 34 years of active work with patients and based on 3D-scans of millions of feet across the world. Every insole is tested and upon test completion the drawings, functional sketches and material selection are sent to our trusted manufacturer Bauerfeind in Germany. The materials are carefully selected from Italy, Spain and Portugal and then collected in Portugal where the shoes are assembled by hand. Each shoe passes at least twenty-three hands during the manufacturing process.

With Stinaa.J you don ́t have to compromise between well-being, comfort and style.
