Shoe with step-in aid

The innovative shoe has a simple step-in aid to make the shoe easier to put on and take off.

The sole has a bending point that makes it easier to get into the shoe. By stepping into the shoe and pressing on the heel, the shoe closes automatically. The shoe can be put on independently without help.

Short description of the invention

This is a technique for a special functional shoe. People who cannot put on their shoes on their own do not need help from others, nor do they have to use a shoehorn or their hands. Thanks to the special mechanism, the shoe can be put on easily while standing and without having to bend down.


No bending and no shoehorn

To put on this shoe, you don't have to bend down to the shoe or need a shoehorn or your hands. You simply step into the shoe and it encloses your foot.

secure hold on the foot

The shoe provides a secure hold. The integrated fasteners in the shoe keep the front and back of the shoe securely together and the shoe closed during use.

comfort in every model

Whether for everyday wear or as a running shoe, the technology of this shoe can be transferred to a variety of shoe models and customised as desired.

Due to its low weight, the wearing comfort of the shoe is particularly high.

especially for the older generation

Older people in particular benefit from this invention, as they do not need help putting on and taking off their shoes. This enables them to put on their shoes independently and without outside help, despite physical limitations.

also conceivable for wide feet

Variant for wide feet

The innovative shoe with step-in aid can also be offered in different widths to provide the best possible comfort. Many older people have water retention, flat feet or simply too wide feet, so everyone has the option of finding the right shoe for their needs.
