Why Choose Baliston: 5 Key Differentiators

When it comes to footwear, comfort, technology, and sustainability are key factors that discerning consumers look for. Baliston, a trailblazer in the industry, sets the standard for these criteria in ways that set Baliston apart from other brands. Let's delve into the key differentiators that make Baliston stand out in the world of footwear.


1. Fitted Insoles: Personalized Comfort

At the heart of Baliston's footwear innovation lies our fitted comfort insoles. Groundbreaking technology enables Baliston to tailor your shoes to your unique walking DNA when the shoe cushioning reaches 60% and it is time to replace the original insoles. No more sacrificing comfort for style or vice versa. With Baliston, you get the best of both worlds - shoes that look good and feel even better. Say goodbye to the one-size-fits-all approach and experience a level of comfort you never knew was possible. 

2. Advanced Wearable Tech: Addressing biomechanical concerns of the gait

Baliston doesn't stop at basic activity tracking. Instead, it goes above and beyond, mapping specific biomechanical metrics in the phases of walking commonly known as the gait cycle. While other brands rely on wrist or hand worn devices, Baliston takes measurements directly from your feet. This leads to more accurate data and adds metrics that can only be measured at your feet, ensuring that your shoes provide the support you need, exactly where you need it.

Did you know that walking in worn-out shoes can lead to imbalances and injuries? Baliston is committed to both your comfort and the environment. With the Baliston Connect™ app, you'll receive timely alerts notifying you when it's time to recycle your shoes. But here's the best part - Baliston takes care of the recycling process for you.
