Scientists come up with technology to create the perfect pair of shoes

Scientists from the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia, with the support of companies from Spain, France, Switzerland and Portugal, have developed a system that adapts shoes to a specific foot.

Shoes created using ShopInstantShoe technology do not look different from ordinary shoes, but inside there is a layer of special material between the soft inner lining and the leather of the outer side. It consists of leather fibers and nitinol, a shape memory alloy of titanium and nickel. Customers only need to scan their feet with a handheld device in a store. The resulting data is loaded into the Shoptool device, which adapts the shoes to the contours of each customer's feet.

If she suddenly changes her mind or doesn't like the shoes, the shoes can be returned to the store without any problems. With the help of the same Shoptool, the shoes will be returned to the "default" performance, and they will again go to the store window. ShopInstantShoe's technology is due to hit the market within this year.
