breaking the mold

At IAMBIC, we believe in the power of individuality. When we fail to embrace it, people suffer. 27% of people are excluded from the “standard” sizing of shoes, leaving over 1 in 4 people in pain. This is a broken system that designs for the masses and ignores those who need more than just “average” shoes.

start with the last

The custom-fit shoe last (the mold that defines a shoe’s fit, form, and function) is traditionally handmade by specially trained artisans. This process can cost upward of $10,000, making custom-fit out of reach for most people.

AI Technology

Innovating Inclusivity

We spent 3 years with government backing from the National Science Foundation to make shoes that are finally inclusive. By merging AI, smartphone scanning, and streamlined manufacturing, we’re making personalization accessible for the first time.

Redefining Custom Fit

Our approach breaks free of industry norms to create a shoe design that factors in all aspects of your fit experience. We capture a 360° view of your personal fit requirements including shape, size, personal preferences, and walking patterns. You don’t settle for average—and neither do we.

And it just keeps getting better

Our shoes build progress into each pair. As IAMBIC shoes are worn, the sole reveals a colored layer that reveals data on your alignment, balance, and gait. We use this to improve your next pair, delivering a shoe that evolves with you.

Next Steps

We’re moving towards a better-feeling tomorrow by transforming how shoes are made. But we’re not doing it alone. All around the world, there are brilliant minds as well as an ecosystem of partnerships and collaborators that are building the future of footwear with us.

We can collaborate with researchers, doctors, and clinicians to push scientific progress in various ways. These include:

  • Gathering and analyzing data on individuals’ fit and footwear
  • Creating foot and footwear models
  • Examining how materials, designs, and construction affect health and mobility
  • Developing, refining, and using metrics to measure different aspects
  • Assessing the impact of orthotics, gait, foot health, and footwear on stress and injuries, as well as other conditions
  • Providing both short-term and long-term support for medical, human subject research, and other related projects.
  • Developing an innovation strategy that encompasses any of the above or more.
