Custom made fully bespoke | Custom made semi-bespoke | Polypropylene


The Slimgen design is a popular choice when looking for a polypropylene device with reduced bulk; the design has the traditional heel counter removed whilst maintaining intrinsic rear foot control. Slimgen devices provide an ideal solution when space within the shoe is at a premium.

Available as custom made fully bespoke or custom made semi-bespoke devices.

Shell adaptations are possible, however they are limited due to the design parameters and further details are available on request.

Polypropylene information

We can offer the Polypropylene devices with the following three flexibility options; flexible, normal and rigid. The devices are manufactured from natural/white Polypropylene as standard, but can be offered in black by special request and would be dealt with on a case by case basis. Intrinsic rear foot and forefoot control is available as needed in both of the above options.

The service is first-class. There is an outstanding team of very experienced technicians, with excellent management and administrative support. The products are good, the turn-round fast and the prices are competitive. Most importantly, they are always on hand to give advice and alter devices at short notice.
