About

 Parásole is the world's first 3D recovery footwear that combines the comfort & freedom of an athletic compression sock with key properties of a supportive insole, and traction and protection of an outsole to help relieve tired achy feet. 

 Foot pain can have a profound impact on quality of life. A recent study by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) found over 77% of Americans suffer from foot pain.     

 Our Patented technology is engineered with a generative designed polymer sole providing dynamic arch support, improved pressure distribution, and micro-cushioning.

 Parásoles help adapt the natural shape of your foot to hard flat ground surfaces. They feature dynamic arch support, dual layer compression, and micro cushioning. The added utility of the polymer sole improves traction on slippery floors and protects sock fibers from abrasion when wearing them while relaxing inside or playing outside.  

 We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint to slow climate change and help save the planet. Parásoles reduce cut-and-sew shoe waste by over 90%! Made from just 3 materials, compared to a single pair of shoes that may contain up to 30 different materials.

  If everyone makes a commitment to considering footwear brands who have an interest in a more sustainable future, we can demand change. We have the technology and the materials to make a difference. Our team had a goal that our solution would strive to be carbon neutral, and not add to the current problem. 

While we haven't quite reached carbon neutral, we have significantly reduced the amount of energy, resources, and labor required to make our minimalist footwear.   

We received hundreds of awesome emails and glowing reviews from people just like you. See what people are saying below, and get a feel for how Parásole can work for you too.  

If you are uncertain of your size or would like to double check, just measure your foot and compare to the guide below.

STEP 1: Place a sheet of paper against the wall. Place one foot on the piece of paper with your heel against the wall. Keeping your foot in place, and trace around your foot. 

STEP 2: Measure your marking from the longest point of your toes to the middle of the heel in cm with a ruler. 

STEP 3: Take the measurements and compare with the JP/CM section of our chart below to see your size in US, UK,or EUR sizing.

We are a team of industrial designers, biomedical experts, and footwear design professionals. Fly Kytin (Chi-tin) was founded on the idea of creating wearable products and experiences that perform anatomically and environmentally better.

We believe there is a need for a new kind of footwear with measurable benefits like anatomical support and responsibly designed to help protect our environment.

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter project. Although we are industry experts, running a crowdfunding campaign, gathering thousands of pledges, and delivering even more internationally is no small task. We learned a lot the first go around, and we're applying what we learned to make things more efficient this time.

We have spent the last year gathering your feedback and suggestions after being the first to try our new recovery socks. We realize that even though we shipped a great product that many are excited about, there are a few things we can do better. We took our learnings to heart to introduce 2 new versions, with refinements, new colors, and 2 different heights!

Supply Chain: We are working with our manufacturer on quality control, increased production capacity, and implementing sustainable practices and materials at every opportunity.

We understand that things happen from time to time beyond our control. We promise to communicate with transparency and work to resolve any issues together.
