The Del Mar Sandal is both stylish and functional with patented footbed technology designed to enhance foot function. The contoured footbed helps control over-pronation, thus maintaining stability and alignment of the feet, which in turn reduces lower extremity pain and improves posture.
What makes these sandals unique: the 1st M.P.J. drop zone of the sandal is made with a softer density material that depresses under load from the 1st M.P.J. The softer density drop zone allows the 1st metatarsal head and hallux to strike the ground with decreased force and pressure, promoting a painfree and efficient gait (decreases excessive ground reactive force under the first ray and allows the first ray to plantarflex). The softer drop zone is undetectable from the dorsal surface eliminating any look or feel of a modified footbed.
1st Ray Plantarflexor Technology is biomechanically proven to facilitate 1st ray function, which in turn reduces plantar hallux pressure, promoting a more efficient gait. Vasyli Medical Sandals help relieve the symptoms and pain produced by:
