Due to the unnatural shape of conventional toe caps, the feet in the area of the metatarsophalangeal joints are bent unnaturally with every step. Many outsoles are also as stiff as a plaster cast. This restricts the movement of the metatarsophalangeal joints.
The human foot is a masterpiece,
…that we want to keep healthy with our safety shoes. The times when feet in safety shoes were forced to unnatural movements and lack of movement are over. Thanks to the BAAK® go&relax system, your foot can move naturally and biomechanically correctly. This is not only super-comfortable, but also healthy.
Our innovative system
…was primarily developed for people who wear safety shoes for many hours a day. A natural and functional foot load is particularly important for this customer group – a fatigue-free walk throughout the working day.
What BAAK® go&relax can do*
- Reduce the risk of knee osteoarthritis
- Improve the posture of the trunk
- Influence the back muscles and possible contribute to the reduction of discomfort
In common safety shoes
straight toe protection caps make the feet bend unnaturally with every step. In addition, stiff outsoles restrict the movement of the basic toe joints. The two small outer toes are not involved in the rolling movement. This may result in an unequal load distribution over the foot muscles, sinews and ligaments – and in severe consequences for the foot dynamics and body statics.
Three elaborate features
Thanks to those three functional elements, the BAAK® go&relax system for safety shoes involves all five toes in the rolling movement. So while walking, the load is distributed optimally over all muscles and joints involved. BAAK® go&relax consists of a unique combination of components for natural bending – thus ensuring healthy feet that relieve pressure on the entire musculoskeletal system.
1. Asymmetrical toe cap
The BAAK® flex cap ensures that the basic toe joints are bent in a functional way – and thus also ensures a more »relaxed« way of walking.
2. Biomechanically optimized flex zone
In addition, the BAAK® flex zone in the outsole is optimally suited to the foot and allows all basic toe joints to bend in a natural and functional way.
3. Biomechanical H-coupling element
The BAAK® H-coupling element integrated into the outsole connects the forefoot and hindfoot elastically, supports the bending of the toes in a way suited to their position and ensures stability together with control.
