Why we made this shoe

We have designed the first truly adaptive shoe in the world for people with walking difficulties. Often they can't lift their foot enough to clear the ground when taking a step forward. In order to not trip they shuffle or develop a different coping mechanism.

Our Cadense Original Adaptive Shoe features groundbreaking, patented variable friction technology. It allows its wearer to slide over obstacles with ease and develop a more normal gait. 

But we have not stopped there. We made sure that the first truly adaptive shoe also feels like walking on clouds and looks stunning.

Product Details

AFO compatibility: Our shoes might work with your AFO depending on its size. If you currently are able to fit your AFO into a shoe in a regular or Wide (2E) width shoe, it should work with Cadense shoes.

Toe box: Our toe box is very generously spaced.

Weight of the shoe: About 13 oz per shoe – Men's size 9 was used as reference.

Heel to Toe Drop: Standard 3/8".

Shoe sole height: Our shoe sole measures about 1.5 inches throughout. The height is needed to allow the variable friction technology to work properly and it also makes for a very comfortable walking experience.

Our Best Hope Yet

My 82 yr old father experienced a massive stroke in Dec ‘21. Left side weakness is extreme. He may never walk alone, as his left hand/arm cannot help to control a walker. However, he is currently using his Cadense left shoe to walk along a rail in Physical Therapy. So much better than the plastic bag we previously used! If he never does walk alone, at least he can get stronger in assisting my mother in getting him in and out of car. He does have a Cionic sleeve, but says the Cadense shoe is his best help thus far.

falling no more...I hope

Hello,

I have MS and it caused major foot drop with one of my ankles/foot. I have tried some basic AFO devices but they never seemed to work. They were good the first week, but after the velcro, cables, shoe connectors, and leg device never seemed to work after that first week.

My foot drop will cause me to trip on a piece of paper.

The Cadense shoe is not perfect (wish the sliders were only on one foot), it is louder on hardwood floors than I would like, and makes me uneasy walking down stairs, but after using for 3 weeks I am sold.

I was really hesitant to try after my foot has made compensations over my twenty years with multiple sclerosis but I wear everyday.

Eventually would love a dress type shoe as it looked "silly" with suit, but it made the event so much easier.

THANK YOU for designing a great product.

Happy Man

After living 65 years 50 of which effects of MS slowly but steadily affecting my mobility, these shoes are a breath of fresh air. I received them one month ago tomorrow. They have allowed me to walk without my toe lift afo which I’ve had for many years. My selection of footwear was very limited because of the brace . I couldn’t wear slippers and resorted to wearing no-slip socks a lot of the time. Sneakers were a problem as they caused my foot to grab the floor and stumble.
I have not gone a day without wearing my new Cadense shoes. They have allowed me to walk in a whole different way. More of a” normal gate “ or at least closer to one . My hope this helps me strengthen the muscles in my leg and hips without deteriorating my joints.
I have a second pair on order and plan to rotate them for longer shoe life .
The click of the shoe when hitting the floor helps make be conscious of lifting my leg and at least trying to properly place my foot when it lands. I can’t thank you enough for your commitment to manufacturing these shoes to assist a whole group of people who struggle to walk without falling.
Sincerely
Gary Bean

Pleasant surprise

Very comfy fit quite well! The soles are slippery and take getting used to, as the product information states. Suggest not driving with them on until a little worn in.
I have a profound L5 neuropathy with significant left foot drop. The “ Cadense” my feet make is quite remarkable. Highly recommend the product.

A gamechanger

I've had MS for 15 years. I have drop foot, Weakness, and balance issues. I trip and fall about once every two weeks. 3 months ago I decided to try these shoes I saw online. It was the best purchase I have ever made! I have not fallen since I got them. I wear them every day, everywhere! My only complaint is why didn't someone come out with these sooner! I great concept and a great, ocmfortable, stylish shoe. I'm just ordering a second pair now!!

Frequently asked questions

Who are Cadense adaptive shoes for?

We have created the Cadense Original adaptive sneaker for people experiencing walking difficulties. Our shoe may help seniors with walking difficulties, individuals experiencing foot drop, stroke patients, people with multiple-sclerosis, or cerebral palsy.

How do Cadense Adaptive shoes work?

Cadense adaptive shoes use our proprietary, patent-pending variable friction technology.

Low-friction elements on the shoe sole allow you the slide over everyday obstacles like uneven pavements. High friction rubber parts get activated when weight is placed on the shoe and allow you to stop and toe-off as needed.

See more details on how the Cadense Adaptive shoes work.
