Our 3D printing center and several production stations allow us to create customized samples for customers based on their shoes’ midsole profile. With a daily production capacity of 800 sample pairs, the INSITE IDC can provide customized insole samples in about 14 business days – half the industry average.  

The facilities at the INSITE Research & Development Center features a product display area where customers can browse through our molds, foams, and top fabric selections, while the meeting area provides a comfortable space for presentations and discussions.
