Laboratory tests certify that footwear with Elica, compared to traditional footwear,  guarantees a more even distribution of foot pressure.
The tests highlight: 
- a more even distribution of pressure during the entire stance phase
- a more central load at mid stance
- better arch support during midstance and lower pressure during the toe-off phase.
The insole board is inclined outwards to support heel strike, while in the external heel area the shock absorber is thicker in order to better absorb the impact. The asymmetric tread design aligned with the axis of stance and the elongated lugs increase the contact surface area.
The insole board is inclined to support the natural toe-off. The internal front part of the midsole consists of shock-absorbing material to distribute the push-off force. The lugs on the tread located on the inner part of the shoe are protruding outwards to increase the contact surface area
The Internal Midsole System is coupled with an Exoskeleton construction of medium density
polyurethane for stability and protection, and a lightweight polyurethane inner part, which provides
cushioning, shock absorption and high compressive strength.
The Exoskeleton technology is applied to the sole: the midsole is composed of an outer skeleton in
light polyurethane, which goes up at the rear surrounding and protecting the heel so as to provide
support and stability while walking. The asymmetrical structure, with a wider inner part and a rise in
polyurethane in the medial area offers support and provides pronation control.
All AKU footwear treated with Exoskeleton has its own unique, immediately recognisable style.
