Abstract (en)

A device for increasing the movement stability of shoes for tennis or similar sports, comprising a plate-like support (18) which is substantially Y-shaped and has a first curved portion (19), which is adapted to follow the profile of the heel region, and a second portion (23), which is adapted to follow the outer profile of the foot. The second portion (23) widens transversely with a third portion (25) so as to affect the inner metatarsal region (26) of the foot. The support (18) is coupled in a downward region to a mid-sole (31) made of shock-absorbing material in order to distribute thereon the load transmitted by the moving foot. <IMAGE>
