ALINE's patented technologies were developed over the past twenty years with the help of thousands of people, from world class athletes to weekend sports enthusiasts. The ALINE BFAST insole was brought to life through an intense, yearlong R&D effort that demanded every bit of our team's skill, experience, and patience! We are proud to say we've created a technology that can help millions reach their potential in sports and in life.
