Our patient and friend Álvaro de Arriba was one step away from reaching the final, remaining in third position in the semi-final. We are sure that this man from Salamanca, whom we have seen grow up, has a long way to go.

Thank you very much for letting us follow your steps all these years!

Jesus Angel Garcia Bragado, our friend and patient for more than 10 years, reached the eighth position in Doha in 50 km walk at 49 years old. As we have mentioned, the high temperatures were going to mark this World Cup and, for this reason, at Podoactiva, we designed our first custom ultra-breathable insoles.

“Several months ago we started working with our R+D+i department with the aim of trying to find a solution to a problem that he knew would be found in this World Cup: competing is a extreme heat situation. The goal was to make a Podoactiva custom templates that, without losing biomechanical function, could perspire and wick away sweat effectively. In this way, we create our first custom ultra-breathable insole with which Chuso has been very satisfied”, explains Víctor Alfaro.

Alfaro affirms that “these templates are just a small example of how Chuso has been attentive to everything and, in top competition, every detail adds up. Jesus Garcia Bragado is an example of effort, dedication and passion for things well done and reminds us of the importance of continuing to pursue dreams throughout life. You can check all about the new templates in our post “The new ultra-breathable personalized insoles for the 40 degrees of the World Athletics Championships in Doha (Qatar)".
