Podcast Interview Highlights “It's a long road" by Stelios Petroutsos.

05:00 Do you want to tell us what this is all about, how it helps runners and who it is aimed at?

09:11 What is the difference between these new innovators orthotics with the simple braces you make?

13:06 How does the whole Project work? I mean how does the whole ordering process work?

22:59 You are one step ahead of the technology with everything I hear.

25:57 So someone who is far away from you can order them orthotic insoles;

32:58 From what I know because I myself use insoles in my shoes, the classic insoles are based on the philosophy that they should take the shape of the foot with the plantarogram done and thus support those parts of the sole that need support . What makes your technology different?

42:32 Can Carbons be customized orthotic insoles improve my performance?

46:48 If I have Super shoes, can I put on your own carbon fiber soles?

49:47 Why do you use materials like Carbon and Kevlar?

51:42 Are all orthotics the same or do you have different models?

55:17 These soles for how many kilometers are they even if I change shoe can i transfer the insoles to my new one shoe;

56:32 I read somewhere on your site that the intermediate cover "reads" the needs of the athlete. What exactly does this mean?

59:37 Does everyone need orthotics in their shoes?

01:02:30 If I'm not sure anymore model is it for me how can i decide

01:04:36 Could be wrong shoe be due to some injury? Or also change the drop heal to one shoe to cause any injury?

01:06:10 In closing, I would like to ask you where and how someone can find you and in general what services do you offer?
