Aaron invented the mino when he suffered a stress fracture from running on worn out shoes. He couldn't keep track of his shoe mileage nor did he want to wait for his next injury so he did some research and mino was born. It fits seamlessly under the sock liner so you won't feel it and automatically tracks every compression so you don't have to. Now runners won't worry about their shoe wear and can run worry-free. Mino is assembled in Massachusetts; almost every part of it is made in America, from the circuit boards to the foam.
