Telic crafts its footwear from Novalon®; a proprietary body-heat activated, water proof, feather-light material. Its pillow-soft supportive foot-bed is designed with a slight heel rocker to off-load pressure and accentuate foot-strike management. The elasticity of Novalon® provides for a secure, snug fit for a large variety of foot shapes.
Over only a short period of time the brand has received ample critical acclaim from the medical arena. Countless Telic advocates have testified that the footwear has been extremely helpful in reducing pain for plantar fasciitis and many other common foot ailments. Dr. Gary Prant, D.P.M. in Austin, TX said his favorite flip-flop brands are Naot, Birkenstock, Teva, and Telic. Dr. Robert J. Joseph, D.P.M. Foot & Ankle Surgeon in Beverly Hills, CA states: “Finally a day in sandals without pain! Telic has designed a beautifully contoured foot-bed and paired it with an ultra-soft shock absorbing material that can immediately relieve common foot pain and stress issues from everyday activities.” According to Dr. Jeffery A. Klemes, D.P.M. Director of the Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Program at Ceder-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles: “I have been fortunate to sample Telic sandals. I find them to be most comfortable. They are well contoured to the feet, and have excellent cushioning. I will happily recommend them to my patients.”
Furthermore, Telic has performed extraordinarily well in laboratory testing. Novalon® is latex, allergen and toxin free; certified to meet Orchard Brands requirement for US California Proposition 65. Applied Technical Services Inc. (Marietta, GA) has tested Telic to rebound better, maintain its shock-absorbing properties longer, and to last twice as long as its competition. Precision Testing Laboratories (Nashville, TN) has declared Telic to be “Slip Resistant” on dry and wet surfaces.Athletes around the world are finding Telic to be an excellent recovery solution for after sports: "I recently travelled to Nepal for some mountaineering and took along a pair of Telic shoes for use in the lodges during the trek into the mountain and for using around base camp. The shoes were lightweight and compact but above all, they were extremely comfortable and offered a much welcome relief to my feet after a long days trekking and mountaineering. They will be a standard piece of kit on future expeditions,” exclaims Simon Yates, one of England’s best known mountaineers.
