Expected Results : If the research team is supported by the government in terms of technique and tools used to mold the silicone gel that can make the device stronger. The thickness of the device is thinner and easier to clean. With the production of this material need to do with vacuum suction set. This development will be able to push the wearer to the inside of the everyday wearer with the sneakers and not to be noticed by the wearer, causing the wearer to become unsure of the look. While wearing the equipment.
