http://www.podiatrytoday.com/article/2961

There are other variations of rocker soles that have been written about and used as well. One is the double rocker sole, which is also known as the midfoot rocker sole. In this variation, one would offload the region directly inferior to the midfoot by removing some of the crepe. During gait, the pressure is transferred from the heel to the ball of the foot — alleviating pressure on the midfoot — during midstance.
