Why ‘clumpy and frumpy’ has been replaced by ‘classy and sassy’
Several years ago, one of the criticisms we faced at Foot Solutions was that the footwear was a bit ‘clumpy and frumpy’. Customers have always loved our custom arch supports, (which have literally transformed people’s lives by reducing pain and increasing mobility), but sometimes felt that the orthotic-friendly shoes that could accommodate them were a little lacking in the style department.
We relayed these points back to our suppliers, and to their credit, they have worked wonders in terms of making their footwear more on trend. We also researched manufacturers from around the world and have hand-picked new suppliers who can provide high quality, fashionable and orthotic-friendly shoes, boots and sandals.
Over the last few years, our customers have been increasingly pleasantly surprised by the styles available, meaning that we have been able to offer comfortable, fashionable footwear – for both women and men – for every occasion, be it formal, casual or active outdoor.
This year though, our Autumn/Winter collections have set new standards in combining comfort and style.
Ziera cleverly fuse elegance with fashion. Their footwear is based around a specially designed foot-bed that cradles the foot. They then add stylish features like adjustable straps, flexible fabrics and lacing systems that personalise the fit.
The Solidus collection varies from casual sporty looks, offering everyday comfort, to the more therapeutic styles, especially suited to those with sensitive feet. All styles feature shock absorbing soles, with removable foot-beds, which can be replaced with a customised insert /orthotic, providing optimum comfort for wearers.
Mephisto women’s shoes are made from natural products such as leather and cork and are crafted one shoe at a time. Designed to combine quality, fashion and comfort, styles range from formal dress shoes to casual shoes and boots.
Xsensible specialise in ergonomic comfort footwear. All shoes are made from beautiful materials integrated with Xsensible’s patented stretch leather technology.
Finn Comfort shoes are renowned for their luxurious materials, superior fit and foot-beds that encourage a natural heel-to-toe rolling motion.
Solidus shoes are manufactured by hand in Europe using traditional techniques to achieve the highest standards in terms of fit and quality. As shoe-width specialists, they produce stylish shoes in 8 different widths to ensure an enjoyable walking experience with no pressure points. All of their footwear is orthotic-friendly.
Renowned for good looks and technical innovations, Mephisto’s classy casual range of shoes and boots are the most popular quality footwear brand in many countries throughout the world.
If you want comfort, quality and style, you’ll love our Finn Comfort selections. The result of a unique blend of old world craftsmanship, state-of-the-art technology and medical expertise, Finn Comfort merge classic good looks with unequalled support.
Xsensible shoes are ideal for people with sensitive feet. They are available in various width sizes and because they have a removable comfort insole can accommodate custom arch supports. The Stretchwalker options have a unique balance point in the middle of the sole which ensures optimal balance and a natural, healthy body posture.
