Natural Comfort and Fit: Functional shoes are crafted to mimic the contours of your feet, providing a custom fit that supports natural movement. Say goodbye to pinching, squeezing, and discomfort – it's time to step into a world of ultimate comfort.
In our experience, when someone wears a pair of functional shoe for the first time, after just 60 days, they already find there conventional shoes too uncomfortable!
Enhanced Foot Health: Unlike traditional shoes that can constrain your feet, functional footwear encourages proper alignment, reduces pressure points, and supports overall foot health. Embrace shoes that work with your feet, not against them.
Effortless Movement: Functional shoes boast flexibility that allows your feet to move freely. This promotes better muscle engagement, joint mobility, and a more fluid stride. Experience a new level of ease in every step.
With zero drop design, functional shoes promote a more natural posture, reducing strain on your body's joints and muscles.
Assess Your Feet
Significance of Foot Width: Foot width is crucial in functional footwear as it ensures a proper fit, allowing your feet to move naturally without constraints. Proper width enhances comfort, supports optimal biomechanics, and reduces the risk of discomfort or foot-related issues.
Measuring Foot Width: To measure foot width accurately, use a Brannock device or a ruler. Measure the widest part of your foot (usually at the ball) and refer to the shoe brand's width chart to find the appropriate width designation.
Wider Foot Width Recommendations: Seek out functional footwear brands like the ones on this page. Models labeled as "Wide" or "Extended Width" cater to those with broader feet but in most cases are still not wide enough.
Wider feet? Go for the "broad" section within this page.
Accommodating Wider Feet: Functional shoes with a roomier toe box and stretchable upper materials are ideal for wider foot widths.
The "Shoe Bed Test" is an ideal go-to test to insure the shoes fit correctly.
Yes, in many cases barefoot shoe brands are better than conventional shoes but too many are still not good enough to promote proper, uncompromised foot function.
Sadly no, sizing up in conventional shoes offer as little as 0.1-0.2cm per each full size. In our experience, you would need to increase by 5 full sizes for the shoes to fit correctly.
