“We only have one pair of feet.” That may seem an obvious statement, but inherent in it is the message that we need to take care of those feet if they are to serve us as well as possible throughout our lives.
Therefore, we really should be pampering our feet and making them a priority in our regimen of health and wellbeing. Pampering can take several forms, from moisturising and removing hard skin in preparation for strappy summer sandals, through to what footwear we put on our feet.
There is a perception that comfortable shoes cannot be pretty and fashionable as well. That is a fallacy which the team at Feet First Podiatry want to blow out of the water. For a number of years they have been selling comfortable and fashionable footwear from their Main South Road clinic. They have had such excellent feedback on the range from customers who otherwise may have difficulty buying shoes because of foot problems that they have decided to expand to a stand-alone retail shoe store.
The Shoe Room will open in early November at 355 Riccarton Road. It will be dedicated to providing fashionable and functional footwear with a more extensive range of the shoes that have been so popular at the clinic. Frankie4 and their stunning active flats, Taos and their great range of sandals, and Revere’s orthotic friendly range are some of the top brands that demonstrate just how comfort, function and style can be integrated.
