Choosing the right footwear is essential if one is to maintain a decent quality of life, far too many of us select footwear on the basis of appearance and price, this could be a mistake. Very cheap footwear is unlikely to have been designed with the end user in mind, in all likelihood, it has been designed to be mass produced from the cheapest possible materials. If unsuitable footwear is worn day after day, for months and even years, it can affect the health of the foot and ultimately leave to long standing issues which may affect a number of things including balance, posture and joint problems, but there is a solution. There a few companies out there, predominantly in the USA, UK and Australia that design and manufacture a wide range of footwear that is not only functional but also look good as well, Australia based Zullaz footwear is one such company.

Gone are the days when orthotic shoes were unattractive, clumpy and definitely not fashionable, they are now available in a range of styles including but not limited to:

  • Sneakers
  • Beach Shoes
  • Sports Shoes
  • Formal Shoes
  • Kids Shoes

The above list is by no means complete but serves as an example of how you can keep your feet healthy whilst still going about your day to day business and leisure activities.

Design Based on Research and Development

All the orthotic footwear you see on sale, both online and at specialist shops, have been designed in conjunction with leading podiatry specialists, this means they have been tried and tested thoroughly to ensure they meet strict criteria. Like your teeth, your feet need to last forever, so it pays to look after them to the best of your ability. If you are concerned about price, you may be pleasantly surprised. They may not be as cheap as the mass-produced imports that have more or less flooded the footwear market, but your feet will eventually thank you for the investment!

If you are unsure about what shoes or insoles are most suitable for your personal needs, you may want to email or call one of the quality providers you come across online. As previously mentioned, these specialists do not merely just sell shoes, they are footwear specialists and will be able to provide you with a plethora of information about their products as well as the benefits and suitability for you.

Before you Buy

If you shop online, you will know that performing due diligence on a product before you buy is an essential prerequisite. Many orthotic footwear specialists will have a testimonials page where you can see feedback from previous customers before you buy yourself. If the company has been established for a period of time, you should also be able to find reviews from independent online review websites.  With this information, you should be able to make an informed choice as to whether the company in question meets yours needs, service expectations and budget.
