If you are a regular patron of Happy Feet Plus you’re aware that Taos Footwear is inspired by the natural warmth and vibrancy of the New Mexico landscape. Taos footwear designs are familiar but with their own unique touches.
It’s now time to add to our extensive line of Taos sandals, shoes and clogs. We just received our first delivery of new Taos shoes for the Fall 2012 season. Other shoes and sandals are on the horizon and will be making an appearance on our web site and in our 9 retail stores throughout the next several weeks.
If you’d like to see the new styles here’s the list of the seven new Fall 2012 Taos shoes.
If you live in the Tampa Bay, Florida area now would be a great time to visit one of the nine Happy Feet Plus retail locations. Not only are we continuing the $10 off sale on the Kenkoh Massage Sandals, but we’re taking $20 off three popular Birkenstock sandals.
The Birkenstock Florida sandals for women in Khaki Birkibuc and Blue Birko-Flor are now only $59.99. Also the Birkenstock Arizona Mink Suede sandal in men’s and women’s sizes is now $99.99. All three feature the famous Birkenstock cork and latex classic footbed.
Both the Kenkoh sandals and all of the Birkenstock family of footwear are ideal for preventing or addressing a variety of foot issues. One of the most frequent foot ailments is Plantar Fasciitis. Recovering from Plantar Fasciitis is long process which begins with insuring that the medial arch is properly supported at all times.
Plantar Fasciitis pain is often most acute the first thing in the morning. Slipping on a pair of Kenkoh sandals as you get out of bed will support the arches of the feet. At the same time the massaging nubs will stimulate nerve endings and accelerate the flow of blood throughout the feet. Both will reduce the discomfort and allow the healing process to continue.
You cannot ignore your feet the rest of the day either. It’s equally important to provide good support all day long. Wearing footwear with good arch support like that found in Birkenstock footwear and other brands found at Happy Feet Plus will help you recover from the pain of Plantar Fasciitis.
Providing “Footwear for Healthier Feet” is a core value here at Happy Feet Plus. Ever since our founding in 1985 we have focused on the sale of footwear that are good for your feet, as well as for your whole body.
Over the years we have sought out brands that strengthen, support and even revitalize your feet. A couple of brands have been mainstays within our stores over the years. Birkenstock and Finn Comfort are both German-made products that feature cork-latex footbeds for exceptional support and comfort.
Perhaps the epitome of our belief in healthy footwear is the Kenkoh Massage Sandal. This sandal, developed in Japan, was the product that launched Happy Feet Plus. The insole of the Kenkoh is made up of hundreds of natural rubber nodules that support and stimulate the soles of your feet. The nodules stimulate the nerve endings and have been clinically proven to increase blood flow and create a calming, restful feeling.
The nodules also are known to stimulate the various reflexive zones on the sole of the feet. The nerve endings of these reflexive zones connect to and affect various glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexive zones increases the body’s energy flow and rebalances the body.
Wearing the Kenkoh sandals allows you to massage your feet when you walk, stand or sit with even light pressure on the sole.
Who better to explain the benefits of the Kenkoh sandal than the company founder, Jacob Wurtz.
