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.
You may have heard about orthotics or custom insoles.
Do you know what they do and why it’s a good idea to use them?
If not read on.
There are many different types of effective foot orthotics. Some are custom made while others are over-the-counter and designed for specific foot types and symptoms. Depending on your particular needs, your doctor or health professional may recommend orthotics for your feet.
The goals of orthotics are to make your feet feel comfortable in your shoes at all times, while preventing foot pain and providing proper body alignment. With the right orthotic style, you’ll benefit from shock absorption, arch support, cushioning and pressure redistribution.
In combination with proper footwear, orthotics can help you achieve maximum foot comfort and prevent unnecessary injuries to help you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Well, we’re back.
It’s been quite a hiatus, but we’re ready to get back to blogging about foot and shoe stuff.
To ease back into the saddle we thought we’d share a video we came across while channel surfing the other day. Take a look. And smile.
The Birkenstock Attraction: History.
The Birkenstock family has been making shoes for more than two hundred years, however Birkenstock shoes, sandals, and clogs did not gain popularity outside of Germany until 1966, when a woman named Margot Fraser discovered them during vacation in Germany and started to import them into the United States, where they developed a lot of popularity among people who recognize quality in footwear.
These are Finn Comfort Clogs.
