Happy Feet Plus – Sarasota celebrates GRAND OPENING

Happy Feet Plus - Sarasota Store

Happy Feet Plus – Sarasota celebrates GRAND OPENING
Fri Nov 11th and Sat Nov 12th

Happy Feet Plus moved from South Tamiami Trail after 5 years, to the much livelier downtown location at 1453 Main Street.

This weekend on Friday and Saturday one of the founders, Jane Strong will be there, along with some of their shoe vendors, giving away FREE shoes every hour and FREE gifts with every purchase. The company is also offering sale prices on everything to introduce Sarasota to the Euro-Comfort footwear company. The store also has a foot scanner where customers can see a digital photo showing not only their foot size, but also their arch type and pressure points.

Happy Feet Plus is a locally owned Largo, FL based, shoe company that first opened as a kiosk in Tyrone Square Mall, St. Petersburg in 1985. The company is owned by Jane Strong & Jacob Wurtz, who now have nine retail store locations from Clearwater to Fort Myers, as well as a large online presence at www.happyfeet.com.

The trendy shoe stores offer brands like Birkenstock, Mephisto, Naot, Finn Comfort, Dansko, Ecco, MBT, and of course, their signature brand Kenkoh.

According to Jane Strong, “The Kenkoh Reflexology Massage sandal provides a new approach to pain relief, and has helped countless numbers of our customers with foot, knee and back pain”. Strong went on to say, “This sandal is what inspired us to get in the shoe business more than 26 years ago because of the astounding health benefits we observed ourselves!”

The Sarasota store, which they newly renovated in earth tones has a warm and friendly atmosphere. The store is managed by Kathy Lanier who also ran the location they moved from. The store is open seven days a week. Mon – Sat 10 am – 6 pm Sun 11- 5 pm. On First Friday they stay open until 9 pm. For more store information call 941-924-2536 or check out www.happyfeetplus.com

It’s June in Florida. The hot weather is rolling in. You get an invitation to Outside in Aspen Event & Birkenstock Meeting sponsored by Birkenstock USA. Do you attend? Well heck yes!

 

 

Three Floridians (Jane, Jacob & Kourtney our Birkenstock rep) hiked 2 hours at 12,000 feet. “They said it would be a light hike” commented Jane. Somebody forgot to mention anything about snowshoeing. What fun!

Birkenstock Blue Footbed versus Custom-Made Orthotics

Happy Feet Plus - Birkenstock Blue Footbeds

Birkenstock is a German orthopaedic footwear company and has been manufacturing footwear since 1774.

The Birkenstock arch suppport, or more commonly known as the “Blue Footbed”, was Birkenstock’s first mass produced product. The Blue Footbed is designed in the shape of a healthy foot, contouring to fit all three arches in the rear of the foot. The current version has been tuned to perfection with the use of today’s modern computer imaging technology. The philosophy behind Birkenstock’s approach to orthopaedic’s is to support the foot as if it were healthy, knowing that since the foot is quite flexible, it will return to it’s original shape.

The Blue Footbed is made out of a flexible cork and lined with silk, one of the most environmentally sound investments in foot health. The benefits are evident with the realignment of the bones in the feet and the consequent realigning of the human skeletal system. This results in improved posture, increased blood circulation and reduction of stress on all of the structural joints, ankles, knees, hips & spine.

Custom-Made Orthotics are prescribed to a patient who has either foot pain and or other structural issues causing pain. The process involves taking an imprint of the patient’s foot, usually in a foam box, and then either casting a plaster cast or sending the imprint away to be “matched” to the appropriate orthotic. The majority of today’s custom orthotics are simply stocked on a shelf, and are not actually manufactured to specifications. There may be a greater success rate with those that are manufactured.

The philosophy of the custom-made orthotics seems to be that custom is better, therefore the price can be raised to the limits that the market will bear. Unfortunately, in my opinion, doing the custom orthotics is a mistake. If you are in pain (the reason that you would seek help) chances are that your feet are out of alignment. If they take an impression of your feet when you are ailing, they will supply you with an “orthotic” (and I use the term loosely here) that will only support you to this level of misalignment. In other words, rather than putting total support under your feet, they are providing you with a shim, to stop your foot from collapsing any further. To further add insult to injury, a large percentage of these custom orthotics are made out of a hard plastic and provide no give, so your feet have to suffer even further.

So, which is better for you? You be the judge, but in my opinion the Birkenstock Blue Footbed is by far the best solution.

Are you off your rocker (sole)?

Happy Feet Plus - MBT Rocks

Quality and function versus fad and fashion. What are you looking for?

If Joe Montana says a something is good it’s got to be true, right? Perhaps, but before you lay down any cash for a pair of rocker sole shoes do some homework. Just to let you know, Happy Feet Plus sells MBT, Cogent and Finn Comfort rocker sole footwear.

If you just want the cheapest rocker shoe in a color to match your favorite outfit, you probably do not need to read any further. On the other hand, if you’re looking for performance footwear to help work leg and glute muscles, and strengthen your back, then read on.

MBT is recognized as the originator, innovator, and creator of the rocker sole footwear category. Lots of research and development went into the design of their shoes and sandals. You can read more about the research studies by clicking here.

Any high quality shoe is going to be resoleable rather than disposable. When you have your MBT refurbished, the outsole is replaced. The Masai Sensor, which takes most of the impact on the MBT, is also replaced. So too are the shoelaces. Last, but not least, the upper is spiffed up. Can, or will, the other rocker-sole companies do the same?

You might also want to look into the academic research and professional endorsements for each brand. MBT has dozens of studies proving the benefits. Doctors, physiotherapists and trainers from around the world recommend MBT. Hospitals and clinics worldwide have used MBT’s in therapeutic applications. Endorsements from doctors, physiotherapists and trainers? These folks who have used the products to help people to recover from injuries and surgeries. How about the other guys?

Some of the competitors of MBT are spending tons of money to advertise their shoes because the rocker sole category is currently very hot. Before you buy, be sure you do your research. Look to see who’s invested time and money to develop a high quality product.

If you’re looking for something that can improve your health and fitness or help you to strengthen your back or rehabilitate certain injuries, you owe it to yourself to look at MBT. (Beware! There are counterfeit MBT’s in the market. If the price looks too good to be true…)

Happy Feet Plus has nine stores in the Tampa Bay Florida area. Our foot health specialists are well versed in the benefits of MBT footwear and can help you select the best sandals or shoes to meet your needs. Click here for locations and phone numbers.
