Happy Feet Plus provides health and comfort footwear that Strengthens, Supports and Revitalizes. Footwear that supports provides a stable, orthopedically-correct footbed.
At the heart of the footwear which Happy Feet Plus features for their supportive qualities is a resilient cork and latex footbed. Manufacturers such as Birkenstock, Finn Comfort, Birki’s, ALPRO, Footprints, Papillio, and Tatami have designed their cork footbeds in accordance with orthopedic and anatomical principles.
Designing orthopedically-correct support footwear requires an understanding of the human musculoskeletal structure (the body's bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue) beginning with the feet. The supportive footbed, in the shape of a healthy foot, is contoured with raised arches to ensure proper weight distribution. The deep heel cup keeps the foot’s natural padding under the heel to provide stability. As a result, correct musculoskeletal alignment is attained and the body’s weight is properly distributed.
The cork and latex footbed also has the ability to adapt to the individual user’s foot structure. The natural body warmth allows the pliability of the cork and latex footbed to yield to the individual’s foot characteristics creating a custom fit. Over time the footwear becomes more and more comfortable.
The anatomically correct shape of the footbed encourages a natural heel-to-toe rolling motion of the foot. The footbed design also features a wide toebox. The wide toebox allows room for the toes to move naturally. Individuals with bunions or hammer toes will find relief, and often reversal of their foot condition, by wearing footwear from Birkenstock, Finn Comfort, Birki’s, ALPRO, Footprints, Papillio, and Tatami.
