What are the main benefits of wearing Finn Comfort footwear?

Without sounding too bias, we love our Finn Comfort shoes. They are absolutely brilliant when it comes to helping relieve pain caused by all sorts of conditions. Namely osteoarthritis of the feet and ankles, plantar fasciitis, and any other condition that causes pain in the heel & forefoot. So, let's try to answer the question about how they can help you with everyday life. 

A diagram showing the basic structure of the foot. Looking at this you can see why it would an issue to wear flat shoes with minimal support in the mid foot! 

Regardless of what you are doing or where you are, it is pretty important that the feet have sufficient support. There are 26 bones, 30 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments in the feet. All of these have to work in conjunction with each other to provide stability, mobility and support. This is why we're pretty persistent with wearing something that is anatomically shaped, and it's why you will find that term in a lot of descriptions for our products. 

Finn Comfort footwear is made with an extremely firm cork footbed that has an truly anatomical shape, providing the structure and support the feet need. Wearing flimsy shoes with minimal support is what will cause your feet to ache and feel strained, and having an insufficient amount of arch support will damage the arch and can lead to painful conditions like plantar fasciitis.

Ikebukuro is one of our most popular shoes from Finn Comfort as it has the firm anatomical structure as well as a slight rocker sole. The shape of the sole gently guides the foot through the walking motion from heel to forefoot, which minimises peak pressure points by distributing the bodyweight throughout the entire foot.
