Preventing and Treating Foot Pain

Best Shoe Insoles: Superfeet Green Performance Insoles

Superfeet Green Performance InsolesYour Problem: Shoes are made to house and shield our feet from the ground. However, manufacturers build shoes to fit a universal size and shape, so they often compromise those with feet that don't fit the bill, including people with flat feet and wide arches. 

Our Solution: Solving this problem is simple. Your shoes require a pair of insoles to help position your feet and ease the pressure. The SuperFeet Green Performance Insoles are a great option.

Key Benefits:

  • Align the body and relieves strain and foot arch pain
  • Provide shock absorption with a slim, contoured shape
  • Fit inside almost any shoe shape thanks to flexible foam material
  • Anti-microbial treatment keeps insoles clean and hygienic 

How to Keep Your Feet Soft

Best Foot Cream for Cracked Heels: O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet Foot Cream (85g Tube)

Our Solution: Your feet need some TLC, and what better way to soothe them than with a restorative foot cream. We recommend O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet Foot Cream, our best cream for hydrating severely cracked heels.

Our Shoe Care Guide: Three Steps You Should Take

Shoe BrushesLeather PolishLeather Waterproofing

Your Problem: Prolonging the life of your shoes is important. Firstly, because it will stop you spending ridiculous sums on footwear each year. Secondly, by properly caring for your shoes, you are being kind to your feet. Your feet spend ages breaking in a pair of shoes, and by forcing them to break in another pair so soon after, you're inviting renewed pain and tension.

Our Solution: Brush. Polish. Spray. These are three simple steps to follow every time your shoes start to wear and tear. Brush away lint and dirt, polish your shoe to a glorious sheen, and finish with a waterproofing spray. Where can you find these items? Just click the images above for our top picks. 


Keep Your Shoes Dry

Best Boot Dryer: MaxxDry Heavy Duty Boot, Shoe and Glove Dryer 

MaxxDry Heavy Duty Boot, Shoe and Glove Dryer Your Problem: It's a crime how many pairs of shoes are ruined by mould and bacteria due to exposure to dampness. Unfortunately standard radiators won't get the worst of the wet out, and may leave your shoes to fester and smell.

Our Solution: Whether you're a hiker or skier, the MaxxDry Heavy Duty Boot Dryer is our number one recommendation for those with soaked boots, with industrial scale drying at the press of a button.

Key Benefits:

  • Sophisticated drying system for work boots
  • Distributes warmth to all areas of boot

  • Quick and easy to use with an affordable price
