As we head into the warmer seasons (yay!) it’s time to update the shoe-robe! Let’s be honest, even if we didn’t need any more shoes, we’d buy some anyway!
Whether you’re looking for a pair of shoes for an event, to wear down the beach, or to take travelling, we’ve got you sorted.
DRESS TO IMPRESS
You’ve been invited to an event, and you want to look stylish, but still be super comfortable at the same time, right? Well ladies, look no further than FRANKiE4’s Cate. You’re probably looking at her 8cm heel and thinking, “Surely they wouldn’t be comfortable!” Well guess what, she is! Not only does she look amazing with almost any outfit, but she’s Podiatrist and Physiotherapist designed, and has a built-in triple density functional footbed with heel support, arch support and ‘sweet spot’ forefoot cushioning, so your feet will be thanking you by the end of the day!
Men, we haven’t forgot about you don’t worry! You can’t go past NAOT’s Chief.
Stylish, comfortable and classy, CHIEF is everything you want in a dress shoe! Made from fine Italian leather, you know these bad boys are of the highest quality, and they’re versatile enough to be paired with both corporate and casual wear.
HOT SUMMER’S DAY
From t-shirts and shorts, to flowy dresses, Summer isn’t Summer without sunshine & Birkenstocks.
In recent years, they’ve gone from just a comfort shoe to a worldwide fashion trend. I mean, why wouldn’t they? They’re made with the highest quality materials to ensure an optimum level of comfort and durability, and there are loads of different styles and colours available.
Not sure which style to get? Don’t worry, there’s plenty to choose from. Arizona, Mayari and Gizeh are a few of our favourites! Fancy a pair in patent leather? What about a shiny metallic pair? The choices are endless!
ORTHOTIC SUPPORT, IN STYLE!
Whoever said style is sacrificed for comfort has never tried FRANKiE4! Once you step into a pair of ELLiE’s, you’ll know what we mean! Not only are they super stylish, they’re comfy too – with hidden heel support, arch support and forefoot cushioning, so you’ll feel like you’re wearing slippers. Literally. They also come with a fit-pack, which includes an option of a full-length footbed, half-length footbed, and forefoot cushions, to cater for narrow, regular, wide and extra wide feet.
ECCO’s Soft 7 Men tick all the boxes for having both style and comfort. The ECCO Comfort Fibre System keeps feet feeling fresh all day long, and the soft, durable leather means lasting comfort. Orthotic friendly footwear that supports following the wife around the shopping centre!
CAUGHT THE TRAVEL BUG?
Having the right footwear when you travel really makes a difference! If you’re going somewhere hot and humid, you don’t always want to have to lug around a chunky hiking boot. So why not go for a travel sandal instead?
The KEEN Whisper is waterproof, has washable polyester webbing upper for odour control, quick dry mesh lining, and patented toe protection, making it breathable, and sturdy enough to take you from bush to beach. It has a quick draw elastic cord lacing system which adjusts for a comfortable and secure fit, and a non-marking rubber sole for steady grip on a variety of surfaces and to combat a range of activities, including hiking and water sports.

For men, the KEEN Newport sandal is a winner. It’s versatile and comfy, and has hydrophobic mesh lining that dries quickly, which is perfect if you’re on a boat or kayaking and constantly getting your feet wet. They also have KEEN.PROTECT toe guards, and a non-marking rubber sole for ultimate grip, so it doesn’t matter what you’re doing, you’ll have enough traction to tackle any terrain.
