• Our Top 5 Men's Orthotic Friendly Shoes


    At Grundy’s Shoes, we have a selection of orthotic friendly footwear for men, which are not only comfortable and supportive - but stylish too.

    Here are 5 orthotic friendly styles we have on offer in our men’s shoe range.

    ECCO SOFT 7 430004

    The ECCO SOFT 7 430004 is a bestseller because it’s orthotic friendly, trendy, and can be worn as both a casual everyday shoe, or even paired with a dressier outfit. It has a premium leather upper with a full anatomical last shape and a soft and breathable, leather and textile lining.

    It features a removable leather insole which has the ECCO Comfort Fibre System®, keeping the feet staying fresh and dry which helps prevent rubbing, so you can wear them all day long. Of course, these can be taken out to accommodate custom orthotics too!


    ECCO - 430004 SOFT 7 MEN - NAVY - $259


    A classic and reliable shoe, the ROCKPORT EDGE HILL comes in black and brown, and has a full-grain leather upper for breathability, and a padded tongue and collar to help protect from excessive rubbing and assisting in the prevention of blisters.

    It also has a removable, sponge EVA insole with conforms to the shape of the foot. There is also the option of adding your own orthotic if needed. Rockport’s Walking Platform Construction helps provide a wide base of support for the heel and forefoot flexibility, so these are perfect for all day wear and travelling. A rubber sole also means they have excellent grip on a variety of surfaces.



    The KEEN AUSTIN sneaker is waterproof, and can be worn travelling, or for everyday wear. The cushioned metatomical footbed and last are anatomically designed to provide better support. This is because they are built around the overall shape of the foot and cradle the natural contours of the foot.

    With a removable insole and a roomy KEEN toe box, these are great for those who wish to put in their own orthotics, and need that extra bit of room!




    JOSEF SEIBEL ANVERS 08 is a popular shoe here at Grundy’s, for the man who wants to be comfortable, and cool. Not only is it orthotic friendly, but it also has an extra wide fit which is a bonus for those who need the additional width in a shoe.

    They also have a removable insole, which provides the option to put in your own orthotics if needed. But - if you want to keep in the padded insole that’s already in there, that’s totally ok too! A lightweight PU sole also makes them easy to pack away for travel – win!



    Propet are a leader in comfortable shoes, and the PROPET TRAVELFIT is no exception. It has an easy slip on closure with a back pull-tab bungee cord system and adjustable toggle laces.

    It has a generous 3E width, are super light, washable, and the sole exceeds Australian slip resistant assessment standards. It also has a padded collar and a firm heel counter, which reduces foot fatigue.

    It also features a Rejuve Motion Technology™ removable footbed (a U-shaped design built into an advanced sole system which is contoured to provide a stabilising force that supports the natural gait).



    We hope some of these suggestions help in choosing an orthotic friendly shoe that’s right for you.

  • New Season, New Shoes!


    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.


    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.




    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!

    Here, we explain how to fit your new Birkenstocks.



    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.

    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.
