[] The human foot is a masterpiece that provides stability and poise, whilst enabling movement and balancing the entire body weight. Yet according to latest research findings, more than 75% of the world’s population suffers from some form of foot misalignment, which left unattended, can lead to chronic pain in muscles and joints in the back, hips and knees, hindering overall performance.

[]Some feet have supinated (high) arches while some have pronated (low) arches (also known as flat feet) , both being conditions that cause misalignment and discomfort. Whilst mass produced footwear may seem to ‘fit’ well, what actually happens is that the feet tries to adjust themselves to the shoes, compromising comfort, proper alignment and correct weight distribution.
