Why I Like Clogs

Yes, I’m a guy and I like clogs. Prior to working at Happy Feet Plus I would not even thought about wearing a pair of clogs. No, I came from the corporate world complete with wingtips and button-down collars. Little did I realize how much my feet were crying out for help. Being jammed into “fashionable” shoes were making all the little piggies packed much too tightly together. They wanted, and needed, room to stretch out and breathe. My first…

Cool Weather Squeeze

  Do your feet seem to hurt more in the cold weather months? It could be that with the transition from summer sandals to winter shoes and boots that you are squeezing your feet into constrictive, and painful, footwear.

Are You Pregnant and Do Your Feet Hurt 2?

As you might guess, my perspective on footwear is biased. Happy Feet Plus sells footwear that emphasizes health and comfort. I look for information that reinforces our opinions on “proper footwear” when I write these blogs. In all of the research I did, as in-exhaustive as it might be, I never saw that anyone recommend that pregnant women should wear pointy-toed high heeled shoes or flip-flops. Instead, the consistent theme is flat or low-heeled shoes with a wide toe box…

  OK, so I’m a guy and can’t fully appreciate the effects that pregnancy bestows on a woman’s body. Although if I knew then, when she was pregnant oh so many years ago, what I know now my wife would have been at least a bit more comfortable. You may hate for saying this, but do your toes look like sausages stuffed into your shoes? It’s not your fault, you’ve just got the wrong shoes. Normally a woman will wear…

From the Birkenstock family of products, there are three styles from Footprints that fit the bill – the Darlington, the Davenport and the Santarem.
