Choosing the Correct Footwear for Bunions

How Can Proper Footwear Help My Bunions? Many people still believe that bunions are only for senior citizens; however, nothing could be further from the truth. While women are more susceptible to bunions than men are, they can happen to anyone. Typically, ill-fitting shoes, particularly high-heeled, pointed toe shoes, cause them. Such footwear may be fashionable, but they are anathema to your feet. In shoes that are too constrictive, the foot is forced into the unnatural position of bending inward,…

Read The Label

  We occasionally get calls from customers who don’t understand the Birkenstock box and footbed labeling. Here’s a short tutorial that should clear up most of your questions.

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…

Are You Pregant and Do Your Feet Hurt?

  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…

Guys Like Birkenstocks Too

I just read a comment from one of the blog readers and was surprised. The author is a male who has an interest in distributing foot health information, but he was unaware that Birkenstock made footwear for guys. What a wonderful world this guy has been missing! If there’s one person who doesn’t know that there are Birkenstocks for men, there are probably thousands (tens, or hundreds of thousands, or more?) of guys wondering around with sore feet. Well guys,…

The State of Birkenstock ?>

The State of Birkenstock

What’s going on with Birkenstock? Some of you long-time Birkenstock wearers may be noticing that the sub-brands (Alpro, Birki’s, Footprints, Papillio, and Tatami) are going through some changes. Our web site is certainly being affected by what’s going on inside the company. In an effort, I think, to be more relevant Birkenstock is pulling the strings tighter around the sub-brands. They appear to be looking to better define the sub-brands and eliminate overlap of styles, features, and/or fabrics. This will…
