Are you off your rocker (sole)?

Happy Feet Plus - MBT Rocks

Quality and function versus fad and fashion. What are you looking for?

If Joe Montana says a something is good it’s got to be true, right? Perhaps, but before you lay down any cash for a pair of rocker sole shoes do some homework. Just to let you know, Happy Feet Plus sells MBT, Cogent and Finn Comfort rocker sole footwear.

If you just want the cheapest rocker shoe in a color to match your favorite outfit, you probably do not need to read any further. On the other hand, if you’re looking for performance footwear to help work leg and glute muscles, and strengthen your back, then read on.

MBT is recognized as the originator, innovator, and creator of the rocker sole footwear category. Lots of research and development went into the design of their shoes and sandals. You can read more about the research studies by clicking here.

Any high quality shoe is going to be resoleable rather than disposable. When you have your MBT refurbished, the outsole is replaced. The Masai Sensor, which takes most of the impact on the MBT, is also replaced. So too are the shoelaces. Last, but not least, the upper is spiffed up. Can, or will, the other rocker-sole companies do the same?

You might also want to look into the academic research and professional endorsements for each brand. MBT has dozens of studies proving the benefits. Doctors, physiotherapists and trainers from around the world recommend MBT. Hospitals and clinics worldwide have used MBT’s in therapeutic applications. Endorsements from doctors, physiotherapists and trainers? These folks who have used the products to help people to recover from injuries and surgeries. How about the other guys?

Some of the competitors of MBT are spending tons of money to advertise their shoes because the rocker sole category is currently very hot. Before you buy, be sure you do your research. Look to see who’s invested time and money to develop a high quality product.

If you’re looking for something that can improve your health and fitness or help you to strengthen your back or rehabilitate certain injuries, you owe it to yourself to look at MBT. (Beware! There are counterfeit MBT’s in the market. If the price looks too good to be true…)

Happy Feet Plus has nine stores in the Tampa Bay Florida area. Our foot health specialists are well versed in the benefits of MBT footwear and can help you select the best sandals or shoes to meet your needs. Click here for locations and phone numbers.

Support your feet in the morning

Do you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis (aka “heel pain”)? Do your knees or back hurt? Often times the cause of the pain starts at your feet. Last week I told y’all about my experience finding relief from Plantar Fasciitis. This week I thought I’d mention the importance of supporting your feet at all times, especially in the morning.

When you first get out of bed you may not think that going barefoot would be a problem. But over night your muscles have relaxed and have had a few hours to recover. If you are experiencing foot problems the last thing you want to do is start the day off causing your feet to be stressed. Instead of going barefoot, slide into a Birkenstock or Kenkoh sandal when you crawl out of bed.

The Kenkoh sandal is an especially good “house slipper.” The arch is pronounced and very supportive. The massaging nodules stimulate the nerve ending in your feet and get your body’s “juices flowing.” Clinical studies have shown that wearing the Kenkoh sandal stimulates blood flow, reduces lower leg swelling, and creates a feeling of “wellbeing.” Can there be a better way to start your day?

Happy Feet Plus has been selling Kenkoh sandals since 1985. During the last 25 years thousands of people have found relief from pain wearing Kenkohs. We feel so strongly about the positive benefits of the Kenkoh sandals that we have made them one of what we call the “Foot Health Essentials.”

The “Foot Health Essentials” consist of three parts – Strengthen, Support, and Revitalize. The Kenkoh sandals represent the Revitalize. segment. The design of the sandal is based on the concept of Reflexology where the sole of the foot has nerve endings that connect with major body parts and functions. Wearing the Kenkoh sandals stimulates the nerve endings and creates a “Revitalizing” effect.

Try a pair. Wear them around the house or when you might be tempted to wear an unsupportive flip-flop. Your feet (and back, and knees…) will be glad you did.
