COMFORTABLE AND NATURAL FOOTWEAR
SEEING THE WHOLE PICTURE
The most comfortable shoes in the world are naturally shaped footwear which take into consideration the shape of the foot inside the shoe. This is the only way to have truly comfortable shoes, hiking boots, sandals and even golf shoes which feel good whenever you wear them.
The idea is relatively simple. But, where does one find naturally shaped footwear?
The most comfortable footwear is usually not found pre-made in a store. The most comfortable footwear is almost always obtained from a custom shoemaker. The art of crafting custom made shoes is acquired with experience. And, to create a naturally shaped shoe the shoemaker needs to know the unique process of taking plaster casts of the feet.
Each pair of shoes has to be made around individual reproductions of the feet. No two pair of shoes are exactly alike because no two people are exactly alike. In fact, many people have two slightly different feet. And, individual foot casting solves the problem because each shoe is fabricated to the measurements and contours of each foot.
The inside of the shoe should be built to fit the form of the foot (the reproduction of the foot). Many times the inside of the right shoe needs to be different than the left shoe because the wearer's feet are different.
Therefore, foot comfort dictates that the most advantageous method of making
shoes, boots and sandals should start with a three dimensional cast of each persons foot. The rest of the process also takes the skills of an experienced craftsman to make finely finished shoes, boots, hiking boots, golf shoes and sandals by using specialized techniques of molding materials around the reproductions from the inside outward.
If you want to experience real foot comfort, then you need to find a shoemaker who makes custom molded shoes because there is nothing more comfortable than naturally fitting custom made molded footwear. You will feel better, work better and play better with your feet comfortable in properly fitting shoes.
