Somnio Closeout! Great prices!

Somnio Footwear

I know that many of you have become Somnio
fans since we have been carrying them,
including me! But it appears that they are
struggling big time! 

I placed an order several months ago and
have not been able to receive any shoes. I placed several phone calls and
sent many emails but have had absolutely no response. I took a drive to
 their headquarters and it  was vacant. I reached a previous sales rep and
was told that they got rid of all of their sales reps. I talked with several other
dealers, and they are having the same delivery problems as I am having.

I finally called their sales line and reached a real person and said “I want
to talk to someone about dealer sales.” The response I received was
“We no longer have any dealers. The shoes are only sold online.” Hmm...
I could have sworn that I was a dealer! Why was I not notified that I was
no longer a dealer? Not a way that I would do business… but we all
have a different view of integrity. Be very, very careful if you order them
online. They may never get delivered. If by some chance, you do get them
from the online store, we will fit them for a fee.

So, we will be closing out all Somnio’s at $99.95 until all are gone. It is
very sad since they are great shoes with great technology. Unfortunately,
the company's ethics do not match up to the technology…

Joya, the World's Softest Shoe, has arrived!

I am very particular when it comes to shoes, since I have foot, knee and back issues.  There are not a lot of shoes on the market that I can wear without being in pain..  but I found another to add to my very, very short list!  Although they are not touted as a pain relief shoe, they do keep my pain in check. 

As they say on their website:  Joya uses futuristic internationally patented Sole Technology that delivers a sensation while walking that has really never before been encountered. You are given the emotional experience of walking effortlessly on a concrete planet. It's not about sculpting and toning a chiseled physique. It's not about being the "cure-all" shoe for orthopedic pain. It's simply about making walking a joyful and effortless experience.

And they have a real winner here!  Come on in and try some on.  You won't regret it.

Stable versus unstable rocker shoes - What's the difference?

There is a lot of hype in the market right now about rocker sole shoes and what they can do for you. The market is growing at an unbelievable rate. One of the most popular is the Skecher Shape-up. What people do not realize is that there are two categories of rocker sole shoes: stable and unstable.

The unstable rocker sole shoes, like Skecher and MBT, allow your foot to move in all planes. In other words, not only just back to front, but also a lot of side to side motion. This works your core muscles more and is touted to tone all of the muscles in the legs. This works well for many if they have no medical conditions. One of the issues with an unstable rocker shoe is that if you have issues with flat feet, overpronation, weak ankles or weak knees, they can actually make matters worse. There is a class action lawsuit right now about exaggerated claims and injuries regarding these shoes.

The stable rocker shoes, like Z-CoiL and Tenevis, are more controlled and prevent a lot of the side to side motion so your gait cycle is more secure. Your body moves in the direction that it is supposed to move. Your alignment is better and you do not have as much rocking and rolling in your joints. The impact reduction and smoother gait makes you feel great.

Our philosophy at this point is to carry shoes that help you, not hurt you! If you are in the market for a rocker shoe, try Z-CoiL or Tenevis before you buy one of the unstable rockers. Your body will thank you as a result.

It's a pain scale from 1 to 10!

We are trying to do our best to meet the needs of all of our customers.  Some people that come into the store have minimal pain, maybe in their heel, and some people have severe pain in various parts of their bodies.  We are on a quest to find the right solutions for everyone.

OeTZI3300 Suede
Take for instance a person who has minor plantar fasciitis with minimal pain in their heel.  The OeTZI3300 has great arch support and a gel pad in the heel.  Or maybe just a Lynco orthotic with a cupped heel pad and great support will meet their needs.  An Aetrex shoe, which is double depth to provide room for your orthotic and accommodates hammertoes well, is also a great choice in this arena.  Or an Arcopedico to ease the pressure on the bunion works well for many people.

Somnio Runaissance
Someone who has pain in the ball of the foot will do well with a pair of Somnio's and a Cluffy Wedge since we can adjust the amount of cushioning in the shoe.  We can also adjust the arch support and resolve pronation issues with the Somnio with the different various wedges and insoles that they provide.  These shoes are great for runners or people that are on their feet all day.

Z-CoiL Bella
Customers with more severe pain are best suited with Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear or Tenevis to really reduce the impact on their whole skeletal system.  Both are rocker shoes that ease the impact on either the heel or the ball of the foot.  Of course, these shoes also work well on any level in the pain scale.

Tenevis La Jolla
We try to meet your needs, whether it is a one or a ten!  And we are always on a quest to find more solutions for your issues...  whether it be pain related or just dog-tired after a hard day at work!  So, give is a try and see what we can do for you. 

It is all about "customized comfort and freedom from pain"!

The OeTZI3300 has arrived!

The OeTZI3300 is a very unique shoe made with oiled suedes or canvas with a breathable yet stretch sock liner and a cork footbed designed for comfor that gradually molds to the individual footscape. They also contain a gel insert in the heel for impact reduction with every step. The antimicrobial cork foootbed combined with the soft sued or canvas upper provides an unparalleled walking experience!
OeTZI3300 takes you on a journey back in time to a prehistoric man called "Oetzi" who has been carbon dated to 3300 B.C. His mummified body, unveiled from his frozen state by global warming was wearing nothing more than the basic essentials he needed for survival - gear for protection and warmth, as well as a unique pair of shoes.

Inspired by the simple yet functional design of Oetzi's shoes, OeTZI3300 needed to be environmentally responsible and promote the art of well being. They are remastering the essentials from the past in a fresh and relevant way. They use no glues in their shoes and are also a part of a project that is working to provide financial assistance to the Arthritis foundation, since Oetzi's body showed signs of arthritis.

We are currently carrying the classic suede and the black/white canvas styles. A truly remarkable shoe at a great price, I am sure you will love how they feel on your feet!
