Most of us don’t need an excuse to buy shoes but when someone tells you they are good for your health, well, it would definitely be rude not to. And shoes that are good for you and your body especially when pregnant? Even better!
You’d expect a shoe that’s taken Doctors and Orthopedists 10 years to develop to be pretty good for your feet and posture but perhaps not very easy on the eye. But with the input of French stylist Cécile Reinaud the clever people at Shoe Therapy have created a collection of stylish flats which not only look really rather good, they’re clinically proven to relieve back and neck pain, take the pressure off your knees, help swollen feet and reduce cellulite and tone all at the same time. Phew, that’s quite a list of goodness!
They’re the first corrective shoes to be recommended to pregnant women, but you don’t need to be a mum-to-be to wear them, they provide the same support for your back and posture whether you’re carrying a little person or not. Ballet flats are great but sometimes, don’t you just wish they had a comfier sole? Here’s your answer.
