A few weeks ago I wrote about the importance of buying your children proper shoes and many of you agreed with me that high quality, supportive footwear is a must. Yet somehow we mums seem to care a lot less for our own feet and we settle for cheap, flimsy shoes ourselves that may be on trend but far from good for our feet. It’s time to step up to the plate this year and look after yourself with fabulous shoes that are fit for a queen:
Australian footwear label FRANKiE4 is all about comfort, support and quality, but they also understand that style conscious women want a classy look too. Designed by a podiatrist and physiotherapist FRANKiE4 shoes help prevent and treat common foot problems like heel or arch pain, plantas fasciitis and forefoot pain so you can walk around with a spring in your step (again).
The latest FRANKiE4 collection offers a range of gorgeous styles that allow women to look stylish and fashionable this season while caring for their feet at the same time. From classic ballet flats to comfy slip-ons and from lace-up sneakers to strappy sandals, FRANKiE4 has your summer look covered. I live in dresses during the warmer months so I love a pretty sandal myself and this beautiful ALiX design ticks all the boxes for me.
The ALiX sandal (RRP $199.95, available in black, chestnut and blue) is made with lovely soft leather and wide adjustable straps that keep your feet comfortably in place when you walk. Unlike flat and floppy thongs the ALiX features a slight heel for a feminine look and a podiatrist designed built-in functional footbed with heel cradle, arch support and cushioning, it’s like slipping your feet into a comfy pair of slippers!
What I love about these black ALiX sandals is their timeless design and versatile colour, they look great with a dress or skirt but fabulous with jeans too. When you are on your feet a lot (as a busy mum of four I am always running around) you want comfort and these sandals really shape to suit your feet, the more you wear them the better they fit. I also love that you can easily adjust the pleated strap across your forefoot for a perfect fit for every foot and every time.
As a special treat the ALiX sandal comes with two sets of decorative buckles, a FRANKiE4 logo buckle and classic pin buckle, so you can dress up the velcro ankle straps or wear them plain. You can position the buckles as you please so that they do not dig or bump into your ankle bones and affect your comfort.
