The secret to the perfect fit


Many of us lead busy lives and with so much time on our feet, this can sometimes lead to aching feet. Here at Mikko Shoes, it’s our purpose to help you find the perfect, supporting fit, without compromising on style.

Each brand we stock creates footwear made with cushioned insoles, durable outsoles and the softest of leathers. Many of them also have removable insoles, making it easy to insert your own personalised and prescribed orthotics for a perfectly fitting solution.


If you have a wider foot or suffer from bunions, ask our podiatry trained in-store stylists about brands designed especially for wider fittings. We have several brands that specialise in width fittings including extra depth and volume for the toe, as well as supple leathers designed to ease around wider feet. We have an array of chic, flattering and, most importantly, comfortable cuts.

Though we work with heritage family brands, some of whom have been around for generations, they are all invested in modern technology.


Most shoe styles from Spanish brand, Wonders, for example, have a Memory Gel insole. Wonderfully cushioned, they remember their shape rather than compressing down over time. This retains comfort for many years to come, and is particularly ideal for alleviating any painful foot conditions.

German company, Ara, is also well known for their many high-tech ingredients. Their Highsoft technology features flexible and supple padded insoles to reduce pressure and impact through the foot – yes, science can be fabulous!

Gabor’s Air-Cube and ClarusHovercraft technology use purposefully placed air pockets within the sole to create extra cushioning that softens every step, while still maintaining stability and structure.


If you’re looking for a natural solution, the soles of French brand Arche are created from 100% natural latex – a property that is equal parts durable and shock absorbing, for ultimate comfort under foot.


So, what was that secret about the perfect fit?  It’s simply about making the right investment in quality footwear that will ensure comfort and support for years to come.  We are passionate that style should never compromise comfort and are here to help you.  

Check out our website for inspiration and look for the ‘Orthotic Friendly’ symbol next to certain styles – they have a removable foot-bed which can be replaced with your personalised orthotic. Happy shopping!
