Many of us lead busy lives and with so much time on our feet, this can sometimes lead to aching feet. However, pain associated with foot conditions, shouldn’t be so uncomfortable that it affects our everyday activities.

Here at Mikko Shoes, it’s our purpose to help you find the perfect, supporting fit and to help to reduce that pain, 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 made especially in a wider width and supple leather. 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 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 painful conditions such as neuromas, nerve pain or arthritis.

German company, Ara, is also well known for two high tech ingredients. Their Dynergy soles reduce pressure and impact through the foot.  3D waves aid shock absorption, whilst their Fusion 4 technology creates a form fitting fabric that adapts to every foot – yes, science can be fabulous!

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 NEW S18 catalogue 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. Even better, summer styles are now on Sale!
