    questions & answers

    The Shoe Effect is a groundbreaking study focused on transforming foot health and understanding the relationship between foot morphology and different types of footwear. We aim to provide a clearer framework and definition regarding the criteria of appropriate shoes for professionals and the general public.

    Foot health is crucial because foot problems can lead to discomfort, pain, and reduced quality of life, affecting a significant portion of the global population. All shoe-caused foot problems are completely preventable and usually start from a young age. By providing clearer guidelines we aim to educate professionals and the public so that they are able to make better choices for themselves, clients and children.

    The Shoe Effect aims to improve foot function by conducting rigorous scientific research on the impact of different types of footwear on foot morphology and biomechanics. There's a lack of research being doing today on forefoot shape on how this impacts foot health and function, along with unclear definitions of "wide" footwear and ambiguous data regarding modern footwear and orthotics, many people are left needlessly hopeless in the search for relief from pain and discomfort.

    By supporting The Shoe Effect, you become a part of a movement that can significantly influence how we approach foot health and footwear design, benefiting millions of people globally, and most importantly, preventing foot problems from arising through misinformed shoe choices placed upon our children, impacting the cost of healthcare and the quality of life.

    The Shoe Effect seeks to uncover groundbreaking insights into the relationship between foot morphology, biomechanics, and footwear to enhance foot health and overall well-being. The epidemiology of foot deformities is still argued today to be primarily a genetic factor, making many feel powerless. We aim to shoe that although genetics do play a role, improper shoes are the leading cause.

    The Shoe Effect's research can significantly influence how the footwear industry designs and produces shoes, leading to more foot-friendly and ergonomic designs for consumers.

    Absolutely! By supporting The Shoe Effect, you'll be empowering research that can lead to better understanding and solutions for various foot problems.

    Your investment in The Shoe Effect will contribute to advancing scientific research, which can lead to better-informed footwear choices and improved foot health for individuals worldwide.
