In the midst of our busy schedules between work, home, meetings, business calls, and meal-prep, we don’t often get the chance to consider footcare. In our everyday routine, foot care isn’t on the top of our self-care to-do list, but it should be.
At Sheec, we understand that an important step in footcare is wearing shoe insoles. However, we also know their downsides. While insoles can help your feet, its design can be inconvenient and harmful for your feet and your shoes. That is why we have come up with SockShion: a uniquely designed cushion for your feet that does the job of an insole without any of the negative side effects.
To better explain why our SockShion is the insole-alternative your feet deserve, we have put together some helpful information about shoe insoles, backed up clinicians and research, and added our suggestions for a better alternative.
Helping your posture
Remember all those times your mom told you to sit straight? Turns out, your feet had more to do with it than you think. According to research called The Relationship Among Foot Posture, Core and Lower Extremity Muscle Function, and Posture Stability, foot posture affects the overall posture of a person. This correlation has significance as a person’s posture is connected to things such as back pain, knee pain, fatigue, mood, and breathing efficacy, among many others.
We understand the seriousness of such issues and therefore have designed the SockShion. We know that when you are wearing shoes, especially heels, the weight of your body gets shifted to the ball of the foot, which can harm your back, knees, and hips. With SockShion, you can release the pressure onto the cushion, ensuring that your feet are pain-free and a proper posture is maintained, no matter what kind of shoes you plan on wearing.
Curing existing foot pain
However, we recommend SockShion, a cushion that provides comfort right on the ball of the foot. Unlike inserts that can easily become misplaced in your shoes, you can rely on SockShion to stay in place: it hooks onto your big and little toe to stay secure and hidden and has silicone non-skid patches to prevent slipping inside of the shoe.
Caring for your feet
Some essential parts of footcare are cleanliness and preservation. But you may be wondering, what do those have to do with shoe insoles, or even SockShion?
While shoe insoles can provide your feet with comfort, they fall short in the cleanliness department. Insoles cannot be cleaned easily, causing your feet to be exposed to unsanitary conditions inside your shoes! On the other hand, SockShion is extremely easy to wash.
Increasing your shoe’s lifespan
We all want our favorite pair of shoes to last a bit longer in our lives. At Sheec, we understand that sentiment completely, and have designed SockShion to not only care for your feet, but also your shoes.
If you know of insoles by Dr. Scholl’s, you know they are most known for their ability to stick to your shoes, so they don’t get misplaced or cause any discomfort during use. However, those insoles can damage your shoes simply because of their stickiness. And once stuck, they also cannot be readjusted for your comfort.
SockShion’s versatile quality helps your feet get comfortable in any shoe, and its antibacterial fabric keeps your shoes and feet clean and fungus-free!
