FRANKiE4 Sneakers

Sneakers should feel like supportive clouds under your feet- and that’s how we hear customers describe ours.

We design each component with purpose- with the aim to reduce and prevent common foot symptoms for women.

Our bodies weren’t designed to walk and stand on flat, hard surfaces all day. Repetitive movements performed by our joints and muscles, and the effects of hard surfaced floors can contribute to discomfort or injury.

Fortunately, we have constructed our sneakers using clever modern materials and considered designs to help combat this!

Lightweight shock absorbing soles, clever contoured support footbeds and purposefully constructed uppers make our sneakers every woman’s solemate.

Clever Materials

The features of our shoes have evolved over the years, ensuring the product we are delivering you now is better than what we made a decade ago.

Through the evolution of our sneakers we have been able to see the difference in how much we are helping customers alleviate and prevent foot pain.

The heel has an essential inward and outward movement that enables the foot to act as a shock absorber for all the joints above it. This movement must be able to occur comfortably within the heel counter area of shoes.
 
Our ‘Goldilocks Heel Counters’ are not too firm
and not too flimsy. Made from modern and forgiving thermoplastic to work with the wearers heel,
not against it.

Most of our sneakers have soles that are dual density polyurethane- meaning they have a softer layer for cushioning and support, plus a firmer layer for durability.

Other styles have a specific blown rubber type or EVA. The materials we use in our soles are selected to provide a stable foundation and have a great memory to provide comfort from heel strike to toe off!

Our well-designed uppers, clever contoured support footbeds, and purposefully designed soles work together to provide the foot with support, shock absorption and cushioning.

Nothing compares to a FRANKiE4 sneaker- for so many reasons. Founded by Podiatrists - we’ve re-invented the way sneakers are designed.

Lightweight

– like supportive clouds under your feet!

Despite being packed with our Podiatrist Designed Sole HeroTM Footbeds and gorgeous leather uppers – our sneakers remain lightweight.

Our sneaker sole designs are free of steel shanks and heavy materials. We’ve tried and tested over many years (with steel shanks and without) - and our sneakers do not need them! 

When you wear a FRANKiE4 sneaker, we want you to feel like you are walking on supportive clouds! Experience the FRANKiE4 difference for yourself.
