Arcopedico Shoes began making their hand-made footwear in Portugal over 50 years ago.
Today, Arcopedico continues to make their healthy footwear, but they now make their products for the entire world.
Their shoes don't just look good. They feel good too. They are scientifically engineered to weightlessly cradle your feet with both luxurious comfort and serious support.
Their classic Mary Janes styles will keep you fashionable when you go into the office during the work week, and their line of casual LS Shocks sneakers are perfect for any activity you decide to get out and do on the weekends.
It was way back in 1966 that Italian scientist Elio Parodi originally invented his orthopedic knit shoes.
Applying science to the design of his Arcopedico footwear, Parodi made sure to keep the uppers extra lightweight and non-binding, to allow for the body's healthy circulation to the lower limbs. Using non-binding, knitted fabrics also allowed for good air flow around the feet.
The soft, stretchy knit uppers are especially comfortable for those who suffer with bunions, corns and calluses.
Being a scientist, it was Parodi's belief that the arches of the feet were essentially the pillars of the spine. With this in mind, he made his footwear with orthopedic soles, that would evenly distribute the body's weight across the soles of the feet. This makes Arcopedico shoes a great choice for those who suffer with Plantar Fasciitis.
Arcopedico shoes have Twin-Arch support and simple, unique syling that let's you look fashionable, while also promoting the health of your feet.
You can feel good about wearing Arcopedico footwear. They even make shoes that are Vegan Friendly and machine washable!
At the University of Porto, Portugal, Arcopedico Shoes has established a scientific partnership with the Institute for Science and Innovation in Mechanical Engineering.
It is here that Arcopedico continues their research and innovative development that they use in creating their entire line of health-conscious, orthopedic footwear.
