Ballet flats

Ballet flats, a versatile choice for women and girls alike, have gained popularity across all age groups. They serve both as a fashion statement and a comfortable alternative to high heels, seamlessly complementing a wide range of outfits, from casual ensembles like jeans, shorts, and skirts to more formal attire like dresses and leggings.

When you step into our PROTETIKA ballet flats, or ballerinas as they're affectionately called, you're stepping into a world of timeless elegance. These flats, available in classic black, effortlessly exude chic style and are the perfect accompaniment to any ensemble. Their versatile design ensures they suit every aesthetic, guaranteeing you a plethora of compliments wherever you go. Whether you're heading to a casual coffee morning, a lively BBQ dinner, or a popular Saturday brunch, our ballet flats add a playful yet fashionable touch.

For the businesswoman navigating long days at the office, these ballet flats provide unparalleled comfort for her feet. Starting at EU size 36, they're even suitable for young girls like my daughter, who wore them as part of her school uniform at just 9 years old. Their flexibility and padded footbed strike the perfect balance, ensuring a comfortable stride without every little floor imperfection causing discomfort.

Crafted with high-quality leather on the outside, a leather innersole, and a breathable mesh interior, these flats epitomize durability. As flats take center stage in fashion this season, they've captured the hearts of trendsetters worldwide, dominating the streets and leaving an indelible mark on the fashion landscape.

Heel Pumps

The term "pumps" originated in the 1500s, referring to the plain, heel-less shoes called "pompes" worn by men and servants. Over time, they transformed from basic men's footwear to ornate, heeled shoes for women.

Known as court shoes in British English or pumps in American English, they feature a low-cut front (vamp) and are fastened with a shoe buckle or black bow. This design evolved from 17th and 18th-century shoes with buckles, giving rise to the vamped pump in the late 18th century.

For optimal comfort, opt for kitten heels, wedge heels, or those with chunky or block heels. They offer greater support, making them more comfortable for extended wear. Thin, high heels should be avoided if comfort is a priority.

Peep-toe shoes may be suitable in workplaces with a more relaxed dress code, but open-toe styles are generally inappropriate for most offices.

Court shoes go well with both formal and smart casual attire. They particularly shine when paired with formal dresses and pencil skirts.

Neutral colors like black, beige, and dark blue are incredibly versatile, effortlessly complementing a wide range of outfits. These hues serve as excellent counterpoints to bolder ensembles, allowing for mix-and-match or tonal coordination. Our eshop offers an array of pump shoes in beige, nude, blue, and black.

Research indicates that high heels lend a more feminine gait to women. The raised heel shortens the stride and increases hip rotation and tilt.

Pumps strike a balance between flashy and understated, making them the perfect choice for business attire or slightly formal occasions. Whether high-heeled or low-heeled, they are considered the more relaxed and comfortable option among dress shoes.

Pumps fall into the category of high heels, characterized by their closed-toe design. They cover the sides of the foot and typically lack buckles.

The average heel height for pumps is around 3 inches (7.5cm), falling within the mid-height range of 2-3 inches (5-7.5cm). Our PROTETIKA pumps feature a classic heel height between 4 and 5 cm, offering comfort for all-day wear.

Slip-on orthopedic sandal slides

You've captured the heart of your prince, living a happy life. For quick errands and tending to children, cork orthopedic sandals are the perfect choice. They've come a long way from the clunky ones that announced your arrival; now they're lightweight, vibrant, and a chic companion for your ventures.

PROTETIKA's certified orthopedic sandals feature an insole designed for stability and cushioning. This ensures they protect against issues like calluses, bunions, and foot discomfort. They also help decrease pressure on specific areas of the foot, thus providing excellent shock absorption and arch support.

With proper care, your shoes will maintain their charm for months. A gentle wipe of the upper and avoiding extreme heat exposure will keep them looking great. The cork footbed offers a cushioned feel with reliable arch support, ensuring comfort during long walks.

Beyond appearances, PROTETIKA's orthopedic shoes make comfort a priority. They have an anatomic design, orthotic footwear that truly lives up to our promise at Feel Good Shoes LLC. Your feet will thank you.
