The BENDY has a wonderful propriety, removable and eco footbed that does not include a false arch support. We have considered foot health every step of the way during our research and development process.
Our feet are designed with many small bones that help us balance and support our bodies. When a typical person wears arch supports, this leaves the shoe to do all of the work that the arch is naturally supposed to do. It actually weakens the foot.
The BENDY has a nice roomy toe box that allows for natural movement and flex. If the toe box is too narrow, then natural expansion of the feet can't happen. Our feet shouldn’t be crammed in shoes. Instead, we should be able to comfortably move our toes.
By constantly wearing shoes with little support such as flip flops, sandals, wedges or no height difference from front to back heel, it can harm the foot’s health. These types of shoes change how we walk because we need to clench our toes to grip the shoe. Each step forces us to change our feet to be in a fixed, non flexible position.
