These Boots Are Made For Walkin’…Geelong Podiatrist, Amy Leverett Talks FRANKiE 4 Winter Boots..

March 28, 2017


On a wintery weekend you may find yourself exploring Melbourne or around the Bellarine Peninsula. I don’t mean trekking, necessarily- although it’s fun too- but rather jumping between suburbs, bouncing between cafes, window shopping with friends or walking to the MCG for the footy, especially when parking is sparse.

Walking is the perfect choice of transport and great incidental exercise, especially during winter when it’s often difficult to crawl out of bed to hit the gym. As the weather starts to get chilly winter boots become a popular choice of footwear. However, the wrong pair can turn a casual frosty stroll into absolute torture.

Yes, we could wear our supportive and functional runners or sneakers, but they may look a bit strange without activewear. So we have listed some of our favourite FRANKiE 4 boots that won’t hurt your feet while keeping them snuggled up and warm.

Top Pick: FRANKiE 4- The SaLLI (Black or Tan)   

These boots are Podiatrist & Physiotherapist designed with a removable Functional Footbed. Additionally they provide: 

  • Heel and arch support with forefoot cushioning.  
  • A fit for wide, standard and narrow feet.
  • A leather upper and lined foot bed with a durable rubber sole for comfort.
  • Furthermore, they have a stable heel and side zip for easy access.

You can dress these up or down, SALLi is the leader and the go-to ankle boot this season.

Our second choice is the FRANKie 4 JAZZ (pictured below) 

The JAZZ is a new and must needed flat boot. This boot features:

  •  An angled side zip for easier access
  • A smooth toe shape, and of course includes the FRANKiE 4  footbeds for extra comfort.
  • Available in two colours, JAZZ is the ideal boot for those on their feet all day.

Pro Feet Podiatry stocked these boots for good reason- because they’re insanely comfortable. If you want a pair of good quality, comfortable and fashionable boots, then pop into one of our clinics today for a recommendation on a boot that will fit best for your feet on a winter’s day.
