Comfort & Well Being
The dangers of wearing high heels have long been in the headlines, but did you know that experts have discovered that injuries relating to high heels have doubled over the past decade?
Almost half of women have suffered foot problems after wearing an uncomfortable pair of heels. Considering that feet are one of the hardest working parts of our bodies (and in a lifetime you will walk in excess of 150,000 miles!), it’s shocking how little regard we have for them.
On average, high heels start to hurt after just one hour and six minutes of being worn, but 20% of women will start to feel the pinch within just 10 minutes!
One in four women have resorted to dancing bare foot in a nightclub or bar and one in three women have been forced to remove their shoes and walk home barefoot because of the excruciating pain from their heels.
And here’s one last fact for you – a staggering 89% of women admitted that uncomfortable shoes had ruined their day.
We take comfort incredibly seriously but we also make sure that we take those further steps to ensure that we marry comfort with beautiful design. Afterall, our Cocorosers are incredibly stylish - and busy - women!
From the moment you step into your Cocorose shoes, your feet will be cushioned and cocooned in luxurious comfort. We don't make rigid and uncomfortably structured shoes that you need to spend days breaking into. We only use soft, supple leathers and materials to gently envelope your feet and ensure we minimise any seams so they don't press on sensitive joints.
Rather than a single layered insole, we incorporate double cushioned insoles in all of our shoes to fully support the balls of your feet and your heels, imparting extra sponginess and comfort.
We even have pillowed Achilles' heels to ensure there's no pinching on the backs of your heels, which is so often felt in highly structured or elasticated shoes.
We spent months and months developing our special outer soles, which beautifully marry durability and flexibility. Our outsoles have a non-slip front disc and a sturdy, 8mm heel, ensuring that, importantly, you're not completely flat on the ground.
In some models, we've even got concealed wedge heels, giving an extra 1cm lift for even further comfort.
