Gimme Three Steps

That well-known 70’s southern rock band who begs for the chance to take three steps out the door knows how important three steps can be. The Good Feet Store does too. But we aren’t talking about escaping from our dance partner’s other dance partner. We’re talking about foot health and Good Feet’s Three Step System, which includes a pair of Strengtheners, Maintainers, and Relaxers. Each pair is available in a wide range of flexibilities – extra firm to soft – and promotes maximum comfort and performance.

In the song, the focus is on romance and staying out of trouble. The Good Feet Store does encourage staying out of trouble, but the ‘three steps’ that are focused on are a little different. The Three Step System specializes in giving the body the opportunity to align itself, starting with the feet. Alignment means that the body is moving in a natural, fluid way that feels good and isn’t forced or uncomfortable.

The Three Step System starts with the Strengtheners. These supports exercise the feet by positioning them appropriately as well as encouraging the muscles and tendons to collaborate efficiently. The supports are designed to strengthen the feet into a more ideal position. This product is doing the majority of the work on the foot and offers the most support. These supports may help guide the feet to better alignment, improving the way the feet carry the body.

The next step helps with maintenance: The Maintainers are designed to help the feet maintain their re-aligned position when they are not supported by the Strengthener support. Maintainers may help the feet retain their ideal alignment without attempting to strengthen them any further. The Maintainers fit into thinner shoes and can be worn during high-impact sports, and to enhance the effects of the Strengthener supports. To achieve these goals, Maintainers feature lower arch supports, little or no metatarsal rise, and slight heel cups, if any are present at all.

As with the rest of the body, the feet cannot constantly be in a state of exercise. The third and final Relaxer supports are less aggressive than the others and are made of more flexible materials. To help the feet ‘relax,’ these arch supports are designed without a metatarsal rise, which enables the feet to rest while giving enough support to help prevent the arch from flattening. These supports are thin enough to be worn in any shoe, from dress shoe to slipper.

Good Feet arch supports give you the function you need and let you have the style you want. No matter what your style is, we’ve got you covered. You can feel as good as you look – all day (and all night) long, so if you do happen to get caught out dancing with Linda Lou, you’ll be caught in comfort.
