An estimated 87 percent of the general population suffers from foot-related problems, most of which can be linked to improper support for flat feet or high arches, wearing improper footwear, walking or standing on hard surfaces for long periods of time, being overweight or suffering from sports injuries. While many people looking for relief turn to the various arch supports and cushion products they see in retailers like drug and grocery stores, Good Feet takes the process to another level.
Good Feet sales consultants take each customer through a personal bio-mechanical balancing and measurement process to identify the customer’s primary activities and shoe style preferences. Next, the customer is personally fit with arch supports and cushions that can provide them with the comfort, balance and support.
“There are so many people in our community suffering from foot, back, and knee pain. This is our way to help them become pain free,” said Dan Austad, owner of the Good Feet Stores in Oregon.
Good Feet products are designed to support all four of the foot’s arches, which makes the personal fitting process so important. Through better foot support, a person’s body weight is more evenly distributed which maximizes stability and balance, and can reduce pressure that can cause discomfort, not just in the feet, but upwards through the legs, hips and back.
Good Feet is located in Clackamas, Tigard, Hillsboro and Salem. For details or directions, call 503-546-4224. Store hours are Monday-Saturday from 10am-6pm and 11am-5pm Sunday (Excluding Salem on Sunday hours).
