Are my feet pronated or flat?

Posted on May 24, 2014 by John Miller BHSc(Podiatry) - Podiatrist

Pronated feet often look flat, but not all flat feet are pronated.

I know, it sounds confusing! The difference is important though and a Podiatrist will be able to help you diagnosis the difference.

Flat feet are usually not a problem; it’s the pronated feet that need help.

Our website gives some practical advice to help you distinguishing between the two. If you have pronated feet wearing a Footlogics orthotic suitable for what you do may help reduce pain and discomfort.

To see a Podiatrist and get an exact diagnosis - give our friends at Foot Mechanics Podiatry a call. They have clinics across the North Island and highly trained staff. Otherwise a great first step would be to try the Footlogics Comfort for general day-today wear or the Footlogics Sport if you’re playing sports.

Did you know your muscles are the key to good health?

Posted on April 15, 2014 by John Miller BHSc(Podiatry) - Podiatrist

A researcher at the university of Western Australia has found that muscles secrete hormone-like chemicals when we exercise them.  These chemicals called myokines, are thought to reduce the low-level inflammation in the body that contributes to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's.

Different types of exercise produce different types of chemicals in the body.  So mixing it up is important.  For example strength training produces a surge of the hormone testosterone, which helps improve thinking and memory!

Staying active means having good foot health.  Footlogics New Zealand aims to provide Kiwis with affordable and effective solutions to achieve foot comfort. Our goals are to reduce or eliminate foot pain, to prevent future problems or injuries and to maximise your walking comfort.

Hi there I brought a pair of Footlogics Sensi insoles from you the other day, I would like to congratulation your company for your excellent product.

He had no discomfort at all. Thank you.
