Ten Benefits of Haflinger Clogs
With summer over and cold weather on the horizon, it’s time to think winter footwear. Haflinger clogs are a perfect shoe for winter, combining function, fashion and warmth. But did you know that Haflingers are supportive, breathable and beneficial for the health of the feet and body? Read on to learn more about the many benefits of this versatile footwear.
Haflinger Clogs Enhance Your Life
These versatile shoes promote a healthy and active lifestyle, combining natural and breathable material with essential foot support.
Natural, Supportive Foot Bed
Haflinger clogs provide support for the foot arch and pressure relief for the metatarsal heads. The natural cork and latex foot bed makes them soft enough to adapt and mold to the unique shape of your foot. Overly soft, squishy footwear, however, does not offer protection or proper support.
Made of Natural, Breathable Wool
Wool is a natural and breathable insulator. It keeps your feet at room temperature, helping you remain cool in the summer and warm in the winter for year-round comfort. Synthetic materials cause feet to get hot and perspire, which opens up your veins, slows down circulation, and makes you tired.
Mimics the Foot’s Natural Shape
The feet are very complex. They are composed of 26 bones, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and a rich network of nerve endings. This masterpiece of nature does not benefit from being squeezed into tight or pointy shoes. The best shoes for healthy feet mimic the foot’s natural shape, while offering support in the arch and a supportive sole underneath.
May Relieve Plantar Fasciitis
The benefits of proper foot support and natural foot shape help the foot heal from common foot ailments such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia and tendonitis.
Exercises and Strengthens the Foot’s Muscles and Ligaments
We exercise our bodies and strengthen our bones. Why not do the same for our feet? The feet must be exercised to strengthen muscle tissue and ligaments. Haflingers provide a roomy toe box for your toes to spread out freely, contract naturally & “work out” while you walk.
Haflingers provide support not just for your feet but for your entire body. This promotes good health in muscles and bones, while easing the strain on hips, knees & the spine.
Provides Proper Weight Distribution
The cork foot bed promotes proper weight distribution, balance and ultimate comfort.
Encourages Natural Body Position
The natural foot bed encourages the body to adopt the most natural positions for standing and walking.
