Good fo the sole

Advantages: Shoes actually designed for your feet, not for fashion
Disadvantages: The hefty price tag
Rieker Antistress have been making shoes for over 130 year so by now you'd think they would know what they were doing.
Rieker opened the first factory in Germany in1874 and after his death his sons Ernst, Heinrich Jnr and Karl took over the company.
The company quickly grew and despite exponential growth it still remains under family control. Markus Rieker thas been in control since 1975 and the company has moved strength to strength.
The company remain constant in producing high quality shoes which are good for the sole - sorry, couldn't resist.
We've suddenly got a store in the Meadowhall Shopping centre. This particular store is wider than it is deep and stocks only Riekers products. Despite being an old company Riekers still produce some great modern shoes suited for most ages.
There are the odd pair more suited to pensioners rather than party pants but that's a good thing.
The store has plenty of seats and mirrors to further aid good fit with time and comfort and helping you with staff members to make an informed purchase.
Most shoes cost around £45+. I found some lovely summery shoes I liked at £45 but I don't need them so desperately to indulge. Perhaps if they go into a sale I'll invest, antistress shoes have got to be a good thing.
Rieker Antistress shoes are lighter than average, have a snug fit at the heel to restrict slipping and decrease movement inside the shoe, the shoes are especially flexible to maintain movement of the foot, flexible stitching to maintain movement and thermoplastic soles.
The price can be high but the suitability is worth it.
Summary: Sensible shoes for sensible people but without the square reputation
