We’re huge fans of physiotherapists, our designer is one! What was it that made you want to be a physiotherapist?

I wanted to be a physio from the time I was an early teenager. My Dad was a rugby player and I thought the female physio who looked after their team was incredible so I wanted to be like her. I ended up working for her for a year after I graduated.

What is your favourite part of being a physiotherapist?

My favourite part of being a physio is helping people discover the source of their pain and being able to help them resolve it. People are always very grateful.

What are the most common foot problems you see in your female patients?

The most common foot problems I see in female patients is plantar fasciopathy and other problems associated with over-pronation or poor arch control.


What features of FRANKiE4 do you think could benefit your female patients?

The supportive nature of Frankie4 shoes would benefit so many of my patients. Even many of those who don't realise they need support. They are also stylish so people don't think of them as an orthopaedic shoe.


How did you like your FRANKiE4s?

I got the Nats in cream and I wear them to work every day now. They are very comfortable and a lot of people comment on them. I have fairly significant pes planus in both feet.  I'm also nearly 7 months pregnant now, and I'm finding the shoes give me excellent support and I can stand up in them all day without any foot pain.

In three words describe what FRANKiE4 means to you? 

Support. Comfort. Style
