"I LOVE my FRANKiE4’s! I wear them daily to work and have worn them on weekends with casual wear. I love that they can be worn for many occasions and you can choose how much support you need from the interchangeable inner soles.

From day one, they have been comfortable to wear for long periods of standing and walking. The wonderful arch support, forefoot cushioning, heel support and stylish nature of FRANKiE4’s could benefit my female patients. I have had countless compliments on my FRANKiE4 ELLiE shoes since wearing them, which proves that style can equal comfort."

Physiotherapist

"Love them! It’s great to have a pair of shoes you know will treat your feet well when you’ve got some walking to do but still goes well with your outfit!

The built in customisable arch support can assist in maintaining ideal posture of the foot and ankle and reduce the chance of injury/pain or aid recovery from injury."

"Good quality supportive shoes are a must for anyone with joint pains and balance issues. I love them! I just ordered two more pairs."

— VIDYA LAWTON —
Physiotherapist

"I think the arch support is amazing- and the fact that the shoes are very pretty and fashionable (no one wants comfy shoes that make them look like a nanna!!) I live in my FRANKiE4s. They are so super comfortable, and I get so many comments as well."

"The arch support will be a great benefit for clients. Also it’s made of leather which provides more lateral support to reduce some pronation and providing more stability for those that are prone to sprains."

— PAULA MCGAHAN —
Podiatrist

"I think the FRANKiE4 shoes with the insole feature is greatly beneficial to our female patients. Provides support, comfort and flexibility of being able to remove for a functional orthotic with the patient requires this. They were instantly comfortable, no need for wear in process. I have a wide forefoot and I was worried the shoe would be too tight initially. However, I had no teething issues."

— RHI SCHOONRAAD —
Physiotherapist

"I love my FRANKiE4’s, they’re really comfortable and great for work as I do spend a lot of time on my feet and running around after kids so it’s great to have a supportive shoe. I do notice the difference on days where I’ve worn them as my feet don’t ache so much when I get home! "

— JULIANA RENICKE—
Physiotherapist

"I’ve been wearing my NATs for a few weeks now and it has been great! When I wear other shoes, I find that my feet are very sore and achy after standing or walking for most of the day. However, this does not happen when I have my Frankie4 on! This particular style (NAT) is also ideal for health workers as they offer protection against spills and can easily be wiped off. The soles have good grip which means that I feel safe when helping my clients with gait retraining and negotiating steps.

— LAUREN FUNNELL —
Physiotherapist

"I think female patients will benefit from the ability to modify the fit of the shoes. Women’s feet can change through pregnancy and other life stages so being able to add extra support is a great option. I find the different lacing styles a simple way to make the shoe work to an individual’s foot shape. Plus they look great and women appreciate a good looking comfortable shoe. "

— MARIA STEPHENS —
Physiotherapist

"Frankie4 shoes have great arch support and cushioning that provides support all day long.  Not only are they comfortable and practical, but funky and fashionable as well, which is a tick when it comes to recommending good footwear for our clients. "

— CHRISTINE WILLIAMS —
Physiotherapist

"I have lots of trouble with a rogue little toe on one of my feet that gives me trouble in most shoes. However I used the half footbed on one foot to give my toe more room, and the full on the other foot! Genius. I have always worn runners to work (at the hospital) as I had never found an alternate shoe I could spend the day in and still feel comfortable. I think when you have comfy shoes on it gives you energy! I wear my Frankie’s now – and finally feel trendy at the same time!"

— JESSICA MARTE —
Physiotherapist

"Loved them! Being a physio, I have the luxury of spending most of my days in running shoes, but I always have struggled finding comfortable, fashionable shoes to wear out for meetings or dinners. It has always seemed like I had to choose between fashion and comfort, and Frankie4s are the perfect balance of both! The Beths were the shoes I have been looking for – good looking but sensible and supportive too! (Great qualities of a perfect partner too.)

I also liked the custom fit pack which is considerate of the fact that all feet are different; and the dual laces (white and black) help change up the look!"

— KAITLYN TANDY —

"Comfortable supportive shoes that look great.  I commonly have patients who are looking for a nice shoe that also provides support or can fit their orthotics. The ability to custom fit each pair to their individual feet depending on width is incredible and something I have never seen offered before."

— CRIS BARKER —

"I have wide feet so the FRANKiE4 Jackie’s worked really well with the half sole for me - still lots of support but enough space for my forefoot! Also liked that they’re leather and soften with time, and can be dressed up or down."

— MELISSA NEWTON —
Physiotherapist

"They are amazing, honestly my feet are in heaven at work these days! My colleagues are jealous. I love that FRANKiE4 have a variety of shoe fit, that they can be tailored to you or your client."

— CRIS BARKER —

"The FRANKiE4 footbed is super comfortable for anyone who is on their feet a lot.  I like the arch support and heel cup combination for supporting a more neutral alignment at the midfoot and hindfoot.  Plus the arch support and forefoot cushioning together provides much more comfort for those with forefoot problems. The BiLLiE’s have been great! They were comfortable from the very first wear and they support my feet really nicely as I have high arches, so flat shoes are no good for me."

— EMILY NORMAN —
Physiotherapist

"ALL the features of FRANKiE4 Footwear could benefit my female patients! In particular though, I think the point of differences are:

-variety of shoes for different occasions b/c
let’s face it-even women with injuries want to be stylish
but comfortable & pain free!

-styles for broad feet & narrow feet
-ability to wear orthotics within the shoes
& with comfort & ease.

-FRANKIE4 custom control inserts
-great customer service"

"For patients having a stable base of support is really important when learning to stand or walk again. But more importantly having a shoe that offers support but also looks cool is fantastic! Why should people with a disability have to wear old fashioned shoes? I think it’s great that there is a fashionable but supportive option."

— BARBARA POWELL —
Podiatrist

"I love the look, certainly brighten up my boring scrubs, very comfortable, I spend one day a week walking around the wards and so far so good. I love the design of the footbed, arch support and cushioning properties, and the ability to semi customise."

— STEPHANIE PATTERSON —
Physiotherapist

"I currently have plantar fasciitis in my right foot.  This is following significant ankle instability from ankle injuries.  I have been wearing unsupportive shoes to walk the dog too often eg converse which have absolutely no cushioning or support. Wearing the Frankie4 has made a massive improvement in this. A massive revelation to me was that they did not need “wearing in", like so many other shoes that often cause blisters initially etc."

— AMANDA HENDY —
Nurse

"Love them! Have had lots of comments with the silver work shoes and my feet also say thank you! I love the unique design, comfortable supportive footbed and even though I’ve worn mine lots they still look brand new so they wear well."

— STEPH PULMAN —
Physiotherapist

"My FRANKiE4 ELLiEs are brand new and my feet have not skipped a beat wearing them. No blisters and my feet feel amazing after running up and downstairs across the hospital all day. That is a big ask for a new pair of shoes."

— RHIANNON HUGHES —
Physiotherapist

"I love them. They are so comfortable you almost forget you have them on. Being a Physio on my feet all day I have to be in something supportive and cushioned."

— NAT JEFFREYS —
Nurse

"These are simply the most impressive shoes on the market. Every nurse wants to look stylish and fashionable, even if you’re wearing bright red scrubs- like me. FRANKiE4 can provide that. Every nurse needs comfort, all day comfort - FRANKiE4 can provide that too. Now let’s talk practicality, leather, black, wipe them clean, no stains, no germs, no problem!"

— TEGAN ELLIOT —
Nurse

"I have been carrying on to everyone about my FRANKiE4’s since I received them, I just love them so much! They’re the first pair of work shoes that have transitioned to use outside of the hospital, they look fabulous! Most importantly however, after some long hard shifts (plus being 6 months pregnant) my feet aren’t sore and that is why I’ll be returning every year for another pair!"

— SALLY WALLACE —
Nurse

"The features of FRANKiE4 that suit Nursing are the comfortable and adjustable soles, arch support and also the fun colours and styles for all tastes! I chose the ELLiE's in Navy, they are very comfortable (particularly as I have high arches), easy to care for (the Navy colour covers many spills!) and a joy to step into at the beginning of the work day!"

— CASEY HELMORE —
Physiotherapist

"A big part of people getting better is being able to unload the injured area. Given that FRANKiE4 have multiple inserts for the perfect fit means that the injury can be unloaded to some extent even when you have to be on your feet. Sometimes with the mention of orthotics people cringe because they picture big chunky shoes to try and fit them into, but when I show them FRANKiE4's they are immediately more interested!"

— NGAN HARWOOD —
Podiatrist

"The supportive inner soles with additions to alter the shoes depth is a great feature as it makes it easier for patients to fit orthotics. The wide non-tapered forefoot would benefit most female patients as it replicates the natural shape of the foot. I love my ELLiE's! They felt comfortable from the get-go and I managed to walk around the streets of Berlin without any hassles."

— KYM ELLIS —
Podiatrist

"Words cannot describe how amazing it is to be able to put them on and walk all day in comfort. The incredibly cushioned arch support is so beneficial to my female patients"

— JESSICA WILLIAMS —
Nurse

"I loved the comfort and style! I work in a couple of areas which either has me running around or standing in the one spot for hours and I have found that the FRANKiE4 are the best shoes for my situation! Best thing is, they look so good compared to other supportive shoes. I would honestly suggest these shoes to anyone who has to work on their feet all day such as retail workers, sales people, Doctors, Physiotherapists etc."

— JASMINE KOUCH —
Podiatrist

"I have been wearing my FRANKiE4’s for work and professional functions. My feet generally have a wider toebox and so I was concerned that it would not fit into the shoes but I was very pleasantly surprised! They have been great for wearing all day."

— PRISCILLA TAIT —
Physiotherapist

"Often we talk about a comfortable supportive shoe with patients but often patients find these shoes come with a lack of style. FRANKiE4 shoes offer on-trend styles paired with comfort and support. I love my FRANKiE4 NAT’s in cream. They go with everything from shorts to dresses and are super comfortable."  

— JULIE O'DONOGHUE —
NURSE

"Obviously we are all different but the custom fit footbeds make the shoe adaptable to suit any foot. The shoes have leather uppers and the cushioning and support along with the weight of the shoe would be a huge plus for any nurse on his/her feet all day."

— JENNA MOONEY —
Physiotherapist

"I LOVE my NATs. They are perfect with a range of outfits and are so comfortable and supportive. I am currently pregnant, with my first child, have really noticed the different stresses on my body - the cushioning and support in my NAT shoes makes all the difference to long days on my feet!! I can’t wait to try more of the FRANKiE4 range!"

— KATE HILLIER —
Podiatrist

"The firm heel counter, firm shank and spacious width and depth in the forefoot tick a lot of boxes in regards to footwear features that benefit most female patients. However I particularly love the removable innersoles that allow an orthotic to slide straight in for that additional support that so many feet require. I love wearing my FRANKiE4 shoes, finally there are stylish shoes I can wear my orthotics in that allows my feet to be comfortable all day long! "

— MARNI PYLE —
Podiatrist

"I really love my FRANKiE4's! The leather is beautiful and soft and I love the combination of style and support in the NAT's I I chose. I can wear them all day comfortably, even without my orthotics in them. I have worn them on days when I have done a lot of walking and have had great comfort all day. Very happy with them, I have already been recommending them everyone!"

— AMY MCCLELLAND —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 meets the stylish profile most of my patients are looking for whilst still providing the important structures in a shoe that I look for as a Podiatrist. This is often a difficult meeting point for myself and my patients. It’s fantastic to be able to tell my patients to look at the FRANKiE4 range and find we are both happy."

— ASHLEIGH MOORE —
Podiatrist

"My female patients can most definitely benefit from the cushioned footbed which can help reduce stress and strain therefore reducing corn / callous build up, great support and the well thought out toe box which is like no other reducing pressure and irritation on the toes."

— RACHEL OLLINGTON —
Podiatrist

"These shoes are both functional, comfortable and very good looking! A combination which in the past has been impossible to find. Many women put up with sore feet and foot issues so they can continue to wear pretty shoes but FRANKiE4’s eliminate this conundrum! I love how you can customise the shoe to fit the foot width."

— AMY HOLMES —
Nurse

"I think that these shoes are appealing to wear as they look good, they have a modern feel. They can be cleaned, and come in a variety of colours. One pair for work, one pair for weekends. As many people have already said, from the moment you put these lovelies on, you can feel the support and comfort. I really love these shoes, and I'm planning to buy many more pairs."

— HEIDI CHIN —
Podiatrist

"The FRANKiE4 shoes have a deep heel cup. By having an increased depth of the shoe, you are able to slip in your custom orthotics in with ease and comfort with no risk of you ‘stepping out’ of your shoe. The customisable width allows you to comfortably accommodate for a broad
forefoot- especially in the case of bunions. Anatomically shaped toe box reduces the cramping of toes, a common culprit for nerve conditions and corns between toes. The firm heel counter increases stability of the ankle."

— ANNE MAREE HANRICK —
Podiatrist

"A good heel counter, supportive insole and ability to customise fit, in a stylish shoe, assists women in achieving better foot health on many levels.  Patient compliance is much more achievable when you show the ladies a FRANKiE4."

— CAROLINE WILSON —
Podiatrist

"I have quite the wide foot and the ELLiEs have been so easy to wear all day, from day one! The insole is great as well as the appropriate sized toe box and the ribbon laces get a lot of complements!"

— COURTNEY PERRETT —
Podiatrist

"The cushioning and support in the footbed is a big win as well as the option to use to ¾ innersole is also brilliant for those with bunions or a wide forefoot.  There is also the option to remove the footbed and use their own orthotic and the FRANKiE4’s are the absolute perfect base for all orthotics."

— DENIKKA GREAVES —
Podiatrist

"I LOVE FRANKiE4 footwear, they’re so comfortable, fashionable (which is of course important to women) and easy to wear!"

— ELLEN SAMPSON —
Nurse

"I love my FRANKiE4s, they are both trendy and comfortable. I am not having to panadol for aching legs at night on my working days."

— CHLOE TAIFALOS —
Nurse

"Pacing up and down the wards was like walking on clouds and they are so easy to take on and off which is important for me when working with babies on the ground. The customisable inserts make it ideal for patient-specific issues…I think the added bonus of not looking like ‘nanna shoes’ makes in an easier sell to those teenage girls too!"

— ELYSIA ANDREWS —
Podiatrist

"I love my FRANKiE4's! For a long time I have searched for a pair of smart casual shoes that look good but can accommodate my orthotics and FRANKiE4 does just that. The photo I have included is of me and my FRANKiE4s on our latest holiday to Hawaii! They enabled me to do so much walking on my holiday whilst secretly wearing my orthotics and kept my feet feeling great!"

— EMMA MUNRO —
Nurse

"My FRANKiE4s are great like no other nursing shoe I've tried, and believe me after 23 years of nursing it's a treat for my feet.  My ELLiE's are stylish and neat, and almost too good to wear to work!!"

— GEMMA GILL —
Nurse

"I love them.  I was super nervous getting them without having tried them on first, but they amazed me with how true to size they were.  My previous work shoes had gotten to the point where my knees were swelling at the end of each shift.  Not one sore knee since I have been wearing my FRANKiE4’s.  My feet feel supported, and comfortable even on the busiest of shifts.  To top it off, I have had so many comments and questions from people asking me about my nice shiny shoes!"

— JESS BRANCH —
Nurse

"The custom fit I think is so beneficial, a shoe that supports your foot exactly how it needs to be supported is so crucial in a profession where you’re on your feet for 12+hrs. Plus I love the fact that they’re such good quality, a friend of mine swears by FRANKiE4, she’s had her pair of ELLiE’s for over 2 years and they’re still going strong!"

— JESSICA FISHBURN —
Physiotherapist

"Love them! I think they are a great casual shoe, supportive and trendy. I do get lots of comments on them. The arch support as well as the mild heel lift. A lot of women chose fashion over comfort/good biomechanics and these are the two components most compromised I feel."

— EMMA ROGERS —
Podiatrist

"I LOVE THEM. They were comfortable from the moment I put them on. I will definitely be ordering myself another pair! The customisable foot beds are a wonderful feature. It gives a variety of fits all in the same shoe as well as allowing flexibility with orthotic fitting."

— JESSICA LUCAS —
Podiatrist

"I am in love with my ELLiE’s! I have a wide foot and wear orthotics which in the past has made it difficult finding anything comfortable and supportive (let alone looking good!) – but my ELLiE’s fit like a dream and they look so funky!"

— JESSIE MEIKLEJOHN —
Podiatrist

"The FRANKiE4 shoes would benefit my female clients with the arch support, adequate depth and width in the toe box and a removable foot bed to accommodate a custom orthotic"

— JODIE KERR —
Nurse

"I LOVE MY NATS! As soon as I put them on I could feel the difference in both fit and support compared to the majority of my shoe collection!"

— KATHERYN MCENTEGART —
Podiatrist

"I really like my FRANKiE4’s for work.  I can go all day without thinking I have sore feet.  I liked the adjustable foot beds so I could add to the forefoot of the shoe without bulking out the heel."

— KYLIE ENDRES —
Podiatrist

"I love my FRANKiE4s, I have been wearing them casually with jeans but think they will look great with shorts in the summer too. They are so comfortable and I can walk for hours."

— JESSIE NICHOLLS —
Nurse

"I absolutely love my FRANKiE4’s -  I have the navy blue ELLiE’s and I am absolutely obsessed with them. So comfortable and stylish! I can never go back!"

— LAURA BLACK —
Podiatrist

"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."

— LINDA RYAN —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 footwear includes key features that I educate patients on what is ‘adequate’ footwear. Majority of female patients I see are elderly, therefore require good stability, torsional control, firm heel counter, adequate fastenings and adequate height and depth in the toe box area. Further to this FRANKiE4 footwear contain different additions you can add to footbed to make them more custom for each person or room for full-customised orthotics if required."

— LIZ EDWARDS —
Podiatrist

"That they’re not only comfortable, supportive and orthotic friendly but FASHION FORWARD and STYLISH! There’s no compromise on style and comfort anymore! Love them – they fit my orthotics perfectly and add a little pizzazz to my work outfits! I recommend them to all my patients!"

— NAOMI ALEXANDER —
Nurse

"I am now obsessed with FRANKiE4 shoes!  I love my ELLiE's, it feels like I am walking on a cloud all day. They are too awesome to wear only to work, so I love I can wear them casual too with jeans. They are unbelievably light and comfortable, look great and have adjustable support for all feet."

— NATALIE STANLEY —
Podiatrist

"I Love my FRANKiE4 shoes they are so comfortable and stylish, they are great to wear not only to work but good for casual wear too! They provide comfort and support just what nurses need during a busy 12 hour shift!"

— LISA SAVILLE —
Nurse

"I have to be honest and say when I first put your shoes on I wasn't sure but a few days in my feet felt great. Good support throughout and my legs were less tired at the end of the day."

— NATASHA MERRICK —
Podiatrist

"I love my FRANKiE4s. I can wear them to work and then wear them on weekends too! I have a wide forefoot so sandals have always been hard for me to be comfortable in but with the FRANKiE4’s adjustable straps at the front they accommodate my wider foot well - hence why I also own multiple pairs of FRANKiE4 sandals!" 

— NICOLE PERIERA —
Physiotherapist

"I am just in love with these shoes! They not only look great but are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have owned! They have a very comfortable arch support and the inner sole feels like your walking on a cloud. I have no trouble wearing these shoes all day at work. Being a Physiotherapist I am on my feet always moving around – my feet are the last things I think of wearing these shoes, they don’t even tingle at the end of a long day like they used to after a long day on my feet."

— SALLY WILSON —
Physiotherapist

"LOVE my FRANKiE4 NATs. They are stylish, supportive and comfortable. They were given the ultimate test on the weekend, with an entire day walking around the city of Melbourne in all of its seasons (heat in the morning and pouring rain in the afternoon!). They held up beautifully or, more importantly, my feet inside held up beautifully! Very happy Road Tester!!"

— REBECCA HEALEY —

"The footbed system is amazing.  The fact that you can modify to fit your foot makes a huge difference.  LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!  I wear them every chance I get."

— REBECCA IRELAND —
Podiatrist

"They are comfortable and suit a range of outfits so they are also flexible in the wardrobe department. Additionally, they accommodate my orthotics well, so they enhance the therapeutic benefit of my devices."

— RUTH PAGE —
Physiotherapist

"I loved how comfortable & supportive the shoes were. I could wear them all day from the first day I put them on. I also loved that they look stylish & fun."

 

— SHAELY KLEMKE —
Physiotherapist

"As soon as I put them on, I felt immediate comfort and the perfect fit! Understandably enough, with my feet feeling properly supported, my back has felt so much better at the end of a hard and long day of work! I've received a lot of compliments about my stylish shoes which has been great – I tell them where to go!!"

 

— SHELLEY BROWN —
Nurse

"Amazing support and comfort. I’ve been a Registered nurse for 26 years and these are by far the best work shoes I’ve ever owned. They have been the only shoes I’ve worn since I received them, both at work and out of work. They are like walking on air and have given me back my life after suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for the past 6 months."

— TAMMY MILBORN —
Nurse

"I love my FRANKiE4s and get loads of compliments. They are cute and trendy, but also completely comfortable and suitable for a day running around the hospital."

— TANIA WELLS —
Nurse

"FRANKiE4 offer a great range to choose from for all shapes of feet, especially with the custom fitting system. I am a full-time radiation oncolody nurse in a very busy cancer centre and my feet are very grateful to these shoes."

— TEALA STEPHENS —
Physiotherapist

"I absolutely loved getting into the ELLiE’s – I now have them in black and silver. Prior to making the change to FRANKiE4 shoes I was struggling to get my work shoes to last 12 months, with the soles simply wearing out, and the body of the shoes stretching and losing shape. My new shoes are so much more solid, the support in them is sensational and I think they look great. My silver ones certainly get me noticed whenever I wear them and it’s so much fun being able to have a supportive pair of shoes that look so good for outside of work too. I’ve found them to be so versatile – walking kilometres in them with ease."

— SUSANNA DAVEY —
Podiatrist

"I would have to say, the ELLiE’s are the first pair of shoes I have had in years, that I can even wear without my orthotics and I have had no complications. I am known amongst my friends for always wearing “sensible shoes”, because there is a limited choice of shoes that satisfactorily fit my orthotics and provide the support that I need. It’s so nice to find a pair of sensible shoes that are feminine and stylish for younger people to wear."

— ASTRID CHAPMAN —
Nurse

"Not only do they look good (which is very rear for nursing shoes), they are of high quality and I no longer get back or knee pain during the shift, which is what I struggled with before I started wearing FRANKiE4."

— MELISSA CONNELL —
Podiatrist

"I love the way that the shoe can be adapted to suit a variety of different foot types - it is often difficult to find shoes that fit perfectly and the different inserts provided are a great way of achieving this. It is also nice to have shoes that are comfortable and stylish at the same time, something which a lot of my female patients would really appreciate."

 

— CHARLOTTE HYNDMAN —
Podiatrist

"Great support and cushioning in a shoe that can accommodate an orthotic that is also on trend and not ‘daggy’. I LOVE them. They are like wearing a slipper all day long!"

 

— ANNA YOUNG —
Podiatrist

"I love the functional footbeds! They provide heel & arch support as well as entire foot cushioning which is definitely the best asset for my patients. They have the orthotic friendly option which allows us to do even more with the shoes and improving foot function for our patients.

The custom fit option allows us to fit all different foot shapes and types, even when there are differences between the two feet! …oh and of course the fact that my patients actually love the style of shoes too really helps! It is so hard to find fashion shoes that are good for your feet to recommend to patients. That’s why I love the shoes so much as you get all the benefits in one shoe – it also improves patient compliance as they love the shoes that are on their feet!"

 

— KATE KING —
Physiotherapist

"So many of my female patients already rave about FRANKiE4 shoes because they’re stylish shoes that they can wear with so many outfits and yet are supportive for the feet and compliment orthotics. I love my FRANKiE4 shoes – I wear them to work every day as I’m always on my feet and they feel great. As a Mum I love being able to keep up with my active kids and still look stylish, instead of wearing running shoes."

— STEPH KASSOS —
Physiotherapist

"There are so many features of the FRANKiE4 design that I love. I have many patients who already wear custom orthotics and require a good supportive shoe that a) actually fits their orthotic and b) looks super stylish! I also have a number of patients who require good supportive shoes but don’t necessarily need a full custom orthotic, so FRANKiE4’s functional footbeds and customisable fit help to bridge that gap.

For such a long time there was nothing available on the market that met these criteria. Finally, we can get the best of both worlds – supreme comfort in a designer shoe!"

— CORRINA AITKEN —
Physiotherapist

"They provide maximum comfort with the innersole and accommodating shape whilst still being fashionable. I love the room in the toe box, and the support through the arch with the innersole."

— CHARMAINE BRADSHAW —
Podiatrist

"The custom fit system. It allows women with different shoe fitting requirements to wear fashionable, comfortable shoes. Having the choice of different insoles to explore what depth and width works best for each individual means less of a headache for myself and my patients."

— KATE MIDDLETON —
Podiatrist

"Being pregnant and experiencing the foot changes myself, my FRANKiE4s have been fantastic. They provide all day support to allow my feet to not get tired, they don’t rub and i'm not constantly thinking about my feet. They are also very easy to put on and take off which I think we all take for granted. Also, the custom fit insoles work well when you are having a swollen foot day! I love them."

— GRACE BYRNES —
Podiatrist

"Features of FRANKiE4 shoes which really benefit the female population are their thick and soft innersoles. So many women’s shoes don’t have removable innersoles and they don’t offer enough cushioning or shock absorption leaving our feet tired and sore by the end of the day. You can wear FRANKiE4 shoes all day in comfort and know you’re getting the right support too."

— MARIE CAMPBELL—
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 combines fashion with comfort in a supportive shoe (so in short, all of them!). All three features are hard to find but with the FRANKiE4 brand you know it will tick all three boxes. This gives my patients peace of mind and an easy brand to recommend as a clinician."

— MARY GRIFFIN—
Podiatrist

"They are lightweight, but hold there shape. The footbed is super comfortable and they look fantastic. Mine are really comfortable and are ideal for work as well as casual wear. The foot bed provides beautiful cushioning, but doesn't bulk up the shoe excessively."

— ALEX HUNT —
Physiotherapist

"FRANKiE4 shoes are stylish, supportive and are suitable for all foot types. The functional footbeds allow us to adjust the shoes for a custom fit for the individual. Many of my female patients already love their FRANKiE4 shoes! This helps with patient compliance - when patients love the shoes that are on their feet!"

— ANDREA FORREST —
Physiotherapist

"FRANKiE4 shoes are cushioned and supportive and making them comfortable to walk in. Wide footbeds to allow natural toe spreading and also functioning of the foot. Able to be customised with 4 different shoe inserts meaning everyone gets a perfect fit."

— LAUREN KEMP —
Podiatrist

"I have not had them off my feet since I received them! They are cushioned, comfortable and don't irritate my adducto-varus 4th toes! My patients commented that they liked them and asked where they could buy a pair!"

— LYNDA MILLER —
Physiotherapist

"One of the biggest problems I have with getting women to change their footwear is that the fashion/style of good footwear is not conducive to a nice outfit. Especially younger women. Their shoes need to look nice as well as being functional, and often the way they look far overrides how comfortable or good for them the shoes are. FRANKiE4 certainly have that issue covered. I also love the different insole options. It makes a massive difference knowing the shoe will fit them regardless of if they can try them on or not. It means your shoes can actually fit pretty much the entire range of foot types I see and still provide the support and comfort each of those types needs."

— LAURA ELLWOOD —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 offers a range of stylish fashionable shoes which are actually comfortable to wear. I like the wide toe box of the shoes which can help prevent forefoot deformities as mentioned above. The heel cup is deep enough to fit my orthotics, so no slipping out of the heel cup. The laces add support and comfort. The range of footbed insoles are also super comfortable which allow for different width feet to be fitted correctly."

— GABRIELLE MOORREES —
Physiotherapist

"I’ve been a FRANKiE4 fan since they started and very little is ever seen on my feet apart from this brand. My new FRANKiE4’s are super comfy and that new shoe feeling from them in my final weeks of my pregnancy has been great. I haven’t had any issues with swollen feet but I can imagine with all the ways you can modify your FRANKiE4’s, the same pair could see you comfortably and fashionably through your whole pregnancy."

— SAM PATTISON —
Nurse

"OMG!!! I love my FRANKiE4s….no other word for it, they have changed my shift working life. I no longer come home from a demanding shift with aching hips and knees because I am wearing the correct support on my feet. From the minute I opened the beautifully packaged boxed I knew my feet were in for a treat."

— PAIGE LORENSENE —
Physiotherapist

"I love that I can get to the end of a busy day on my feet and not be dying to take my shoes off! They are supportive yet stylish and so very comfortable. It's such a delight to find a pair of great work shoes that don't look like I borrowed them from my grandma!"

— HILARY BYRTH —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 has the combination of function and style. Functional Footbed that directs the foot and leg to function appropriately with cushioning and shock absorption. The Custom Fit system accommodates for different foot shapes and widths! The asymmetrical toe box reduces compression and squeezing of the forefoot preventing the formation of corns and callus."

— MICHAELA BARRON —
Podiatrist

"I wore them casually and could walk for hours. I felt supported in the shoes and once I got the right footbed in place I didn’t look back."

— RACHEL RAYSON —
Nurse

"I love, love them. It is sooo hard to find shoes that are comfy and last the distance of 12 hours on your feet. Plus they look great too. Not daggy like most nursing shoes."

— JEANETTE WHYTE —
Nurse

"They're amazing, they feel like butter on. The support is out of this world and so light weight which is a bonus when I am on my feet all day. The different inserts to accommodate different feet sizes is a very clever idea, makes the shoe fit to you and not the other way round."

— JANELLE MELLIS —
Nurse

"They were amazing, will definitely be buying these shoes in the future. I love the custom fit system as we all have different size feet and when we wear shoes for long hours we want them to fit our feet perfectly."

— TANITA MARSH —
Podiatrist

"My favourite feature is the removable and adjustable insoles. This allows people to customise the shoe to suit their foot type. I have loved my FRANKiE4 shoes, particularly because I can wear them with my orthotics."

— LUCY MCKINNON —
Podiatrist

"I love wearing my pair of ELLiE shoes. They fit snuggly on my feet and I feel happy because my feet are happy. I love how functional and comfortable they are to wear. And they are very fashionable. Ticks all the boxes."

— ANNA MILES —
Physiotherapist

"I love my FRANKiE4s, they are literally the only shoes I've ever owned that fit both feet (because of the different insole options). I will be taking them on holiday so I can wear great looking shoes, without ending up with aching sore feet."

— KATHRYN ZAMBONETTI —
Nurse

"I love my FRANKiE4’s. They are so comfy and my legs and feet don’t ache like they used to after wearing other shoes. I love that FRANKiE4 has created the perfect balance of practicality, comfort and fashion."

— ALISON FITZGERALD—
Podiatrist

"Stable, supportive with fastening mechanism yet still stylish. I LOVE them!"

— KATE SCHMIDT —
Podiatrist

"I am super happy with my FRANKiE4 shoes. I have worn them for work and casually and have found them to be extremely comfortable. Many friends have commented on how great they look too! Thank you for the opportunity. I feel even more satisfied when I refer a client for your shoes now, as I know first-hand how excellent they are."

— JADE HANNIGAN —
Nurse

"Patients and staff complimented the FRANKiE4's daily, one other staff member stopped me, pointed at my shoes and yelled out "YOU HAVE FRANKIES!!!"

The features I feel supported me were the arch support and heel support. As I have had previous knee surgeries and current back pain with my pregnancy the added support really has helped me to stand up straighter and my feet weren't burning by the time I got home!"

— KATE MORAN —
Nurse

"I love my FRANKiE4's and have worn them to work every day since I received them! Being pregnant in my last trimester with feet and ankles that would swell by lunchtime, and an 18 month old to run around after when I got home, I can't say how much I appreciated having comfortable shoes at work. It's like walking on pillows compared to my other shoes that don't provide much (or any!) support."

— KELSEY BANKS —
Nurse

"I’ve been wearing very disposable and cheap shoes for a while, I like the sturdiness of my ELLiE sneakers.  I love the tough leather exterior that can be easily cleaned and will last a long time."

— EMILY COWLING —
Physiotherapist

"I really like the cushioning feel of the sole and of course the supportive arch. The angled toe is a nice design feature. I was happy with my choice of silver as it goes with everything!"

— MEL ROCKCLIFF —
Nurse

"Absolutely love them!! I went and brought another pair to wear as casual shoes. They will definitely be my go to work shoes now.  I love the different foot beds they offer. They suit everyone’s different feet and provide all day comfort."

— ANNA HORN —
Podiatrist

"I think that all my female patients could benefit from FRANKiE4 shoes, I especially love the shoes that provide you with a fully covered, leather shoe that is stylish, lightweight and has a super cushioned foot bed for all day comfort. The fact they are orthotic friendly is a bonus of course. "

— ALICE LYTTON —
Physiotherapist

"Love my FRANKiE4.... very comfortable - especially when I’m on my feet doing 14 hour days....whilst still looking good."

— ANNIE KU THOMPSON —
Physiotherapist

"I loved the look of them. The customisable inserts are a great idea and they are great quality."

— CHARLOTTE HYNDMAN —
Podiatrist

"Great support and cushioning in a shoe that can accommodate an orthotic that is also on trend and not ‘daggy’. I LOVE them. They are like wearing a slipper all day long!"

 

— STEPH KASSOS —
Physiotherapist

"There are so many features of the FRANKiE4 design that I love. I have many patients who already wear custom orthotics and require a good supportive shoe that a) actually fits their orthotic and b) looks super stylish! I also have a number of patients who require good supportive shoes but don’t necessarily need a full custom orthotic, so FRANKiE4’s functional footbeds and customisable fit help to bridge that gap.

For such a long time there was nothing available on the market that met these criteria. Finally, we can get the best of both worlds – supreme comfort in a designer shoe!"

— KATE SCRIDENER —
Physiotherapist

"For patients having a stable base of support is really important when learning to stand or walk again. But more importantly having a shoe that offers support but also looks cool is fantastic! Why should people with a disability have to wear old fashioned shoes? I think it’s great that there is a fashionable but supportive option."

— BARBARA POWELL —
Podiatrist

"I love the look, certainly brighten up my boring scrubs, very comfortable, I spend one day a week walking around the wards and so far so good. I love the design of the footbed, arch support and cushioning properties, and the ability to semi customise."

— STEPHANIE PATTERSON —
Physiotherapist

"I currently have plantar fasciitis in my right foot.  This is following significant ankle instability from ankle injuries. I have been wearing unsupportive shoes to walk the dog too often eg converse which have absolutely no cushioning or support. Wearing the Frankie4 has made a massive improvement in this. A massive revelation to me was that they did not need “wearing in", like so many other shoes that often cause blisters initially etc."

— STEPH PULMAN —
Physiotherapist

"My FRANKiE4 ELLiEs are brand new and my feet have not skipped a beat wearing them. No blisters and my feet feel amazing after running up and downstairs across the hospital all day. That is a big ask for a new pair of shoes."

— AMANDA HENDY —
Nurse

"Love them! Have had lots of comments with the silver work shoes and my feet also say thank you! I love the unique design, comfortable supportive footbed and even though I’ve worn mine lots they still look brand new so they wear well."

— NATASHA WEAVER —
Physiotherapist

"For the many conditions in adolescents, I provide advice about supportive footwear. My go-to checklist includes a soft heel pad with a firm heel cup and medial arch support. This was previously so hard to 'sell' because teenagers want to wear fashionable shoes which usually have very poor support. I am so glad to have found FRANKiE4's and be able to suggest the best of both worlds."

— NAT JEFFREYS —
Nurse

"These are simply the most impressive shoes on the market. Every nurse wants to look stylish and fashionable, even if you’re wearing bright red scrubs- like me. FRANKiE4 can provide that. Every nurse needs comfort, all day comfort - FRANKiE4 can provide that too. Now let’s talk practicality, leather, black, wipe them clean, no stains, no germs, no problem!"

— TEGAN ELLIOT —
Nurse

"I have been carrying on to everyone about my FRANKiE4’s since I received them, I just love them so much! They’re the first pair of work shoes that have transitioned to use outside of the hospital, they look fabulous! Most importantly however, after some long hard shifts (plus being 6 months pregnant) my feet aren’t sore and that is why I’ll be returning every year for another pair!"

— KYM ELLIS —
Podiatrist

"Words cannot describe how amazing it is to be able to put them on and walk all day in comfort. The incredibly cushioned arch support is so beneficial to my female patients"

— SALLY WALLACE —
Nurse

"The features of FRANKiE4 that suit Nursing are the comfortable and adjustable soles, arch support and also the fun colours and styles for all tastes! I chose the ELLiE's in Navy, they are very comfortable (particularly as I have high arches), easy to care for (the Navy colour covers many spills!) and a joy to step into at the beginning of the work day!"

— CASEY HELMORE —
Physiotherapist

"A big part of people getting better is being able to unload the injured area. Given that FRANKiE4 have multiple inserts for the perfect fit means that the injury can be unloaded to some extent even when you have to be on your feet. Sometimes with the mention of orthotics people cringe because they picture big chunky shoes to try and fit them into, but when I show them FRANKiE4's they are immediately more interested!"

— NGAN HARWOOD —
Podiatrist

"The supportive inner soles with additions to alter the shoes depth is a great feature as it makes it easier for patients to fit orthotics. The wide non-tapered forefoot would benefit most female patients as it replicates the natural shape of the foot. I love my ELLiE's! They felt comfortable from the get-go and I managed to walk around the streets of Berlin without any hassles."

— JESSICA WILLIAMS —
Nurse

"I loved the comfort and style! I work in a couple of areas which either has me running around or standing in the one spot for hours and I have found that FRANKiE4 are the best shoes for my situation! Best thing is, they look so good compared to other supportive shoes. I would honestly suggest these shoes to anyone who has to work on their feet all day such as retail workers, salespeople, Drs, Physiotherapist etc."

— JASMINE KOUCH —
Podiatrist

"I have been wearing my FRANKiE4’s for work and professional functions. My feet generally have a wider toebox and so I was concerned that it would not fit into the shoes but I was very pleasantly surprised! They have been great for wearing all day."

— PRISCILLA TAIT —
Physiotherapist

"Often we talk about a comfortable supportive shoe with patients but often patients find these shoes come with a lack of style. FRANKiE4 shoes offer on-trend styles paired with comfort and support. I love my FRANKiE4 NAT’s in cream. They go with everything from shorts to dresses and are super comfortable."  

— KATE HILLIER —
Podiatrist

"The firm heel counter, firm shank and spacious width and depth in the forefoot tick a lot of boxes in regards to footwear features that benefit most female patients. However I particularly love the removable innersoles that allow an orthotic to slide straight in for that additional support that so many feet require. I love wearing my FRANKiE4 shoes, finally there are stylish shoes
I can wear my orthotics in that allows my feet to be comfortable all day long! "

— JULIE O'DONOGHUE —
NURSE

"Obviously we are all different but the custom fit footbeds make the shoe adaptable to suit any foot. The shoes have leather uppers and the cushioning and support along with the weight of the shoe would be a huge plus for any nurse on his/her feet all day."

— MARNI PYLE —
Podiatrist

"I really love my Frankie's! The leather is beautiful and soft and I love the combination of style and support in the NAT's I chose. I can wear them all day comfortably, even without my orthotics in them. I have worn them on days when I have done a lot of walking and have had great comfort all day. Very happy with them, I have already been recommending them everyone!"

— AMY MCCLELLAND —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 meets the stylish profile most of my patients are looking for whilst still providing the important structures in a shoe that I look for as a Podiatrist. This is often a difficult meeting point for myself and my patients. It’s fantastic to be able to tell my patients to look at the FRANKiE4 range and find we are both happy."

— ASHLEIGH MOORE —
Podiatrist

"My female patients can most definitely benefit from the cushioned footbed which help reduce stress and strain therefore reducing corn / callous build up, great support and the well thought out toe box which is like no other reducing pressure and irritation on the toes."

— HEIDI CHIN —
Podiatrist

"The FRANKiE4 shoes have deep heel cup. By having an increased depth of the shoe, you are able to slip in your custom orthotics in with ease and comfort with no risk of you ‘stepping out’ of your shoe. The customisable width allows you to comfortably accommodate for a broad forefoot- especially in the case of bunions.
Anatomically shaped toe box reduces the cramping of toes, a common culprit for nerve conditions and corns between toes. The firm heel counter increases stability of the ankle."

— RACHEL OLLINGTON —
Podiatrist

"These shoes are both functional, comfortable and very good looking! A combination which in the past has been impossible to find. Many women put up with sore feet and foot issues so they can continue to wear pretty shoes but FRANKiE4’s eliminate this conundrum! I love how you can customise the shoe to fit the foot width."

— AMY HOLMES —
Nurse

"I think that these shoes are appealing to wear as they look good, they have a modern feel. They can be cleaned, and come in a variety of colours. One pair for work, one pair for weekends. As many people have already said, from the moment you put these lovelies on, you can feel the support and comfort. I really love these shoes, and I'm planning to buy many more pairs."

— ANNE MAREE HANRICK —
Podiatrist

"A good heel counter, supportive insole and ability to customise fit, in a stylish shoe, assists women in achieving better foot health on many levels.  Patient compliance is much more achievable when you show the ladies a FRANKiE4."

— CAROLINE WILSON —
Podiatrist

"I have quite the wide foot and the ELLiEs have been so easy to wear all day, from day one! The insole is great as well as the appropriate sized toe box and the ribbon laces get a lot of complements!"

— CHLOE TAIFALOS —
Nurse

"Pacing up and down the wards was like walking on clouds and they are so easy to take on and off which is important for me when working with babies on the ground. The customisable inserts make it ideal for patient-specific issues…I think the added bonus of not looking like ‘nanna shoes’ makes in an easier sell to those teenage girls too!"

— COURTNEY PERRETT —
Podiatrist

"The cushioning and support in the footbed is a big win as well as the option to use to ¾ innersole is also brilliant for those with bunions or a wide forefoot.  There is also the option to remove the footbed and use their own orthotic and the FRANKiE4’s are the absolute perfect base for all orthotics."

— DENIKKA GREAVES —
Podiatrist

"I LOVE FRANKiE4 footwear, they’re so comfortable, fashionable (which is of course important to women) and easy to wear!"

— ELLEN SAMPSON —
Nurse

"I love my FRANKiE4s, they are both trendy and comfortable. I am not having to panadol for aching legs at night on my working days."

— ELYSIA ANDREWS —
Podiatrist

"I love my FRANKiE4's! For a long time I have searched for a pair of smart casual shoes that look good but can accommodate my orthotics and FRANKiE4 does just that. The photo I have included is of me and my FRANKiE4s on our latest holiday to Hawaii! They enabled me to do so much walking on my holiday whilst secretly wearing my orthotics and kept my feet feeling great!"

— EMMA MUNRO —
Nurse

"My FRANKiE4s are great like no other nursing shoe I've tried, and believe me after 23 years of nursing it's a treat for my feet.  My ELLiE's are stylish and neat, and almost too good to wear to work!!"

— EMMA ROGERS —
Podiatrist

"I LOVE THEM. They were comfortable from the moment I put them on. I will definitely be ordering myself another pair! The customisable footbeds are a wonderful feature. It gives a variety of fits all in the same shoe as well as allowing flexibility with orthotic fitting."

— GEMMA GILL —
Nurse

"I love them.  I was super nervous getting them without having tried them on first, but they amazed me with how true to size they were.  My previous work shoes had gotten to the point where my knees were swelling at the end of each shift.  Not one sore knee since I have been wearing my FRANKiE4’s.  My feet feel supported, and comfortable even on the busiest of shifts.  To top it off, I have had so many comments and questions from people asking me about my nice shiny shoes!"

— JENNA MOONEY —
Physiotherapist

"I LOVE my NATs. They are perfect with a range of outfits and are so comfortable and supportive. I am currently pregnant, with my first child, have really noticed the different stresses on my body - the cushioning and support in my Nat shoes makes all the difference to long days on my feet!! I can’t wait to try more of the FRANKiE4 range!"

— MEGAN BRITTAIN —
Nurse

"The features specifically helpful for nurses and midwives is the range of options, excellent support, the insoles so the shoe fits the minor differences between each foot for maximum comfort. I love my FRANKiE4 and would and never do now wear anything else."

— LIZ EDWARDS —
Podiatrist

"That they’re not only comfortable, supportive and orthotic friendly but FASHION FORWARD and STYLISH! There’s no compromise on style and comfort anymore! Love them – they fit my orthotics perfectly and add a little pizzazz to my work outfits! I recommend them to all my patients!"

— LISA SAVILLE —
Nurse

"I have to be honest and say when I first put your shoes on I wasn't sure but a few days in my feet felt great. Good support throughout and my legs were less tired at the end of the day."

— LINDA RYAN —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 footwear includes key features that I educate patients on what is ‘adequate’ footwear. Majority of female patients I see are elderly, therefore require good stability, torsional control, firm heel counter, adequate fastenings and adequate height and depth in the toe box area. Further to this, FRANKiE4 footwear contain different additions you can add to footbed to make them more custom for each person or room for full-customised orthotics if required."

— LAURA BLACK —
Podiatrist

"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."

— KYLIE ENDRES —
Podiatrist

"I love my FRANKiE4s, I have been wearing them casually with jeans but think they will look great with shorts in the summer too. They are so comfortable and I can walk for hours."

— KATHERYN MCENTEGART —
Podiatrist

"I really like my FRANKiE4’s for work. I can go all day without thinking I have sore feet. I liked the adjustable foot beds so I could add to the forefoot of the shoe without bulking out the heel."

— JODIE KERR —
Nurse

"I LOVE MY NATS! As soon as I put them on I could feel the difference in both fit and support compared to the majority of my shoe collection!"

— JESSIE NICHOLLS —
Nurse

"I absolutely love my FRANKiE4’s -  I have the navy blue ELLiE’s and I am absolutely obsessed with them. So comfortable and stylish! I can never go back!"

— JESSIE MEIKLEJOHN —
Podiatrist

"The FRANKiE4 shoes would benefit my female clients with the arch support, adequate depth and width in the toe box and a removable footbed to accommodate a custom orthotic"

— JESSICA LUCAS —
Podiatrist

"I am in love with my ELLiE’s! I have a wide foot and wear orthotics which in the past has made it difficult finding anything comfortable and supportive (let alone looking good!) – but my ELLiE’s fit like a dream and they look so funky!"

— JESSICA FISHBURN —
Physiotherapist

"Love them! I think they are a great casual shoe, supportive and trendy. I do get lots of comments on them. The arch supports as well as the mild heel lift. A lot of women chose fashion over comfort/good biomechanics and these are the two components most compromised I feel."

— JESS BRANCH —
Nurse

"The custom fit I think is so beneficial, a shoe that supports your foot exactly how it needs to be supported is so crucial in a profession where you’re on your feet for 12+hrs. Plus I love the fact that they’re such good quality, a friend of mine swears by FRANKiE4, she’s had her pair of ELLiE’s for over 2 years and they’re still going strong!"

— SALLY WILSON —
Physiotherapist

"LOVE my FRANKiE4 NATs. They are stylish, supportive and comfortable. They were given the ultimate test on the weekend, with an entire day walking around the city of Melbourne in all of its seasons (heat in the morning and pouring rain in the afternoon!). They held up beautifully or, more importantly, my feet inside held up beautifully! Very happy Road Tester!!"

— RUTH PAGE —
Physiotherapist

"I loved how comfortable & supportive the shoes were. I could wear them all day from the first day I put them on. I also loved that they look stylish & fun."

 

— MICHELLE PEARSON —
Podiatrist

"I Love FRANKiE4! I wear them everyday at work and they are my go to weekend shoe for dress and casual."

"They are comfortable and suit a range of outfits so they are also flexible in the wardrobe department. Additionally, they accommodate my orthotics well, so they enhance the therapeutic benefit of my devices."

"I am now obsessed with FRANKiE4 shoes!  I love my ELLiE's, it feels like I am walking on a cloud all day. They are too awesome to wear only to work, so I love I can wear them casual too with jeans. They are unbelievably light and comfortable, look great and have adjustable support for all feet."

— REBECCA HEALEY —
Podiatrist

"The footbed system is amazing. The fact that you can modify to fit your foot makes a huge difference. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! I wear them every chance I get."

— NICOLE PERIERA —
Physiotherapist

"I am just in love with these shoes! They not only look great but are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have owned! They have a very comfortable arch support and the inner sole feels like your walking on a cloud. I have no trouble wearing these shoes all day at work. Being a Physiotherapist I am on my feet always moving around – my feet are the last things I think of wearing these shoes, they don’t even tingle at the end of a long day like they used to after a long day on my feet."

— NATASHA MERRICK —
Podiatrist

"I love my FRANKiE4s. I can wear them to work and then wear them on weekends too! I have a wide forefoot so sandals have always been hard for me to be comfortable in but with the FRANKiE4’s adjustable straps at the front they accommodate my wider foot well -hence why I also own multiple pairs of FRANKiE4 sandals!" 

— NATALIE STANLEY —
Podiatrist

"I Love my FRANKiE4 shoes they are so comfortable and stylish, they are great to wear not only to work but good for casual wear too! They provide comfort and support just what nurses need during a busy 12 hour shift!"

— SHAELY KLEMKE —
Physiotherapist

"As soon as I put them on, I felt immediate comfort and the perfect fit! Understandably enough, with my feet feeling properly supported, my back has felt so much better at the end of a hard and long day of work! I've received a lot of compliments about my stylish shoes which has been great – I tell them where to go!!"

 

— SHELLEY BROWN —
Nurse

"Amazing support and comfort. I’ve been a Registered nurse for 26 years and these are by far the best work shoes I’ve ever owned. They have been the only shoes I’ve worn since I received them, both at work and out of work. They are like walking on air and have given me back my life after suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for the past 6 months."

— SUSANNA DAVEY —
Podiatrist

"I would have to say, the ELLiE’s are the first pair of shoes I have had in years, that I can even wear without my orthotics and I have had no complications. I am known amongst my friends for always wearing “sensible shoes”, because there is a limited choice of shoes that satisfactorily fit my orthotics and provide the support that I need. It’s so nice to find a pair of sensible shoes that are feminine and stylish for younger people to wear."

— TAMMY MILBORN —
Nurse

"I love my FRANKiE4s and get loads of compliments. They are cute and trendy, but also completely comfortable and suitable for a day running around the hospital."

— TANIA WELLS —
Nurse

"FRANKiE4 offer a great range to choose from for all shapes of feet, especially with the custom fitting system. I am a full-time radiation oncolody nurse in a very busy cancer centre and my feet are very grateful to these shoes."

— TEALA STEPHENS —
Physiotherapist

"I absolutely loved getting into the ELLiE’s – I now have them in black and silver. Prior to making the change to FRANKiE4 shoes I was struggling to get my work shoes to last 12 months, with the soles simply wearing out, and the body of the shoes stretching and losing shape. My new shoes are so much more solid, the support in them is sensational and I think they look great. My silver ones certainly get me noticed whenever I wear them and it’s so much fun being able to have a supportive pair of shoes that look so good for outside of work too. I’ve found them to be so versatile – walking kilometres in them with ease."

— ASTRID CHAPMAN —
Nurse

"Not only do they look good (which is very rear for nursing shoes), they are of high quality and I no longer get back or knee pain during the shift, which is what I struggled with before I started wearing FRANKiE4."

— MELISSA CONNELL —
Podiatrist

"I love the way that the shoe can be adapted to suit a variety of different foot types - it is often difficult to find shoes that fit perfectly and the different inserts provided are a great way of achieving this. It is also nice to have shoes that are comfortable and stylish at the same time, something which a lot of my female patients would really appreciate."

 

— JEANETTE WHYTE —
Nurse

"They're amazing, they feel like butter on. The support is out of this world and so light weight which is a bonus when I am on my feet all day. The different inserts to accommodate different feet sizes is a very clever idea, makes the shoe fit to you and not the other way round."

— PAIGE LORENSENE —
Physiotherapist

"I love that I can get to the end of a busy day on my feet and not be dying to take my shoes off! They are supportive yet stylish and so very comfortable. It's such a delight to find a pair of great work shoes that don't look like I borrowed them from my grandma!"

— SAM PATTISON —
Nurse

"OMG!!! I love my FRANKiE4s….no other word for it, they have changed my shift working life. I no longer come home from a demanding shift with aching hips and knees because I am wearing the correct support on my feet. Thanks FRANKiE4 for my life changing ELLiE's!!! From the minute I opened the beautifully packaged boxed I knew my feet were in for a treat."

— LAUREN KEMP —
Podiatrist

"I have not had them off my feet since I received them! They are cushioned, comfortable and don't irritate my adducto-varus 4th toes! My patients commented that they liked them and asked where they could buy a pair!"

 

— LYNDA MILLER —
Physiotherapist

"One of the biggest problems I have with getting women to change their footwear is that the fashion/style of good footwear is not conducive to a nice outfit. Especially younger women. Their shoes need to look nice as well as being functional, and often the way they look far overrides how comfortable or good for them the shoes are. FRANKiE4 certainly have that issue covered. I also love the different insole options. It makes a massive difference knowing the shoe will fit them regardless of if they can try them on or not. It means your shoes can actually fit pretty much the entire range of foot types I see and still provide the support and comfort each of those types needs."

— LAURA ELLWOOD —
Podiatrist

"FRANKiE4 offers a range of stylish fashionable shoes which are actually comfortable to wear. I like the wide toe box of the shoes which can help prevent forefoot deformities as mentioned above. The heel cup is deep enough to fit my orthotics, so no slipping out of the heel cup. The laces add support and comfort. The range of footbed insoles are also super comfortable which allow for different width feet to be fitted correctly."
