Each of these components of a FRANKiE4 shoe has been designed by Caroline. Often her husband will have input, he too is a Podiatrist.
With body mechanics in mind, the designs of each of these components are aimed to alleviate and prevent foot pain all without the look of a chunky orthopedic shoe. Her designs keep the shoes slimline, light and on trend. Beautiful leather and leather lining are the cherry on top!
