Feet function optimally when positioned naturally. We have developed a certification system, through which we evaluate shoes for their foot-healthy qualities.
Our feet are designed perfectly. With 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments we can flex, rebound, and absorb shock naturally, throughout many activities. Therefore, we recommend shoes that allow your feet to function naturally. Many manufacturers add features that can hinder our feet and toe alignment. Below are important features to consider when looking to purchase healthy shoes.
Glerups | 5

This men's and women's casual slipper has a natural, foot-shaped design. It is lightweight, with a thin, flexible sole and no artificial arch support.
  1. Weight | 5.5 oz [W10]
  2. Stack Height | 13.5 mm
  3. No Artificial Arch Support
  4. No Motion Control
 
We recommend shoes that are flat from the heel to the ends of the toes. This means that you want to purchase shoes that do not have elevated heels or toe spring (a feature that lifts the ends of the toes higher than the ball of the foot).
Glerups | 5

This is an excellent shoe because it is completely flat (heel to toe), possesses no heel elevation, and has zero toe spring.
We recommend shoes that are widest at the ends of the toes (like a baby’s shoe), not at the ball of the foot. This shape allows for natural toe splay, and will not compress your toes into a deformed position.
Men's Glerups | 5

This shoe offers excellent width, which allows for natural toe splay and can accommodate Correct Toes for most people. Consider lightly testing with Correct Toes to ensure comfort. 
 
Women's Glerups | 5

The Women's Glerups are also wide and offer natural toe splay. They can accommodate Correct Toes for most people. Be sure to lightly test with Correct Toes to ensure comfort. 
  
 
Natural feet are widest at the tips of the toes, not at the ball of the foot. Correct Toes helps place the toes back into their natural alignment. To make sure your shoe is wide enough to accommodate natural toe splay, remove the shoe liner from the shoe and stand on it while wearing Correct Toes. If your foot stays within the margins of the liner, this indicates a foot-healthy shoe. If your foot spills over the shoe liner considerably, then this shoe may be too narrow and could cause adverse effects.
Men's Glerups  | 5 

The Glerups do not possess a removable shoe liner, so we recommend turning over the shoe opposite your foot and standing on the bottom to compare the imprint (left shoe bottom for the right foot and right shoe bottom for the left foot). The man's toes fit within the width of the shoe. Therefore, the use of Correct Toes with this slipper would be beneficial.
Women's Glerups  | 5 

Like the Men's version, the Women's Glerups do not possess a removable shoe liner. We recommend turning over the shoe opposite your foot and standing on the bottom to compare the imprint (left shoe bottom for the right foot and right shoe bottom for the left foot). The woman's toes do not extend beyond the liner, so we approve the use of Correct Toes with this slipper. 



This shoe meets all of our foot-healthy criteria, and works well with Correct Toes for most people.
Unlike other companies that recommend “supportive” shoes, which can act like a cast, we recommend shoes that allow natural movement and articulation of your foot bones. We test each shoe for flexibility within each point of flexion and extension.
Glerups | 5

The Glerups slipper is very flexible, offering great pliability and flexion throughout all test points. This allows the foot to move naturally, promoting healthy feet and ankles. 

Points of Flexion and Extension
  1. Material
   2. Heel Counter
  3. Arch
  4. Ball
  5. Ends of Toes
 
Glerups are a foot-healthy, natural-shaped slipper that can be used indoor and outdoor. They are made of a lightweight and breathable wool, which keep your feet dry and warm. Also, they can be ordered with a leather or rubber sole. These slippers allow your feet to move as nature intended. Thank you, Glerups, for providing us these healthy slippers to review.
