Message from our founder Mike Woolf
I started Meanfeet after many years working in the comfort footwear industry. I found time and again that customers such as yourselves were being neglected on the high street; did you know that an estimated one million people in the UK alone suffer from painful bunions, yet according to recent research around 90% of those people are still looking for footwear solutions that are durable, comfortable and stylish?
Achieving this outcome became my goal, and out of this passion for unique customer focused solutions came the meanfeet website. Our primary ambition is to deliver footwear solutions to you, members of the one million neglected and deserving customers; please spread the word and help us help you!
Whether you suffer from bunions, diabetes, or a range of orthopaedic needs, we have the expertise and range of footwear to suit you.
We pride ourselves on our ability to accommodate a wide range of customer needs. Our extensive contacts within the podiatry and chiropody community mean that even if we can’t solve your footwear needs immediately, we make it our top priority to source information and products which help deliver a comfortable and affordable footwear solution.
WHAT IS A BUNION?
A bunion (hallux valgus) is a deformity characterized by lateral deviation of the big toe. As the big toe (hallux) turns in toward the second toe (angulation) the tissues surrounding the joint may become swollen and tender. Bunions tend to affect women more than men as they usually develop as a result of ill fitting footwear, typically shoes which are too narrow and concentrate the weight over the toes (high heels in other words!)
