A step towards good health
ErgoMove shoes are part of a complete concept that is supplemented by individual orthopedic orthoses and special stockings. This perfectly co-ordinated concept optimally fulfills the demands of sensitive feet. ErgoMove shoes combine uncompromising functional properties and timeless design – both men and women will be proud to be seen in ErgoMove shoes!
- ErgoMove shoes are part of a complete concept for sensitive feet (for example in the case of diabetes or rheumatism)
- Comfortable and chic
- Easily adjusted for additional orthopedic shoe inserts
Taking a healthy step
Every foot is different and they change throughout life. Thanks to numerous functional details, ErgoMove shoes optimally adapt to the special needs of sensitive feet: there is plenty of room inside the shoe, even for wide or swollen feet. Cushioning and the seam-free lining reduce the risk of pressure points. The prefabricated insole can be replaced at any time by an individual orthopedic soft foam orthosis.
Designs and uses
The ErgoMove range includes loafer-style shoes and ankle-boots in women's and men's designs. Their timeless design combined with the color range mean that these shoes are a stylish accessory for any occasion. The models are suitable for the changes in foot shape that occur in the case of rheumatism and where there is a slight or moderate swelling of the feet. The comfort shoes can also be used as a precautionary measure by people with diabetic foot syndrome (risk classes 0 to 2).
Available from your medical retailer
To ensure that all your needs are taken care of, you can find ErgoMove shoes at your nearest medical retailer or orthopedic shoe technician. He will take all the necessary measurements of the foot and diagnose the status of the foot using digital measurement technology/imprint foam/blueprint/physical examination. Then he will help you find the right model for you.
- Comfort shoe in high-quality materials
- Generously sized, seam-free linings (durable textile) and removable prefabricated insole
General construction of the shoe
1) Seam-free lining with cushioning:
The durable textile lining provides a soft cushion for the foot and ensures pleasant foot conditions.
2) Fully cushioned tongue:
The cushioning of the tongue reduces the pressure on the instep.
3) Uppers made of premium-quality, supple calfskin:
The shoe molds itself to the shape of your foot for a really comfortable fit.
4) No edges round the toe cap:
This protects the toes from impact with no detrimental effect on the toes.
5) Deliberate avoidance of seams:
This reduces the risk of pressure in pressure-sensitive areas of the foot.
6) Cushioned upper edges:
The sensitive ankle area is gently enclosed.
7) Comfortable toe area designed to fit the foot:
This prevents pressure peaks and allows the forefoot great freedom of movement.
7) PU sole:
The shoe has a particularly soft sole for a cushioned and safe feel when walking.
7) Molded, extended heel counter:
This stabilizes and guides the hindfoot.
- Suitable for everyday and leisure use by people with foot problems (e.g. rheumatoid foot deformities or diabetic foot syndrome (risk classes 0 and 2))
- High-quality and durable materials mean that the shoes remain serviceable even after prolonged use – but this does fundamentally depend on the usage
- We recommend that their functional properties are checked regularly (at least every 6 months)
- Clean the uppers regularly and treat them with normal leather-care products and waterproofing sprays to keep your shoes supple and smart
- Air out after use (remove foot orthoses) and dry if necessary (away from direct heat!)
- Use soft shoe trees
Modification instructions - Specific information for medical retailers
- Shoes must be at least 1 cm longer than the foot (measure while standing!)

- Deformities of the foot with tendency to slight or moderate swelling
