This may beg the question…

Why do my feet hurt?

Well, injury, overuse, or conditions causing inflammation that involve any of the bones, ligaments or tendons in your foot can cause foot pain.

Arthritis is also another common cause of foot pain, as well as injury to your nerves which may result in intense burning pain, numbness or a tingling feeling.

At Rieker, our ladies’ shoes are designed and crafted with our signature antistress and antishock technology in order to provide optimum shock absorption on various surfaces. The maximum reflexibility and a flexible design that allows space for feet to expand during the day, which is all great news for sore feet. 

Comfy shoes for hiking 

Whether you’re searching for walking shoes for short weekend strolls and dog walks, or the best hiking shoes for more challenging adventures, we’ve got a broad selection to suit every terrain and season. 

Our boots are the best choice for more demanding long-distance walks, even on relatively uneven terrain, and are unlikely to let you down over hundreds of miles. Their robust and well-crafted fabric upper benefits from a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex liner, while their well-fitting structure offers good support across the whole foot.

If you’re looking for a lighter weather alternative then our walking sandals make a great choice as their thermoplastic elastomer sole offers comfort, stability and support. This means you can enjoy the outside for hours on end without worrying about pain in your feet.

Some of you may prefer to opt for a trainer, as they are lighter, cooler, and quicker to dry. Wonderful for all weathers, ethylene vinyl acetate soles have special shock-absorbing properties. This is a light and qualitative elastic material that provides premium cushioning which means less impact on your joints and feet.

Comfy shoes for work

Whether you work in an office or spend hours on your feet we’ve got a range of comfy shoes for work. Providing both style and comfort our ladies’ shoes provide the same level of support as our trainers do whilst fashionably matching almost any outfit and occasion.

Perfect for the office, our Mary Jane style ladies’ shoes are famous for their elegant closed-toe design finish with single or multiple straps across the top of your foot. This keeps your foot secure without shifting backwards and forwards putting pressure on your feet. Crafted from the softest leather upper material you won’t suffer from any rubbing or sore patches. 

Our ladies’ loafers are fabulous for those on their feet all day as their raised sole molds to the contours of your feet. Since the arch support is more contorted to your foot, you help eliminate the primary pressure points which are usually on the heel and ball of the foot.
