Did you know that the human foot has the potential to take us from infancy to the end of our lives - without any accompanying foot problems? But to do so, the foot must exist in a totally free, unrestricted environment. Our natural state is to walk barefoot on open undulating terrain where the space around the foot is infinite. Because of this, 95% of all foot problems originate as a direct result of the use of improper and illfitting footwear, which damages the foot in both the short and long term and makes it dysfunctional. And while the extremes of temperature and the hard, flat surfaces of the modern world call for foot covering and protection, the foot must be allowed to perform its natural work in a shoe as if it were barefoot to stay healthy.

I never had a better pair of shoes that fit my feet and their issues in my life. The shoes last forever, almost, but I always find a new pair I want to add to my collection. I continue to walk pain free and happy- thank you Goodhart staff.....see you soon-

Foot health

is well within the grasp of all of us to understand and fully integrate into our lives. The definition of foot health is a simple one. Foot health is the ability of your feet to perform the natural, human activity of walking, day after day, year after year asymptomatically, that is, without any pain or problems at all. To accomplish this in a paved world, the shoe must be as neutral of an environment as possible to allow the foot to work in its most natural, barefoot state. The shoe must “float” on the foot.

Goodhart's Euro-Pedorthics

is the essential link in the recovery of the foot and the treatment/management of foot disorders. Through research, our 108-year facility has discovered the key to foot health and unlocked that door for America. We have a 100% success rate in the resolution of plantar fasciitis, for example. This is a success rate that is unheard of in any health care facility in this country. In the Greater Kansas City Area, we work closely with many wonderful physicians who refer their problem feet to us and allow us to help their patients back to the world of walking. They call me the Shoe-ru.
