FRANKiE4 has released its AW19 collection, featuring boots high and low, brogues and monk straps, flatforms, and cool kicks in fashionable styles and colours. But it is what is inside that counts; FRANKiE4’s hidden foot support and cushioning has this label providing women with a healthier option for on-trend footwear.

Founded by Podiatrist Caroline McCulloch, a Podiatrist and Physiotherapist, FRANKiE4 continues to innovate the way footwear is designed. With body mechanics in mind, the designs aim to alleviate and prevent heel and arch pain, plantar fasciitis, and forefoot pain. Patented fitting packs featured on many styles also enable women with wider feet or bunions to dodge ghastly ‘wide fitting’ footwear.

Starting from the top of this winters collection the FRANKiE4 high heeled boots, boasting a 90 millimetre heel with a hidden nine millimetres of forefoot cushion, a clever feature in FRANKiE4’s RUTH and NAOMi styles. Mid and flat boot offerings give some winter staple options with a selection of heels remain in the range in fresh new colour updates all with specialised hidden footbeds that do make you feel you are defying gravity.

Preppy brogues and monk strap styles are new to the collection too. These styles add to the variety of ‘go-to’ work, travel and play options FRANKiE4’s cult following are growing to expect. This winters collection of kicks will not disappoint either. AW19 sees three new additions to the FRANKiE4 sneaker range – KENDALL, LUCY and MiM. KENDALL is a street style dream, featuring buttery soft leather and all the cushioning and support you would expect from a FRANKiE4. LUCY is another option for those who like a sleeker profile, and MiM brings serious street appeal – available in two patent leathers, and two smooth leathers on a chic chunky (yet light weight) looking sole.

Founder and designer Caroline McCulloch, a Podiatrist and Physiotherapist, and her team have developed a strong AW19 range that will satisfy the fashionistas whilst still maintaining the brands signature level of ultra-comfort and cushioning.
