THE ONLINE RETAIL DESTINATION FOR LUXURY FOOTWEAR AND FOOT CARE

 

A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR – WELCOME TO MYSHUBOX.COM

We are very excited to finally introduce you to MYSHUBOX.COM, the online retail destination for luxury footwear and foot care.

MYSHUBOX.COM is the first luxe e-commerce store in the UK to combine style with smart foot care.

2015 was the year of wellness. Over 100, 000 shots of the downward dog and over 495,000 kettlebell poses filled our Instagram feeds. As a nation and globally we are more health conscious than ever before and more and more people are incorporating and refining fitness routines, to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Exercising three times a week is wellness, “clean eating” is wellness, weekly yoga or soul cycle classes are great to work the tums and bums but what about the feet? Are foot exercises incorporated into your routine? Are you educated about the muscles and bones in your feet? Do you know how foot health can affect your overall body? Often the blame for foot problems is solely placed with shoes, without consideration for the lack of education when buying shoes and the lack of care and attention given to our foundation. Focusing on the foundation is essential to overall well-being, our feet support the whole body but often legs and feet are the forgotten body parts when it comes to maintenance. Just like you can’t eat cake every day and expect to stay healthy, you can’t expect your feet and the rest of your body to feel good if they are not nurtured and strengthened.

Nearly 80% of the adult population in the UK are currently experiencing problems with their feet. Lack of foot care and wearing ill-fitting, badly constructed footwear can exacerbate this. The reality is that our feet are tied up in shoes all day, they become contracted; the bones narrow and the muscles weaken from lack of use. Over time, fascia begins to fuse the bones, muscles, and tendons together so that the feet can’t function properly — which goes unnoticed until the body starts to break down. The foot muscles need fluidity, but rigidness is also required so the action of work and release can happen to help propel our bodies forward when walking and running. Exercising ankles, arches and toes is important to develop the proper balance of strength and muscle control.  Ensuring that the muscles have some release will help keep our feet pain and injury free.

MYSHUBOX.COM encourages conscious foot care, preventative measures for foot grievances and promises to support women to strengthen and nurture the feet without diminishing style choices. We offer women the opportunity to access luxury designs from recognised and emerging footwear brands, alongside indulgent foot care products to encourage health and wellbeing. Our aim is to motivate our community of shoe lovers to become lovers of their feet too! You can read more about the MYSHUBOX.COM H.E.E.L.S. philosophy here.

To start you on your journey to smart foot care, we will leave you with 5 simple ways to incorporate foot care into your daily routine.

1. Get measured

Feet change in size and shape even through adulthood however, the feet are not measured very often throughout our lifetime. When was the last time you had your foot measured to check your shoe size?

If the answer is more than a year ago, there is a good chance that your feet may be suffering from calluses or pinched toes due to wearing the wrong shoe size.We recommend checking your feet once a year for growth and before buying new shoes. Shoe sizes can vary between brands, so to help you evaluate which shoe size will fit you best you will find a link to the size conversion chart on each page. Check out our Shoe Size Guide and Size Conversion Chart here.

2. Hydrate your legs and feet

Indulge daily and apply a luxurious foot cream twice daily, to reduce build up of corns or calluses. Use body nourishing and leg contouring cream to rehydrate the skin. We offer a range of Foot Care Essentials that will help you on your way to smart foot care.

3. Visit a foot doctor

When you have a pain that causes great concern, would you ignore it? The answer is no, visiting a doctor would be a high priority! The same is to be said for our feet. Experiencing foot pain should not be the norm, visit a foot doctor. Podiatry services can help to alleviate pain, experienced from corns and calluses and can even highlight more serious issues in your general well being. Your feet mirror your general health. Paying attention and nurturing our foundation can alert us to conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders as initial symptoms are shown in the feet – so foot ailments can be the first sign of more serious medical problems.

MYSHUBOX.COM offers a unique experience that allows shoppers to purchase treatments; redeemable at our partners, Leading Harley Street Foot Clinic. Treatment options are available to address foot health concerns or injuries, from Medical Foot Assessments to High Heel MOT’s.  Submit your foot health queries to concierge@myshubox.com. Your queries will be submitted to registered Harley Street Foot & Ankle specialists at The London Foot Clinic.

4. Support your foundation

It is important to switch up your footwear; not only will you be more stylish your shoes will last longer and your feet will thank you. Extended wear of one specific shoe style and wearing shoes with lack of support can cause issues and damage to feet, for instance ballet flats with lack of support can be akin to walking barefoot. There are a range of Bespoke Treatment options available to assist with support and padding, wearing soft insoles or gel inserts will reduce the impact on your knees.

5. Stretch & strengthen

Take time every day to stretch your calf muscles and feet. After a day in heels or flats, spend five minutes or so stretching your hip flexors, quads and calves. One of our favourite ways to help release and relax the muscles along the soles of the feet is to use the Yamuna Foot Waker Kit.  In our opinion, this is one of the greatest foot-care toys available.  If you don’t have a pair yet, you’ll find them here.
