Save your winter soles with FRANKiE4 Footwear

Nikki Parkinson Fashion 258 Comments

Sponsored by FRANKiE4 Footwear

I remember the first time my feet slipped into a pair of FRANKiE4 Footwear shoes.

It was very much a happy dance moment.

A COMFORTABLE happy dance moment.

Like any woman with half an eye on fashion trends, up until that point I’d pretty much sacrificed any foot comfort for a pretty shoe style.

I knew this practice was far from sensible but I really wasn’t prepared to go down the “comfort” shoe path.

It turns out that I CAN opt for a functional shoe that is both comfortable and fashionable.

FRANKiE4 Footwear makes that all very possible.

FRANKiE4 shoes have become my go-to shoes for days when I’m on the run, on my feet all day and have no time or energy for discomfort (my #everydaystyle posts on Instagram are testimony to that!).

So, it’s with great excitement that I announce to you that I’m FRANKiE4’s 2015 ambassador.

In this post I’m going to share with you my favourite shoes from the new Autumn-Winter 2015 collection.

Plus read on for a special discount code for all SY readers and a chance for one reader to have their soles saved by a pair of FRANKiE4 shoes this season.

FRANKiE 4 AW15

Last winter I visited FRANKiE4’s headquarters is Brisbane’s western suburbs.

I loved meeting the team behind the shoes – stylish and functional shoes that have been developed by a podiatrist and physiotherapist.

Anyone involved in fashion design and production is always working ahead of the current season, so I was excited in this meeting to get my feet into some of the production samples for the upcoming spring-summer and this year’s autumn-winter season.

I fell in love with the spring-summer sandals (which featured here) and then FRANKiE4 designer Caroline McCulloch showed me a prototype for a black boot.

A heeled boot. Designed to be fashionable and comfortable.

It took me all of 3.4 seconds to get those babies on my feet.

OH MY.

Talk about boots with benefits.

Talk about redefining what it means to wear a high heel, statement boot.

On the outside they look like a fabulous pair of suede ankle boots with a wooden heel.

It’s what’s on the inside that makes these boots for walking … dancing … and probably running if you were that way inclined.

It took the FRANKiE4 team two years and countless prototypes to develop but end result – the LiZ – is packed with secret cushioning and hidden arch support to make them this autumn-winter’s most wearable boot.

Expect to see me wearing them a lot this season. Here’s just and taste of how I’ll be styling them. Want more ankle boot styling tips (check out this SY archive post for tips on how to wear ankle boots).

FRANKiE4 Footwear shoes feature a podiatrist-designed functional footbed that operates like an orthotic for foot and leg support and cushioning. It aids in the treatment and prevention of foot and leg health problems.

I can go the distance – standing or walking – whenever I’m in my FRANKiE4s.

All FRANKiE4 shoes and boots include the patented Custom Fit system which means you receive additional removable footbeds so you can adjust the fit of the shoe to your foot. I love this, as most people do, one of my feet is bigger than the other. I’m able to adjust accordingly and not experience slipping.

In the LiZ boots, I was able to use the components to get a perfect fit. I was able to take out the full footbed and replace with a half footbed which created more space for my high arch in these boots.

Everyday shoe-robe

There is SO much to love about the entire autumn-winter 2015 collection – not just the LiZ boots.

My everyday shoe-robe has a smart casual theme as I work from home.

For a core everyday collection, I need heeled boots, a slip-on and a quality sneaker. These three types of shoe see me through most of my everyday activities.

In comfort. And style.

I never like playing favourites but if I were to do so my FRANKiE4 autumn-winter favourites would include the two colourways in the LiZ boots (above) and the JAMiE ankle boots in camel/brown oily nubuck, black ELLiE leather sneakers and black oily nubuck JANELLE loafers (see styling suggestions below).

  1. Thank you for every other informative blog. The place else
    could I am getting that kind of information written in such
    an ideal approach? I’ve a venture that I am simply now operating
    on, and I have been at the look out for such information.

  2. So excited to see beautiful (and comfortable) shoes in a size that fits my not so small feet. Usually encased in sensible not so attractive work shoes what a treat it would be to show my feet a good time in a pair of these beauties!

  3. Once upon a time… an independent traveller, by the name of Lily, went on an adventure to explore kingdoms far and wide. Being so independent, she decided to travel on foot because that’s what real travellers do, forgoing the horse and carriage. Little did this adventurous explorer realise the damage she was doing to her feet by wearing ill-fitting shoes.

    She Flamenco’d her way through Spain using stilts that the
    local women called stilettos; she pirouetted through Paris in local ballet
    flats not made for the sole and she sprinkler danced on the coast of Australia in rubber mats that the locals affectionately called thongs. It was a joyous time being a traveller but she eventually returned to her kingdom where she took up her responsibilities.

    After settling down, this little explorer found out the hard way what reckless abandonment does to one’s sensitive soles. Pain in arches, aches in ankle joints and constant sprained ankles… oh the bother!

    Luckily, a magical foot wizard came to the rescue and conjured up a new best friend from FRANKiE4 Land. What a marvellous summer Lily and her new best friend ROSiE enjoyed. They walked through the parks, frequented the local watering hole and danced until the music stopped.

    Now the cold has come, and poor ROSiE is not fit for such weather so she’s retired the north, to a kingdom called Cupboard, for summer. Lily needs a new best friend to help her get through autumn/winter. She’s eyed out a lovely camel named LiZ to be her new best friend, hopefully LiZ can come her way so they can play.

    The End.

  5. I’m not the person that wins competitions, any kind, so hesitantly I purchased two pairs of the Ellie sneakers. One black, one silver. They haven’t come off my feet. This prompted a huge clean out of shoes from my collection. All to Vinnies. I will be purchasing more Frankie4 when the budget allows. Thank you Nikki for the review and ‘how to wear’ suggestions. I now chase after my grandchildren, with STYLE!

  6. FRANKiE4s will make me whole
    saving more than just my soles!
    Instant style and comfort too
    FRANKiE4 is my FAVOURITE shoe!

  7. FRANKiE4 footwear has opened up a whole new wardrobe for me. I am a size 12 shoe and since being a teenager I have struggled to find fashionable, comfortable shoes in my size without compromise.
    I discovered FRANKiE4 just before summer, and now own Ellie, Sophie, and for my son’s wedding I wore Ivy. For the first time in my life I do not have to think about what shoes to wear. Every pair makes me feel a princess, even though I am now a little old to be one!

  8. It’s simple – Frankie4 shoes are the BOMB! My shoe-robe would be so much happier with a pair of Frankie4 boots taking pride of place. My current selection of old, daggy and unsupportive boots are EMBARRASSING! It would be a fashion crime to wear my old boots for one more Autumn/Winter. Save me from this embarrassment please Frankie4 and Styling You!!!

  9. I’ve just moved to Adelaide & found a lovely shoe store at Glenelg where I bought my first pair of Frankie4 Silver sneakers. They are so comfortable I can walk miles & they keep my poor Central Queensland feet warm. I also have heel Spurs & I don’t have to put heel pads in these shoes just love them Plus they look fantastic

  10. I would love a pair of Jamie boots in tan and peach. I recently got orthotics and its pretty devestating for a fashion obsessed 20-something to find out she has to wear orthtoics and sensible shoes for the rest of her life! The Ellies i bought recently have defintely saved my soles and I can’t wait to add a pair of boots to my winter wardrobe. I usually go straight for black so thought I would branch out with the super cute and fun tan and peach!

  11. Women have shoe appeal,
    But I simply hate heels.
    Sure it’s just bad fitting experiences I’ve had,
    But it sounds like Frankie4 won’t be bad!

  12. Heard so much about the Frankie4 range that I went and tried some on today. Purchased the Ellie in black and had to hold back as I would really like the Jamie also. I find it very hard to find shoes that fit so was a surprise to find the Jamie fitted so well. (I have never owned a pair of boots as boots just don’t fit my feet). Really want those Jamie’s.

  13. We all have a “hush-hush”
    fetish and boots are mine!

    Then as you can see I
    also LOVE my Aussie wine!

    Yet I have an aggravating
    bunion which casts a murky shadow,

    It’s overdue to
    explore the reality of this “sole” situation, as the bunion still does grow!

    “FRANKIE4s” Liz boot
    is sure to prevent further mutilation,

    Welcoming a snug and
    stylish foundation!

    Over the Summer
    season I’ve been wearing flip flops to not further aggravate!

    AND just like you I’ve
    tried many prototypes and the “LIZ” is the very one that did captivate!

  14. OMG I’m in love with the Frankie 4 Jamie ankle boots! Too gorgeous not to own! They would certainly get a good workout in Hobart where it feels like boot season most of the year 🙂

  16. I think it”s time for a little less Birkenstock style and a little more Bergdorf style at my place! The ELLiE sneakers in black would be brilliant for our Melbourne Autumn Winter: )

  17. Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life. A pair of FRANKiE4 shoes would definitly save this housemaid’s soul.

  18. I developed a Morton’s neuroma a few years back. So no more tight, high or uncomfortable shoes for me. These shoes sound fabulous.

  19. thanks nikki nearly forgot again!
    here’s a little ditty for you …
    I’m a shoe lover for sure!
    @ 64, I know the score,
    saving my soles with frankie4
    is like walking on air and more …
    i’ll be floating! ….. j’adore!!! <3
    mmmm! … love m:)X

  20. I’m 30 weeks pregnant & wearing nothing but flat shoes now, I have had to sacrifice style for comfort but it appears with FRANKiE4 footwear I don’t have to. Every since Nikki has been featuring them on her blog I’ve wanted a pair.

  21. i like good solid shoes that have quality and in need of some this winter as walking is my only mode of transport, FRANKiE4 would save me from the winter blues and my feet. 🙂

  22. Well-built with many good FEETures, I urgently needed some stylish footwear for a job interview. My FRANKiE4s! My SOLE contender. They helped me get a YES, a STEP in the right direction!

  23. I buy shoes (not cheap ones either) that fit. Until I wear them all day and then I have to add heel risers because my heels ache. Then I add ball of feet cushions because of my calluses. Then my little toes require band aids for the blisters. What I would give for a pair of comfortable shoes that are not nanna shoes.

  24. As I have big feet (size – 11 1/2-12), I have
    great difficulty finding stylish and comfortable shoes/boots to fit me. I
    search each season to be told “sorry we do not have that size” and
    feel utterly disappointed. Winning a pair of FRANKiE4’s would be totally
    awesome, and as I recently had calluses removed, I need to look after my soles
    so they do not return. I would be over the moon if I won a pair of these
    stylish, yet amazing foot friendly shoes!

  25. Travelling in winter but there’s no joggers for me… FRANKiE4’s ‘ROSiE’ will see me walking all day without looking like a tourist, ripe for pick-pocketing!

  26. I have been searching for a pair of comfy, stylish, hard wearing ankle boots for yonkers!! I am desperate for a pair that I can wear with leggings, skinny jeans and dresses. Everything that I have tried on and wasted my money on is sitting in my cupboard unworn. I last about an hour before my feet are killing me! I KNOW that Frankie4 would save me from the constant yearly search for the perfect boot, I KNOW they would be the most comfortable, stylish boots I could ever wish for!

  27. Frankie4 boots would be amazing for winter as I have the flattest feet in Brisbane. It would be great to wear something stylish and supportive. My back would be in heaven!

  28. I would love to win a pair of Frankie 4 boots for winter, simply they are the perfect height and style for my feet.

  29. Frankie could save my soles by replacing my cheap and nasty ankle boots for some gens my feet will love wearing. They might also save my soul because if I purchase another pair of shoes (in pursuit of the right ones), my husband may throttle me!

  30. Congratulations on your new role. Frankie4s footwear would save my soles this winter by making them look relaxed & sexy every were they go!

  31. I would love to win a pair of Frankie 4 boots for winter! I am sure they would save my soul and soles by supporting my back issues – being designed by health care professionals. The Jamie boot would fit perfectly into my casual wardrobe and lifestyle! Kathryn 🙂

  32. I have a bunion -both parents genetic lines didn’t give me a chance!- so it is ALWAYS a big plus plus when the style matches the comfort. I follow SY for shoe tips -amongst other things!- and I recently retired my ankle boots (held onto it for longer than I should have!) there’s never been a more perfect time to own a pair of Frankie4 to save my sole!

  33. Frankie 4 would save more than my sole if they’re made with podiatrist. My back and heels will thank you. They will also look great with my jeans so the guys will thank you too!

  34. Frankie 4 would save my soles this autumn/winter as being pregnant I need all the comfort I can get & they look so divine .

  35. Six or seven years ago, to Caroline I went
    To solve the issue of my toes…
    and feet and arches and legs.
    Yet in her office I despaired and sighed,
    At 23, and on my feet
    Teaching all day long,
    My feet were just too big
    To wear any of the… (I can’t think of a polite way of saying how ugly the comfort shoes are for a young professional woman)

    Fast forward a few years or so
    And my feet are bigger still!
    Three treasures in three years
    Left my feet all but killed.
    But back to the classroom
    I have returned, to add a little thrill,
    Into my busy, hectic life, an educator still.
    But Prep! My Lord!
    What does it mean
    For my poor toes, poor arches, poor soles,
    But tears and pain and searching…
    In vain…
    For comfort and (Oh! The vanity)
    A touch of class as well.

    But (please don’t ever quote me)
    Facebook saved my soles!
    I saw a post from Nikki
    And at once I hit the road!
    Leaving my children with their dad
    I raced to the nearest store
    And asked, nay, pleaded,
    “Size 12, PLEASE! Show me more!
    No, no, not that brand,
    There is but one name that I need!
    The one with functional footbeds,
    The one designed to please
    Both podiatrist and wearer,
    And no, I’m not a tease!
    The brand I’m told is FRANKiE4
    Show me, please, oh please!”

    Oh the choices! Oh the choices!
    For the first time in my life!
    Comfort and style and even size!
    “Yes! Yes! Yes! I could almost cry!”
    So out I went, smile plastered
    Across my happy face.
    All these years of searching,
    All these years of pain,
    All these years of being told,
    “No, your size we do not take,”
    Are now behind me. What a joy,
    My life is near complete.
    I love my family, I love my job
    And now at long last,
    I love my feet!

    Post script: Last Saturday I bought a pair of blue ALiX and black ROSiE. I am desperate for the rouge ROSiE and red patent SOPHiE but as the store I went to didn’t have them in stock I was saved from having to make a choice. As a mum to three little ones it’s hard to prioritise footwear but thankfully my husband sees the value. Please help me add to my collection! These are now the only shoes I wear. I work as a Prep teacher and had so many of my colleagues asking about my new shoes last week. It was such a joy to refer them to FRANKiE4! The best part about the whole experience has been realising that the incredible designer of these shoes is the lady who helped me bring life back to my feet many years ago before I had children! Thank you Caroline! You are amazing!

  36. Having made the leap into my Frankie 4 shoes for work last year, my work life has dramatically improved (I would almost go so far as to say it’s improved my job satisfaction as a nurse immensely) that I would adore a pair so that my weekend feet could feel as happy as my weekday feet whilst chasing my uber busy three kids around

  37. 2 reasons:
    1: I’m a young mum with 2 small boys and I work part time. I’m always complaining of sore feet so I’d love a pair, any pair of Frankie’s, for respite.
    2: Frankie’s would also be saving me for committing fashion sin by wearing amazing looking shoes which are also great for your feet – who knew comfy shoes could look so cute!?

  38. After being told by the podiatrist that the cause of my foot pain was due to the 23 hours a day I spent in bad shoes, not my 1 hour of exercise, I have spent the last few months living in Birkenstocks. But with the cooler weather descending on the Barossa, this Mum/student/soon to be business owner, is trying to work out how to save for some proper boots that will be good for her feet!

  39. I have been looking for shoes that are stylish AND comfortable. FOUND!! My poor feet have been through the wars and the latest.. pain in my right foot from not having enough support in my shoes.. Frankie4 would help immensely!!

  40. I’d love a pair of these as regular shin splints make my days long and painful. Stylish and pain free is the ultimate!

  41. I would love a new pair of boots this winter and as I stand all day in my job, the comfort that FRANKIE4 FOOTWEAR promises these would be an amazing pair of boots to wear

  42. As a Nurse on her feet all day it would be like foot therapy as I slip into my comfy FRANKiE4 boots on my day off staying ahead of the trend in a comfy way!

  43. Any of the FRANKiE4 footwear would be brilliant!! Being on my feet all day teaching makes my arthritic knees ache- I know the quality of a great product when I see it!

  44. Comfy fashionable shoes running after a preschooler and pushing a new born around are a dream come true!!

  45. I love to find myself a pair of shoes for comforter as well as style. Having spurs in both feet it’s very sore feet at the end of the day. I don’t mind spending the money , if I know for sure they are good. Extremely good. 🙂

  46. With a loooong netball and football season looming fast, FRANKIE4 are the shoes I’m thinking of turning to, to keep my feet war, dry and comfy! need I say more!

  47. I think my flat feet would thank FRANKIE4 for making my feet very happy. My feet and shoes don’t really have a great relationship which is very sad when I love shoes and every winter I search for comfy boot. I will be investing in a pair of FRANKIE4’s this winter

  48. I have painful bunions which are getting worse as I age. I desperately need to find some comfortable but still fashionable shoes & boots as I cannot walk very far in most of my shoes, especially heels. The only comfortable shoes I can wear for long periods are my runners! This is partially due to genetics as my Mum also had shocking bunions which she had unsuccessful surgery on so I am hoping to avoid this. It is also a legacy of my youth & wearing ridiculously high uncomfortable shoes for hours on the dance floor! i do not have any of these shoes as yet but have heard that they are super comfortable & great for problem feet like mine so would love to give them a try.

  49. I need the Jamie boots to save my feet, whilst looking stylish while I am walking my son & dog too school, & sometimes having to lug a 17kg child when her legs “are broken/painted on/gone too sleep” all in what will be a freezing alpine winter.

  50. I get soggy feet while on playground duty everyday during Winter at school! The Jamie boots would make me look good and keep my tootsies dry!

  51. Hi 🙂 we were at the surgeon yesterday, for Maddison, she just had surgery on her ankle ( ouch !! ) and she recommended these …. Would love her to try a pair … Great timing to see this !! Thanks bel xx

  52. Putting out the SOS to Frankie to not only save my soles but my legs too when I’m pounding the streets organising events for my local community.

  53. I’m on my feet all day in the classroom, so a pair of these would be so comfortable to be in all day! Walking around on playground duty would be much better too!

  54. I’m a busy Mum on my feet all day or on the run. A comfortable, decent pair of shoes would save my sorry feet!

  55. Working in a Kindy means
    spending all day on my feet
    Never really getting
    a chance to take a seat
    My soles need a pair
    of Frankie4 sneakers
    The ultimate saviour
    of all teachers.

  56. I’m solestruck! Just the thought of walking on air is heeling when I constantly feel I’m walking on eggshells.

  57. I have a long Tasmanian winter ahead
    I can not spend it all in bed.
    My feet are cold already
    but I must go steady
    To save my soles – those pleasure seekers
    I need to win some ELLiE sneakers

  58. I love when comfort and style meet. Women should not have to compromise. The black leather sneakers you have are gorgeous and can see my feet staying warm and comfy all day long keeping up with the 5 & 6 year olds I work with.

  59. I walk my children to school everyday and have to chose comfort over fashion as I have plantar fasciitis (Inflamed soles). A pair of FRANKiE4 shoes may put me back into the yummy mummy stakes again! I am over the ‘white sneakers with jeans’ look I am currently sporting.

  60. I need a pair of shoes that can see me comfortably through a crazy work week and yet is stylish ehough to look like I mean business – last week I was in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, running between meetings, offices and airports and by the end of the week my feet were killing me!

  61. 45 has officially become my magic number to transform my footwear choice from style over comfort to the complete reverse. Save my souls Frankie4’s, let me have BOTH!

  62. These would keep my tooties stylish for the kindy run – as my faithful thongs are just not the done thing I’ve discovered!!

  63. I had bunion surgery on both feet just over 12 months ago. Before that I wore shoes with pain and after it I’ve had a good 12 months of feet recovery. Now I’m pain less and bump free!! I’m excited by the arrival of autumn and that my feet can enjoy the style and comfort of a pair of FRANKiE4 LiZ boot in black, hopefully!!

  64. I have heard a lot of this brand from various sources (it must be a sign!) and would really love to try them out. I am not great at entering competitions but reading about Frankie 4 on two very different styling blogs in the last week has me intrigued! The Jamie boot looks like if would cover so many occasions.

  65. I’d love to win a pair of the LiZ boots in Camel Oily Nubuck as the perfect boots for a new mum taking the pram out for walks and outings. I think they’d go perfectly with skinny jeans in winter and be equally cute with skirts when it warms up again.

  66. I can’t stop thinking about you ELLiE. I think we could be the perfect fit. Just need to re-work the budget a bit….

  67. Frankie4 shoes are amazing,over the past year I have purchased 4 pairs. Now I am in need of boots, as I have ankle and knee issues and the boots I have are to high an unstable for me. I am in the process of editing my shoe collection. Would love the LiZ in the black. Frankie4 has definitely saved my soles.

  68. Frankie4, an Australian company. Making beautiful, stylish and supportive shoes. How awesome is that? I became a convert when I tried on my first pair of Ellie’s. In red. Of course. I lived in them. And so I added a second pair this summer. Beige and gold trim. Lovely. Reading the comments here praising Frankie4, reading Nikki’s praises for Frankie4 shoes, boots, slides and sandals, I have no doubt I have found MY shoe brand. I will be buying something with a heel this year, quite possibly a boot. Extra lovely.Thank you Frankie4. For saving my ageing soles. And thank you Nikki for the discount code. 🙂

  69. Oh how I love FRANKiE4. Purchased a pair of summer sandals and they were the wrong size. To change – no problem. Comfort plus! Absolutely see myself in a pair of LiZ boots. Comfort is paramount for me these days, particularly with foot/back problems. . FRANKiE4 and ME – what better combination!

  70. Recovering from a recent back injury, I now have to seriously edit my shoe wardrobe. A pair of stylish FRANKiE4 JANELLE loafers would be a perfect start.

  71. I’ll be training for the New York Marathon this winter and with all that running comes sore ankles. I just can’t wear my running sneakers with my winter clothes – so FRANKiE4 ELLiE black leather sneaker will allow me to look stylish while keeping my family and friends from noticing that marathon training does take it’s toll on me!

  72. FRANKiE4 LiZ boot in camel for me. FRANKiE4 loafer for you. NP’s the new FRANKiE4 ambassador to rock our styling soles this AW15 season.
    Dress up or down, our FRANKiE4 feet are saved!

  73. FRANKIE4s please save my little chilly soles this winter!! I live in Victoria so wear beautiful winter boots from March through to November! Bring on the boots and woolie socks season 🙂

  74. Those FRANKiE4 LiZ boot in camel oily nubuck sure look like something i could wear at work and on the weekends this winter! Comfy and stylish so I can forget about my plantar fasciitis!!

  76. The fact FRANKiE4 has been recommended by Styling You and fashion magazines speaks volumes. As an added bonus FRANKiE4 has give quality and shoe comfort top priority: you should take extremely good care of your feet. I love FRANKiE4 boots from the autumn /winter collections.

  77. The Frankie4 ELLiE black leather sneakers will look after my dodgy feet and save me loads of physio and podiatrists bills after I wear them travelling around the UK for 3 weeks.

  79. The FRANKiE4 ELLiE black leather sneaker
    saves my feet on the long walk to work, while the FRANKiE4 LiZ boot in black oily
    nubuck is under my desk waiting for me!

  80. I have worn my Frankie4 Georgies all summer. They are incredibly comfortable. I would love to welcome Jamie into my winter wardrobe to keep up the good work Georgie has started.

  81. Frankie could have allowed my feet to still look stylish while staying warm but looking cool all at the same time!

  82. I’m hoping for a little Frankie foot love to help me pound the cobblestone streets around Italy this Winter. It would be fabulous to bring a little Aussie comfort and glamour on holidays with me. How wonderful would it be to tell the Italians and tourists that my ultra chic footwear is from Australia and not Europe!

  83. Frankie footwear could keep my toes warm and dry from those wet days. As well as being practical they are stylish all the way.

  84. I’ve just returned from five hours walking around Carindale to buy my daughter a couple of birthday presents. My feet are aching and my legs are killing me. What I wouldn’t give for a comfortable shoe that also looks funky. Aaah, that would be so wonderful.

  85. I love the outdoors and fight many foot wars,
    so thongs are my go to, an easy and fast shoe.
    When the temperature drops, my feet turn to ice-blocks,
    and my soles have no support, puddle dodging becomes a sport.
    FRANKIE4s could be my weapon of attack, to help me keep on track,
    style and comfort they’ve seen my S.O.S, to save me now tootsies in distress.

  86. I love the fact that FRANKiE4s footwear is stylish and trendy but doesn’t compromise on comfort. That is my type of footwear.

  87. Everyone has a story, mine is simple. FRANKIE4s would save my soles by keeping them warm, comfortable,looking stylish and enabling me to do anything

  89. Being a size 42 I’m often left feeling like one of the ugly step sisters. Shoe sales assistance have looked in horror and declared “we don’t stock that size” it’s almost tempting to hack off a heel or lop of some toes. With a pair of Frankie4’s I could have my Cinderella moment. I’m already imagining it – a knock on the door, rushing to answer and being presented with a beautiful pair of shoes that fit, perfectly. Naturally it’s love at first sight, with the shoes of course – although my delivery guy’s not bad either!

  90. My toes would be warm, the balls of my feet light. With Frankie4s this Autumn/Winter, getting out and about would finally be a delight.

  91. Having just injured my foot in a big way, I have no idea what shoes I am going to wear during my recovery stage

  92. After 13 operations including a total ankle replacement (injured ankle in the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami) I’m longing for a pair of shoes that I’m able to walk in & are comfortable…I’m so hoping that Frankie4 will save my soles! xoE

  93. 57 is not too old,
    For Frankie4s, you’ve got me ‘soled’,
    Style and comfort, I really can’t wait,
    At last a shoe that makes me feel great!

  94. I’m 48 and when I was told a few years ago that I needed orthotics due to a hip impingement, i thought my trendy shoe wearing days were over. Luckily, the internet proved to me this wasn’t the case and I discovered online shops like Frankie 4 to put off the ‘nana shoe wearing blues’ for a good few years at least. I’d love a pair of the Frankie Liz Boots to update my shoe wardrobe!

  95. I am 44 and I suffer from Osteoarthritis in both my feet,I spend my day on my feet running around. By the end of the day my feet ache and are swollen. I have been told I need to wear Orthotics YUK!!, Frankie footwear would mean my feet would look great as well as feel great, something that no other shoe can never do. Please help me!!

  96. I read ‘a revolution in footwear, offering a functional footbed and custom fit’ – show ME how you can save me please FRANKiE4 LiZ boot.

  97. After spending the summer pregnant wearing slip on shoes this would be a great treat for my sore, dry hard done by feet!

  98. At 44 I think a little Frankie style wouldn’t go astray in dancing to the colors of the autumnal turquoise blue skies and the child like fun of marching through the colourful leaves dropping to the ground. And best of all Frankie can help me kick and dance away those winter blues!!! So many choices and not enough days.

  99. I spend my day on my feet running around a hospital taking xrays of people. By the end of the day my feet ache. Frankie footwear would mean my feet would look great as well as feel great, something that sneakers can never do.

  100. My mum has been on my case to invest in a pair of Frankie shoes because she loves them and every time I read about them on your blog I get another kick up the butt to get a pair. But my feet have grown each pregnancy and I didn’t want to invest in a pair that I’d only wear for a couple of months. Since having Phoebe I have had plantar fasciitis in my right foot. Because I’m on my feet all day being a mum and doing the Kindy run, by night time my heel and Achilles’ tendon is throbbing. I haven’t invested in the shoes simply because my sizing has been all over the place! A week ago I bought a pair of She wear work boots which has been on my to buy list since they were launched. Now I know my foot size and I won’t be having anymore babies I think I need to get a pair of Frankies next to help with the healing process of my foot and save it’s sole!

  101. Frankly Frankie, at 40 (ahem) something I really do feel the time has come for me to stop squishing my poor old feet into stiletto heels no matter how gorgeous they look. Can you help??

  102. Spend all day on tiled floor advising ladies how to dress with style and for comfort, easy to say and do except for having to constantly try and find stylish shoes to make my feet sing not sore, those boots were made for walking all day long, and would love to find out if they’ll stay the course.

  103. I have just been to a podiatrist who has diagnosed my
    aching feet with plantar faciitis.
    Why me? I’m too young!
    I have to wear…ORTHOTICS! The horror!

    Have you seen what orthotic friendly shoes look like?
    I might as well buy a walking frame and die my hair
    PURPLE while I’m at it.

    No. Not for me. A sexy pair of LiZ boots in camel will be my saviour.
    I will step out in sexy ankle boots. My feet will be cradled and supported.
    Noone will be the wiser.

  104. I work in a very busy delivery suite , after my 12 hour shifts a mix of days and nights standing on my feet I imagine slipping on a pair of FRANKIE 4 Feet would do for my feet what a bubble bath does for my body ….. Indulgent recovery luxe
    Vanessa

  105. I have flat feet, always known it. I’m always feeling footWEARY! No more aches as I run for the bus, instead a STEP in the right direction with FRANKiE4 (what soothing FEETures!)

  106. I had given up on finding a “classy” pair of shoes that were equally comfortable. Maybe Frankie4 can change my mind? I’d love to own a pair of these shoes. They sound divine

  107. ELLiE’s already saving my soles this autumn, but if LiZ could drop in, my soles would be saved when heels are required as well 😉

  108. Thanks to my Alix sandals, I have moved away from Birkenstocks (in 3 different colours!) as my go to summer footwear. The Alix look lovely on and are so comfortable to wear, as I can adjust the ankle strap and toe piece to suit. Now I just need them in a few other colours!

  109. Owning a pair of FRANKiE4 is like owning a bag from Louis Vuitton. It’s a luxury. It’s all about the finest leather, the quality, the beautiful finish and impeccable style. To own a pair of FRANKiE4’s will put great deal in all my cozy winter days spent outside. I trust it will protect my feet, warm up my toes and put a smile on my face every step I take..

  110. I require arch supports in my shoes and I do not do well walking long distances without them. This is where Frankie4 shoes help me. They are stylish and comfortable, and they make my feet feel supported, comfortable and happy.

  111. The FRANKiE4 LiZ boot in black oily nubuck are THE style of boots that I have been looking for throughout the last 3 winters. I have never worn booties before but love everything about these, especially the stacked heal (so good for their looks as well as their height) and the amazingly comfy looking soft, matt black leather. WoW!

  112. I have just found my perfect Autumn Winter boot in the FRANKiE4 Liz boot in camel. They arrived today and are my first purchase with you;) They will save my souls as I think they will go with everything and are amazing! I love so many other FRNKiE4 shoe styles

  113. FRANKIE4s would be a godsend for my feet & heels. I have been looking for a comfortable & classy shoe for work for a long time, something I am happy to keep wearing & not rushing to take off as soon as I leave the office!

  114. Tomorrow I’m having my second baby. As any new mum knows, getting out of your PJs is a feat during those early days. This time around, I’ve vowed, that even if I’m in a soft pant all day, I’m going to do my best to feel stylish so I feel good. Winning these Frankie4 shoes will absolutely save me this winter as they are so comfortable and stylish they’ll help me feel good without looking or feeling contrived. Please…help a new mother out and pick me!!

  115. FRANKIE4s could save my feet this winter, every year I try and buy a comfortable closed in shoe and I always end up with tired, sore feet. Having a bunion on one foot doesn’t help. I’ve bought boots and had them stretched and re-stretched and they still hurt. HELP!

  116. I discovered the fantastic FRANKIE4 this summer after seeing you wear them on #everydaystyle on IG. I was blessed (yes that it is how my feet feel after wearing them) to be able to buy a pair of the JULIA sandals. They definitely SAVED my SOLES over summer but now that winter is approaching I will no longer be able to have blessed feet. A pair of the LIZ boots (yes they are my fav already) would SAVE my SOLES for winter and then I would have blessed feet all year.

  117. My feet are the bane of my existence! Maybe it’s an age thing (47) but I find that any extended walking (say more than ten minutes) does terrible things to my feet, even in “comfortable” shoes. My favourite type of holiday is a city holiday involving lots of walking – New York later in the year, Melbourne next week. But my feet are NEVER happy! I think FRANKIE4s could be saving my soles 🙂

  118. Can you really have style and comfort? If so, I’m in. My hiking boots are uber comfortable but not so terribly stylish. I need to style up my footwear.

  119. I turned 50 🙁 & feeling a little frumpy! I love the styling of an ankle boot with a skirt or pants just above ankle height & would like to try it this winter. To feel sexy while comfortable in Frankie 4 boots would be fantastic.

  120. Super style and comfort – I’m there! Nothing worse than sore feet so I’d love to own a pair of Frankies! I think we’d become great friends!!

  121. The reason I love shoes is because they give me a certain feeling,
    excitement and energy when I see them. They are the one area of my life where I can honestly say practicality or common sense do not prevail or even exist – I guess you could say they bring out my rebellious side. Of course my dream shoe is always the latest pair I own until I spot the next dream pair that I simply must purchase and possess! So I’d love to win a pair of these gorgeous FRANKIE4s. it truly would be food for my soul. Oops, I mean SOLES!

  122. I fell in love with frankie shoes about a year ago. My feet love them. I love them. There is no other shoe for me now!! They are simply the best!!

  123. I have been having pains in my feet and somedays its hurts when I walk a lot……I need so comfy good quality shoes. Much appreciate this chance to win some.

  124. It’s time we had a talk Birkenstock and Converse. It’s time for me to see other shoes. I don’t have to sacrifice comfort. Frankie4 Jamie – I think you are the one for me.

  125. While entering a new career which involves plenty of walking (but still looking respectable) these would be a true sole saver!

  126. My feet look and feel seventy
    A frankie4 would be heavenly
    I am in love with that comfort boot
    Oh we will have an absolute hoot x

  127. I can already see myself wearing a pair of Frankie4’s around New Zealand for my very first family holiday, so excited!! And to have comfortable feet would be the ultimate!

  128. There was once a girl with flat feet
    They made her cry in defeat
    When she won Frankie4s
    Her feet were not sore
    Oh what a marvellous treat

  129. Frankie I can’t take my eyes off you, you’re just too good to be true, you’d be like heaven to touch, I wanna hold you so much……

  130. I have a pair of red Sophie’s and love them to bits. I ordered the wrong size and exchanging them was so easy …the staff were so lovely. I would really love another pair of lace ups for my ageing old ballerinas feet.

  131. As a busy mum and business owner, I am always on the go – the style conundrum is, how do I get from a to b, fast – and still look good. My feet (and lifestyle) are made for a pair of Frankie4s

  132. OMG could I please have my soles saved by Frankie4? You see I work in retail on hard concrete floors and walk KILOMETRES every day. I am also 8 weeks into a weightloss program and my soles are extra sore from all of the extra physical activity. Also just quietly I have lost 8 kilos and totes going to purchase new jeans soon and new jeans realllllly need new boots. I have enclosed a photo of one of said soles in all its glory. It’s not pretty Nikki, it’s not pretty.

  133. 3 weeks ago I slipped on a piece of lime at a Relay for Life fundraiser. I am now nursing a very sprained ankle. I can only wear laced up shoes because of strapping etc. My silver ELLIe’s have been a lifesaver, they have saved my soles and my sanity !! What I have learnt is FRANKIE4, make amazing shoes, really, really comfortable shoes, and yes I need another pair of ELLIe’s this time in black !!

  134. I think I’ve found my sole mate in the JAMiE camel boot! I’ve had a pair of winter boots for a few years now and they have become a little…well actually, a lot weary. The poor old girls, let’s call them Thelma and Louise, have trudged to and from school/preschool pickups, carried the extra weight of a pregnancy or 2, walked with me as I soothed baby 1, 2 and 3 in the pram…and I’ve got to say they’ve been great. Much like a best friend to me. But I was wearing them the other day and I swear I heard them give a little sigh as I slipped them on, and Thelma said “Come on love, we’re on our last legs…it’s time to put us out to pasture!”. So I showed them the Jamie boots and they agreed they’d be a great choice…not too high, nice and comfy and a great colour. I felt bad showing them their replacements, but I could see the relief in their faces…”We’re really old and just want to be relegated to the back of the wardrobe, go for the JAMiE!” Thelma and Louise have had my back for a few years now, but I really think JAMiE and I would be best mates…she can save my sole any day 🙂

  136. How will I save my soles
    When I’m out doing the shopping at Coles?
    By wearing Frankie4
    When I run out the door
    I want to win! It’s game on, molls!

    (Forgive the language. Hopefully everyone gets the reference. And hope it gives you a laugh if nothing else!)

  137. These would be amazing! I was cursing my heels when my feet were cramping for standing all day I was adamant I was going to make slipper shoes but these look much more stylish!

  138. Oh my! I’m heading to the States this June, and my main worry with the whole trip, has been how I’m going to take care of my size 10, sookie, blister-prone feet without trudging through New York in an ugly pair of white cross trainers (and who can wear a dress with them?!?). After years of throwing out near-new shoes due to feet-stress/ soreness, I’m desperate for something that will hold up for hours on my feet (shopping!) that won’t make me feel middle-aged. Please help this Styler!!

  139. S.O.S, save our SOLES,
    Ellie black leather SNEAKER
    Would be easy for the TEACHER
    As they are much better than DR SCHOLZ
    And they become an ATTRACTIVE FEATURE !!!

  140. Having broken my ankle last year in Paris, and now recovering and back to my Ceroc dancing I could think of nothing better than a pair of these boots to be my saviour and comfort my other foot which had to do all the work while on one leg, and getting plantar fasciitis!! I have had to throw a lot of my shoes out as they are just not comfortable anymore and these look perfect!!!!

  141. oh my goodness. I spend all day chasing after a 1 and 3 year old. Those leather sneakers would totally make my life sooooo much easier and stylish! They would be perfect for the cold Victorian weather!

  142. Frankie4, if you do what you claim
    Can you save my sole from maim?
    I have flat feet and crazy toes
    Buying shoes gives me the woes
    If your boots are kind to feet
    That would be a fabulous treat
    I really hope I win the boots
    Thanks for reading *salutes*

  143. Many boots cause the balls of my feet to feel like they are burning after a long day pounding the pavements. I read that these shoes have secret cushioning and hidden arch support. Perfect. My tootsies cannot wait to wear a pair of these.

  144. Oh Frankie4 how I love thee, help my find my funk this winter… I can see us now rocking a pair of skinny jeans and trench :))))

  145. I run around all day and to have my feet in comfort would be bliss and to have my feet looking stylish a swell perfect.

  146. a mum of 3, and a foot that has grown a shoe size with every pregnancy rendering my shoe collection useless. I need a new pair of boots to get me through this winter! something comfy for all the running around I do!

  147. For comfort and for style
    They’re perfect for my feet
    The softness on my soles
    Are made for walking down the street!

  148. For comfort and for style
    They’re perfect for my feet
    The softness on my soles
    Are made for walking down the street!

  149. My style has gone out the window since chasing after a toddler as have been opting for comfort instead… How I would love to bring the fashion back with a pair if Frankie4’s for winter – and I will also be super comfy! What a win-win! This could be a major turning point

  150. I desperately need new and comfortable ankle boots for work. I’m always on my feet on concrete and they need to be able to be styled with jeans and pants

  151. I’m going to be the size of a house this winter expecting baby number two so a pair of comfy pretty shoes would at least make me feel a bit better about the whale status! I have also been wearing the same boots for nearly 3 years and they are beyond dead and in need of retirement.

  152. I have worn out my last seasons boots to the point they have a hole in them, so a new pair of Frankie4 this winter would be magical and help my feet from getting wet.

  153. In my ongoing pursuit of cute, I’ve love to add these to my shoedrobe in the name of quality over quantity. For far too long, I’ve sacrificed comfort for style . . . it’s time to take a stand on feet lovingly booted in some quality footwear and walk on!

  154. I wish I was wearing a pair of these uber, stylish, comfy Frankie 4’s last week …instead I was wearing my beaten up old boots that I will now crown “the Boots of Doom”…walking down Queen Street mall my foot slipped out and I went down!!! The horror in the middle of peak hour lunch traffic!!!! I jumped up (nothing to see here everyone!!) and took a look at my boots to see the heel has completely worn through to the metal…no wonder I took a tumble!! I’m crushing on the LIZ boot in camel – swoon – so hoping these cute boots will be walking (or strutting) into my autumn winter collection xxxx

  155. With two kids under 4 and studying a double degree in nursing/midwifery full time I am ALWAYS on my feet! Whether it’s kinder or day care drop offs, getting to uni/lectures/tutes/labs, trying to fit in 12 weeks of full time placement while keeping the house slightly presentable, boring old grocery shopping, trying to balance the budget while I study instead of work, spending some quality time with my husband and walking he dog life is very busy at the moment and a comfy pair of fashionable shoes would absolutely make my year!!!

  156. I need new boots! Big time! And I have a mean budget this year because we are saving for Paris at the end of the year… so, winning would give me some new boots to swan around Paris in. Result! x

  157. I’d like to find a footware that can take me form my corporate job to a casual catch-up with friends and FRANKIE4s seems to have ticked all the right boxes.

  158. I have had a heel injury for over 6 months now & work on my feet all day. I want to throw out all my uncomfortable shoes & start over with a pair of stylish and comfort in a pair of Frankies to save my soles, I deserve it!

  159. Hey FRANKIE4s you could save my sole! I am looking for a sole to treat me right! Liz suede boot is calling my soul!
    We could walk around together without fear of hurting my tootsie, I wouldn’t be embarrassed to share my need for orothics. Style with a dress or jeans, I feel we would make a great pair.

  160. As I’ve recently discovered while in Melbourne’s rainy weather, my 3 pairs of walk-to-work ballet flats all have holes somewhere in the soles 🙁 I would love some foot-friendly AND fashionable shoes, and am absolutely loving the JANELLE loafer in black oily nubuck!

  161. Today was my last session of a six week stint with my podiatrist and we had the dreaded comfort shoe discussion. Now I love my podiatrist but i was very sceptical when she told me about FRANKiE4 Footwear. Well let me tell you……I was very wrong and SHE was very right! I would proudly wear a FRANKiE4 shoe and hopefully soon will.

  162. Having injured my foot over twelve months ago and having very broad flat feet, I now have to wear orthotics all the time. Frankie4’s are the ONLY Australian shoe that I’ve found that fit my orthotic so have saved my sole for all the walking I do but also saved my soul as I can still feel stylish in my Frankie4’s.

  163. Oh FRANKiE4 be still my beating heart because you have stolen it with the LiZ boot in black oily nubuck – so effortlessly stylish and chic. Just perfect as my new “go to shoe” with comfort + fashion these are a match made in heaven for this mumma of 3 trying to get her groove back…

  164. I’m almost halfway through my pregnancy and my feet are really starting to feel it! I already had not great feet (I have bunions from years of dancing – sexy!) but pregnancy and my feet are not friends!
    I’ve been on the lookout for some comfortable (and attractive) shoes to see me out the rest of my pregnancy and into the first months of my little ones life, I think these might be it. Tossing up between the Janelle and the Jodie for flats, and I am totally loving that Liz boot in black… too many good options!

  165. My poor old feet suffer because of my height – or lack there of! At 5 feet tall I love to wear a good heel but am yet to find a stylish comfortable, boot that can become a wardrobe staple that doesn’t make my feet and back ache! A pair of Frankie4’s could be all my heavenly dreams come true – 70mm of extra comfortable, gorgeous, stylish height!! Ahhhh Bliss

  166. These boots are stunning! With my third kid 6 months old, I’m on my feet, running around all day. They would be perfect to wear as I get back into my regular clothes!

  167. I just love Frankie4’s range there is something to match every occasion! I would love a pair of Frankie4 shoes to help me with the transition to my stand up desk option at work! They say sitting is the new smoking so I’m giving the stand up desk a go and what better way than to be standing on clouds in Frankie4’s!!

  168. I just love the whole Frankie4 range ! I find as I get older I need a much more comfortable shoe or boot. If I had a pair of Frankie4 boots for autumn and winter, they would save my sole !!!

  169. Wow, your post couldn’t have come at a better time. My wonderful DIY Dad came to my rescue last Winter & resoled my fav boots, save his soul! I’m just not sure they’ll make it through another Winter! These shoes would definitely save my soles this Winter! I’m sure they’d quickly become my new favs judging from what you’ve said about their comfort! Ps love your styling, especially with the tan boots – gorgeous outfit.

  170. As an RN, I have to say the ELLiE sneaker is calling out to me!! It’s always go, go, go and I imagine it would be sheer bliss to slide into a pair of these. Oh my, such a treat for happy feet!!!

  171. I am heading to Italy for a 2 week trip in May/June. Yes I know how wonderful, and it will be. But I know from previous experience that the long days of walking and exploring on the cobblestoned alleyways and streets of Rome with lots of walking up and down stairs in Positano combined with lots of standing and admiring ancient sights will wreak havoc on my feet and legs. Added to this is the need to look stylish when you’re a tourist in Italy. Frankie4s could save my (travellers) sole – I can just see myself in a pair of those beautiful Liz boots or the Janelle loafer – making me a stylish AND truly comfortable adventurer.

  172. I’m in my mid 20s and recently received the news that I need to wear orthotics. This now = orthotic-friendly shoes ONLY. I was also told that I would likely not find a shoe to fit the bill other than a runner or mary-jane style. As you can imagine, runners and/or mary-janes don’t really cover every occasion. I was so excited to see there was a company – in Bris no less – like Frankie4 that actually has some other options for people in my shoes (excuse the pun :P)! In fact, there are so many great options, but currently I’m drooling over the LiZ or the ElliE styles… please help to make my dream a reality and email me at [email protected] Can’t wait 😀

  173. My winter wardrobe is so dull and is in desperate need of an upgrade. I absolutely love the Frankie4 LiZ Camel boots, I tend to shy away from wearing heels these days as I just can’t find shoes that are comfortable and stylish but these would be the perfect solution to bring some ‘heel’ back into my very boring flat shoe life. Winning a pair Frankie’s would be the ultimate style injection I am desperately needing for my winter wardrobe. My soles need some sexiness, comfort and style = all this can be found in a pair of Frankies.

  174. I have yet to find a stylish winter shoe I can wear all day every day and instead go around with freezing feet because I am most comfortable in my sandals! Sandals don’t often look the best when rugged up everywhere else.. Save me from frozen feet and fashion faux pas this winter?

  175. I’m a stay at home mum with two little boys; one big enough to run off on me, the other immobile, but heavy enough to weigh me down so I can’t run. Would love love love some silver Ellie’s to help me look a bit spesh and also support my feet as I get my skates on

  176. As a University lecturer I spend hours on my feet talking to students and cover a lot of distance during the day running around a lab. I crave comfortable footwear and think that these boots would be stylish and amazingly comfortable to wear, especially during a two hour lecture!

  177. I have owned just 2 pairs of boots in my adult life and they were both as equally uncomfortable! I have not bought a pair since.. however after moving to Sydney recently and an upcoming winter holiday to Europe I fear I will have to venture into unknown waters and try desperately to find a comfortable pair (or 2!). If I were to win, it would certainly save my soles!

  178. Oh I would love a pair of Frankie4’s for work! I am a photographer who photographs houses which means lots of walking and climbing sometimes. My little ballet flats just don’t cut it. I would love a pair of JODiE’s to save my soles!

  179. Being third time pregnant and due in mid July, with all the foot and leg swelling that comes with being pregnant, and then losing it post birth, Frankie4 could well be my saviour to my changing feet dilemmas on the kinder runs for the next 9 months. Also being 6ft tall, I have fallen in love with the JaMiE boot. Definitely love at first sighting. Good luck everyone

  180. Oh my! I work as an ED nurse and purchased a pair of FRANKiE4’s Black Ellies… Slippers I tell you!!! Right from day one and that has never happened to me in the 20 years I have been on my feet constantly at work.. Talk about Soul/Sole Saving in a gorgeous pair of shoes!!!!!
    I am currently saving for a pair of FRANKiE4 Silver Ellies to take to the UK for my twin brother’s wedding in December, meaning I get to have 2 delicious, snuggly and most of all comfortable winters in 2015!!

  181. Hi Nikki, I have flat feet and find it impossible to wear heels for a long period of time. This means wearing thongs or ballet flats where I know I have to be walking around for anything over an hour!

    The cushioning and arch support will help immensely and I believe the FRANKiE4 LiZ boot (camel) would be the perfect addition to my shoe collection for this autumn/ winter season. Would love to win a pair or these comfortably fashionable boots from FRANKiE4!

  182. I haven’t been able to wear heels for years and I so miss them! I would love to be able to wear a boot with a heel and be comfortable in them. After running around after four children it is now my time to feel great in what I’m wearing instead of ” practical”.i would love a pair of frankie Liz boots

  183. After years of back pain I put down to carry three kids around a simple X-ray last week revealed I have scoliosis.
    I’ve been told to wear orthotics and almost cried when I saw the shoes at my local store.
    Thankfully for Google I have just discover FRANKIE4S! Fingers + toes crossed that Styling You + Frankie4s wil save my both my dignity + sole this winter x.

  184. I walk 5 kms each day (to / from work). My cheap ballet shoes are just not cutting it and with winter coming soon a beautiful pair of FRANKiE4 Footwear would make me and my feet oh so happy!

  185. I have a terribly sore back so when I go out with my Mum or sister for a day of shopping I’m usually in agony in a few hours and have to make them stop all the time so I can sit down. I’ve never found a shoe that I can wear for long periods of time that doesn’t cause me foot or back pain. I always steer away from heels or heeled boots because the pain would be terrible, BUT I’m a little shorty so I would love to be able to wear some heeled boots every day. I love love love the sound of these boots, the could be a life-saver!

  186. As a busy busy busy mum of three, Frankie4 could certainly save my sole. You’ve hit the nail on the head when you described that some days you are just too worn out to compromise comfort for style. The boots look amazing and will be a must have for me this autumn/winter. The extra features of the custom fit blew me away. I feel myself longing to slip my tired feet into something so comfy yet stylish. Good shoes are just to hard to find!!! Yet I feel the search may be over. Hooray! To win them would be absolutely amazing!!!

  187. Oh how timely! Ive just taken my ‘new season boots’ out on their maiden voyage today!! A few weeks ago I decided to sort out my weekday shoe wardrobe and get some comfy functional pieces I can run around in but that still look great (and didn’t cost the earth)_ After LOTS of online browsing I’ve bought a low black strappy wedge, a black cuban heeled chelsea boot, a pair of black snakeskin pointed flats that have a discreet mini-wedge & a cool pair of punched tan leather brogues. All outfit options sorted!

    I’m so happy I took the plunge and made the investment. Hopefully that will save my winter feet and keep me stylin’ at the same time.

  188. Congratulations Nikki on being the Frankie4 ambassador they always look stylish and chic on you.
    Frankie4s can save my plantar fasciitis feet and also my swollen knee replaced leg as they offer comfort and style and what’s not to love about that!

  189. Cool FRANKiE4 oily nubuck how can you go wrong in winter shoes made to support and cushion our feet. Like Marilyn Monroe said “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the World.”

  190. I love those Liz boots and the sneakers well and the loafers too. Haha can’t choose all beautiful looking shoes. As a mum running around after 3 kids 4 and under my feet rarely look stylish. I love that these combine practicality and comfort!

  191. Working as a nurse and on my feet all day the Eboni shoe would be perfect for my flat feet and knowing I can work in comfort would help to make my day more enjoyable in a very stressful environment. Thankyou Nikki for introducing this brand, a brand I had never heard of before until I saw them on your blog.

  192. These boots are made for walking (and jiving and standing and doing chores in style) and that’s just what I’ll do, one of these days these boots are going to walk all over Sydney and Melbourne and Brisbane too. Loving FRANKIE4 footwear especially the Autumn-Winter 2015 collection. My poor poor Retail worker feet need a little love right now. When I first saw the new Autumn-Winter collection, I went weak at my knees and tingly in my toes. I can see these boots quickly becoming my new bestfriend, supporting me in my 43 hour working week and comforting me after business hours, work hard but play even harder.

  193. My poor sad foot would love to be wrapped in the comfort and warmth of a FRANKiE4 boot this winter. Without this little piece of luxury I will be forced to wear tape for the rest of the winter 🙁

  194. I am sooo lusting after a pair of FRANKiE4 shoes and these boots are to die for! Since developing plantar fasciitis, my feet are in hell and I hear how good FRANKiE4 would be for my feet, but alas right now the price tag is prohibitive :(.

  196. Running after a toddler and newborn my feet get a work out so a pair of FRANKiE4 SOPHiE shoes would not only be a comfortable fit but help me look stylish as I got about my day. If the kids weren’t so young those LiZ boots would be amazing.

  197. Only in my 40s, yet with the feet of an 80 year old which are plagued with a plethora of problems, I had all but given up on both style and comfort being achievable. I have been absolutely dreading winter and shopping for closed in shoes! When I read this blog and found out about FRANKiE4 for the first time, it started my day with a spring in my step … which is no mean feat 😉

  198. Good morning Nikki, thank you, thank you, thank you for introducing me to FRANKiE4 Footwear. I think these will be my saving grace for my troubled feet. Nearly three years ago I developed plantar facia in my right foot which took 9 months to heal and now my left foot has developed it . To me this meant my extensive shoe collection was off limits and I thought ‘sensible’ shoes and no stylish choices was going to be my future in footwear. I’m on my feet all day as I work in a high end jewellery store, so we have to well presented and look professional. This range of shoes will help me dress from work to casual and anything else I can imagine…Ebony, Liza, Rosie and Jodie could all be coming to work with me I feel. What my condition means is when I get up in the morning I have to hop around until the tendons stretch out in my foot, it feels like someone slicing up the back of my heal , if I sit with clients through out the day and then get up again, I can’t walk. It’s impacted so much on my life it’s unbelievable. To be able to walk pain free is a dream and I think you have given me the answer. Again thank you for this , for me, life changing article .

  200. I’m travelling to Europe in the northern Autumn and love to walk as much as possible to really see the cities we visit. A pair of FRANKiE4s boots would solve my packing issues and ensure comfort as well as style by saving my soles on my travels.
    I can imagine strolling around the cobblestones of Gamla Stan in Stockholm looking and feeling like the most stylish locals.

  201. I NEED A PAIR OF FRANKIE 4 BOOTS! This winter will be my first prac for my teaching degree (that I started in 2010-insert 2 babies) and with my two little munchkins and studying full time and working Saturdays, it can be tricky to find the time and funds for me! Frankie 4 boots would save my soon to be teacher styling butt and allow me to step out in style both on prac and in the years to come when I have my own class!

  202. Hi Nikki, Working in a Fashion Boutique in Brisbane selling beautiful labels however I am on my feet all day .The FRANKiE4 Footwear boots will work obviously in 2 areas stylish and comfort and what a great conversation starter on where I got my shoes from!

  203. Frankie4 sneakers would save my soles running 12 conferences around the country in the next 3 months for more than 5000 high school students. Being on my feet from 7am to 3pm & literally running around the event each day to make sure all is well & the students have a good time but I need Frankie4s to save my poor sore soles – I NEED the black boots as well as the black sneakers LOVE LOVE LOVE Frankies

  204. Honestly as a mum to a ten month old I am still getting to grips with my new body. Walking with the pushchair a lot to encourage weight loss as well as chasing a small person on the move means functional footwear which looks good is a must. Those fringed liz boots are amazing!

  205. As you will see, my Frankie4 sandals have been saving my soles all over town in Summer! I am totally in love and definitely be needing them saved in Winter too. Plantar Fasciitis won’t slow down this retail genie with a pair of these babies soothing my soles!

  206. I’d resigned my tootsies to a life a boring flat shoes because of knee pain but I’ve fallen in love with FRANKiE4 footwear range since discovering them on this blog and I am dying to try a pair. Patricularly the LiZ boots- as we share the same name, it seems I was meant to have them in my life!

  207. FRANKiE4 Shoes would be soo amazing this winter, I would love to give these shoes a try as I really struggle with comfortable heeled boots (I have had dramas with my tendons and foot arches, as well as a curved spine just to top it all off- what a fantastic gene pool I come from :P).
    I would love the Liz Heeled boots in Black as I think that they would be the most versatile to incorporate with just about all of my outfits.

  208. In the Southern Highlands, fashion has to take a back seat to warmth in winter. But with Frankie4 boots, I could wear woolly socks and look stylish too!

  209. Hi Nikki, what an unbelievable asset these boots would be to my stylish life. I have undergone 6 spinal surgeries, the last being a success, however, I am limited now to getting the enjoyment from wearing a heel for too long. I miss the days when I want to dress up an outfit. But more importantly than style, I would love a winter boot to help my aching back and these sound like they are the first boot to offer my condition real life comfort.
    Thanks.

  210. I was very unkind to my poor feet in my teenage years, putting style before comfort, and now I’m paying the price. To have a pair of shoes that are as comfortable as they are stylish would be a dream! The FRANKiE4 Footwear JAMiE boot has my name all over them!

  211. With a teething 6 month old on my hands I’m finding we need to move constantly… Weather it be walking, bouncing, jiggling, dancing or the zombie shuffle after those long sleepless nights. Doing it in a comfy pair of FRANKiE4 boots would at least mean I’m at least doing it in style!!!

  212. My husband has just noticed that when I walk in my current boots, my ankles roll inward. Probably the cause of my hip pain. A pair of boots designed to fit my feet and look great would be absolutely perfect!

  213. My size 6 feet have carried this little Apple shaped body faithfully for 57 years, they get a little rough and ache a bit too much after a shopping day or a family day out. FRANKiE4 ELLiE could be my saviour and I and I’d feel a little bit fancy wearing them. Fingers crossed X

  214. Running around all day after a classroom of children is chaos for my feet! FRANKiE4 Footwear would help me to be a stylish and comfortable teacher. A hard accomplishment!

  215. As a new mum who has recently rediscovered her feet and ankles (after 9mths of swollen feet that barely fitted into thongs!) a pair of JAiME boots would be a practical yet funky way to walk into winter!

  216. So here’s my dilemma. I’m going to Europe in the spring with my new friend Ellie (Silver). But I feel so bad that Liz and Louise can’t come. I know Nina, Sophie ,Eboni Rosie,Jodie and Janelle will be up for a catch up when I get back, but I think Alix,Ivy and Julia are really upset by me overlooking them last summer ! Well it wasn’t entirely my fault, II didn’t know any of these girls before Nikki introduced me. I had to play favourites ( I chose Ellie) . but I really would like to expand my circle of friends.

  217. I’m on my feet all day working in retail, so a pair of Frankie’s would definitely save my soles. Are at the top of my wish list for this winter…style and comfort all in one!

  218. In January I was diagnosed with planta fasciltis. Needless to say as a self confessed “shoeaholic” it was awful not to mention very painful. I’ve been on the hunt for shoes that don’t look like something my grandmother would wear but also give me the support I need. I think I’ve just discovered them !! Thank you Nikki.

  219. I’ll be galavanting around Stockholm, so the comfier the shoes, the more I can explore the Swedish Summer (maybe in boots though, Swedish summer is still cold!)

  220. I developed the dreaded plantar fasciitis from my new and longed for salsa lessons. I’m desperate for a shoe that would mean a return to the dance floor! I’ll be checking out Frankie4 for sure 🙂

  221. I recently broke my toe and my podiatrist has recommended I wear sneakers daily until healed. Not really my thing until I came across the Ellie sneaker. Frankie4 Ellie sneaker would save my soul and my toe.

  222. Oh how Jamie would save my life, I could throwaway all my cheap leaking boots that I can feel every stone through the sole and wear fab, comfortable, gorgeous Frankie 4 boots every day!!!!!

  223. As my feet are my main transport (I don’t have a car) I need shoes that are not only stylish but hard wearing and comfortable too! Frankie4 looks like it would outlast the rest, I’d love to put it to the test!

  224. I think the FRANKiE4ELLiE will be my bestie for all the daily running around I do. Oh the people and places I could introduce her to, I bet she’ll have her own fan club happening in my neighbourhood!
    Thanks for discount offer too.

  225. As a Teacher Aide in a busy Prep classroom I am on my feet and running around all day every day. Boots are my winter wardrobe staple and a pair of Frankie4’s would save my soles this winter by being the comfort I need and the style I love all rolled in to one. They would also save some space in my shoerobe as I could toss out a few uncomfortable pairs that I insist on wearing for the look.

  226. An ankle injury a year ago makes for a painful day of shopping( or even worse working) but I reckon it would be easier in a gorgeous pair of LiZ boots. x

  227. Wow love love love the new range, being a mummy of three kids under 5 i am constantly on my feet running around after them, so i often just wear my thongs for ease and comfort which i wear everyday and i would like to dress up a little to feel i have a purpose and feel like me again so i would like to have a little bit of fashion and comfort on my feet. This would make me smile each and everyday 🙂

  228. My winter will not be dull, due to FRANKIE4 saving my soul in a pair of ELLIE silver metallic leather shoes!

  229. FRANKIE4s: well FRANKly I need them 4 Melbourne’s long, cold winter months to keep my feet warm and on tread (trend).

  230. Stylish shoes that are comfortable! Music to my ears!!! I live in my ankle boots in Autumn and winter and I end up paying the price for fashion, with sore feet and legs from hard boots that just aren’t meant for walking! I’d love a pair of those suede ankle boots that you’re wearing! Either colour. The perfect addition to any girls wardrobe! Congrats Nikki! What a great ambassador they chose. Every outfit looks amazing.

  231. Congrats on the new role, Nikki! A pair of the liz in black are in my shopping basket. Thanks for the Code!

    SSG xx

  232. As i walk to work, i can see comfort and no blisters. I think i just fell in love with a soul called Frankie ☺

  233. singing “I’m so excited”. I have terrible feet and can’t wait to try these. Even better, they’re local Brisbane!!!!!! Yew!

  234. I am a busy working Mum of 2 girls. Comfortable shoes are a necessary and to look stylish on all occasions is a bonus. Help save my soles.

  235. Oh my gosh yes! Music to my ears! I have horrible plantar fasciitis and cannot find shoes that allow me to even walk without pain. Winning a pair of these shoes would see my feet falling in love! And no pain!
