Lovers of sneakers, listen up. The FRANKiE4 Footwear sneaker collection continues to grow, offering something for everyone’s foot shape and style preference.
With the expanded range, one of the most asked questions in the Styling You community has been: “which sneaker is right for me?”
The truth is there is no definitive answer to that question. Style is a very personal thing and, as I’ve learned, our feet are very different too. When it comes to finding footwear that is good for your feet and legs, it’s not just about finding your size; it’s about understanding the shape of your foot and what style/s work better for you and your lifestyle.
FRANKiE4 founder (and podiatrist and physiotherapist) Caroline McCulloch has made it her life mission to create shoes that are comfortable and supportive but look great too.
As always, if you have any niggling foot issues, please book in to see a podiatrist. Apart from only wearing FRANKiE4 shoes, this was the best decision I ever made for the health of my feet.
In the video series below, I’ve worked with the team (including stylist Cate Massi from Individual Style 101) to show you the difference between all the sneaker styles currently available at FRANKiE4. We also show you how the sneaker doesn’t just need to be a casual shoe option, with dress-down and dress-up style inspiration.
Each video runs for about one minute, so sit back, turn on the sound and enjoy.
Custom Fit pack
This pack comes with every FRANKiE4 Footwear sneaker, brogue and boot. It allows you to adjust the fit of the shoe to suit your individual foot shape.
ELLiE is the original FRANKiE4 sneaker. She has a cult following because of the way she is shaped like the natural shape of the foot. Shop ELLiE HERE. The new ELLiE black pinned as featured here will be available online next week.
NAT brings a sleek, sporty edge to a sneaker. She comes with an elasticated gusset, allowing you to wear her without laces. Shop NAT HERE.
The JACKiE brings a little retro vibe and a whole lot of comfort. You might feel more at home in a JACKiE if your foot is slightly wider as she’s got a higher heel counter and a wider fit. Shop JACKiE HERE.
POLLY is your minimalist go-to for the warmer months. She has a sleek silhouette on the foot. Shop POLLY HERE.
SOPHiE is a cult FRANKiE4 fave. She has all the benefits of wearing a closed-in sneaker but with the versatility of being able to slip her on and go. Shop SOPHiE HERE.
Like SOPHiE, HANNAH offers the ease of a slip-on shoe. She has sleeker design, a rounded toe and the laser-cut leather detailing on some styles makes her a fabulous warm-weather option. Shop HANNAH HERE.
The FRANKiE4 customer service experience
FRANKiE4 Footwear has two beautiful concept stores in Brisbane – at Indooroopilly and Windsor. If you live in south-east Queensland, a visit to either of these stores is a must. They are gorgeous spaces and home to the full range of FRANKiE4 shoes but you also get access to the most experienced fitters in the business.
Don’t live nearby? Do not panic. You can buy online with confidence. The customer service team is beyond amazing. They are there to help you make a decision that works for your feet and your lifestyle. Call them first if you’re unsure about what styles might work for you. Phone 1300 721 898 or email [email protected]. When buying, Australian standard shipping is free, you have 30 days from the date of purchase to exchange or return shoes provided they are in as-new condition and FRANKiE4 Footwear also covers return shipping. This applies to non-sale items only.
Making a difference
FRANKiE4 Footwear believes in giving back to its community. The net proceeds from the sale of three packs of “hidden” sockettes (these really do stay in place on your feet while wearing sneakers) go to support Brainchild Foundation, which aims to help children who are affected by brain and spinal cord tumours, and their families. Shop the sockettes HERE.
