Everybody loves a good food massage. Some people swear by acupressure on various points of their feet, citing all sorts of holistic properties and stimulation points that correlate to all sorts of areas of the body. But now there’s a shoe that contains technology that relates to the concepts of reflexology: the New Italia “Air on Feet” collection.
I have to admit I’m always a little skeptical of eastern-medicine philosophies. But I can safely say that whether you buy into the concept of reflexology or not, the New Italia shoes FEEL great.
Perfect for both casual and more formal wear, the “Air on Feet” collection is handmade from the finest Italian leather, and the soft leather footbed is incredibly comfortable. My favorites are the Kosumi Toe in white/beige – it can go with any outfit for a casual outing, and the Twister in black leather. If you’re looking for a really comfortable dressy, low-heeled shoe, this is the one!
The arch support in the collection provides support while relaxing the foot and stimulating reflexology points. Reflexologists believe that this stimulation can improve energy circulation and be of great benefit to vital organs. It’s the same principle as acupressure; if you press on certain points in your foot, other parts of your body may benefit besides your foot! I don’t know how to evaluate if this is really working anywhere else in my body, but it definitely feels good on my feet.
Another great design aspect of the Kosumi Toe: it contains an adjustable buckle toe strap. This way you can customize exactly how tightly or loosely you want that part of the shoe to fit. I’ve never seen this done on any other flip flop-type shoe, and I think it’s a fantastic idea.
The “Air on Feet” collection is currently composed of the Kosumi Toe, Kosumi Scuff, Twister, and Capretto. Watch for more designs to follow! Discover how principles of reflexology can make your feet feel GREAT with these shoes.
