The Heart and Sole of Foot Health - with Suey Cooper

Show notes

In Episode 46 Gabby speaks with Suey Cooper about the impacts of footwear on our health.

If you're curious about what barefoot shoes are, or you already wear barefoot shoes to support your foot health & you're wondering where to buy barefoot shoes, you'll appreciate this conversation!

Suey has been in & around the footwear industry for almost 20 years alongside her husband Gary Cooper. Together they founded Sole Distribution, prioritising education around the effect that shoes have on peoples' health. They believe in meeting people where they are & working with the individual, while their mission is to help educate the community on foot health to encourage transition towards healthy & sustainable movement. 

Suey & Gabby discuss:

  • Why a personalised approach is integral for choosing the best footwear for you

  • A comparison of barefoot shoes vs regular shoes

  • Interesting insights into the footwear industry

  • Restoring foot function & correcting long-term biomechanical issues & injuries is not an overnight fix

  • When it comes to our foot anatomy, if you don't USE it, you will LOSE it!
