Welcome to my Bared Footwear. I have a major crush on these fabulous booties. About ten years ago we lived in London and we didn’t have a car. So we walked – everywhere. At the end of that year my feet, knees and shins felt kaput. Really. So that point in time marked my journey with podiatrists.

And since then I have met some gorgeous people who know ever so much about healthy, happy feet. Making a change to my posture, back and knee positions via a simple orthotic for my feet has been a God send. But more recently it has been discovering quality footwear, designed and developed by a local Melbourne podiatrist, that has had me smiling.

Comfortable shoes that don’t cry Grandma or walking boot! Oh my. The biomechanics footbed that accompanies each shoe offers the ultimate in comfort. And in those heels or summer shoes, no one needs to know.

Anna Baird says:

Bared’s design ethos is about creating modern, classic styles that are wearable, timeless and trans seasonal.

As a podiatrist, I could never find stylish shoes to recommend to my clients. My background has helped me to understand the necessary features of a great supportive shoe and to develop a range of unique shoes that will optimise your gait without anyone ever knowing that you’re in “sensible shoes”
If anyone ever asks you what Bared Footwear is tell them that they are great looking shoes that are good for you!
Take a peek for yourself. You kind find them on their website or publishing on social media. They offer great service and work incredibly hard to get the fit right, even when you order online.

Suits & Style

 Suits.  I love a good suit. It is a uniform of sorts that can transform a bad day into a good one.
I have recently discovered Suits, the TV series starring Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams. The premise is an interesting one. A super smart college dropout talks his way into being hired as an associate for a top New York Law firm Pearson Hardman. A legal firm is the background, but essentially the television drama is all about relationships, how we communicate, whether we care and whether we need to win.
Harvey Spectre comes across as arrogant and full of bravado. But there is depth and complexity to him and his colleagues. And he looks sharp. As the series title suggests it is about suits – men in high end tailored suits and women who dress impressively. So good was this tailoring that Mr Porter – an online shopping mecca for well styled men – has collaborated with USA network’s hit television series to produce a pop up shop, and an app that helps you choose that special suit.

Mad Men brought retro style and design back into the average Joe’s living room, but Suits does this better. For that special man in your life, this could be the app that gives him that edge, a special ‘armour’
