For over 20 years, Step Forward SA has been serious about total body alignment, from the ground up. The unique design of Soft-Step® Foot Correctors provides dynamic and effective support for the foot and body posture. Most foot supports are made to fit the unbalanced or troubled foot – Soft-Steps® realign the foot correctly, supporting all 3 arches – medial, lateral and transverse. The flexibility and movement promote positive change and foot fitness. This is foot gym!
The Soft-Step® story begins many years ago, when a keen, orthopedic foot specialist, using foot soldiers for study, designed an arch support, which most closely resembles and supports the bone structure of the human foot. The flexibility, a vital component, enables every foot to conform to the ideal, just as bad surfaces break down normal function.
Step Forward was founded in 1974, in the USA, by Roxanne Kimber. After suffering with back and shoulder problems and exploring many avenues for relief, Roxanne found the Soft-Step® inner sole, which provided her with much sought after relief. Roxanne founded the Step Forward company in Seattle and started distributing the supports to local doctors and clinics. Through the years many other products surfaced, but none with the integrity and reliability of the Soft-Step®. Perfected, manufactured and distributed globally by Step Forward USA, the Soft-step® combines masterly design, superior, virgin materials (hence transparency), top notch technology, and precision engineering.
The Step Forward company has grown phenomenally and now distributes in many countries worldwide. Soft-Steps® provide relief and correction of foot and posture problems for more than 95% of people fitted! Soft-Steps® are worn, and enjoyed, by young and old, foot sloggers and sports people… in fact, people of every age and from every walk of life. The product has no equal and wearers testify to incredible results – alleviation of foot pain and posture problems, improvement in blood circulation, as well as in muscle tone and activity.
In 2004 Step Forward South Africa began importing these arch supports. Soft-Step® Foot Correctors have brought to South Africa the ultimate in active arch support and foot rehabilitation. Being flexible and dynamic, Soft-Steps® get to the root of the problem, correct the foundation and stabilize the entire musculoskeletal system, enhancing foot fitness in a way which no shoe, or exercise program is able to do.
