While California Footwear Company may be new to you, their footbed has been 17 years in the making. Prototypes after prototypes were developed, culminating in the footbed that is sold today. And they are equally proud to offer the Featherlight collection, which features a super-light, compression-molded EVA footbed whose shape is based on their famous cork footbed. California is a destination like no other. Californians are known for our focus on health and well being, cutting-edge fashion, outdoor activities, and a connection with the people around. California Footwear Company's mission is to combine all of the best that California represents into high-quality footwear for people who care about their foot health. The ergonomic footbed is shaped like your foot - not an arrow - allowing room for your feet and toes to function as they should. The deep heel cup helps "focus" the natural shock absorbing pad on your heel. The deep heel cup also helps provide a neutral plane (no elevated heel) to the sandal, which benefits your posture. Think barefoot, but with better arch support.
