Happy Fit Footwear was established in October 2019 by podiatrist, Jane Earl. Throughout her career she has shared footwear advice with her patients and understands the challenges many people face finding footwear to meet their specific needs. A compromise was often needed either on style or comfort. When introducing an orthotic to the shoe, or considering specific work place dress code requirements, achieving a ‘happy’ fit was even more difficult.
Jane and her husband Dr Clayton Clews, a podiatric foot and ankle surgeon, shared a vision for creating a destination footwear store specialising in stylish, comfort footwear. They wanted to establish a shoe store which would deliver the most comprehensive range of comfortable, stylish and orthotic friendly footwear in Canberra.
We pride ourselves on our extensive product range and ability to fit even the most difficult feet. Our product range has expanded to include a greater range of orthotic friendly footwear, enabling us to fit more difficult of foot shapes.
We also carry an excellent range of women's footwear in larger sizes.
The brands carried at Happy Fit Footwear come with the endorsement of Jane and Clayton’s combined experience of over 55 years in podiatric practice.
Jane is assisted in the store by a team of fitting assistants who have all been trained to measure and fit your shoes correctly. If you wear orthotics, let our friendly staff know and they will guide you to our extensive range of shoes with removable foot beds. Your orthotics may need to be narrowed or adjusted slightly to achieve the optimal fit. Talk to us and let us organise this for you.
The Happy Fit Footwear Shoe Pyramids
"No shoes are banned", says Jane. Much like the food pyramid, "it's all about balance". Choose shoes from the bottom most the time. Depending on advice from your health professional, you may be able to get away with styles further up the pyramid for other occasions.
