SHOES MADE FOR WOMEN, BY A WOMAN.

After twenty years of research studying human motion and forces during walking and running, Harvard M.D. Dr. Casey Kerrigan developed OESH Shoes.

OESH makes uniquely healthy, eco-friendly footwear designed to complement the daily movements of an active woman’s lifestyle. Wherever you want to go, OESH takes you there comfortably, all day long.

SHOES MADE FOR WOMEN, BY A WOMAN.

After twenty years of research studying human motion and forces during walking and running, Harvard M.D. Dr. Casey Kerrigan developed OESH Shoes.

OESH makes uniquely healthy, eco-friendly footwear designed to complement the daily movements of an active woman’s lifestyle. Wherever you want to go, OESH takes you there comfortably, all day long.

HEALTHY BY DESIGN.

OESH is the only footwear you can buy that has been designed exclusively on principles of peer-reviewed medical science.

Dr. Casey Kerrigan’s (Harvard ’87) published medical research on human movement and the long term effects on the body of high-heels and other common features in women’s shoes became the scientific foundation of a better shoe design. From our very first styles that sold out long ago, OESHers have never stopped telling us they’re so happy Casey stayed true to her unique mission–creating footwear to work with your body’s natural biomechanics. Years later, OESH remains the only footwear made with this healthy design.

THE MAGIC IS IN THE SOLE.

The heart of footwear is the sole. That’s especially true for OESH.

Most athletic shoes are designed to cushion heel impact using toxic foam materials (typically, ethylene vinyl acetate), then control foot movement with contoured, one-size-fits-all footbeds. But heel impact isn’t when peak stresses and strains to the body occur, nor is it healthy to force all feet into rigid, generic forms.
In contrast, the OESH Sole is a gentle elastic spring, compressing when the foot is fully planted (at the instant the body’s measured stresses and strains are at their peak) and releasing energy in tune with your natural movement to the next step. Moreover, the OESH Sole is perfectly flat in all directions so your foot can move the way you choose to move, always promoting healthy circulation and muscle activity.

MADE FOR A WOMAN'S FOOT.

A wider forefoot and narrower heel than men.

Most women’s dress and athletic shoes have been designed by men. The result – poor fitting shoes for women that inhibit your foot’s otherwise natural motion – shows in the rates of foot and knee issues women develop. In contrast, Dr. Kerrigan created an entirely unique interior for the OESH fit from her over two decades of analyzing female physiology. Based upon an accurate woman’s foot shape – a wide, spacious forefoot area and a narrower heel – OESH promotes an ease of movement that begins in your feet, up and through the rest of your body.

FOR AN ACTIVE WOMAN'S LIFESTYLE.

Whether you’re running errands, working out, or just working, OESH are made for a woman’s foot—and body—with a unique woman specific fit above an elastic spring sole. The joy in wearing OESH is felt in every style we make – and OESH has a style for every occasion.

YOUR HEALTHIER SHOE CHOICE.

OESH has been chosen by thousands of women of all ages for virtually every type of activity we can think of. In addition, for many women, OESH is their shoe of choice for specific conditions such as:
