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. OESH remains true, thousands of pairs later, to its founding mission–creating footwear to work with your body’s natural biomechanics. Years later, we’re still the only shoes 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.

OPTIMIZED 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 fit for OESH based on over two decades of analyzing female physiology. The OESH interior is an accurate woman’s foot shape – a wider, roomier forefoot area but narrower in the heel  – that together promote easy movement from your feet up and through the rest of your body.
