OESH is the only footwear you can buy that has been designed exclusively on principles of peer-reviewed medical science.
Whereas most women’s shoes jeopardize your long term health by increasing impact on the joints in your body, OESH Shoes are uniquely designed to enhance innate strength, movement, and function, promoting total body health and wellness.
The scientific foundation of all OESH shoes is the published, peer-reviewed medical work of OESH founder Dr. Casey Kerrigan, a Harvard M.D., whose groundbreaking research studied the effects of common features of women’s shoes on the body–beyond the foot. From our very first styles that sold out long ago, OESH, uniquely, remains true to its mission of Healthy By Design.
