Ellie is awarded Fellowship from the Society of Shoe Fitters October 02 2016
I'm proud and honoured to have been awarded the title of Fellow, the highest accolade that can be awarded by the Society of Shoe Fitters, in recognition of my work educating people about foot health, shoe fitting, and the consequences of wearing ill-fitting footwear.
In October 2015 I lobbied MPs in the Houses of Parliament regarding the state of the nation's foot health, highlighting the costs being incurred by healthcare services including the NHS.
So many foot health problems can be prevented by wearing correct footwear. This doesn't mean you have to choose boring frumpy shoes, thankfully there is now a wide choice of good quality, well-made shoes that fit properly and support the foot.
