Do you suffer from foot pain? You’re not alone. More than 2 million people a year seek treatment for plantar fasciitis, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Of those sufferers, 61 percent said the sharp, burning pain interferes with their daily lives and 54% said it impaired their daily work tasks.
Stegmann is here to help.
We recently surveyed 1,000 of our customersand found that many of you relate as sufferers from one or multiple types of foot pain: heel spurs, bunions, neuromas, neuropathy, back pain, high arches and fallen arches. Many of these conditions lead to back pain.
The good news: Our shoes can help. Arch support, lighter soles, shock absorption, heel support, and ample toe room are a few characteristics that make our shoe design ideal for people suffering from painful foot conditions.

“Bunion pain is relieved by wearing wider shoes with adequate toe room.”
“The most common treatment is to use a good arch support.”

Our new survey results break down which shoes YOU love for your foot challenges. Here are a few highlights:
If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, we can proudly say that because of the way our soles are constructed, we can recommend any style of Stegmann shoe to help relieve plantar fascia pain. Start with the Original 108 and similar wool and cork sole styles. Some come in both wide and medium fit.
Our wool clogs are great choices if you have a bunion (or two). We offer both the Wool Flex and the Original 108 in an American or Wide fit. The Wool Flex has the lowest profile toe support if toe bars irritate your feet.
Also known as Hallux Rigidis, arthritis of the toe can be incessantly painful. The Essenz has a wide and accommodating toe box that will not put excessive pressure on toes and the footbed does not flex significantly.
There are many reasons to research your footwear-- 26 reasons to be exact! In addition to 26 bones, there are 33 joints, 10 tendons, and 107 ligaments in each foot. Here at Stegmann, we love each and every one. We’ll continue to release new shoe designs with the same attention to comfort and support.

These clogs run large. For Women, we recommend sizing down 1/2 size for socks, and 1 full size for barefoot wear(recommended). Men's runs true to size.
Our Men’s wool clogs run true to size, but we recommend sizing down a half size for narrow feet.
The Liesl fits like a traditional women's dress shoe and does not have the same fit profile as our clogs. Order your normal dress shoe size. Some women found this style runs a bit large as it is soft and flexible. It is medium width, but can accommodate a wider foot. We recommend ordering your normal size, or sizing down if between sizes. For wider feet, order your normal size, or size up. Will loosen slightly with wear.
