Our feet not only keep us grounded and balanced but they have an important role to play in our overall health. Christina Cannes discovers ways to ensure your feet help you to live a healthy and comfortable life – and still be fabulous! 

Did you know that your own two feet make up 25% of the body’s bones, 18% of joints and 6% of the muscles! Doing damage to any of these parts can cause serious harm to our bodies and sacrifice enjoyment of daily activities. Our feet are the ones that get the most wear and tear and the wrong types of shoes can mean that even regular pressure and movement will not only leave your feet sore but can also affect your knees, hips and entire spine. If your feet are hurting, your shoes may be doing long-term damage. You may not think about it now, but that pain could be setting you up for a future full of undue pressure, pain or stress that will impact your joints, tendons, muscles, joints and more. 

Footwear affects how the foot moves and how much pressure the body takes with each step. It also has the ability to make women feel powerful and beautiful. So it is important that we choose wisely! Help is at hand (or afoot) with Queensland-based Frankie4 Footwear that has revolutionised the market by designing healthy on-trend fashion footwear. 

Founded by Podiatrists and a Physiotherapist, the FRANKiE4 Team builds on its heritage and continues to revolutionise the way footwear is designed. The label provides women with a healthier option for on-trend footwear and is exclusive to Feet First in Noosa, who have been serving the region’s best-dressed and most comfortable feet for more than two decades.   

According to David Garozzo, Frankie4 stockist and owner of Feet First Noosa in Hastings Street, Frankie4 provides function and fit to support your feet – but with style.  

“Customers love the comfort and the range caters for all age groups.” he said.  

 Along with comfort pumps, Frankie’s active flats are dual density polyurethane which means they provide a softer layer for cushioning as well as a firmer layer for durability. Each enclosed shoe also comes with a custom fit kit to ensure whether your feet are narrow, wide or standard, each shoe fits your foot.  

Put your feet first and make sure you’re sporting footwear that’s both stylish and comfortable.   


  • Put comfort first and make sure the shoes don’t pinch or rub 
  • Have your shoes properly fitted 
  • Look for support for your heels, forefoot and arches and shoes that provide plenty of cushioning  
  • Consult a podiatrist if you experience ongoing aches, pains or symptoms 


Join us for our Feet First Footwear Fashion Soirée an evening exploring the fashionable world of footwear at Feet First Footwear on Hastings Street.  

You’ll enjoy a glass of bubbly and canapes as the Fashion Editor of IN Noosa Magazine, Carlie Wacker, takes you through the new and innovative footwear designs for men and women from Frankie4, Ecco, Revere, Sperry, Merrell and Rockport. 

 Fashion parade will be followed by a personal styling session with Carlie and professional fitting by owners David and Suze Garozzo. It all starts at 5pm!
