About Joya Shoes


Please Note - Due to trade licenses and agreements, we are unable to process orders we receive for Joya footwear from customers who do not reside within the UK or Ireland.

The concept behind Joya shoes comes from the simple premise that Human Beings are not designed to walk around all day on hard surfaces. Most high street shoes simply do not allow the foot to function in the way that it's supposed to in order to support and stabalise our muscle system. A consequence of this can lead to problems with our Locomotor System (the bones and muscles we use to move every day). Put simply - much of the everyday back ache we experience can be caused by the shoes we wear on our feet. Read more on our Joya Frequestly Asked Questions Page

 

Who is behind Joya Shoes

Joya operate from the lovely municipality of Roggwil, by Lake Constance in Switzerland. The creativity and design force behind Joya are Karl Müller and Claudio Minder. Karl Müller comes from the same pioneering footwear family who gave us Masai barefoot technology which revolutionised the shoe market. Claudio Minder has developed his reputation in the Swiss media as presenter and media expert.Together, their aim is clear, "We want to give our customers a shoe that sets new standards in the comfort sector when it comes to walking sensation and health benefits."

Soft supple surfaces take the stress off your Locomotor System

The positive effects of a soft springy surface when walking on our joints and muscles is a widely researched, applied and discussed principle in the medical world. Joya have developed a sole system which uses this principle to produce a soft and supple sole which helps distruibute the load on your feet more evenly as you walk and stand. The result is that when your heel strikes the soft Joya sole as you walk, your feet make tiny movements which in turn activate muscles that surround the joints in your feet, hips and back. The soft polyurethane sole provides fantastic shock absorbtion - helping to alleviate the pressure on your back whilst you walk and stand. Because your feet are constantly making these tiny adjustments when wearing Joya Shoes, this encourages better posture as your body naturally adjusts distribute the load on your feet more evenly.

The Technology

The core feature of the Joya shoe is the soft midsole which makes the shoes comfortable from the moment you put them on. Lots of Joya Customers tell us that this comfort was instant. The soft midsole is made from Polyurethane and will adapt to the natural shape of your foot as soon as you put them on. It's what surrounds this soft midsole that slightly changes the focus and purpose of shoes in the Joya range. Below is a summary of the sole technologies that Joya use and lists the styles we sell in that category. What you will see is that the Senso is the stable all round comfort shoe, suitable for most people. The Air sole category incorporates most of the professional range from Joya and includes the more active walking shoe range. The Curve is Joya's rocker sole and the Wave offers more ability to achieve a custom fit (either for extra depth or width, or for custom orthotics).
