Sunnystep was created in 2019 to help every body move freely and happily, starting with the most comfortable and stylish orthopaedic shoes. For our founder, Ting, a traumatic postpartum spine injury changed the way she walked, stood and sat forever. The excruciating pain she had to endure on a daily basis for years taught her what’s most important in life, a healthy body so that we can pursue the life we want, and love the people we love.
Ting needed comfortable, supportive shoes, and the options out there did not meet her standards. Turning her pain into purpose, she decided to make her own shoes, diving deep into the world of anatomical and orthopaedic shoes, determined to make them as stylish as they are comfortable and supportive.
At Sunnystep, our vision is a world who understands and experiences the life-changing magic of a good pair of shoes and gratitude for a healthy and mobile body.
Every prototype is created through empathetic design-led thinking. We are committed to innovating every aspect of a shoe, from stitiches to formulas in every single product. Put simply, we deliver high performance. To achieve this, we consulted with the leading material chemists, orthopedics, and industry experts all over the world and take feedback from our customers continously to create prototypes that are continuously improved upon.
Our cloud cushioning technology is designed for stable arch support, which means it won't sink over time like traditional foam used in most shoes. We invented accupressure massage points on our insoles that gently relieves muscle tension throughout the day. Velvet padding ensures a smooth slip on and makes it anti-blister from Day One. Our formula is created for durability and lightweightedness, extending the lifetime of our shoes while minimizing stress on our feet.
