Precious Soles is proud to be a stockist of Xsensible footwear here in the UK.

The benefits of wearing Xsensible.

Why we love the brand, and how it can help you.

The unique sole technology optimises your posture, reducing the burden on your joints. Because of this, your foot will roll naturally, and pressure will be distributed.

Fashionable shoes in wider sizes.

For wider feet, Xsensible has developed an extensive range in wide sizes, from elegant lace-ups to airy sandals.

Shoe-fitting and in-house clinics.

Come in and be prepared to rediscover your comfort. It’s important that you get a reliable measurement and expert advice. This is what our fitting service is about. We believe that even those with conditions such as bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, and hallux rigidus – to name a few – can reap the benefits of Xsensible shoes.

You have a dedicated, trained fitter who will listen to your needs and wants. They will discuss with you any foot, lower limb, and back issues that need to be considered. Further consideration is given to any medical information from a medical professional, prescription, orthotics, or splints.

We assess your walking style, your gait, and take 3 different measurements while considering your foot shape and proportions.

If we notice anything that may need addressing, we can refer you to one of our medical partners.
