We value good quality materials, superb craftsmanship and great design. All of our designs come in small quantities and they often sell out. We design and prototype all of our products in our studio in Copenhagen, and we work closely with our factories to shape the final product. Our fabulous range of footwear has been crafted with the wearer in mind, incorporating soft memory foam insoles and perfectly positioned heels, to create something that not only looks fantastic but is also a joy to wear.
Memory foam - What makes your Lola Ramona shoes so comfortable:
Our shoes aren't just pretty, they're designed to both make you - and your feet - happy. The soft insole included in all of our styles, that cushions every step you take, is called memory foam. It works like a trampoline, giving you a bounce to your step, relieving the pressure on your heels and the ball of your foot.
As the foam moulds to the shape of your feet, it increases stability. In combination with a correctly designed shoe, memory foam adds support to the arch of the foot and cradles the heels, absorbing the friction and shock from walking.
We want you to want to keep walking in our shoes - especially our heels. Memory foam creates a personalized footprint within your shoes.
Heels - Why is the positioning of the heel so important?
If you've ever walked in a pair of shoes with incorrectly positioned heels, you know how hard it is on your feet. A heel should be placed so that you feel perfectly balanced, and feel like dancing, running or even... playing a game of soccer.
The key to a well-positioned heel is a correctly contoured heel seat and world class padding. When a heel is positioned correctly, the weight on your foot is distributed evenly, allowing you to walk with your entire foot instead of tiptoeing, which is tough on ball of your foot and your toes. All of our heels are positioned in this way, which is why even our very high heels feel comfortable.
A well-positioned heel improved the alignment between your feet, knees, hips, and lower back.
Flats - What's the secret to our comfortable flats?
If the upper part of a flat shoe is not properly designed to match the sole (the bottom parts of the shoe), you will have a difficult time walking comfortably. The density of the outsole is especially important. If it is too soft, it will not be supportive... if it is too hard, it will be inflexible and make your feet ache when you walk. The soles of Lola Ramona flats include a combination of materials with different densities, to keep that perfect balance of softness and flexibility.
The heel counter is also an important part of a comfortable flat, it holds the back part of your foot in place, reducing friction or sliding. We always use a soft PVC counter piece, ensuring there are no hard edges, while giving you the stability you need.
