Healthcare From the Feet Up
Featuring triple hooks for a snug fit, washable fabric for easy maintenance, and short boot style for increased ankle mobility, LINN-S represent Japanese wisdom at its very best. However, LINN-S’s true value lies in the tremendous health benefits they provide.
This style of footwear separates the big toe from the other toes, giving you the sense of walking in your bare feet. Moreover, this footwear actively prevents painful bunions and their symptoms thanks to the fabric separating the toes. In ancient times, Japanese people never experienced bunions because traditionally they wore Japanese sandals called zori or tabi.

Misalignment Leading to Bunions
“Misalignment” in this case refers to a loss of bone alignment that forms the arches in our feet (i.e. plantar arches). Arches are formed by many bones located in the toe that lead to the ankles. If the proper structure or angle is lost, troubles will develop which inevitably lead to other problems in our day-to-day life. Bunions develop when you continue to wear poorly fitting footwear if your arches are genetically poorly structured. This will cause alignment problems. Even if bunions develop, some people do not experience any pain that is normally associated with them. So there are people who continue to wear poorly fitting shoes, pain-free, even after they have developed bunions. However, if left untreated, misalignment will worsen and the pain may become so debilitating that you can no longer walk. In worst case scenarios, your big toe can be pulled out of its joint. LINN-S has adopted a design that separates the big toe from the other toes, thereby allowing the muscles which move the big toe to be used in a more flexible fashiony. This enables you to feel as though you are walking in your bare feet. This will control your foot motion and posture to prevent misalignment , and the development of bunions.
Do you find yourself often forgetting things? If so, your working memory may either not be operating at its best, or it may have reached its maximum capacity.
In the East, it is often said that the soles of the feet are directly connected to the brain, and that walking in bare feet relieves stress, sharpens awareness, and stimulates cognitive function. The soles of LINN-S are designed to be thin to make you feel as though you are walking barefoot. They allow the bottom of your feet to be directly stimulated, thereby helping activate our brain power.
Heel Deformities Cause a Variety of Troubles
If you have neck, shoulder or back pain, one primary cause may be related to the bottom of your feet. We often unconsciously have poor posture that places a burden on our feet, which in turn has a negative effect on our skeletal system. It is very important to keep the correct posture to maintain our health. Indeed, the bottom of our feet, especially the heel bone, is a particularly important part of our body. If the heel bone tilts inward, this status is called “pronation.” If it’s angle is abnormally large, it is called “excessive pronation,” which causes the physical malady called flat feet. As the load-bearing point shifts to the big toe side, bunions often worsen. Excessive pronation may also give rise to hallux rigidus (stiff big toe) where the base of the big toe aches. Another potential ailment is osteoarthritis of the knee in which. the cartilage in the knee-joint becomes worn down. There is also a potential for plantar fasciitis which causes great pain in the arch and heel of the foot. In contrast to pronation, when the heel bone tilts outward, it is called “supination.” If its angle is highly abnormal, it is called “excessive supination.” People with excessive supination tend to have abnormally steep plantar arches. This causes “high arch”, a condition in which you might experience pain at the root of the toes. LINN-S keeps your heels straight by properly aligning them, ensuring that our big toe maintains the correct range of motion to prevent bone dislocation and skeleton misalignment. LINN-S will help you stand upright in the correct posture, one which is naturally beautiful for human beings, and which improves vital functions.
