Crafted for comfort

Ziera’s layers of comfort

At Ziera, we've always been passionate about how our shoes fit and feel. Years of experience, and a deep knowledge of materials and the intricate mechanics of the foot, has enabled us to develop our own shoe comfort technology.

We design and engineer shoes from the inside out

The contour of the shoe mould is critical to achieving a great fitting shoe. At the physical heart of our products lives the 'last' (the mould we form footwear around). This leaves behind an invisible impression, a unique contouring which cradles the foot for all day comfort. We’ve been designing ‘lasts’ for over 70 years since our founders, two podiatrists, first started the company. Where most shoe companies use a standard universal mould, we specially design our own unique lasts to create maximum fit and comfort.

We believe the best fit and comfort are created using natural materials – such as leather that moulds to your feet – and a design with adjustability and versatility that adds to a personalised fit. Ziera’s premium leathers, sourced from around the world, endure 13 different laboratory tests to ensure that they are super soft yet tough enough for every day wear.

A major focus for Ziera is the wide range of orthotic friendly shoes with styles to suit any lifestyle. From women's casual shoes to dress shoes, walking shoes to corporate classics, Ziera orthotic-friendly shoes have extra depth and a removable inlay to accommodate a custom orthotic.

Shoes need more than just depth to be good for feet. That's why we offer plenty of options with adjustable fit, generous width, roomy toe areas, padded toplines, rocker soles, strong steel shanks and the support you need.

We love orthotics
