Sport Active™ 

Introducing our new Sport Active™ range featuring Viva and Vamos

Performance footwear for those with a more active lifestyle, with the support, comfort and fit of a Cosyfeet shoe.

Partnership with the University of Exeter

We have been working alongside the University of Exeter with the aim of developing a sports shoe designed specifically with the older foot and body in mind, while still retaining the roominess and comfort that Cosyfeet shoes are known for.

During sports activity, it is important to wear appropriate footwear to avoid injury; this is increasingly important the older we get. By conducting research on older people engaging in sports activities at the University of Exeter’s unique laboratory facility, we were able to establish the differences in how older adults move their feet and lower bodies during sport activities when compared with younger adults.

The result of our extensive studies is a true performance sports trainer offering all the necessary stability and cushioning to enhance an active lifestyle and minimise the risk of injury, without compromising on the special footwear characteristics required for extra-wide or vulnerable feet.

The Cosyfeet touch

Cosyfeet have been designing and manufacturing footwear for the older wearer since 1983, providing much wider, deeper and roomier styles than the wide-fitting footwear available on the high street. We wanted to apply our expertise into creating a sports shoe that provides foot protection, enough stability to prevent injuries, and a sole with just the right amount of grip. Combined with our use of high-quality materials, and advanced shoemaking techniques from expert craftspeople, the Sport Active™ range from Cosyfeet can encourage a healthier and more active lifestyle, for longer.
