‘We offer a mobile shoe shop where we can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear‘
Jason, owner of Isle of Wight Feet, is a qualified surgical chiropodist / podiatrist and surgical shoe maker. Since qualifying as a chiropodist in 2000, he has been steadily building his domiciliary and surgery practice, and opened his shop in 2008. Apart from selling a range of shoes for the most discerning feet, Jason was taught orthopaedic shoe making by the late Pete Cortesi. In honour of Pete’s influence over many peoples lives across the island, Jason is holding the 19th independent (international) Shoe Makers Conference in Ventnor in February.
The team at IW Feet includes Kathie our podiatrist. Kathie trained in Germany and her family are orthopaedic shoe makers, and Fiona who has extensive experience in measuring feet. We provide a shoe measuring and supply service to care home and also individuals across the island. If you are confused as to the difference between the terms chiropodist and podiatrist, there is no difference – they are essentially the same word. But the best way to describe it is to say that all podiatrists can do chiropody but not all chiropodists can do podiatry!
Jason can help you with common foot problems, including ingrown toenails and bunions, pointing out: “Podiatrists are health care professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. We also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
Isle of Wight Feet sell other makes of comfortable shoes, as well as a small range of foot care products, including soothing, medicated and antiseptic foot creams to nourish and soften hard dry skin, and non-elastic Soft Top socks, insoles and hosiery.
