Criteria for footgear certified by Keiro Yuasa

Keiro Yuasa's certification of footgear is a sign of quality and ensures that all products offered on our site are good for foot health. We have created our Footgear criteria to highlight the products we believe will be most helpful in supporting long-term foot rehabilitation and recovery.

Our standards for the footgear we carry in our stores are very strict and we only carry products that we ourselves use or have determined will help our patients achieve and maintain optimal foot health. The criteria for listing products on our site (including the Halmek mail order site) and obtaining Footgear certification are as follows

Criterion 1

Footgear must offer the potential for significant benefits to foot health.

Criterion 2

Footgear must conform to our philosophical approach to foot health, structure and function.

Criterion 3

Footwear must respect the normal and natural shape and anatomy of the foot.


Standard 4

Footwear should be comfortable, durable, and good for foot health.

Standard 5

Footgear must work in conjunction with other items we offer to create synergistic foot health benefits.

Standard 6

Footgear should give the user confidence and enable them to regain optimal foot health.

We put your long-term foot health first,We want you to shop with confidence.We think it is a great idea. If you see or try a foot product that you think would be a good addition to our product line, please let us know. We are always looking for new products that provide long-term support for foot health in a natural way.
