Our sneakers: questions och answers
Tell us more about Stinaa.Js sneaker collection?
We have several models, for both women and men. Our most popular styles are the all-around sneaker Nelly for women and Hugo for men. These are our most classic styles. For the most comfort and orthopedic effect we have the chunkier styles with the rolling function, Nova for women and Lucas. If you have injuries or acute pain, these are what we usually recommend to begin with.
What distinguishes your sneakers the most?
Our sneakers orthopedic and stylish, like the rest of our footwear. We want our products to make you feel better, to prevent and to treat overuse injuries in their different forms. We also want you to feel confident and beautiful in our shoes.
Do you have the same orthopedic insoles in your sneakers and high-heeled shoes?
The way you move in sneakers and heels differs a lot, that is why we developed two orthopedic insoles, one for the heeled shoes, and one for the low shoes, as sneakers and low winter shoes.
What is the difference between the different orthopedic insoles in Stinaa.J´s high-heeled vs. low-heeled shoes?
The difference is that the insole that is developed for high-heeled shoes is optimized for the position of the foot in high heel, which looks completely different than in a low shoe. The orthopedic requirements for the heels are way tougher.
What materials in the sneakers?
Apart from the many materials we include in our insoles, we use only special selected leathers from Italy, Spain and Portugal.
Where are your sneakers made?
Our orthopedic insoles are manufactured by Bauerfeind in Germany – our trusted partner of many years. The shoes are then assembled around the insoles and manufactured in the trusted factories in Northern Portugal.
What do your customers say about your shoes?
What we hear the most is “thank you”. Many are free from the overuse injuries and pain. Some of them are genuinely surprised and wished they knew better before. We are proud of our product, this is what keeps us going.
How do you price your sneakers?
Like the rest of the industry. What we have to offer is the advanced insole and our patented technology that we spent years developing. Our insoles alone would cost 2,500 sek towards the end-consumer. Then we have the shoe itself and we deliberately chose to produce in Europe – close to home, genuine craftsmanship. All of this makes the price tag higher, but you know what you get.
What is the difference between Stinaa.J sneakers for women and men?
Mainly, the shape of the last. Women ´s feet are anatomically different from men’s – women normally have a narrower heel and mid-foot. We aim for the best possible fit.
Can men use your women’s sneakers?
Yes, absolutely, if you are under size 41 and have a narrower foot.
