Our Brand Story
Born From Ambition
To help people suffering from common foot pain such as flat feet and plantar fasciitis to get maximum comfort when walking, the WalkHero brand was established in March 2010, specializes in the production of related foot products for patients with common foot pain symptoms and applying orthotics to each pair of shoes.
With the mission of providing the most technologically advanced comfortable shoes for arch patients, the first generation of WalkHero arch support insole was produced in May 2010. It features premium EVA materials, deep heel cups that cushion the impact of running and landing to prevent foot discomfort, and is compatible with all footwear. WalkHero orthotics sales exceeded 1,000,000 pairs in 2012.
The first generation of the 03 series of arch support slippers for men and women was born. This collection features premium canvas upper and innovative orthotics for a stylish look that helps support the foot and provides the ultimate comfort, greatly suitable for indoor and outdoor activities.
Then came the 03 series of the second generation of arch support slippers for men and women. Featuring a leather upper, velvet lining, non-slip rubber sole, and ergonomic orthopedic insole for arch support and heel protection. The fashionable appearance is suitable for all occasions.
Sales of the 03 series of supportive slippers successfully exceeded 2 million pairs. Based on the 03 series, WalkHero continues to vigorously develop the 04 collections of arch-support casual shoes. The 04 series ingeniously incorporates wear details and has a foldable heel design that could be worn as a slip-on or turned into slippers. Fashionable and elegant, it is the best shoe companion for home, office, parties, and other events.
An innovative line of orthopedic functional sneakers has been officially launched, featuring ergonomic orthotics, a light-cushioned EVA midsole, a wide toe box, and breathable antibacterial fabric that relieves multiple foot discomforts and keeps you comfortable throughout the day.
For the brand's sustainability, WalkHero has launched a recycling scheme. Instead of throwing it away, leave it to us. Consumers can get discounts on their purchases by mailing back used shoes. We’ll donate or recycle your used WalkHero shoe to make sure it lives on, even when you're done wearing it.
