Introducing Elanothene®
Our Trademarked EVA Cushioning

Inspired by the Australian Aboriginal word Elanora, meaning 'home by the water' or 'home by the sea,' our trademarked Elanothene® cushioning technology lies at the heart (and sole) of Freeworld Australia's footwear collection. 

Specifically engineered to deliver therapeutic cushioning, our proprietary Elanothene® compound offers optimal forefoot protection and impact absorption during Walking for unmatched Comfort and Recovery.

Walk with Australia

Walking is a powerful form of therapy, with multiple health benefits – physical and mental. You could say walking has inspired our entire collection.

Walking 10,000 steps daily is the recommended daily target for healthy adults – and it’s what keeps us young at Freeworld.

We walk to or from meetings. With the kids. Without the kids. Up the stairs. Down again. With the dog. With the sweetheart. With granny. To the pub. From the café. Ten minutes here, 25 minutes there. We walk any opportunity we can. We fight the urge to be lulled into the convenience of a car, or the social pressure to get somewhere faster.

When you walk, you notice little things. Think new thoughts. Unwind a little. And come back with your worries lessened, self-esteem up and mood boosted for the day.

Get into your stride

At Freeworld, we know many people suffer from acute heel, nerve and joint pain in the feet. And we’re on a mission to help.

The thing is, common foot problems such as plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia are hard to shake.

That’s probably because the average person will walk around 120,000 km in their lifetime, according to Healthline – often while wearing incorrect footwear and not exactly getting younger.

But it helps to take a break from intensity and walk instead – especially with the right foot gear. Customers tell us* our shoes offer relief from common foot problems including:

Plantar fasciitis – this inflammatory pain of the plantar fascia, on the bottom of the foot, is linked to a range of factors including predisposition and over-intense activity. Freeworld’s extra arch support helps provide relief.

Metatarsalgia – inflammation of the metatarsal bones, which may be caused by medical conditions and factors including an over-intense sports regime or wearing incorrect footwear. Freeworld’s shock absorbing soles and extra arch support help provide relief.

Blisters and corns – recovery is a guiding principle for each Freeworld shoe, and we’ve developed skin-soft, lightweight and airy uppers across our collections to alleviate uncomfortable skin conditions such as blisters, corns and athlete’s foot.

From personal experience, we also recommend regular care such as foot massage, ice to alleviate swelling, feet against wall to restore blood flow, and seeing a doctor when the discomfort continues.

* Yep, customers really do tell us that! We’re working on the clinical evidence part.
