Story 5

NEW foot-care concept store Arch Angel has opened in Singapore. Theoutlet, located at Delfi Orchard, offers a good range of stylish comfort shoes, foot accessories, personalised service and advice from co-founder and podiatrist Helen Crawford.

Said Tan Ee Leng, co-founder and managing director of Arch Angel: “For too long, Singaporean women have had to either make do with ill-fitting but stylish shoes, or comfortable but aesthetically unpleasing shoes. We have the answer to this problem and hope to change this mindset. We can have the best of both worlds — comfortable shoes can be stylish.”

Customers will have their feet measured to get the best-possible fit. “With more than 70% of women suffering from foot deformities, it is important to get the right fit to avoid foot problems in the future,” said Crawford.

Arch Angel is the exclusive distributor for comfort-shoe brands Xsensible, Naot and Oh! Shoes. It is also home to one of the most extensive collections of foot-care accessories in Singapore. Some
of the new products it carries include the 1000 Mile socks, which is a sock within a sock, eliminating friction on your skin and is ideal for dry, hard, callused skin.

The company also offers shoe sanitising services, using special equipment to eliminate bacteria and fungi. The store’s personalised service extends to inviting customers’ feedback and wish
list, to help source for products.
