What does the fair2feet seal mean?
The fair2feet seal of quality is awarded after a successful audit of the shoe model.
The audit is conducted on the basis of the fair2feet quality system.
The fair2feet seal serves the customers of the shoe trade, online or statioinarily, as an aid in the search for a suitable shoe that meets their needs. You can find more information under fair2feet
How is the testing of the shoes carried out?
The completely independent fair2feet - Institute for Quality and Certification first performs a computer tomography scan of the shoe models.
On the basis of the CT images, a precise, non-destructive digital measurement of the shoe interior is then carried out. The results lead to the transparency of the inner dimensions of the finished shoe, measured in millimeters. By comparing the actual dimensions determined with the manufacturer's size specifications and with the recommendations of the relevant international standards (ISO), it is finally possible to assess the dimensional accuracy.
The shoes are then subjected to an orthopedic examination using the fair2feet criteria catalogue, which, together with a summary utility value analysis, leads to a final point value result. If the audit is successfully completed and a correspondingly high score is achieved, this is the basis for the award of the seal.
In principle, the fair2feet quality audit follows the same analysis steps. The evaluation within the scope of the orthopedic audit then sets special accents for comfort or comfort shoes, for example in the assessment of toe clearance, the rolling space or the ball width of the respective shoe model.
