"Our Products"
Our "Rosio" series of health shoes contain a revolutionary feature that helps control lower back pain as a result of the unique shape caused by the cutting out of the heel. The secret is in our sole, designed on a 15 degree angle. While stabilizing the centre of gravity, the back muscles are naturally stretched, effectively increasing power in the lower half of the body carried out by muscles which are not normally used. "Rosio Gold" shoes are designed to meet the walking habits of the elderly, with a lower angled sole design and light construction.
