Memory Foam Shoes

What Are Memory Foam Shoes?

We’re all looking for a little added comfort in our lives – something that will make our everyday just that bit easier. Enter, our memory foam shoes. If you’re looking for a touch of comfort, tailored to fit your feet, memory foam shoes are a must-have.

What are Memory Foam Shoes?

When you hear the phrase 'memory foam' you might think about memory foam mattresses. A memory foam mattress works by using the heat from your body to soften and mould to fit and support your body. When the pressure is removed the memory foam bounces back slowly – over time it remembers the shape of your body to provide excellent comfort tailored to you. Hence the name ‘memory’ foam.

Memory foam insoles in your shoes work just the same way - just in a much smaller and much more portable size than a mattress.

The important thing to remember with memory foam shoes is that, just as outsoles eventually wear out, so do memory foam insoles. Be sure to keep an eye on your footbed. If you’re not experiencing the same plush comfort you did when you first slipped on those memory foam wonders – it might be time to replace them!

To get you started we’ve put together a list of recommended memory foam shoes for women and for men to try out if you’re looking to put a spring in your step. But before we jump into our recommendations, let's explore the benefits of memory foam shoes.

We recommend trying on memory foam shoes at home or in store to see how they feel before making your purchase. You can always chat to our friendly staff in store who can help you make the right decision.

The Benefits of Memory Foam Shoes

Memory Foam Shoes

Stepping into a pair of memory foam shoes feels like a personalised embrace for your feet. At Pavers, we believe that every foot deserves that cushioned, contoured comfort, making long days on your feet feel like a walk in the park.

There are lots of benefits for memory foam footbeds that you might want to consider when looking to purchase a pair.

Redistribution of Weight

Memory foam works by rebalancing the weight of each step and distributing it across the entirety of the foot, rather than in a few specific places, such as the balls of the feet or heel.

Memory foam is beneficial for those who experience pain in these problematic pressure points, relieving pain and overall discomfort.

Shock Absorbing

The springy nature of memory foam means it has great shock absorbing properties. With each step the memory foam absorbs the impact of your foot hitting the ground, as well as the downward force when you push off again to take your next step. Shock absorption helps to prevent your feet feeling tired so you can go about your day with ease.

Plenty of Flex

Memory foam shoes offer flexible comfort that moves with you, so they won’t restrict your movement as you go about your day. Comfortable, flexible, well-fitting memory foam shoes will help keep you steady on your feet.

Memory Foam Trainers

Look Great - Feel Great

With memory foam shoes there’s no need to sacrifice on style.

From casual trainers to comfortable slip-on shoes, and even cosy slippers, memory foam shoes come in a range of styles to suit any occasion; helping you step out in style and step up the comfort factor.


Memory foam shoes also tend to be lightweight, while still offering the overall support you need.

Memory foam insoles are perfect for easy-breezy spring and summer slip-on shoes and lace-up trainers, especially when paired with breathable uppers designed to keep your feet cool.

Are Memory Foam Shoes Helpful for Plantar Fasciitis?

Shoes with memory foam can be beneficial to those who struggle with plantar fasciitis, a condition in which the plantar fascia tissue (which connects the heel bone to the bottom of the toes) becomes inflamed or even torn. This causes pain and discomfort across the bottom of the feet. Memory foam can work to alleviate the pressure on the plantar fascia – easing the pain and upping the comfort factor.

If you’re someone who experiences pain in your feet, particularly pain that makes it difficult to walk, it’s best to seek the advice of your doctor who will be able to help make recommendations based on an individual assessment.
