We are delighted to introduce Chris Erikson and Lisa Hinchcliff who will jointly present
‘Fabulous Nails, Feet and Footwear’

CHRIS ERIKSON owns and operates Comfoot Footwear LTD - Chris started out in the back room of a podiatry clinic fitting shoes for people with problematic feet. The range started out with orthopaedic styles but over time the range has developed into more comfortable, everyday footwear with more styles. “We have developed our own styles to meet different types of foot conditions especially those with swollen and diabetic foot conditions. The challenge for us is to have nice looking shoes, whist accommodating various foot conditions that are safe and comfortable”. Comfoot Footwear does exactly that!

LISA HINCHCLIFF is a Registered Podiatrist with more than 25 years clinical experience.
Lisa studied podiatry in Wellington and has been in her own podiatry practice for most of her career. She has successfully established and manages two very busy podiatry clinics in Auckland. Lisa’s goal is to ensure her patients can run and walk in comfort. She enjoys dealing with all aspects of podiatry from Plantar Fascia pain, Verrucae, Ingrown toenails to Achilles tendonitis. Lisa’s favourite saying is “prevention is better than cure”.

All welcome and we look forward to seeing you there!
