Kennedy & Associates are proud to have numerous satisfied customers who have been delighted with the comfortable yet stylish shoes we designed for them. Below are just a few examples of their feedback:
Tom (not his real name) came to Des as a last resort as he was facing the amputation of his right foot. It took 180 hours of design and engineering for Des to produce a shoe to suit Tom's condition. This helped his foot to heal. The shoe only needs some occasional readjustments, but Tom can now walk unaided, leaving his Zimmer frame behind.
Jim lost half of his foot in an accident. After Des made a mould of the remaining part of Jim’s left foot, Des was able to design a special shoe that allows Jim to walk unaided. He can now leave his Prosthesis (Artificial Limb) behind.
“I work very closely with the medical profession and the surgeons have at times been astonished at the results” – Des.
Patrick was told that he would never be able to walk again. “That was twelve years ago – he walked out of here leaving behind his crutches and has been walking unaided since”.
“The challenges are very labour intensive; it can take up to 180 hours to make one pair of shoes but the value is in seeing people walking again without artificial aids” – Des
