Ting’s life was never the same again after a wrongly taught Pilates class caused permanent damage to her spine in her postpartum. She could hardly walk and couldn’t sit down at all for a long time after the class. Through her slow, rocky and unbearably painful recovery journey, she learnt the life-changing magic of good posture, good spine health and gratitude for a healthy, pain-free body.

Unfortunately, she had to say goodbye to heels and flats as heels exert too much stress on the spine and flats do not provide any support. However, she was also unwilling to resort to traditional orthotic shoes, which are not only very expensive but also clunky and heavy. So she started Sunnystep Footwear and designed the most comfortable, lightweight walking shoes for Asian feet that provide ample support so people can stand taller, move freer and feel happier. 

At Sunnystep, our mission is to provide the best tools, knowledge and inspiration to help people move freely and happily. For more fitness knowledge on how to move freely and happily, you can visit our online magazine, Sunnystep Fitness, here.
