Jaco Shoes - Danish made quality footwear
The front part of the Jacoform shoe is mainly fan-shaped,
so that the toe rays can be straight,
and thereby allow a light spreading of the toes.
The contour of the shoe is softly rounded,
not cut obliquely from big toe to little toe
so that to the extent possible it fits most shapes of feet,
with equally long big toe and second toe.
Good "floor-to-ceiling height" for the toes
with maximum height by the big toe,
so that there is room for a light upwards or downwards movement
(bending) of the toes inside the shoe.
The sole is without welt
which makes the "take-off" movement over the big toe easier,
and as far as the width is concerned,
this gives the shoe a narrower look.
Relatively short and narrow shoe opening,
and relatively long lacing (four eyelet’s),
combined with a cup-shaped heel base
as well as a small elevation under the posterior inner part of the arch,
ensuring a firm grip in the rear half of the shoe
and effectively counteracting a forward slide in the shoe.
The small elevation under the posterior inner part of the arch,
right in form of the ball of the heel,
prevents the foot from collapsing inward (valgus ankle) during standing.
It is not an arch support, the arch can move freely,
as only the rearmost third of the arch is supported.
Apart from the heel cup and stop, the inside shoe bottom is horizontal
or level in the part between the ball of the heel and the ball of the foot,
as this part of the foot has no external curvature, on the contrary,
it requires full contact with the underlying part.

the shoe bottom is provided with a layer of felt under the skin
which after some use of the shoe
makes an individual shaping of the shoe bottom possible,
giving a larger contact surface
and forming a small pad in front of the ball of the foot
- a stop - which together with the heel stop mentioned
prevents the foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
