Wearing Recommendations

Everyone has a different experience with Revs. Our Customer Reviews are great for showing all the different uses and benefits – here’s our suggestions on when and how to wear Revs Reflexology Shoes.

It is recommended you wear Revs at your own pace until you become accustomed to them. Only you will know how long to wear them for. Some people start with just 10 to 30 minutes each day, some perhaps wear them for a few hours, and some people can wear them all day every day from Day 1.

When you first start wearing Revs Reflexology Shoes some people can find their feet a little sensitive, and some people relish the deep massage right away! Our recommendation is that you wear them gradually, starting with short periods of time (around 10 to 30 minutes each day). If your feet are sensitive, it may also help to wear socks with them at first. This is similar to receiving reflexology treatments, where you may feel some discomfort where there is congestion or an imbalance in your reflexes when they are first worked by a therapist. Each person is different, so it is important to extend the wear time at your own pace.

It will normally take three days to three weeks to become used to wearing Revs. After a few weeks your feet should feel used to them, and in fact many people then wear Revs all day, every day. They become so comfortable they don’t want to take them off, so they buy a pair for outdoor use and a pair for use as slippers!

Are Revs for indoor and outdoors?

Yes, we have tried to develop a range that are suitable for all seasons, and for indoor and outdoor use. We are still building our range, so do make sure you tell us what you styles you would like to see us make!

For now we have a range of flip flops for the spring and summer season, in so many colours there is sure to be one there for everyone’s taste!

We also have the Revs Clever Clogs, which many people asked for as they needed to wear closed-toe shoes for work. We also recommend these as house shoes or slippers. You can wear these with or without socks – if you wear socks the massaging effect will be a little less than if you wear your bare feet, so it may depend on how you’re feeling or if you’re cold, whether you wear socks or not.

Our Revs massage insoles are great for the winter and for all other shoes you wear. They are great for many foot conditions as they can support flat feet, soothe tired feet, help with plantar fasciitis, morton’s neuroma, diabetes, corns and callouses. They are also great of you have cold tootsies as they will help imrpove your bllod flow and increase your circulation.

Our aim is to provide a range of products that you can wear all your round so you are always getting the benefits and comfort of Revs!

Revs Stores and Online

What is the difference between Kenkoh and Revs?

We started selling the Kenkoh brand about 10 years ago, and have recently discontinued them to replace them solely with Revs. Kenkoh was limited in style, colour and availability, and we wanted to offer the benefits of reflexology massage footwear to a wider audience on an ongoing basis. We wanted to create better availability, a bigger range of styles, more exciting colours and versatility to our footwear. We are pleased to present Revs as a stylish, therapeutic massage sandal or slipper. You can dress them up or dress them down, wear them smart or casual, indoors or outdoors, whether you are old or young, fit or infirm. Revs offers something for everyone. Our reviews speak for themselves and we are delighted with such lovely personal feedback we receive in how Revs have helped the health and well-being for so many of our customers.

www.kenkoh.co.uk still exists and we sell Revs on that website too, mainly because we have such a big customer following who are used to going there. There is also some Kenkoh stock still remaining which we continue to still there. We would suggest buying on revsstore.com going forward now as we are concentrating our efforts here and we can offer better delivery rates, especially for international orders, and you can choose to pay in your own currency too.

Where can I buy Revs? Do you have any Stores?

Revs is exclusively an online brand. So we do not have any stores. We sell mainly through our own website, www.revsstore.com, but we also sell through Amazon globally, so if you are an Amazon Prime member it might benefit you to order from there to get Free Next Day Delivery. We hold more stock than Amazon though so you may not always find what you are looking for there, although we do try to keep them topped up!

We realise many people like to try before they buy and like to go to a bricks and mortar shop, and online is not always the preferred choice of shopping, however our return rate is super low, as most people love our shoes and don’t have a need to return. We do receive some exchange requests, mainly for size, but occasionally for style or colour too, and this is totally fine. We are more than happy to exchange your shoes, as long as they have not been worn of course.

It is wise to check the size chart before you buy so you don’t have the inconvenience of exchanging and you can start wearing your Revs as soon as you open the box!

Oh, we also sell through original website www.kenkoh.co.uk – but this offers all the same products as www.revsstore.com now and we recommend you buy through revsstore.com as we can offer better delivery options here.

As always if you want more information, please call us or email us a customerservice@revsstore.com and we will do our very best to help you asap!

Revs Sizing

What Size Should I order?

Revs® Sizing is important. Please ensure you order the size that fits your feet, please don’t worry if this is different to your usual size. We have created Revs specific sizing charts to try to ensure everyone receives the right size first time. We want to ensure this is accurate as possible for you to save on exchanges, as we know you will want to start wearing your Revs as soon as you receive them! It is OK to order two sizes if you are unsure and return a pair.

The best way is to measure your feet in centimetres as this provides the most accuracy, however we also appreciate you are busy and just want to order now! So please see the sizing chart below, but do phone us or email us at customerservice@revsstore.com if you have any queries or want to clarify.

Measuring Your FeetIf you have time to measure your feet, place your foot on a flat surface with your heel against a straight edge. Place a ruler beside your foot touching the straight edge your heel is also touching, then take the length in centimetres from the tip of your longest toe to your heel. Please be aware that your longest toe may not always be your big toe.

Health Benefits

Can Revs Massage Shoes or Insoles help with Fibromyalgia?

We have a great article about Fibromyalgia we wrote in our blog about this, it makes for interesting reading!

When will I start to feel the benefits?

People have reported feeling better after wearing their Revs for just a few weeks, although bear in mind this depends on how often and how long you wear them.

You may feel subtle changes at first, and then realise you have experienced bigger improvements in your health over time. Ailments, discomforts and illness may be alleviated or even disappear, and you may feel your mood and energy levels have really improved!

The Revs footwear will improve your circulation, and stimulate your body’s own organs and systems to work at their optimum levels. The body has its own powerful healing response, and reflexology aims to stimulate this into normal functioning and achieve its natural balance or equilibrium. It is important to drink plenty of water when you are wearing Revs.

Wearing your Revs will have a similar effect as a having a reflexology treatment – the massaging action of the nodules will dislocate and dissolve accumulated waste and toxins in the soles of your feet. Drinking more water than normal will help to flush out those wastes. (Please note their health benefits will also depend on other lifestyle factors, and medical conditions you may have. For example, if you smoke you are unlikely to receive the same level of health benefits in the short or long term).

Are Revs Reflexology Shoes Scientifically Proven to Improve Health?

In 2004 there was a research study conducted by the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine which provided modern scientific evidence of the health benefits of Reflexology Shoes. The premise of the study was that the Reflexology Massage Sole can ease or prevent fatigue. Tiredness is a serious problem for people in our stressful modern society. Various alternative treatments and health products are gathering attention for relieving tiredness and associated complaints and illnesses. There is however little research on how such sandals affect tiredness. In this research, the health benefits of massage sandals were examined, a simple health product anyone can use, to see its capability in preventing and easing tiredness. The findings of the study concluded that after wearing the Reflexology Sandals, participants had:

  • more energy
  • a pulse rate that remained significantly lower/improved circulation
  • reduced swelling (in the feet and legs)
  • reduced foot pain
  • a warmer, happier mood

Will I feel the same results as other people?

Most probably not. Everyone is unique – your experience will be based on your health and lifestyle. Revs are suitable and useful for everyone, old and young, fit and not so fit.

Revs have been recommended as a great recovery shoe for marathon runners and athletes. But don’t worry if you are a couch potato, because can Revs can also offer lots of benefits.

The massaging effect from wearing Revs footwear will stimulate the reflexes on your feet, and based on the principles of reflexology, this will have a corresponding impact on your organs, glands and muscles in your body.

If your health and lifestyle is fairly poor, you may experience discomfort or sensitivity when you first start wearing Revs, this is because there are areas of congestion in your body and correspondingly in your feet. This congestion will dispel with the massaging effect of the Revs nodules.

Cleaning your Revs

How do I clean my Revs?

It is very easy to clean your Revs. We recommend our Cleaning Brush, tried and tested as the best one to use for dry cleaning in between all the nodules. Given the spaces in between the nodules dust, dirt, skin etc can gather over time, so it is wise to give them a brush frequently to keep them looking sweet. You can also use the brush with water and if necessary a little mild detergent to scrub them if they are super dirty! Do not use any bleach or strong detergent, or use abrasive brushes on the nodules as you risk damaging the nodules.
