Around Barcelona's pharmacies

Posted on November 20, 2012 by Suecos EN

One of the things that we like the most is to meet the professionals who use our nursing shoes, chef shoes and sanitary clogs. Not too long ago, we had the pleasure to pay a visit to Olivia and Marcos, who not only wear Suecos® on a daily basis, but also sell them on their pharmacy!

Their shop is located in the charming nieghborhood of Gràcia, in Barcelona, and they almost know every costumer by their first name, something that rarely every happens in big cities nowadays.
Even though we live in a fast-paced world, some people are still looking our for their health, and one of the biggest concerns for us is to take care of your feet, who have to support you all day long. If you can walk more comfortably, why not start now?

Pharmacy in Barcelona to buy nursing shoes

So now you know: If you're ever lost in Barcelona and need anything for your health, don't doubt on stoping by Olivia and Marco's pharmacy!
On that same note… Don't you think they look awesome in their black and white Thor?

Walking is good for our bodies...

... and also helps us to strengthen our memory.

A study by Professor Kirk I. Erickson of the University of Pittsburgh of about 300 seniors assures us that walking long distances helps reduce brain atrophy in patients with Alzheimer's disease in its early stages.

The hippocampus region of the brain tends to shrink slightly with age, but thanks to regular exercise cerebral gray matter tends to shrink less.

Research conducted between 1998 and 2008 confirmed in 2004 that patients who walked around 10km a week had better cognitive abilities and reduced chances of developing Alzheimer's disease by up to 50%.

We suggest a few tips to start walking long distances:

- Stretch the spine sideways and backwards with the head aligned with your spine.
- When walking, swing your arms in order to keep the pace of the movement.
- Supports the heel first and then the rest of the foot to make contact with the ground.
- Always carry a bottle of water to hydrate.
- Use safe and comfortable shoes to avoid slipping.

Alzheimer's currently affects 26 million people so a preventive cure as walking can help us in the future to avoid this evil.

ProFASHIONal, who?

Posted on September 20, 2012 by Suecos EN

Lately we’ve been thinking about the relationship between work wear and fashion. It seems that in the current market, these two concepts are not compatible, but then we think about out professionals, we see creative, passionate people with highly rewarding jobs that are also highly demanding.

We also understand that most of these jobs, whether you’re a nurse, a doctor, a chef or a beautician, require the use of uniforms. In almost all cases, boring uniforms. We’ve been asking ourselves: why do uniforms have to be boring if our professionals are not boring? The way we dress, even at our work place, should be a reflection of who we are, and since we know you’re an amazing professional we want you to look like an amazing profashional.

What is a profashional then? Well, a profashional is you, dear reader. You are concerned about your health, your performance, about doing your very best and looking your very best.

Suecos® has teamed with the best designers to develop models that will not only help you feel great during your working hours but to also look incredible while you do so thanks to our sleeker designs and playful colors.

We recently went out to shoot our latest look book, and we were thinking about you all the time: we want you to see yourself reflected in them, so that we encourage you to send us your picture and so that we can start building an amazing community of profashionals like you.
