Ascent is an athletic footwear brand, engineered in Australia. We have an exclusive relationship with The Athlete’s Foot and stand for family values and needs, providing quality footwear at an affordable price.

As an Australian footwear company, we are concerned about the development of children’s feet. We value research, development and engaging with the medical community to provide high quality supportive footwear. We advocate education to promote foot health and safety. As part of our social responsibility we offer free educational lessons for school children. Most people are not aware that adult foot ailments frequently have their origins in childhood. Neglecting foot health also invites problems in other parts of the body such as the legs and back.

Through our school education program and participation in the community we hope many ailments suffered by the next generation will be diminished.

Delivered in kindergarten and child care centres, this fun incursion prepares students for life in the school yard, an environment where correct footwear is an essential part of every day.
