Orthotics + Shoes = Best Outcome
Your Custom Made Orthotics are only part of the equation. Supportive foot wear is paramount in obtaining all the goals your Pedorthist had set for your treatment.

 

Your Pedorthist has reviewed what to look for when you go shoe shopping. Below are helpful reminders
Wide Base of Support When the area indicated by the arrows is hour-glassed, the shoes support is reduced
Strong heel counter Press heel with thumb and heel counter should not bend
Good Forefoot Rocker The shoe should roll off the toe Good Flex points When the heel and toe are pressed together the shoe should flex where the toes naturally bend
Strong torsional stability! Wow that is a mouthful. You do not want your shoe to ring out like a dish rag.
