What shoes can I wear my orthotics in?

Your orthotics are only as good as the footwear you put them in. Proper footwear selection and fit is vital to the success of your orthotics.

Shoe Style – Your pedorthist has carefully designed your orthotics for your most important footwear, it may not fit into all of your footwear. For example, an orthotic designed for running shoes will not fit into dress shoes. If you require support in your dress shoes, we would be happy to discuss other options with you.

Shoe Features – For most people, desirable shoe features include a strong heel counter (the cup your heel fits into), torsional stability (the shoe is difficult to twist with your hands) and a correct flex point (the shoe flexes where your foot flexes).

Occasionally, you may need a footwear modification, including rocker soles, flares, or lifts. Your pedorthist will discuss these options with you.
