Orthopedic Footwear

Orthopedic shoes may help to alleviate pain, correct gait abnormalities, and promote better overall foot health. Talk to your certified pedorthist to see whether over the counter orthopedic shoes or custom orthopedic shoes would benefit you.

Why Use Orthopedic Shoes?

OTC Orthopedic shoes are specialized footwear designed to provide comfort and support for individuals with various foot and lower limb conditions. These shoes are engineered with better quality materials meant to last longer than your average shoe. They can vary in design and style, from athletic to casual to dress. Some special features of orthopedic shoes include a strong shank that won’t bend (the back half of the sole), a sturdy heel counter (the material around the heel) that keeps your ankle in place, a wide/deep toe box, and cushion for your foot. They also should contain a removable insole so you can easily slip your pair of orthotics inside.

Orthopedic shoes can benefit people with a range of conditions, including:

  • Flat Feet or Overpronation/High Arches or Supination
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bunions and Hammertoes
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
