Orthopaedic shoes are specially designed to provide the support your feet need. Orthopaedic shoes typically have firm, low heels, wide toes to eliminate pinching, and a strong shank for proper heel and ankle support. Many orthopaedic shoes are designed with removable inserts, to accommodate custom orthotics for the ultimate comfort and support to suit your individual needs.
Orthotics are custom made inserts that fit in your shoes and are intended to correct an abnormal, or irregular, walking pattern. These inserts are much more than arch supports in that they are fitted for your feet only. They perform functions that allow standing, walking, and running to be more comfortable and efficient, by altering slightly the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface.
This can also lead to a reduction or elimination of foot, knee, hip or back pain.
