Will they fit my Shoes?

New style orthotics can be made to fit any size shoe and they are much thinner and lighter than regular orthotics.

With this in mind, an orthotic will always function better in a more supportive shoe so we still advise you to wear good fitting, comfortable shoes as much as possible, particularly when exercising or during periods of long walking or standing.

Due to the millions of different types of shoes available our Podiatrists will advise you of the best styles to suit your individual feet and activities.
