Footwear Education

Ever stand infornt of a wall of shoes at a store and wonder which one is right for you? Size, length, width and arch length all contribute to fit and comfort and performance. Shoes that are too short can lead to black toenails, blisters and pain due to mechanical pressure. Shoes with too much room will lead to blistering, tripping and poor control and support for your feet. Shoes that are too narrow can lead to pain from pressure and to numb toes. With the wrong arch length, your shoes won’t match the flex point of your feet and your feet will have to work overtime to propel you forward. All these factors can predispose you to injury. Here are 5 basic steps to guide your footwear selection.

Do I have to be an athlete?

No! Our goal is to restore your ability, whatever that might be.

 
I have been wearing orthotics for more than 30 years. The orthotics that were designed and constructed for me by my pedorthist, are, quite simply, the best that I have ever had. The exercises suggested have also been extremely helpful.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom made foot orthotic: Are made from a 3 dimensional cast of your foot. The goal of custom made foot orthoses is to reduce the demand on your feet. Every pathology is different, and therefore the orthoses work to reduce stress and strain on bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and or musculature. Using our highly specialized manufacturing facility, SoleScience will have your custom orthoses to you in 3-4 days.
Off-the-shelf Orthotics

Off-the-shelf orthoses: Are pre-made to fit an “average” type of foot. These devices range from flat cushioned insoles to firm supportive devices. Typically, off-the-shelf orthoses last for about 6 months depending on weight and activity. If you’re acutely injured, do not have significant deformity (very high or low arch), are not a diabetic, and are not overweight, these devices may work well
Footwear Education
