Heel and Sole Elevation Lifts

Used to compensate congenital, development or surgical leg length discrepancies.  We make these lifts as discreet as possible by splitting the outsole and matching the lift material to the original sole material.

Medial or Lateral Sole and Heel Wedging

Used to correct pronation and supination.

Sole Outrigger

Increase stability by widening the sole surface and to add additional support the medial or lateral side of the shoe.

Rocker and Rigid Rocker Soles

Used to transfer pressure or improve gait. Adding rocker bottom soles to shoes helps the foot roll smoothly from heel to toe and reduces the amount of toe flexion required for propulsion.  Brands we carry the offer Rocker Bottom soles are Dansko, MBT, Finn Comfort, and Mephisto.

Sole Outflare

Outflares are added to the sole or heel of the shoe to increase the base support.

External Metatarsal Bar

Added to shoes to relieve metatarsal pain and pressure.

Velcro Strap Installation

We are able to convert lace up footwear to a Velcro strap closure to ease open and closure of the shoe and to provide more fit and adjustability to the vamp area of the foot.

Pressure Excavation

Relieves pressure from specific parts of the foot by excavating the inside material of the shoe or insole.

Navicular Arch Pad Installation

Applied to add additional medial arch support to the shoe.

External and Internal Graphite Sole Plates

Used to stiffen the shoe, eliminate flexing, and to limit the range or motion in the forefoot and midfoot. Helps to relive joint, arch, and forefoot pain.

Balloon Patching

Soft patches sewn on to the shoe to relieve pressure of sensitive areas of the foot such as a hammertoe, bunion or other protuberance of the foot.
