Can custom orthotics be made for any type of shoe?

Custom orthotics for different types of shoesYes, custom orthotics can be made for specific types of shoes. Most of these inserts are designed to fit many types of daily footwear, though, so you may not need special pairs. You can simply slip out your orthotics and switch them to the shoes or even sandals you plan to wear next. Other orthotics, however, can be made for specific shoe styles and purposes. Running orthotics are designed to help control and support your feet as you run, so they would be made to fit your athletic footwear. Other pairs can be designed to fit into dress shoes, and in some cases, even heels.

The best plan is to discuss your orthotics with specialists like our team at Podiatry Associates, P.C. about when and how you will use your orthotic inserts. If you want or need custom inserts for a particular pair of shoes, like dress shoes, but your ordinary ones do not fit, we may be able to help you with a specially designed pair. Other people, however, may not need this accommodation. Make an appointment at our Parker, Castle Pines, and Cherry Creek, CO, offices today to discover what is best for your feet.
