You can drop by the store or shop online, with confidence knowing you are shopping with the footwear experts. Why do we need orthotics?
Our feet were designed to travel on natural, soft surfaces like earth and sand, rather than hard, flat surfaces like pavements and floors. These hard surfaces force feet to roll over to make contact with the ground and this causes our arches to flatten. Because of this, rolling over of the foot (excess pronation) affects roughly 70% of the population. You may have noticed your shoes wear out faster on the outside heel. This is due to the foot landing on the outside edge first and rolling over to compensate; thus causing excess pronation.
Orthotics can help provide relief from a number of health conditions:
- Achilles pain (Achilles Tendonitis)
- Lower back pain (Lumbar pain)
- Ball of foot pain (Metatarsalgia)
- Flat feet/Fallen arches
- Heel pain
- Knee pain
- Outside knee and hip pain
