Orthotics, and Orthopaedic Footwear


Generally, the main function of orthopaedic shoes is to provide more support for the feet and ankles than is accomplished by basic footwear. The exact design for the shoes will vary, depending on the nature of the particular health problem of the wearer. For example, different types of orthopaedic shoes would be used to provide relief for such condition as bunions, hammertoe, or fallen arches. There is no one design for the orthopedic shoe that will effectively work for all types of foot or leg problems.


I am often asked to make specialist footwear for specific orthotic and orthapeadic problems and am very happy to provide this sort of service.

One off Gibson

This pair was made for a Darryll who couldn't walk for more than 5 minutes due to arthritic pain brought on by constantly flexing his feet. They were built on a shoe last so his foot is relatively flat but with the underside curved so he just rolls along in them. He walks pain free now.
