ORTHOTIC FRIENDLY SHOES
Orthotics are contoured inlays for shoes; designed to support, align, prevent or correct a foot problem, or simply to enhance comfort and function.
Orthotics can be over-the-counter products, such as contoured insoles; or they can be custom-made to meet your specific need. Ziera boots, shoes, and sandals come with inlays that offer cushioning and are moulded to support the foot and ultimately your whole body. These provide adequate support for many people. More commonly a new orthotic is specifically created to alleviate the foot problem. When the Ziera inlay is removed, there is room within the shoe for your custom orthotic.
ORTHOTICS CAN HELP RELIEVE AND PREVENT:
Having an orthotic will help relieve and prevent:
- Back or knee problems due to pronation or over- pronation of the feet
- Tired/ aching feet
- Heel and arch pain
- Sports- related pain
- Problems linked to diabetes
- Problems associated with arthritis
