Why cheap shoes can prove costly


After people start wearing custom orthotics, it can be a costly mistake to pair these with cheap shoes. Costs here are not so much financial but in terms of how effective and comfortable your orthotic will prove to be.

Your choice of footwear is important because it must provide effective support for ground reaction forces as you walk. Equally, your footwear choice must also control the orthotic as it resists deforming forces placed upon it by your abnormal gait. Flimsy footwear will simply give way, leading to excessive foot and ankle motion.
