Custom Foot Orthotic Modifications

All Orthotics are NOT Created Equal text with Arizona Logo

We Have Options

-Change the Length-

From full to short

  • Best placed directly over the shoe insert already inside.
  • Note: may also be used in tight constricting footwear without the insert; i.e., ballet, running.

From short to full

  • Best option for footwear with a removable insert.
  • Simply remove the “factory installed” insert and replace it with the full-length custom orthotic.
  • Unable to remove the insert?
  • Short length may be your best option then.

-Change the Width-

From standard to narrow

  • Best for tight constricting footwear. Dress shoes for men. Flats and certain heels for women.

From standard to wide

  • Best for diabetic feet.

-Change the Heel Cup-

From standard to shallow

  • Best for tight constricting shoes. Helps keep the heel from rising up and out of shallow footwear. 

From standard to deep

  • Best for feet requiring extra foot/ankle stability.

-Change the Top Cover-

From Ultrasuede to matrix, matrix to Ultrasuede, or no top cover

  • The matrix top cover is anti-microbial & anti-bacterial.
  • No top cover: remove the top cover and underlying padding – just the plastic shell remains.

-Lower the Arch-

Decrease the height of the arch

  • Sadly, sometimes that favorite flat or heel is a bad match for your corrected foot shape.
  • However, we can lower the arch to help the foot fit the shoe, but this does reduce the ability of the orthotic to work as intended.
  • Note: we are not magicians. If your arch 1.5” high yet the footwear you’re shopping for is only 1” high, there is not enough room in this shoe for your foot. Not all footwear is made for all feet.

-Adjust the Padding-

Increase or decrease the thickness of the padding between the top cover and plastic shell

  • 2mm comes standard on a short length and 3mm on a full, but we can do anything.
  • Ballet slippers for example can be so constricting that one may choose just the plastic shell and forgo padding and a top-cover altogether.
