Suitable Shoes and Other Footwear

Step Forward orthotics will work successfully with a wide range of shoes, including some backless sandals (by using Velcro).

The orthotic cups to the structure of the foot, and will not slide forward in your shoes. With backless shoes we recommend the use of Velcro dots or strips under the heel to prevent the orthotics slipping out backward from under the foot. The pictures below show a wide range of summer sandals that will easily accommodate the orthotics, and will NOT require any use of Velcro.

Our orthotics will not work with rubber 'flip flops'. They may be a problem in very tight dress shoes. The heel may slip from the shoe (especially in well-worn shoes, or court shoes). In this case, heel grip (a strip of leather that adheres to the inside of the heel of the shoe) may help. Or add an extra layer of shoe lining under the front of the foot to stop the foot going so far into the shoe. We do not recommend our orthotics for shoes with a heel height greater than 7cm (although many people do exceed this and report good results).
