Orthopedic, hard-to-fit, military
Whatever the reason you need custom-made footwear, The Foot Lab can help.
We cast, measure, scan and photograph your feet to create a 3D computer model before sending it to our top-notch manufacturing facility. There, skilled craftsmen build your shoes to exact measurements, so you get the most accurate fit possible. Once your shoes are complete, we quality check each one to make sure everything came out exactly right. Your new custom-made orthopedic shoes can be ready in just 4-6 weeks.
