Custom Inserts and Insoles

What are Custom Inserts & Insoles?

Your shoes or boots fit much more comfortably with a custom-made insert or insole. A custom-fit insert or insole reduces strain on your body caused by walking or standing, improving your joint and muscle health.

At The Foot Lab, we start with a full analysis of your gait – the way you walk and move. From there, we make a cast of your feet and get to work creating the right foot orthotic for you. Tom Lemke chose a specific Lab – Biotech orthotic design in Nova Scotia – because he is picky about what he provides to his clients. The orthotics are usually ready in 2-3 weeks but can be ready in one week for an extra charge.

When your leg lengths or foot shapes don’t match, off-the-shelf footwear is uncomfortable and impractical. You might walk with a limp or have persistent pain in your feet, legs or back.

For the High-Risk foot we provide shoes and special inserts. These can help protect your feet from developing ulcers or to stop the ulcers from re-developing.
