Footwear Modification

What is Footwear Modification?

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.

The Foot Lab can change your existing shoes to accommodate differently-sized legs or feet. For differently-sized feet, we gently stretch your off-the-shelf shoes to fit. If your legs are different lengths, we add a larger sole to your existing shoe on the shorter side, giving you a more natural walk with less impact with less strain on your body.

It all starts with a full assessment of the way you walk, stand and move.

Our Services

We cast, measure, scan and photograph your feet to create a 3D computer model before sending it to our top-notch manufacturing facility.

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.

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.
