Over-the-counter (OTC) orthotic insoles are foot supports made from various materials including foam, leather, and plastic. OTC insoles are designed to go inside your shoe and provide some type of relief. OTC insoles are popularized by clever branding and packaging techniques and can be bought at local pharmacies and grocery stores. Some are marketed as providing additional comfort. Others promise to relieve pain from common conditions like bunions, plantar fasciitis, and arch support issues. Additionally, you can buy OTC insoles for a variety of shoes like high heels, athletic shoes, and boots, so as to seemingly work with every consumer’s lifestyle.
The wait is over (well, close enough). Spring is just around the corner, which means…
It’s flip-flop time, hooray!
But don’t settle for just any flip-flop; ask your doctor about the world’s healthiest: Foot Levelers’ custom orthotic flip-flops, made just for your feet and your body based on a 3D scan of your foot.
What’s the big deal about our custom orthotic flip-flops?
We’re pleased to report that we’ve finished building his pair of custom orthotics and they’ve already made their way across the pond to Drs. Bloom and Greenfield at Stanmore Chiropractic Clinic outside of London, England. Rory and his family will come back to the clinic soon to pick up his new orthotics and make sure they’re just right (they live several hours away), and we’ll keep you posted when they do!
Here’s Tammy on our team holding Rory’s new custom orthotics before we shipped them out.
We hope Rory enjoys his new orthotics, and that they’ll help him grow into a stronger, healthier young man. You can give to support Rory’s recovery here.

Get to know our brand new custom orthotic footwear styles below…
1. The feet are the body’s foundation. Just like a building, fixing problems in the foundation can help with problems throughout the structure.
2. “Bad” feet are linked to bad backs—the research proves it. Fixing bad feet can make a huge difference in the treatment of low back pain.
3. Your feet may feel just fine—but they could be causing problems up above. Foot imbalance or dysfunction is often “silent,” but it can have ripple effects, transferring problems (and pain) to the low back.
MEDIA ALERT: To celebrate 65 years of relieving pain and improving patient outcomes, Foot Levelers launched an exciting, year-long patient sweepstakes: “Where Have Your Orthotics Taken You?” (“WHYOTY”). There’s a prize for every month; April’s was recently revealed to be a pair of Brooks Shoethotics®. Brooks are the go-to shoes of serious runners; our Brooks Shoethotics combine this exceptional brand with Foot Levelers custom-made orthotics built in.
Whether it’s running their first marathon or walking to the mailbox pain-free, patients who post their photos and/or videos of them “in action” with their orthotics to Foot Levelers’ Facebook page are entered to win a fabulous WHYOTY prize each month.
“My Foot Levelers took me hiking through an old volcano on the island of Hawaii!” said Danielle Evans of Michigan, January’s winner. “I never travel without them. Two foot surgeries and metal in my feet have made me so thankful for the support they offer my three arches (or lack there of), the lightweight design, and soft foam inserts. I had tried ones from my foot doctor who did my surgeries and the hard inserts made my feet hurt worse! Foot Levelers orthotics are a life changer!”
It’s easy for patients to enter WHYOTY. Here’s how:
1) Posts a photo or video to our Facebook page of an activity in which you’re wearing Foot Levelers orthotics or orthotic footwear.
2) Say a few words about what’s happening and where.
3) Each post, post like, and post comment equals entries into a monthly sweepstakes. At the end of the month, we announce the winner!
The more you post, and the more your friends “like,” share, and comment on it, the greater the chance of winning that month’s prize!

Check out this coverage on Foot Levelers’ participation in this weekend’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. We’re on-site to present to the Professional Football Chiropractic Society (PFCS), also known as the 32 Chiropractors who officially serve the 32 teams of the NFL.
About the NFL Scouting Combine: Each year in February, over 300 of the very best college football players are invited to Indianapolis to be considered for eligibility in the upcoming NFL Draft. They’re joined by NFL execs, coaching and training staff, healthcare personnel and more to be evaluated for the opportunity of a lifetime. This intense four-day job interview is a thrilling time for athletes and a vital step in achieving their dreams of playing in the NFL.
We’ll be talking to the PFCS and others about the clinically proven benefits of Foot Levelers custom-made functional orthotics on the field: how they can help treat and prevent sports injuries while improving biomechanics and proprioception. Already, many of the world’s elite athletes trust Foot Levelers custom orthotics to stay on top of their game. Shouldn’t you?
Looking for a custom-made orthotic to support you through your toughest, most grueling workouts and competitions? Consider Foot Levelers’ XP3® and XP3+™–guaranteed to provide results on the road, the field, the gym… Wherever you want to beat your best time or crush the competition.
For shorter term intensity: The original XP3 is whisper thin, feather light, yet a powerhouse of support. Revolutionary MPAX™ material throughout absorbs up to 90% of shock, shielding your feet and lower extremities from pain and strain. It slips comfortably into cleats and most low profile athletic shoes.
For the long-haul: XP3+ doubles up on MPAX, making it ideal for the endurance athlete. XP3+also features brand new MPAX Pro™ in the forefoot–it amps up propulsion at toe-off for the competitive edge.
MPAX is the most cutting-edge protective material on the market, and only Foot Levelers has it. Lightweight, thin and breathable, MPAX instantly “freezes” at the moment of impact to shield the feet and body from the harmful effects of shock.
MPAX helps you go harder, longer.
Does the view outside your window look a little something like the mess above?
If you’re located on the East Coast like we are, you may (yet again) find your city or town smothered beneath a blanket of snow today. The perfect antidote: Foot Levelers’ Versawool orthotic.
Made with 100% natural Merino wool from the Merino sheep, this super smart orthotic actually helps regulate body temperature–so it will help keep you warm and cozy on days that are anything but. Best of all, Versawool is great for spring and summer too. That same smart temperature-regulating technology will help keep you cool when temperatures rise.
Versawool also naturally wicks away moisture and fights odors, so your feet will feel (and smell) dry and fresh no matter the weather outside.
Like all Foot Levelers’ functional orthotics, Versawool orthotics are custom-made based on a scan or cast of your feet, so you get support that’s 100% individually-designed just for you. Just like snowflakes, no two pairs of feet are the same. Shouldn’t something as critical as support for your body’s foundation be just as unique?
Talk to your Chiropractor about Versawool today!
A couple of other nifty points about our custom orthotic waterproof flip-flops, Fiji for her and Maui for him: they’re super light-weight and they float, so if a wave tries to steal one away, you can easily pluck it from the water before it’s gone for good. Bright colors like Palm Green (shown below) and our Black Chevron pattern make them easy to spot on the water.
Below our ever-diligent product tester checks out how Fiji “performs” in a seaside hammock. We’re pleased to report that Fiji scores a 10 out of 10 here, too. Talk to your Chiropractor about getting a pair today!
If you’re located on the East Coast (like we are), you’re probably dreaming of somewhere warm and balmy, where the white stuff covering the ground is sand, not snow. If you’re ready to escape, be sure to pack your Foot Levelers custom orthotics or custom orthotic footwear–like our orthotic flip-flops, now available in waterproof styles for him and for her. Our products are designed to help keep you comfortable, healthy and on the go–we guarantee it.

Shoethotics®, for the record, are Foot Levelers’ line of healthy, high-quality footwear fitted with your custom-made orthotic. Shoethotics are great because they take the guesswork out of choosing footwear that’s actually good for you, plus you’ll typically spend less on the shoe-orthotic combo than you would if you purchased these products separately.
