We Put Fiji to the Test: Check Out Our Latest Video!

We packed a bag and headed to the coast in our Fiji custom orthotic waterproof flip-flops recently (not only do they “defy the sea”; we’re pleased to report they’re great for breezing through airport security, too). Click here to watch us test drive a pair in the water!

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. read more

Susan Loves Her Custom Orthotic Flip-flops (and So Will You!)

We love hearing from our patients! Thanks Susan!

“I absolutely love my Foot Levelers’ custom orthotic flip-flops. The first time I tried them on was the day I was flying to Orlando for a convention. I put them on that morning, walked through the entire airport and still had them on late into the evening. My feet, knees and low back felt great and that never would have happened in any other kind of flip-flops. I have worn Foot Levelers orthotics for over 20 years so I understand the importance of wearing the right shoe with the right correction.” read more

The Pitter-Patter of Little Feet: Kids and the ‘Pedal Foundation’

We know, parents: as if you don’t have enough to worry about when it comes to your kids.  But making sure your children’s feet are healthy is important.  We’ll tell you the why and the how.

orthotics for the pitter patter of little feet

The Why: Foot problems that develop in childhood can seriously affect your child’s health now and in the future. Picture the body as a building: if the foundation is unbalanced or “off,” everything built on top of it may suffer–in your child’s body, this includes the pelvis and spine, leading to biomechanical dysfunction. Later in life, foot problems from childhood can can accelerate degenerative changes in the knees, hips, and spine. They may also put your child at greater risk for injury during sports or play. read more

    How Many Pairs of Shoes Do You Own? (And Are You Sure?)

    Let’s face it. No one wears the same shoes all the time, because there’s more to life than just the office or gym. In fact, the average American owns an average of 19 pairs of shoes at any given time!

    We challenged our employees to get out their shoes, count ’em, and take a picture. (Our “winner” so far on number of pairs owned is Corrie, 125 pairs of shoes!)

    lots of shoes

    How many pairs do you THINK you have? And how many do you ACTUALLY have?

    Answer the first question in your head, and then take a moment to do an actual count. You’ll be surprised. read more

    Pick Your Perfect Shoe, Protect Your Body’s Foundation

    What’s in a shoe?

    Consider this: the average American takes 5,900 steps a day.1  Most people will walk thousands of miles over a lifetime.

    With each step, improper footwear can cause degenerative changes in the muscles, joints and connective tissues of the feet.  Feet are the body’s foundation—when that’s compromised, everything above may shift. A body out of alignment is a body in pain, one that’s more prone to injury and disease.

    Ladies—we hope you’re listening (!), because you, especially, are at risk.  A survey on women’s shoes found that 88% of women were wearing shoes that were smaller than their feet (by an avg. of 12 cm!). Is it any wonder that 80%  reported “some foot pain” and that 76% of the women surveyed were found to have one or more foot deformity? read more
