Over-the-counter insoles like Dr. Scholls (commonly misspelled as "Dr School") are quite different from Foot Levelers custom made orthotics. This article is for you to understand the difference between an over-the-counter insole like Dr. Scholls and a custom-made orthotic from Foot Levelers. Foot Levelers custom handmade orthotics provide the highest-quality, most comfortable, and most effective orthotic on the market.

A Foot Levelers custom orthotic is specifically designed for your individual feet – helping achieve a balanced foundation and stabilized pelvis. Our custom orthotics are handmade to your unique feet based on 3D scans or casts, and your doctor’s examination. Therefore, Foot Levelers custom orthotics are made to help you and your individual health issues. However, Dr. Scholls are mass-produced. Even their advertised "custom" orthotic is mass-produced into foot types and made with lower-quality materials. They cannot compare with the quality and effectiveness of Foot Levelers hand-made orthotics.
Over-the-counter insoles may initially cost less but are not made to your specific feet and only support one arch in your foot. When only one arch is being supported, it may not maintain the structure of your plantar vault, and problems can start in other parts of your body. In fact, “over-supporting” just one arch of the foot may actually cause pain and symptoms, not relieve them.
Do you experience pain daily? Maybe you have plantar fasciitis or struggle with low back pain? Over-the-counter insoles may not provide the relief you need. Individually designed Foot Levelers custom orthotics with 3-arch support, however, can.
