What Professionals Are Saying:

Dr. Hugh Cradduck

A long-time Foot Levelers wearer, I have also sold Foot Levelers products in the clinical setting to many satisfied clients. While I had great respect for the company on account of the quality of their orthotic supports, I was taken aback by the depth of not only their willingness, but also their readiness to meet a need I had never anticipated.

In 2013 my brother's 4-year-old son lost four toes in a lawnmower accident. My brother was grateful for the creative orthotic support that the children's hospital provided. Once heads had cooled and the bill came through, he was disappointed by the exorbitant cost, knowing it would need to be replaced as his son grew. He understood that we sold orthotics at the clinic, and he asked me if the company, Foot Levelers, could produce this unique product. Very familiar with their product line, I had my doubts and told him so, but I felt compelled to inquire.

When I contacted Foot Levelers I was promptly directed to someone with technical expertise. I explained my brother's need, adding that I recognized it was nothing like the products I had long appreciated. Without hesitation, the gentleman kindly informed me that while they produce these familiar products every day, they had the technical ability to produced all manner of orthotic, including this one. After I overcame my surprise, I then remembered the concern about the cost. I told him what we were up against, and he quoted me a price well below anything I would have anticipated.

There being several orthotic producers most commonly advertised in chiropractic press, I had chosen Foot Levelers from both personal experience and respect for their quality line of products. Patient satisfaction edified this conviction. Their ability, readiness and desire to help, however, set them apart on a whole new level for me, and for my family.

I absolutely love the Foot Levelers Orthotic Center. As a high volume practice, my staff now has the ability to scan every patient that comes into the office. The new cutting edge technology helps make the scanning and ordering process so easy. MY office has tripled our orthotic orders since getting the new kiosk.

I now make scanning patients with the 3D BodyView part of my new patient evaluation routine. With the new 3D scanner, I have prescribed more pairs of individually designed Foot Levelers orthotics in the past four months than I had in the past 6-7 years with older technology. It helps patients understand the benefits, and reminds me too. I also have taken the sole insert out of every single pair of shoes that I own. Even my bowling shoes! I wear my orthotics every day.

Our patients love Foot Levelers. They find them more comfortable than other brands and very much like the fact there are models for different types of shoes. Not only are they great for helping foot, ankle, and knee pain but they reduce the stress on the spine as well, helping people hold their adjustments better.

All the Foot Levelers orthotics are top notch! Patients especially love the sandals for the summer months and the slippers for the winter. FL is always working to improve their products as well. The current models are the most durable and best variety ever offered!

I can honestly say you are one foot ahead of all the rest :) For over 30 years I have used Foot Levelers Orthotics personally and for my patient. Let's face it, I didn't stick with you because you were "OK." I stuck with you because you are the best on the planet!! You guys just keep getting better.

I recently started using The Idea that when a patient truly wishes to turn their life around health wise, It all starts with a decision. That decision is the foundation of our care plans. That's why patients start care and continue with it. Foot Levelers and their new product line fit so well into our treatment plans. In nearly every case we used Foot Levelers Orthotics, our patients were extremely appreciative of our insight to their current and future health needs.

So may comments wondering why their other doctors never recommended them. They are by far some of our most satisfied patients. So Thanks you guys, for creating an essential part of our practice now and in the future. As we grow you will be there with us with admiration and appreciation.

Anne was a 55-year-old patient severe bilateral bunion pain in her big toe, turned out 36 degrees. She was scheduled for surgery, which she couldn't do because her husband was suffering with cancer and she couldn't be off her feet for 6 weeks. I fitted her with custom inserts and 9 months later no bunion, no surgery, no pain and her big toe went from 36 degrees to 24 degrees. Now, 17 years later she is still pain free.

It's great when you have patients that you haven't seen in 2 years return because it's time to replace their Foot Levelers. You get a chance to reconnect, possibly get them back under some care, and sell another Orthotic.

I have been using Foot Levelers custom orthotics/spinal pelvic stabilizers personally and professionally for over 15 years. It has helped me personally because it allows me to perform at my best knowing that I have proper support. My patients absolutely love their stabilizers because the proof is in the results. They feel better, perform at a higher level and best of all it helps them retain their adjustments longer. Foot Levelers is the only company I trust for my patients.

What Patients Are Saying:

Thor Johansen

"This letter is many years overdue. I have been meaning to reach out to compliment you on your orthotics for some years now and I recently picked up another pair and decided it was time to put pen to paper.

I would like to share my story with you and thank you for the amazing products you provide.

I have always had foot pain ever since I was a kid. I always thought everyone else had the same experience. It was not until I joined the Norwegian Army at 18 (grew up in Norway) that I realized bad it really was. I was barely through boot camp when I was left completely unable to walk due to severe pain in both feet. I was hospitalized and eventually discharged for medical reasons. Shortly thereafter I consulted with a surgeon and was diagnosed with severe hallux valgus. I was told surgery was absolutely necessary or I would be completely unable to walk within the next ten years.

When I finally received the notice to appear for surgery three years later I was attending college in the United States and was unable to travel back to Norway for surgery. During these years I was able to walk and do short – 10 minute – runs but struggled with severe pain when spending too much time on my feet. I tried all kinds of different shoes and insoles with no relief. I had even tried other specialized molded orthotics but got no relief from anything that I tried.

Fast forward another 10 years or so. I was working with a Chiropractor in Wheaton, Illinois who recommended another pair of orthotics. He had a scanner box in his office and suggested I have my feet scanned for custom orthotics. At this point I had no faith in any kind of orthotics and had it not been for insurance covering the cost I would undoubtably said “no.” Feeling skeptical was putting it mildly.

After a couple of weeks I received my first set of orthotics from Foot Levelers. I got a set for my dress shoes and running shoes. It took some time to get used to the new orthotics but within a few months the pain gradually lifted and I was able to spend time on my feet without much discomfort. I was even able to run without pain.

In 2011 I ran my first ultramarathon, a 50 mile race, using the orthotics. By this time my feet were much better, although such long runs still created some pain. I continued running and found that with the use of the Foot Levelers I had less and less pain. I completed my first 100 mile ultramarathon in 2013 without much foot pain at all.

As I write this today, I have completed 14th 100 mile+ ultramarathons (including a 250 mile ultramarathon two years ago) along with several other long-distance runs. I just picked up another set of your orthotics last week and I was excited to put them to use.

What impresses me about your products is how amazingly helpful they have been in my recovery. I not only avoided surgery but I am able to walk and run as much as I want without any foot pain. I have to remain particular about the type of shoes I get but that’s a small price to pay. The other thing I will say is that your orthotics are extremely durable. A pair can last 2-3000 miles of running.

So with that I wanted to say THANK YOU for making an amazing product."

Foot Levelers has played an active role in my basketball career since I started wearing them as a freshman in high school. My chiropractor, also my dad, recommended them early on to properly align my ankles and feet. Their three-arch system is unique and gives me the extra support where it is needed without feeling bulky or unnatural like some orthotics feel. My custom orthotics have helped minimize pain and be able to play how I want to play on the basketball court at the college level.

Ever since we began conference play, I have been wearing the InMotion+ orthotics. They feel great and help me to perform at a high level with no pain or discomfort. Proceeding my college career, I plan on continuing playing basketball professionally overseas and my orthotics will definitely be going with me. I hope to stay active my entire life and with Foot Levelers InMotion+ orthotics this goal will be achievable.

I have scoliosis and have been in pain for at least 30 years. I purchased the inserts and flip flops. The inserts can be used in all my shoes and the flip flops are worn 90% of the time in the summer. Foot levelers are heaven sent. They are invaluable in keeping my hips and spin in alignment and are worth every penny I've spent.

With my Foot Levelers functional orthotics, I can now run up and down the halls in my office on concrete floors, get up and down out of my chair and perform my normal duties as an Office Manager without foot, knee, ankle, leg and lower back pain.

I've had custom orthotics for years, but was amazed when these arrived within a week – it was like going from a Volkswagen Bug to a Rolls Royce. I received them in June, right before I began a 530-mile backpack trip. I began the trip with some trepidation since my neuroma was still acting up. The more I walked with the Foot Levelers, the better my foot felt! Six weeks later, I finished my hike and I am ever so grateful to my Chiropractor and to Foot Levelers for helping make that possible.

Multiple Orthotics

Different Occasions / Different Orthotics


You wouldn't be caught wearing your flip-flops at work or your expensive dress shoes on the beach, would you? That's why we strongly encourage multiple pair of orthotics. If you end up getting a pair of custom flip-flops, you should also add a pair of custom orthotics for your work shoes, athletic shoes, or even get a second custom flip-flop style!

Foot Levelers also has a great selection of high-quality, comfortable, shoes for all occasions!
