FootLevers offers many varieties of Orthotics and choosing the correct one can be overwhelming. We are always available to help, but here are some guidelines to help with the decision process. Please stop in or call with any questions (252) 261-5424.
Step 1- Choose Shoe Style
Orthotics are categorized based on the type of shoe they are going to be used for. You can choose from:
|Dress Length (typically shoes with a more narrow toe that would not be able to accommodate a full length insert)|
|Full Length (typically used in sneakers or other shoes with laces where the factory lining inside can be removed)|
|Flats and 1" Heels (also called 5th Avenue 1", these are designed for flat shoes and low heeled shoes)|
|Heels (also called 3/4 Dress Stabilizers, these are designed for tight fitting dress shoes and heels where factory lining cannot be removed. These work best in heels under 2")|
Step 2- Choose Top Cover
The top cover of the orthotic is best chosen based on activity level. You can choose from:
|Luxury Top (moisture resistance to repel water or dampness, made with Lambson Leather™ to provide durability and softness)|
|Comfort Top (offers extra shock absorption to decrease stress on the foot. Best for people on their feet more than 50% of the day)|
|Tough Top (moisture resistant, provides heavy-duty, sturdy support with extra durability. Features a rugged leather top)|
