Custom Made and Modified Footwear

At Action Orthotics & Prosthetics we provide custom made footwear, and can also modify existing footwear to address a number of biomechanical foot conditions. If you have a debilitating foot condition, please consult your physician, and we can help provide you custom made shoes, or modify your current footwear with or without custom foot orthotic intervention to help you get back on your feet.

Custom made footwear are made from a plaster of paris mold of your feet to provide optimal fit and function from the sole up, these shoes will fit you, and only you. These shoes are made directly over the mold of your feet for the best possible results. They are high quality footwear, with a higher cost associated with them due to them being fully custom made to you. Custom made footwear is sometimes funded through your extended medical plans, the ministry of persons with disability program, WCB or ICBC.

At Action Orthotics & Prosthetics we also modify existing footwear to better suit your needs.
A few of the shoe modification services we provide are:

-External Shoe Raise
-Internal Shoe Raise (up to ½”)

-External Shoe Buttress to help improve ankle stability
-Externally added rocker soles to help lessen forefoot pressures
-Re-sole existing shoes
