BRACE-LIKE SUPPORT ORTHOPEDIC SHOES FOR CHILDREN!
 

Wide variety of colors and styles! 

(make sure to click on additional images to see all colors available)

Best of all is that we can do modifications to accommodate child's feet problems.

  

Geared to help children with special needs these shoes are made from high quality natural leather with leather lining.

  

MODIFICATIONS:

1. Shoe is flat inside. Can be used with the purpose of adding orthopedic insert.

2.  Arch support 8 mm inside the shoe.

3. Shoe elevation (wedge) to correct pronation (rolling inwardly) 1cm unless specified otherwise.

NOTE: We can make different heights of elevation on different feet or only on one foot if necessary. In that case please specify which foot.

Here is an example what can be done for PRONATION

                                         

  4. Shoe elevation (wedge) to correct supination (rolling outwardly) 1cm unless specified otherwise. Please look at the Pronation example above. The same idea to correct supination but the elevation(wedge) will be on the other side  of the shoe.

NOTE: We can make different heights of elevation on different feet or only on one foot if necessary. In that case please specify which foot.

  5. Prophylactic shoe without brace-like support.  In this case the shoes can  be used as profilactic/supportive shoes for healthy feet. They can be used to prevent  or correct i.e. flat feet. You still can add modifications. When you place an order, on check out - Step 2 you will have an option  "Add Comments About Your Order".

 What is Pronation?

This picture shows a view of the right foot as if looking at it from behind. As you can see in the picture the ankle is over pronating or rolling inwardly.


Pronation refers to the inward roll of the foot during normal motion and occurs as the outer edge of the heel strikes the ground and the foot rolls inward and flattens out. A moderate amount of pronation is required for the foot to function properly, however damage and injury can occur during excessive pronation. When excessive pronation does occur the foot arch flattens out and stretches the muscles, tendons and ligaments underneath the foot.

 

 What is Supination?

   

This time the foot is over supinating or rolling outwardly..

   

 

  

Supination is the opposite of pronation and refers to the outward roll of the foot during normal motion. A natural amount of supination occurs during the push-off phase of the running gait as the heel lifts off the ground and the forefoot and toes are used to propel the body forward. However, excessive supination (outward rolling) places a large strain on the muscles and tendons that stabilize the ankle, and can lead to the ankle rolling completely over, resulting in an ankle sprain or total ligament rupture.
