Do diabetic foot conditions benefit from orthotics?

Yes, orthotic therapy is an integral part of diabetic foot care and certain medicare plans. Supporting the foot, dispersing weight evenly and limiting movement reduces the chances of blisters, infection, and other foot damage. For more information please contact your physician.

Do you offer a satisfaction guarantee?

Fitthotic custom orthotic footbeds are designed to enhance comfort and performance in daily activities. They are custom molded to a model of your foot and require a "break in" period lasting up to 10 days to adjust to your footwear. Different types of shoes will effect the fit. Neutral athletic shoes and boots with removable inserts work best. If you have difficulty during this "break in" period, we are available for advice and adjustments as needed. If we cannot resolve fitting issues to your satisfaction within thirty (30) days of receipt of your custom inserts, you will receive a full refund upon request. Our goal is to exceed your expectations.

Do your orthotics fix pronation issues?

Yes, our product corrects pronation.  We start with an impression of your feet. This information is then scanned into a CAD computer program where we correct and balance the rear foot, mid foot and forefoot. After your foot impression has been balanced, we send the corrected file to a CNC machine where a reusable, balanced foot model is created. From there we heat and vacuum form different combinations of materials around the corrected foot mold to create a FitThotic custom footbed.

We always make a pair - right and left - and offer different styles: High volume, Medium volume and Low volume for different types of shoes. Most women will end up with a high volume for athletic types of shoes and a low volume for dressier shoes and boots. The first pair is $169.00 which includes preparing your foot model, additional pairs are $ 95.00 as long as we have your foot model. We will save your foot model for one year after the most recent purchase to accommodate and expedite additional pair purchases.
