Shoes

Here is a partial list of shoe and sneaker shoes that I recommend.
Here are a few important notes:
  • Make sure that if you are buying shoes to go with your orthotics you bring them with you to the store.  Sometimes you need to cut out the insole to allow for the orthotic to fit better.
  • If  you are buying sandals or flip flops try to get ones with arch support.

  2. Gap Lacing
    This is for those with bump on the top of the foot and reduces the pressure by the shoe laces.
    Here is a link on how to do the lacing.

Compression Stockings 
I recommend looking for stockings 20-30mmHg these are used to help reduce swelling and assist in soft tissue recovery after activities and long periods of standing.
