Complete Footwear Solutions

We are a local store dedicated to helping people find the appropriate footwear, and footwear solutions for problem feet. 

What is a Pedorthist?

A Pedorthist is a health care professional who specializes in the use of footwear and supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs. They are trained in the assessment of lower limb anatomy and biomechanics, as well as the appropriate use of corrective footwear including shoes, shoe modifications, foot orthoses and other pedorthic devices.
