Whether you are on your feet all day for work or you engage in an active lifestyle, proper orthotic footwear is essential. Contrary to popular belief, the most common and popular brands of footwear are often the least supportive.
Large corporations spend millions of dollars on marketing and advertising, but not enough on orthotic footwear design and construction. At Streetsville Orthotic Clinic, we offer our expertise on orthotic footwear brands/models and which would be most comfortable for you based on your gait and foot type. Our feature brand Etonic is only retailed and offered by foot specialists. We carry in stock the Etonic Jepara which is suitable for any activity from everyday comfort walking to running marathons and cross training. We also carry in stock the Etonic Minado. This model caters more to special foot conditions but is also constructed for everyday comfort walking.
The lifespan of a foot orthotic should be measured not by when the finishing touches (the cover material) wear out but by how long it meets the foot’s changing needs for support, correction and pressure redistribution. If your symptoms begin to return it is a good idea to have your orthotic reassessed to determine if modifications or a new device are necessary.
