The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these suggestions for those who wear orthotics:
- Choose shoes that are supportive and wide enough to comfortably accommodate your orthotics.
- When shoe shopping, bring your orthotics along to try on with shoes, making sure they fit comfortably together.
- Wear appropriate socks when shopping for new shoes.
- Have recommended follow-ups with your podiatrist to be sure your feet and orthotics are working well together.
