Orthofeet Debuts Stylish Stretchable Shoes
March 01, 2003
Orthofeet introduces stylish stretchable shoes designed for patients who need extra protection, but do not want to compromise on styling.
The shoes' unique design combines suede leather and spandex, which is both elastic and breathable. The shoes stretch to conform to the contours of the foot, accommodating deformities, such as bunions and hammer toes, and eliminating pressure on diabetic feet with lesions, poor circulation, and edema.
Additional comfort features include an anatomical last, featuring added depth and width across the midfoot and forefoot; ergonomic outsole construction, designed to reduce dorsiflexion stresses at the forefoot and facilitate ambulation; seamless lining; and a moldable, high-quality diabetic orthotic (Medicare approved for code A5509). Shoe cost is $39 a pair; orthotic cost is $9 a pair.
